    Patch Launcher Hide-Delete The NASCAR App
    From WebOS Internals
    Jump to: navigation, search
    <<- Return to webOS Patches


    Access Linux

    Enable the Optware Package Feed and install a backdoor.

    1. SSH in.

    2. Remount the file system as read/write:

    mount -o remount,rw /

    Contents
    [hide]

    * 1 To HIDE the NASCAR app:
    * 2 To DELETE the NASCAR app:
    * 3 To DELETE the Sprint bookmark app:
    * 4 To DELETE the NFL app:
    * 5 To DELETE ANY app:

    To HIDE the NASCAR app:

    3. Bring up the visual editor to edit the application info for the NASCAR app:

    vi /usr/palm/applications/com.handson.app.nascar/appinfo.json

    4. Press i to enter insert mode.

    5. After the "vendorurl":"http://www.handson.com" line, add another line that says this:

    "visible": "false"

    5. Press <ESC> to exit insert mode and go into command mode.

    6. Save and quit the file that you are editing:

    :wq

    7. Remount the file system as read only:

    mount -o remount,ro /

    8. You may need to restart LunaSysMgr (avoids full reboot):

    initctl stop LunaSysMgr
    initctl start LunaSysMgr

    To DELETE the NASCAR app:

    3. Back up the app first, in case you ever want it back. We'll put the files into the USB drive so you can get to them if you want.

    cp -R /usr/palm/applications/com.handson.app.nascar/ /media/internal/nascar-backup

    4. Delete the app:

    ipkg remove com.handson.app.nascar

    5. Remount the file system as read only:

    mount -o remount,ro /

    6. Restart LunaSysMgr (avoids full reboot):

    initctl stop LunaSysMgr
    initctl start LunaSysMgr

    To DELETE the Sprint bookmark app:

    I figure some people might want to delete the useless Sprint bookmark app (the useless one that says Sprint and takes you to FAQs or Videos) as well.

    /var/luna/launchpoints should have a file that is a few numbers in a row. This is the actual bookmark. (use vi to confirm it's the correct one). Delete that. Note: If you've already removed the bookmark through the browser, this file may not exist.

    Then remove the icon by doing ipkg remove com.palm.app.sprintportal similarly to above:

    3. Make a backup:

    cp -a /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.sprintportal/ /media/internal/sprintportal-backup

    4. Remove the app:

    ipkg remove com.palm.app.sprintportal

    5. Remount the filesystem:

    mount -o remount,ro /

    6. Restart LunaSysMgr (avoids full reboot):

    initctl stop LunaSysMgr
    initctl start LunaSysMgr

    To DELETE the NFL app:

    Repeat the above steps, but with the application name com.handson.app.nfl. Choose an appropriate backup name of your choice.
    To DELETE ANY app:

    By now you should get the basic idea of how to delete an app if you know the program's full name. Back it up, remove it with ipkg, remount the drive as read-only, and restart LunaSysMgr.
