The process described by OP removes the .APK ok but it doesn't do anything about cached data associated with the app which remains behind. The application manager may still believe that the app is installed too.

I removed the Stock app and widget and now the application manager still believes the widget is installed but crashes if I try to select it.

I suggest only moving apps, you might need to put them back to delete their settings data or something.

This is a great 'How To' which I used to remove some useless orange apps!

However, I thought my internal memory would increase once these apps were removed, but there was no change?

Can anyone shed any light on this?

The orange apps will be installed on the /system partition and your internal memory to which regular apps you download and install is separate to the /system partition.

If im wrong some one correct me please and explain.

Hi,

i'm trying ro remove stock apps for quite a few days, and i'm getting desperate!

I have everything... titatium, terminal, root explorer, etc etc

with terminal I also receive "directory not empty", but with root explorer I can delete the apk's from /system/app ... I confirm after that they are not there, bus as soon as I reboot the phone they come back.

what can I do ?

I have HTC desire with stock android, rooted .. and also a couple of programs I instaled I don't really knwo what they do.. like rom manager, clockword recovery, etc

plz help!

You can just download Root uninstaller from market(free), and remove system apps directly on the phone..

Do you definitely have r/w access in system?

Do you have S-off?
