I'm trying to uninstall PDAC Multilinugal keyboard and its language packs. The uninstall button on the app is grayed out, and I don't yet have root - is it possible to remove it without root access?

What phone do you have? Did it come pre-installed? – Matthew Read May 17 '11 at 13:33
Looks like the PDAC multilingual keyboard comes pre-installed on a lot of HTC devices. – GAThrawn May 17 '11 at 13:42
@Matthew - HTC Desire. – ripper234 May 20 '11 at 6:06

Most pre-installed keyboards are system apps. System apps can't be uninstalled without root access.

Damn. The thing is I wouldn't have minded it staying, the problem is it keeps overriding Swype as the default keyboard. Looks like I have to root it then. – ripper234 May 20 '11 at 6:06
