    I installed LauncherPro from the UD menu, now I cannot update from the market and cannot uninstall.

    Not through app manager, file managers (tried God mode), or by deleting it.

    Any ideas?

    Or.......deal with no LP updates until UD9 drops and reinstall from market?

    if it's a system app for UD, you'll need to delete it thru Term Emu or Root Explorer. or, you can do it the "manual" way by going into the rom zip, deleting it, and then reflash the rom zip.

    Turn on god mod, then go into root explorer. Find the system folder then go into the app folder, inside system folder. Scroll down and find launcher pro app, long press on it and click delete. Should take care of it.

    Its under the main UD, Ultimate Settings at the very top under Quick Commands , then there is File Management hacks and the only option in that is God mode. Click it and there ya go. It allows you to temporarily edit any files on the phone.

    You can do it thru Term Emu by:

    su
    sysrw (to turn system into read write instead of read only)
    rm /system/app/launcherpro.apk (to remove from system apps)
    sysro (to turn read only back on)
    reboot (must manually type or the script wont take)

    Or if you have root explorer, make sir you press the" mount r/w" button to allow you to change system configuration. You also have to reboot to make it take, as well.

    I tried following those steps, but it is telling me that "rm failed for /system/app/launcherpro.apk, No such file or directory"
