UPDATE: You can just use Root Explorer.
So I recently obtained a G1 which I flashed to Cyanogen 6.0, a problem it runs in to is a lack of ram: background processes like facebook and twitter and DSP manager don’t leave much room to breathe…
But, there’s a way to remove them… you need the following:
- ASTRO File Manager (market app)
- Terminal Emulator (root only)
Start off by launching ASTRO, hit search, type “.apk” (no quotes), and on the bottom select the “/” directory. After it finds all the apks, note down the names of the ones you want removed, such as twitter.apk. If you are running Cyanogen, here’s a brief guide on what can and cannot be removed. Write down the apps you want removed in notepad or on a notepad or something.
Now, launch Terminal Emulator, and type the following (hit enter at the end of each line):
(grants root permission to application)
- mount -o rw,remount /system
- rm -r /system/app/application.apk
Keep in mind that linux systems are case sensitive, so application.apk =/= AppLiCaTiOn.APK
