    I have tried everything under the sun to delete bloatware on this thing.. And nothing is working.

    I've tried the regular Ascend root instructions.
    Titanium Backup can't locate any .apk files so I can't delete the bloatware. (Titanium is updated, w/ busybox installed)

    I've tried the instructions here:

    Change things to RW, then delete.. Says it gets deleted, but when I reboot phone, bloatware is still installed.. Even tried a couple of other root explorers.

    I've even tried the instructions for the Netflix work around here:

    ES Explorer says it won't work on my on my phone.


    Is deleting bloatware not possible on this phone, or does technology just really hate me?

    Bigtop on that post you had it clearly noted that it would not work with the TapouT.

    Only thing I can think of is to get Root Explorer, Then change the permissions. Go into Root Explorer > System> App> Then make sure at the very top it says Mount R/W. If it says Mount R/O change it to R/W. You can try to change it back to R/O if it still says read only. Try both! Also, If the app is giving you trouble hold down on it until options come up, Go to Permissions Make sure all of the Read column (Column on the left) is checked and Write (In the middle) for User is checked.

    Let me know if that helped. :]

    The problem is that they put the files in a different folder. I would have to restore ( I'm running CM7 right now) to find it. Use Root Explorer and look around. If you need me to restore send me a PM and I'llrestore and locate the files and post it here. My next few days are kinda busy though.
