Quickoffice 2.0-GEP is listed in my manage application lists and I want to uninstall it. It's not listed in my programs list. I am not even sure what it's used for.

When I click on it from the manage apps list all the options (force stop, cancel, clear data etc.) are greyed out.

To remove any system default applications your phone must be rooted. And using this system app remover you can remove the system added applications. But you have to do this on your own risk.

I have been doing a lot of research on Android mobiles, I can tell that your system might not work properly if you remove any system added applications. But most of the applications work fine without any issue.


System App Remover is a paid application. There is one free application called Root App Delete. Have a look at this..

Quickoffice is a pre-installed app that handles previews of popular file formats created with desktop office applications (e.g. word, excel, etc.) You will not be able to uninstall it because it's installed as a system app.

You will only be able to uninstall it if you root your Nexus One, thus gaining write privileges to the /system partition. You can then use a number of root-only apps to remove Quickoffice and other pre-installed apps that you don't use.
