    hi i did not understand the direction then. i thought you mounted the SD card to the computer if you wanted to backup the apps you are deleting?
    i have no care or need to keep the apps i dont want. i am trying to get rid of the moxer mail and a few others i never use or want to use.

    do i still need to mount if i have no intention of saving the applications ?

    you need to mount in order to even go into the directory of cd /system/app

    ok ill make it easy for u.. as soon as you connect to connect bot type this:::::::::

    su

    mount -t rfs -o remount,rw /dev/stl5 /system

    cd /system/app

    To delete an app, type:
    rm [appname].[extension]

    After you're done type (IMPORTANT):
    mount -t rfs -o remount,ro /dev/stl5 /system



    thats all to it..

    after you type cd /system/app if you type "ls" it shows everyone .apk(program) in that directory ..

    let me know if its still confusing.

    Default Easy Way to delete stock apps

    Thanks to another poster on here go to the marketplace and download "titanium backup" Use that. Nothing to it. I got rid of nascar and nfl and the bejeweled demo that Sprint sticks us with. I didn't have to mount the phone or go into the system.

    you can do that but i rather trust command prompts then a program to do it for me especially since its saves in a different format..
