I rooted my Samsung 551 with Android 2.3.6 to delete some useless apps such as Orkut, Midnight Bowling and Layar. In trying to delete the Layar app (from /system/apps) I couldn't find it there and there is no layar.apk file or even another file name with layar's icon. Is there another path where Layar is installed? Should I config something to find its de-installation path?

Are you using adb or a file manager? That's a bit what it sounds like. Using Titanium Backup to uninstall might be easier since it will give you a nice GUI and such. – eldarerathis May 16 '12 at 13:59

Solved (at least Layar is not being showed as installed anymore). On this site I found that I could also remove the /data/app/com.layar.apk file. I did it and now I have +8MB of free space on my Galaxy.
