    HELLO,

    I recently installed the froyo update manually with root from bugless. The main issue i had is that i have a magnet case and the dock keeps popeing up when my phones int he case. When people call me, i try to answer the phone, but the dock screen remains and will not let me answer the phone. it is getting REALLY annoying. Is there anyway that i can just delete the whole dock file off the phone? I tried using ROOT EXPLORER, but i could not find it. I tried changing things that sounded like it to "xxxx".apk.bak so it is reversible, but none of what I changed seem to work.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Josh

    In root explorer go to system>>>app and look for the car dock there. Make sure it is on r/w. I keep a copy of the apps i delete in a folder on my sdcard called "original" before i delete anything just in case. Hope this helps :D

    Ive tried that, the only thing associated with that in the apps folder are

    "carHomeGoogle.apk"
    "CarhomeLauncher.apk"

    Both of which ive renamed to test if it did any difference. I just want the media dock and car dock completly gone off the phone.

    Ok. So i deleted everything that had to do with car home. It seems like its done now dancedroiddancedroid.

    How do i get rid of the media dock popup now? Is there a way to suppress the app? Like maybe toggle it via clickin on app icon only?

    Media dock? you mean the app that's activated via magnet when you set it on a desktop cradle?

    Yes, the application thats activated via the magnet. Forwahtever reason, if that application is activated, whenever i get a call, there is no way for me to answer the call. The phone rings, but the application is still present. I just want to get rid of it completely as i dont use it.

    Should be the same process, i just don't know what the APK is called, and i can't find out because then i lose internet connectivity (long story about my tethering setup, don't ask lol).
