remove icons home screen
« on: August 01, 2020, 08:43:02 PM »
Hi all.

Today I decided to uninstall some applications that I don't use at all, for example Kodi and Skype.

They were uninstalled without problem but I see that the shortcuts are not removed from the main screen.

Anyone know how to remove those shortcuts are there.

Thank you very much.

Sorry i don't speak english

After you uninstalled the apps, did you try to run the "QuickClean" app and restart the box?

HiMedia do not want you to remove these apps! If you do try they will just keep reloading  >:(.

The best way to get rid of them is to install an app called Titanium Backup and this will let you "freeze" apps. I use it to remove Skype, Facebook and Moviebar.

BUT ... you need root access before you can do this!!!

I think I ran QuickClean, but will try again.

Thank you very much.

It didn't work.

"Settings/Advance/Apps/Top right 3dot/Show system then clear data on launcher"

I am going to try

Thank you
