To uninstall apps using ADB:
First get a list of packages installed on your NC:
adb shell pm list packages
Figure out what package you want to uninstall from that list. It might be helpful to pipe the output from the above command through some tool to search for you. For example let's say I want to uninstall Raging Thunder 2, I would do this:
adb shell pm list packages | grep -i thunder
adb shell pm list packages | find /i "thunder"
The output of which is:
So now I know the name of the package. To uninstall that package I would enter the following:
adb uninstall com.polarbit.rthunder2lite
And that's it. That's how you uninstall an app using adb.
To add icons you need to install an alternative launcher since the stock NookColor launcher doesn't let you do this. I like Zeam
. Each launcher will have its own method for then adding icons to the desktop, but typically you tap and hold down on the background and then a menu pops up with the option to add items.
