    i'm trying to delete adw, so i went into root explorer and hit delete but says it can't because it's a read only file.

    can anyone tell me how i can get rid of this please. i have multiple homes and i just want to stick with launcherpro.

    thanx

    Did you try going into Settings | Manage Applications and just uninstalling it? Manually deleting a file is kind of a brute-force method of removing an application.
