I installed an application that sent my phone into a bootloop. I identified the culprit via adb logcat, but obviously cannot get into the phone to delete it. I don't want to do a wipe - I have a lot of time spent customising things as is and data I don't want to lose in some apps. Is there a way from within the recovery console to delete the offending application directly to stop the bootloop?

EDIT: N/m... thought it was the app, looking closer at adb logcat, looks like it isn't... and I found a way to delete the app but the issue remains.

Going to switch ROMs, the one I'm using now is fast, but appears to be way too buggy.

if you have apps2sd
Code:
adb remount
adb shell
rm /system/sd/app/xxxx.apk (or if that doesn't work put -r after rm)
if you dont have apps to sd, i believe apps are in /data/app

i think my crappy typed-at-work commands have been quoted lol. I need to start a whole series of typed at work commands.

Also @lotherius what rom were you using?

Enomther's Rogers. May not have been the ROM but I am a bit frustrated as I have had several problems with it, and just went back to Cyanogen 4.0.4 for now. Thanks for the info.

Hi lotherius,

I'm in the same situation; How did you delete the app within the recovery? I have a Cyanogenmod 10.1 (android 4.2.2) based custom ROM with TWRP recovery right now.

Thanks in advanced!

adb uninstall badapp.apk
Or if this won't work try
adb shell
adb rm /data/app/badapp.apk
Or system app or wherever it is (may be able to just delete the data of the app too

I'm just a guy, not a techophobe so I have no idea how to get to the shell inorder to type those commands. My daughter's Macbook Pro just endlessly restarts itself unless I put it in Recovery mode or Safe mode. I suspect it is 3rd party apps causing this, but I can't delete apps from Rec. or Safe mode and no one here has put it in layman's terms.
