Droid Explorer crashes in the middle of uninstall

Oct 8, 2010 at 9:59 PM

I'm trying to use Droid Explorer to remove some of the bloatware from my Intercept, but while everything connects just fine, when I attempt to use the uninstall option, DE crashes.

I tried just deleting apps instead of uninstalling them, but it doesn't seem to have any effect at all. I can right-click-delete ten times, and AmazonMP3.apk just sits there like "whut? you thought I was goin' anywhere?"

I'm pretty certain I have root, as when I go into Terminal Emulator and type su, I get # back.

regardless if you have root or not, I do not believe you can "uninstall" system applications. /system is read-only and maybe that is the reason DE is crashing. I will add this as an issue, since it should not crash...
