Removing UNICOM ICS apps...

Recommended Posts

I've tried rooting the phone mounting /system read/write with various uninstallers but they all fail to delete the apps...

Looking around on the phone I noticed these apps are in...

/cust/unicom/cn/app

Is it safe just to remove everything in that directory? or will android still try and start the services and fail and cause problems when I reboot the phone (stuff like womail is run without user interaction).

Or is there a better way of doing this?

I think it's safe to format the cust partition completely.

How do you unistall the Unicome apps exactly?

I've mounted the /cust partition in CWM, but what's the next step after that...?

I was worried that formatting the partiton might cause issues!

Thanks,

Ross

Yeah, but I flashed the Vendor pack, so I've got lots of Chinese Apps.

Would rather format the /cust parttion if I knew that was safe. Just so I can rid of them in a oner!

Has anyone successfully done this?

Took a chance and formatted the /cust partition. Worked a treat! Got rid of all chinese stuff (bar two apps) and removed the Unicom splash screen (back to standard Android splash).

I just used a root uninstaller after mounting /cust as writable... the remaining apps are in /data/dataapp/ I think...

Is /cust there when you don't flash the vendor file, or does the vendor file just create symlinks or something?

I installed ICS (without vendor folder), gapps and zeam launcher.

Then removed these ones and did a factory reset.

It all works as i want.

Just to confirm that would be; Boot into CWM then [- Mounts and storage] then [ -format /cust].

One question, will I lose data and have to reinstall all of my apps?

Thanks for any info.

Rico and lupone, just use a root browser.

I think I read that ez file explorer works fine to remove these apps but I have used rom Toolbox by jrummy for a while with no problems.

I'm not too bothered about the apps, seeing as I didn't install the vendor folder, but getting rid of the Unicom splash screen would be great.

not possible at the moment unless you flash miui and use the tool provided by genokolar

Thanks David, I was hoping for an easier/lazier method :-) .
