03/Nov r2: G2 Google Goggles Remover

15 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

As promised, this is a fully working proof of concept of removing items from /system on NAND / EMMC locked devices with only temproot / root.

This application removes the stock Google Goggles install on the T-Mobile G2, which is useful because the stock Goggles install cannot be updated. DOH! Further 'stock app removal' utilities will follow.

Notes:

  • This application is only for the T-Mobile G2
  • Temproot is required to run
  • Uninstall after use
  • The device will reboot twice during the removal process

.

The application is downloadable now from the Android Market - search for 'G2'.

Enjoy! :)

Well, it's pretty neat... the stock recovery deletes update zips when it's finished with them... so I tell it to run /system/app/GoogleGoggles.apk as an update zip... which it tries to do. Then deletes it. And reboots. :)

Job done.

Genius no? :)

Amazing Paul! I cant wait to use this! The G2 source is out :), maybe something is lurking in there to be exploited for root access?

Hi Paul, if you get a chance, could you post steps/files to revert the changes to goggles.

I'm hoping to reinstall the original goggles app and then install the OTA. Without losing all my stuff reverting to stock.

Thanks.
