*****************I FIGURED IT OUT**********************


Can someone give me the commands to uninstall an unsigned app via adb?

I've installed an unsigned Home++ via these commands:

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
busybox cp /sdcard/launcher.apk /system/app/
mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
sync

but I can't uninstall it via the phone. (The option is grayed out) I successfully removed the app from /system/app but the application still shows up as installed on the market. I've gone and reinstalled the app via adb again.

Any ideas on how to uninstall the app (rather then removing it and having the market think it's installed)

Can't you just uninstall it from Astro or a similar file manager?

No. The app doesn't even appear in Astro's (or android's) app manager. Even if it did, it would take me to android's native app info page where I don't have the option to uninstall it (probably because it thinks it's a preinstalled app).

EDIT:
OK, I removed it from system again and it's uninstalled this time. Weird.
