    I'm just wondering if anyone knows of anyway to delete some of the default apps that Sprint has put on the Pre? Most of them I just don't use, and do not want! I know when I had my Palm Centro (before I switched to the Pre) I was able to delete any and all default applications that Sprint and Palm had put on the phone....But I cannot seem to do that now with my Pre. Any ideas? =D

    which apps do you want to delete?

    Can't be deleted, but there are patches to hide some of them.

    Actually, they can be deleted but you have to gain linux access to your phone either by a) ssh/novaterm/some other login access or b) using the command line in WebOS Quick Install. You also need to know the right command to use which depends on each application you want to delete. It's not as simple as a tap-delete. Also, any apps you delete will return with every update. But it can be done.

    If you are familiar with Linux/unix commands, try this:
    Patch Launcher Hide-Delete The NASCAR App - WebOS Internals

    If you have no idea what that is doing, it would be safer to just install Preware and the "hide NASCAR app" patch

    I suppose I knew that, was referring to the "ordinary" method of deleting an app (using the orange button).

    No, it's not that simple. Just get the hide patches from prewre, it's probably the easiest way to "get rid" of them.

    The only way I know how is reflashing with WebOS Doctor, unless you can find an installable package out there from Quick Install.

    It doesn't hurt anything to leave those default apps alone.

    Always back up your files if you delete it just in case.

    Otherwise run WebOSRepairUtility to get back the files that are missing.
    Which can be found in Jason's Canuck Software section.
    If the only one who knows the truth about a terrible secret is unaware they hold the answer to a mystery that could mean life or death.
    The search for the key leads to the most dangerous place in the world, the human mind.
