[Q] Getting rid of system apps
not again this question? Well... i am able to get rif of some system apps
I've done this getting temp root via fre3vo within adb shell. After getting root (#) i deleted the amazonmp3 and the flashplayer.as well as the /data/data/xxx dor and deleting the .dex file from dalvik cahce.
Everything was ok.... until i siwtch my phone off and on. After that the Appmanager from settings still showed me both apps are still there, and after a while they did appear again in the app menui.
Funny thing: they do not popup in the playstore asking for updating them,
Has this something to do that i have still have S-ON? From where are those apps recovered?
What i found out: first time i removed via rm install_flashplayer-1
.apk, but now i have in the system/app folder an apk named install-flashplayer.apk, without the -1.
MY intention was to get rid of some of those unnecessary apps like flashplayer, facebook, twitter and so on. I know that i will not gain any memory. I choosed this way to get rid of them cause i like to avoid all this wiping/downgrading loosing data and settings. I just want to get rid of this stuff cause i dont want have apps having those system righty and they do bother my all over again requesting updates.
I then tried to get S-OFF using the official way via htcdev, but when i tried to get the identifier token i'm getting
C:\>fastboot oem get_identifier_token
(bootloader) [ERR] Command error !!!
OKAY [ 0.008s]
finished. total time: 0.008s
What did i made wrong so far? My rom is version 2.42.405.4
which i assume is newer then the version on the page saying you need to update hboot if you have 2.42.405.2.
Any hint on how to get rid off those apps without dorngrading, installing a custom recovery and so on are welcome.
