    I'm on Jelly Bean, and I'm rooted.

    I still can't uninstall the Facebook app.

    I don't use it, and I'm tired of its constant requests to update.

    Any idea how to get it gone?

    Thanks.

    You shouldn't uninstall it. You have two options since you are rooted:

    1) Go to Manage Apps, go the Facebook app, uninstall updates, then disable. This will remove it from the app drawer and stop it from receiving updates.

    2) Use a program like Titanium Back up to freeze the app. Do not recommend uninstalling the app or deleting the app.

    I just disabled it and it never asked for anything again. Disable is a beautiful thing!

    I agree...disabling it is the best option.

    Is it safe to go through the apps and disable all the ones that I don't use or are there some that should be left alone even though I do not use them? Thanks!

    I disabled a lot too! So much stuff on here that will never be used. Now I don't have to deal with the updates popping up either. Glad it helped you out.
