BUGS

i've found some bugs when removing cyon.apk & LGWorld.apk at system folder,the file is deleted but the apps is still listed on the home screen...can anyone verify this? do you also encounter this problem?

SOLVED....
To delete the apps from the app list,(assume u have done deleting the apps from the System folder),go to settings > applications > manage applications.

At the All tab, find remote call and LGworld apps and press it and press uninstall...then restart the phone...now enjoy the phone without the bloatware.
(Cause:when removing the apps from system folder, the file that remove is the stock apps given by LG..What left is the update version of the apps)

As for now, i manage to remove around 9 LG apps and costing around 25MB of file..
The biggest apps is WeatherWidget.apk where it cost around 15MB of space inside the system.

Do not do it unless You are skilled !
If You remove LG Launcher and do factory reset, You will end up with no laucher at all ( as laucher You installed will be wiped out )

P.S. Exactly this way I stepped into **** with my Samsung Spica some time ago
