Emulator : uninstall a package

Postby flopi » Fri Jul 31, 2009 10:51 am

Hello !

I'm working on Eclipse with android-sdk-linux_x86-1.5_r2.
I'm currently developping an app.

I tested my application several times on the emulator.
Since then, the icon of my app appears several times in the menu app installed.

I have tried to uninstall it with "adb uninstall " but Logcat says my package doesn't exist.

How can I remove completely my application from emulator ?

Try these steps:
First,make sure the emulator is running:
1. run command line client
2. adb shell
3. cd /data/app
4. ls (It will display all the .apk installed in your emulator)
5. rm ***.apk(which you want to remove)
6. exit
