ive got an issue (ish?)
Some of the apps ive got in my list arent spelled the same way as the OP.
like, the car dock app? mine lists as CarHomeGoogle.apk and CarHomeLauncher.apk.
Is there anybody who can take a look at the list of APKs i have and tell me what each of them do, so i can know if i can deactivate them or not?
PM me, if you can help! thanks!
I realize I'm posting this in a Droid X forum, but it definitely helped me and got me going on my new Droid 2 Global, so I'll post here anyways. I have rooted with z4root, and I got ADB up and running on my laptop. I didn't want to load a custom ROM, as they caused some instability issues with my old D1. So I figure if I can just remove as much bloatware as possible and start with a vanilla stock ROM, that I'd be gtg. I must say that the ADB method for renaming apk's is so slick and easy it's not even funny. Long story short, here are the apk's I was able to rename to .bak without my phone getting jacked up at all:
A nice side-note here, is that while you're in the /system/app directory, you can refine your search by typing in various things after "ls". For example,
will only list the apk files in that directory, making it easier for you to find just what you're looking for. Also,Code:ls *.apk
will show you what you've already renamed so you can flip them back to apk when needed. Want to see just the widgets you've got installed currently, type in:Code:ls *.bak
It's very basic linux stuff, but some people will not know these kinds of things. You can also copy content out of your command prompt (as long as Quick Edit mode is enabled in the Properties of Command Prompt) and copy any output from ADB and paste it in a text file for easy reference later. That way you don't have to get all the way back in ADB to see your list of bak'd programs.Code:ls *Widget*.apk
Another side-note that drove me bonkers until I figured it out. I bak'd the stock Messaging.apk before I turned off its notifications. So I would get 2 text notifications, one from stock, and one from Handcent. And since Messaging was uninstalled, I had to name it back to apk, go turn off notifs, and then bak it again. So just a heads-up to anyone else that runs into the same problem, although most people in this thread probably have more common sense than I.
need some quick help. had a Droid 1 just got the droid X yesterday. rooted and running chevys X rom. when I go to the system/app folder I cant change the R/W to R/O. I can change it on other folders but not system. SU gave permission to root explorer but not sure why I cant get R/W to change for system folder. any ideas?
