I've got some apps on my rooted nook that I don't think I need (social, browser, gallery, news and weather, etc). How can I go about uninstall them? Long pressing gives me an error that Uninstall was unsuccessful.

Edit: Here's the answer

Edit: Here's the answer

deleting some apparently irrelevant ones like talk etc causes problems, careful:

Sounds like you need to root it... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=35267728

I strongly suggest using titanium backup and freezing apps rather than uninstalling them. You can save yourself some serious headaches.

It's impossible to give you any advice when you're being so cryptic, please explain in detail exactly what you've done, trying to do and anything else that relates. Telling us that you've rooted the device but don't have root access tells us exactly nothing unfortunately.
