    2 Questions:
    • Why would you want to dump Car Dock? That is probably my FAVORITE app on the Droid X!
    • What is Corporate Dictionary?

    Awesome, thanks man....... I found a few sites where the instructions were to remove the software and I ran the first line and realized what it was and wanted to find a safer way....

    Is there a way I could get the amazonmp3_1.7.22_signed_zipaligned.apk back ( that was the one deleted), thanks for all the help!!! Im a n00b to Droid and this site is just plain money!!!

    I don't use the car dock, and it's annoying when it pops up every time I put my phone back on the dock. I use Setting Profiles to automatically open Pandora when I put the car in the dock.

    I don't know what Corporate Dictionary is but I'm sure I'll never use it.

    Is there a way to do this through root explorer? I can't get the entertainment key to work in terminal emulator. Don't want to actually delete them if I don't have to.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't have an X, but I do have a rooted Droid here... instead of using all these adb commands and what not, since you guys have root now, why not just use Root Manager? Much simpler and easier.

    Thought I would post this here, it's a tweet from birdman (the guy that figured out root):

    DO NOT REMOVE BACKUPASSISTANTCLIENT if you do, get it back on there NOW! a factory reset will result in a near brick.

    YMMV

    Well, I'm trying to upload it somewhere but can't get it to work. Email me and I can send it to you.
