Can I Delete the Weather widget

Thank you very much :slightly_smiling_face::grinning::slightly_smiling_face:

Open a cmd window on Windows, or terminal on Linux.

Nothing bad happened… except the black hole in the garden :wink:


Do I need to sign in as root first?

No you don’t have to do that, do as you can see in the picture.

Mhh. Not working for me.

Any idea why? Thanks!

I suspect there’s a minus sign missing from the command: - -user

$ pm uninstall -k --user 0

Try it again.

Thank you, @andrelam

My attempt was successful.

The number of apps was reduced by one.

But icon “Weather” is still displayed inside “Apps”
Additional text:

0 B
Not installed for users

Is that right?

A single “minus” ("-") sign in front of k, but double in front of user ?

Yes, see also screenshot in answer #10 by @andrelam

Welcome, yes i noticed that too, don’t know if that’s normal. This is the only way i know of at the moment. In the future they will be uninstallable, be patient :grinning:

Thank you for “Welcome”. Well, I’m in good spirits about /e/ in 2020. A default option to uninstall /e/ apps is the only way to go instead of just disabling or deleting them. Right now /e/ is just an interesting game for me. And I’m practicing patience ;o)

I’ve learned a little something new. The adb command => pm list packages|grep -i weather

shows me these 4 packages:

package: org.lineageos.openweathermapprovider
package: org.cyanogenmod.weatherservice

Well, it was uninstalled a few days ago =>

Now I uninstalled the other 3 apps as well and reboot. Yeah /e/ boots as usual.

And see there: The above mentioned icon “Weather” and the additional text (Weather 0 B Not installed for users) is no longer available.

I can’t (yet) estimate the effects of uninstalling on the system. Let’s see what it looks like after the next /e/ update.

Hi @archie did you install the new system update? Any problem due to having previously wiped out the stupid weather app? Thx.

Hello @dotcoma. No, so far I can’t see any problems. /e/ OS Update - OTA - accepts the non-existence of the weather app and takes this into account, which means the W-app will not be installed again.

How to open a cmd windows on the smartphone, please?

You can’t. CMD command prompt is a Windows® specific thing. With an Android Terminal Emulator App, you can emulate e.g. a VT-100 terminal to access the command line on the smartphone.

is it dangerous? lol
yesterday, I received my /e/ refurbished smartphone and I would like to delete some apps (weather, message, mail…)

Do you advise a terminal app, please?
I’m trying but I get “aborted”

@Manuekris, every intervention in the running system has its risks. But so far I have not been able to detect any “dangerous” system reactions in my experiments.

Before you make any changes, I recommend that you make a system backup to an external microSD card. That way you can your /e/ OS “stable build” save and in case of an emergency like going back to the beginning /e/ OS ROM.

With the already installed TWRP Recovery we can make a device-dependent backup (Nandroid-Backup) and pull this data over to the PC or store it on an external mircroSD card. See also → A complete system backup without root with TWRP Custom Recovery including EFS / IMEI on external microSD card

Terminal and Command Prompt (CMD) only work on my desktop computer. For lack of experience I cannot recommend a terminal app. Have a look at the → F-Droig Store.
