    So, I made the mistake of pushing an app to my /system/app folder with parentheses in the name. Trying to remove the app via ADB or Terminal just returns the error Syntax error: "(" unexpected and trying to do anything to the file in ASTRO just comes up with various errors, i.e. could not rename, move failed, could not delete, etc.

    A little help would be nice! Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Just figured it out myself. Putting quotes around the filename worked.

    Glad you figured it out! :p

    Might I recommend Root Explorer? It does what you were trying to do with Astro, and can do a lot of things you would otherwise need a terminal for.
