The question says it all...

Just installed Cacko/Crow (64/0) and would like to delete some unused apps installed with this ROM like:
- calculator
- voice recorder
- calendar
- address book
- todo list

Any way to completely delete this apps or the best I can do is hide then with Tab Settings?

Thanks in advance!

you can make them invisible, but they're part of ROM image.

if the files are part of the loop-back mounted ROM image, you could copy the filesys to your linux PC, mount it, copy all the files recursively to a new directory preserving links, change things around, then make a new filesys with e.g. mkcramfs or mksquashfs (use v2 as v3 of squashfs is incompatible), then copy it to the Z somehow without breaking the currently running image!

cool.gif I can't directly answer your question, but I might have a solution for your problem.

You could install the TKC2rom, I'd also recommend the Home on SD script from the downloads here, and you could still flash the Cacko/Crow kernel if you wished.

The reason I suggest this is that the apps you mention are removed from the tkcrom with the exception of the calculator..

Cheers

Or you could install Cacko lite ... and pick the other apps you need. smile.gif

Thanks all for the reply!

As I completelly Linux newbie (although a Mac user with a *nix sys to play sad.gif ) I believe that installing a "lite" version would be the best option.

Snappy, can Cacko Lite be installed on a SL5500? huh.gif
