How To Disable Apps With Temp Root On Your EVO 3D

How To Disable Apps With Temp Root On Your EVO 3D

Now that temporary root has been obtained on the EVO 3D, XDA Senior Member flipzmode has posted a How To on quickly and easily disabling stock applications using the package manager binary.

This method does not fully uninstall the apps (not possible as yet), but will disable them so that they can’t be run.

In Rosie, the application will disappear from the app drawer, in other launchers the application may change into the default Android icon, and you may need to hide it in your launcher.

Please bear in mind that if you disable something that the phone needs, then it may stop booting or cause force closing!

For further information, head on over to the tutorial thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
