    I've been trying to find some way to get rid of Madden.apk, and FMRadio.apk; I've tried uninstalling/deleting them from Terminal Emulator, and renaming, uninstalling, and deleting them from the Super Manager Root Explorer; no matter what I do, I cannot seem to get rid of them at all. When trying to rename or delete them in the Root Explorer, it acts as though it has renamed/deleted the files in question, but upon refreshing, the files persists. What can I do? Am I stuck with them indefinately?

    You need to be rooted to do that.

    Rename or freeze them, removing them will cause os updates to fail

    Did you reboot after you renamed them?

    Is root explorer mounting the system? Is it stuck on r/o?

    I managed to figure it out; I hadn't Enabled Root in the settings, since the I have been able to rename the files... The only thing is, even with superuser permissions, I am unable to uninstall anything from Terminal Emulator.

    Just use titanium backup to freeze any apps you don't want. Its very simple and can be undone in no time!

    +1! Uninstalling the wrong thing can = a one way trip to sbf! Freezing or renaming is MUCH safer :)
