    Thanks for pre-installing a stupid Amazon mp3 Store app on my phone that can not be deleted and it starts itself back up running in the background every couple of hours for NO REASON AT ALL.

    How do I delete this Amazon MP3 Store App? Is it impossible? I'm sick of it running in the background draining my battery. Only idiots spend $1 dollar on one single song.

    The only way to delete system/apps is to gain Root Access of your device

    Well first it is stored in memory and not draining your battery one bit. The Android OS does not work like Windows does. The apps listed in task killers (unnecessary apps) are just showing you the apps stored in memory, not the apps draining your battery. The only way to remove stock OS embedded apps is to root and use a script (usually a UI in most ROMs) to remove them. There is another way but it involves digging into the OS through Root Explorer (still need rooted), but the first way is easier unless you know exactly what you're doing.

    Ditto what Chug said. The app is not "running" in a Windows sort of way. It is simply stored there waiting to be used. It does not require any battery power to keep it in memory. It uses no cpu cycles while stored in memory. And the android system will remove it, or almost anything else, if the memory is needed for something you have requested. Empty memory, in the android system, is not a good thing.

    Why is empty memory a bad thing in the android system?

    It is not really a bad thing, it is just not a good thing as it is with other operating systems. Unused memory is wasted memory.

    If you install LauncherPro, one of the recent updates allows hiding of apps in the app drawer.

    i recently rooted and am running ultimate droid 6.00 RC2- in the setting it has a section that looks to allow you to remove some apps, but it doesnt seem to be working

    if you're still rooted... you can download a file explorer program (root explorer, astro, etc) and go to the root, then system, then i think it goes to apps folder, and in there you can delete it, or if you just rename the .apk to something like .apk1 or .bak in case you'll ever want to use it, if it's not .apk it won't be detected as an app, just wasting space. but you'll probably just want to remove it lol.
