Default Rooted phone and can't remove FIDO app

Hi guys,

I rooted my phone (SGS4 SGH-I337M) using Odin and CF Auto Root method. Root was successful. I installed Titanium Backup and uninstalled the FIDO applications from my carrier but I can't remove it from the apps menu. I rebooted the apps were removed but the FIDO folder for some reason is still there and I can't remove it... how do I get rid of fido folder?

Have you tried removing the folder via root explorer?

I did not try that, but I just downloaded ES File Explorer. How do I browse to my Apps menu via the file explorer?

You should be able to view them from data/app

If it was a system file you can view it from system/app

This is pretty strange /device/data/app is empty there is nothing there...

/system/app has a bunch of apps in it but can't find the FIDO folder...

Thanks for your help/replies btw.

That is pretty bizarre. When you're in Titanium backup is there isn't visibility for fido any longer? Also try wiping the The cache.

Searching for Fido in Titanium Backup yields no results, all that is left is an empty Fido folder in Apps. Do you mean clear the cache in recovery?

Very odd. Not sure what else you could try. Hopefully someone will come along with a solution.
