Submission + - Time Inflation and Deflation Theory (TIDT) (

mmontuori writes: "Few years ago I decided to apply Time Dilation theory and see the results myself, as you could probably expect, the results are quite different than expected.

mmontuori writes: This week post is “Removing Android System Stock Applications“. Ever wondered why an Android system or stock application cannot be removed with the GUI? How you would remove the annoying applications that comes installed with your phone?

In this post, will guide you to remove an application only with system commands and without any GUI or market apps; this technique will make you understand the Android Operating System a little more. In this example, I decided to remove the stock Quick Office application, only because I have a Quick Office Pro license. You should be able to use the same method for any system applications. This post assumes that you are familiar with .apk files, you have the Android Developer Kit installed and configured, a rooted phone, and busybox installed; if you don’t, please get familiar with the subjects and install the pre-requisites before continuing. There is enough information on the Internet on how to do it.
