    The rmapk app is really nice, I've used it to remove a couple items of dead weight.

    Can you add Facebook to what it will remove?

    Wait a minute, facebook isn't even a system app. You should just be able to uninstall through market.

    Teaches me to post right after a nap. ;)

    And yet, by the fact that it lives in /system/app, not /data/app, you contradict yourself :)

    Facebook updates through the market, but the base install is system. Believe me, there's no other way that drek could get on my device.

    Couldn't find it in my system folder.
    On my device it's in /data/app.

    But anyway, if it's in your system folder my instructions are valid, you just need to find what the name of the apk is.

    By the way, I didn't see facebook in the sapphire 1.0 base package either.

    hmm

    I'm thinking it may have gotten there from a Titanium restore, since I did a full wipe before installing Sapphire.

    Thanks for the help, it's now history.

    So far, after about 24 hours running it, Sapphire rocks.
