    I installed Cyanogen and it came with ADW. Then I installed Genesis Theme for Cyanogen and that came with Helix. I hate both and I love my Launcher Pro Beta.

    I want to delete both and before i would just go into root explorer, search ADW and delete all files that had ADW, however its not working for me anymore. It basically is still there but corrupted due to missing files

    I'm guessing I have to use terminal emulator, but I have no clue how to use this thing.

    Can anyone help me remove these two launchers. Thank you

    is it possible they are in the applications menu and you can just delete them?

    Then just go to /system/apps and delete a file that will say something like adwlauncher.apk
