    Cricket 411 removal

    Good afternoon my fellow cricketers!
    I rooted my mercury and removed most of the bloatware. The only thing i cant find how to remove is Cricket 411 and the stock Facebook app. (i use the app from the market)
    I'm trying to use adb to remove these files by going through the system/app but their not there. My question is what are the files named and where are they on the device.

    -Thanks

    Why don't you use Titanium Backup or some other app to just uninstall/delete? Is there some other advantage to doing it from adb?

    Here's a list of apps I uninstalled with Rom Toolbox:

    2D Lock
    All Backup
    Breeze
    Documents to Go
    Cricket DRM Wallpaper
    *Google Play Books
    Google Play Movies
    Help
    *Music+
    Muve Music
    My Account
    My Calender
    My Email
    NQ Mobile Security
    Radio Shack
    Store Front
    Wifi Hotspot
    Voice Dialer
    App Installer
    Email
    Google Play Books
    Camera (replaced with ics camera+ from app store)
    Weather Clock
    2D Launcher (That launcher is teh suck, replaced with Apex and a stock galaxy launcher I found on XDA)
    FM Radio



    *for some reason, Music+ and Google Play Books keep showing back up in my app drawer after uninstall.

    I'm also interested in uninstalling Cell Broadcasts, but I don't know what it is so I left it alone. You should still probably be cautious when uninstalling stuff, but I took all this junk off and it's only working better now.

    ****Edit****
    I was also able to uninstall a number of cricket bloatware prior to root, just by using app management!

    I noticed that in the ics app settings there is an option to disable an app. It will even let you disable the so called "system apps". What I thought was cool about it was under titanium it showed the apps as frozen. Now that most of the bloatware is frozen and rom is still stable, I'm going to remove all of it

    The stock camera didn't seem like an official ICS app. I'm pretty sure it was a Huawei camera, and ICS Camera+ was the closest thing to the stock ICS camera that I could find.

    I love the camera it comes with. I used to use ics camera + but the stock has more options plus Tap to focus.

    After App Uninstall with Rom Toolbox, NQ Mobile Security keeps showing back up for me, upon reboot. How do I get rid of it for good?

    EDIT: Nevermind. I actually didn't need to use the Rom Toolbox to uninstall it. That was just messing me up. I uninstalled it through Settings/Apps.
