How to uninstall pre-installed apps (no cmd needed)

Hi guys,sorry if its been posted before or if i'm on wrong thread,but i noticed lots of people are finding it difficult to remove pre-installed apps on android...

i went on the following:

http://androidcommander.com/ downloaded it..

Phone Requirements:

- ROOT (only for Applications Manager and flashing options)

- BusyBox (required only for rooted phones; included to most ROMs)

- Settings->Applications->Development->USB debuging must be enabled

- USB cable

it says busybox but u can use "Superuser" to root your phone...

PC Requirements:

- Windows

- Instaled Android SDK *

- Instaled ADB USB Driver from SDK

- SDK/Tools set in System Path (program can set it for You )

* Download the Android SDK: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

* Installing the Android SDK: http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html

Install SDK from the above link,you must also have JAVA installed on your PC...

download and install all the required programs

connect your android phone to pc through USB

then click on the "android commander" program(make sure you set system path,look for the item path where you installed ADB..the pc needs to find this)

this should detect your phone,then go on from there to search and remove your unwanted apps

any help with this,ask me here or PM me..

You wouldn't lose keyboard through removing fmradio...

You can also just use Titanium Backup app to remove system apps from your rom. Much simpler.

May sound stupid, but have you gone to settings, language and keyboard, and then selected an input method?.

If not, you could go to Swype, make an account, download the beta keyboard for temporary use, then use that to search a keyboard you like from the market.

Easiest way is to just use terminal and rm the apk from /system/apps/

LoL.

If you download some Rom you can open it with WinZIP.

system\app\ here the all of app what is in the rom. You can delete here what you dont need. (If you break your phone is not my buisnes, you need think what you wanna delete) I delete here always the FMradio, Filer replace root explorer, delete car home, i replace the launcer to the launcherPro. etc.

So here you can delete what you dont need. And you can put here some IMPORTANT apps what you wanna install in the first boot. Dont put here AngryBirds or other like this app.

After just flash your phone. And tadam here your "custom" ROM.

Thats the first step if i try a new ROM.
