Cannot uninstall Guitar Hero

Recommended Posts

This app is taking up as much memory as Google Maps & I could live without it. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to uninstall it. Unless anyone knows any better?

Use adb mate, I removed all the "rubbish" last night and it uninstalled fine.

adb remount
adb shell rm /system/app/*filename*[/codebox]

Will do it.

cheers - I tried "ls" to list the contents of the /system/app/ folder but couldn't seen anything relevant to Guitar Hero. Can you tell me the name of the file?

You're looking to remove:

glu_zte_blade_ghero5_de_en_es_fr_it_1_0_1_full-wrapped.apk

glu_zte_blade_wwtbam5_de_en_es_fr_it_1_0_1_full-wrapped.apk

for Guitar Hero and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire respectively.

so the instructions in CMD (after you've used cd to get to the folder with ADB in it) are:

adb remount

adb shell rm /system/app/glu_zte_blade_ghero5_de_en_es_fr_it_1_0_1_full-wrapped.apk

adb shell rm /system/app/glu_zte_blade_wwtbam5_de_en_es_fr_it_1_0_1_full-wrapped.apk

Thanks jsplace, your instructions worked perfectly.

No Probs :lol:

Sorry I didn't include the filenames, as you can see they are rather convoluted and I couldn't remember them at the time!

Thanks everyone, I used a free app called Super Manager which worked very well.

Hi, I have just tried to delete them with super manager but they just keep coming back. Where do you go to in the super manager app to delete them. Thanks.

Go into settings and tick enable root function first then try again.

Go into super manager, settings, enable root function, file explorer,system, it will ask about switch system r/w, choose r/w, then app and find the 2 files and tick them then click on rubbish bin.

hmm, i tried this. I tick the app i want to uninstall. Select the Rubbish Bin. It then warns me that i'm about to delete the app. I say 'ok'. The menu then returns to the top (kinda like a reshuffle), but the app is still there!! wtf!! :lol:

Before I get silly and start deleting stuff is there a way to get anything back I delete by mistake ?

As waj1234 said earlier you need to enable root function.

Did you not flash the ROM? That bins the Orange stuff.

no not yet.

I'm tempted to flash the ROM, but what do you gain from do this? (apart from getting rid of Orange's crap!!)

I've used the File Explorer functionality in Super Manager to get rid of the GuitarHero5 and WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire apps from /system/app directory.

Am I right in thinking that this won't remove any data associated with the app, such as preferences etc, as I notice that there are still directories named com.glu.android.ghero5 and com.glu.android.wwtbam5 in the /data/data directory.

Is it wise or even safe to delete these directories also, and are there any other places where app specific data remains after the app itself is deleted?
