Rooted HTC Hero
I have a HTC Hero, rooted. I opened Advanced Task Manager to find that Stocks and Peep are running in the background, and reopen every time I try to quit them.
Seeing as I really have no need whatsoever of those applications, I found a way to delete them.
Note: Do make a Nandroid Backup before removing these apps (just in case)

Just wondering if it’s possible for you to make a guide on how to root your HTC Hero? All the guides I have read are either confusing or I can’t follow them!
Love the site, really nice design!
That’s hopefully going to be the next thing added here! Just subscribe to the RSS feed or check back within a couple of days!

Does this work on non rooted phones. I have an inspire 4G and want to remove the stocks and peep apps. Just not very tech savvy and don’t want to screw things up.
I’ve wanted to root my phone for a while but I never can find instructions that are clear and to the point. It looks like these can be followed even by a technically challenged person like myself.
I think I might have had the wrong phone for this!
Thanks for sharing, but in reply to jrock81, if you aren’t very tech savvy I would keep away from rooting your phone and deleting files.
I want to delete my delete Stocks and Peep from your HTC Hero but don`t know how it works. Can you help me???
