    Is there a command for removing the original Email app using terminal, here at work we have SSl security for Exchange and i do not want to have to type in a pin or password everytime i turn my phone on, i do have a Email apk that i downloaded on the forum here a while back that will allow me to bypass the security policy, but when i try to install it over MIUI 6.2 and previous versions after phone gets rebooted it keeps asking for the certificate to be downloaded and this forces me to use a pin or i dont get any e-mails.

    I would appriciate any help on this

    I'm not sure if there's a terminal command to remove it, even though there more likely is, but you can always remove the Email apk using Titanium Backup. I never use the Email app, so every time I flash a new rom, I just remove it via Ti.

    Well I'm not to sure about teminal but the easiest way that I have found is through Root Explorer..go into system/app the scroll down to the email.apk file and make sure the little button on top say R/O instead of Rw/w then click delete...

    Agreed, if you're without Ti, using RE is certainly another alternative to removing apps. Glad you mentioned R/O and R/W, I think a lot of people forget or don't realize that it's vital for making changes. To clarify further, if the little button at the top of RE says R/O, that means you're currently in R/W, and vice versa.

    You can open the zip go to system>apps and just delete it that way, then you don't have to do any of it on your phone
