    • Skype_mobile.live.apk
    • Vvm.apk
    • WorkContacts.apk
    • amazonmp3_1.7.22_signed_zipaligned.apk
    • Blockbuster.apk
    • BackupAssistanceClient.apk
    • HelpCenter.apk
    There are a couple of apps I want to get rid of but haven't been able to identify:
    • 3G Mobile Hotspot
    • Corporate Dictionary
    3G is Mynet.apk

    You can check with Android Mate by selecting system apps tab, and long press for properties. It'll tell you the file name.
    No more palm or ; on BB Froyo; Droid X rooted .

    That why the app will be there no matter what?

    Also.

    There is A LOT of blur names here for a "non-blur" phone
    I meant if you're not sure what it is, don't touch it. But renaming so you can recover it should keep you safe.

    2 Questions:
    • Why would you want to dump Car Dock? That is probably my FAVORITE app on the Droid X!
    • What is Corporate Dictionary?

    Is there a way I could get the amazonmp3_1.7.22_signed_zipaligned.apk back ( that was the one deleted), thanks for all the help!!! Im a n00b to Droid and this site is just plain money!!!

    I don't use the car dock, and it's annoying when it pops up every time I put my phone back on the dock. I use Setting Profiles to automatically open Pandora when I put the car in the dock.

    I don't know what Corporate Dictionary is but I'm sure I'll never use it.

    Is there a way to do this through root explorer? I can't get the entertainment key to work in terminal emulator. Don't want to actually delete them if I don't have to.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't have an X, but I do have a rooted Droid here... instead of using all these adb commands and what not, since you guys have root now, why not just use Root Manager? Much simpler and easier.

    Thought I would post this here, it's a tweet from birdman (the guy that figured out root):

    DO NOT REMOVE BACKUPASSISTANTCLIENT if you do, get it back on there NOW! a factory reset will result in a near brick.

    YMMV

    Well, I'm trying to upload it somewhere but can't get it to work. Email me and I can send it to you.
