    Question Removing junk apps

    On Ginger, I would use Titanium Backup Root to remove junk I don't want such as the My Account and all the other stuff, but on ICS (thanks dudes!), it tells me that the APK is unavailable. How could I go about removing these on ICS?

    App List:
    Docs to Go
    Cricket 411
    Play Books
    Play Music
    Email
    All Backup

  2. Remove this advertisement.

    The ics update appears to put these apps on the locked partition 'cust'. No way to remove them, same issue the devs ran into while trying to change the boot animation. It can't be deleted or changed directly. Only worked around

    Try an app called "root browser lite" I read on another forum that it could manipulate files in this folder where others couldn't

    Apps stored in four places on this rom.

    /system/app
    /data/app
    /data/dataapp <All Backup
    /.cust_backup/image/cust.img <Books, File Manager, and Music+

    I can make a stripped down version of the cust.img file if you would like.
