I have tried a lot of things which mentioned in different forums such as:

  • delete using root ES File Explorer.
  • delete apk files from /system/app.
  • clear Dalvik cache after uninstall (manually removing /data/dalvik-cache and /cache/dalvik-cache and using CWM recovery.
  • all mentioned earlier together several times.
  • Even reinstall ROM wiping data/factory reset and clearing Dalvik cache using recovery.

But no result. And I get something like this on startup if I clear Dalvik cache: enter image description here So there is a location from where OS gets these apps, isn't it? How can I get rid of these redundant apps?


Here a link where I downloaded ROM: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2249760

  • Those sounds like malwares. They usually get rid of by flashing the whole data and system partitions. Try find a RUU file and flash your phone. – esQmo_ Aug 20 '17 at 13:25

I fixed it by enabling S-OFF on my device. Here more details https://androidforums.com/threads/uninstalled-system-applications-appear-after-reboot-on-htc-desire-x.1178166/#post-7596175
