I've installed Omega Droid, which comes with Recycle Bin as a system app - I cannot uninstall it. Normally it doesn't bother me, but when I browse my files in the My Files system app and click a file that has no application registered it gets "handled" by the Recycle Bin app, which kindly deletes it for me without any confirmation! Of course, I can go into the app and restore the file, but this is really annoying. How do stop Recycle Bin from handling any type of file? I don't want to ever use it at all. I would uninstall it if I could.


There is a way to remove system apps. Install this app and it will allow you to remove any app you wish, system or not.

    Awesome! I had no idea that's possible - thanks! Removed the Recycle Bin app and that solved the problem. – EM0 Nov 24 '14 at 18:54
