Nothing earth shattering here folks, just a simple how-to in case anyone else is wondering how they can "get rid" of a few of the stock applications on their Coby Kyros MID8024. First, install SSHDroid from the market (or XDA), and run it. You don't need to be rooted. SSHDroid will reveal your IP address when you run it, make a note of it, you'll need it in a second. Next, if you don't have it, download PuTTY (or another SSH client) to your desktop computer. Connect to your Kyros on the address you noted previously, port 2222 (all this info should be on your tablet screen right now with SSHDroid running.) Now, for the apps you can "get rid" of without rooting. In /system/app, the following seem to have permissions that will let you rename (or delete) them: Appslib_66.apk ut_tscal.apk YouTube.apk com.ut.emusic.apk aldiko-oem-2.00.081.apk ES_TaskManager.apk Launcher2.apk ApkInstall.apk ES_FileExplorer-184.108.40.206.apk DeskClock.apk (Check your permissions if you want, your mileage may vary. I am working on a MID8024, 220.127.116.11 #1563) If you're familiar with a Linux command line (and you probably ought to be if you're reading this), do the following to "get rid" of any of the apps above (ES TaskManager as an example): mv /system/app/ES_TaskManager.apk /system/app/ES_TaskManager.apk.bak Reboot when you're all done. I personally did this so I could get rid of Aldiko Reader and ES_TaskManager, two applications that I do not want and which take up RAM that I could certainly use for other things. For me, renaming is fine, and is reversible if you change your mind later, but you could probably nuke them as well. This is low-risk activity in my book, but as with anything you find on a public form, use at your own risk.
