On Saturday, August 29th, 2009 my Xbox 360 Pro Launch Console received the dreaded E74 error message. Which is basically right next to the RROD error. My Xbox 360 Launch Console is obviously out of warranty and I was not going to pay $99 to get rid of the launch console to only get a refurbished one sent back to me that could possibly get this again. Plus, the launch console is too valuable to me for various reasons.

Anyways, here is what I have noticed with the Xbox 360 Elite Fall 2009 build. The console is obviously quieter, without a doubt. I forget it is on, which is even better when you are using it to play movies. I never really had a problem with it while playing video games. I also noticed that game discs load much faster than before with the launch console. Then there is the Jasper CPU which you will not really notice but it is better than the Falcon CPU they used in the launch and early on system consoles. These 360’s should not be prone as much to the RROD’s or E74 error messages either.

If you are looking to get an Xbox 360, definitely by the Fall 2009 consoles or any other ones with later build dates. If you some how have waited this long to get an Xbox 360 because of hearing people with RROD/E74 problems, then you should not of waited but no need to wait any longer now either.

Earlier today I moved over from JesusFreke’s Mod to CyanogenMod. Now there is nothing wrong with JesusFreke’s but I am loving Cyanogen’s a lot more. Lot of changes and additions have been done to this mod over JesusFreke’s. It is much easier to install yet alone gain root too.
But anyways, on with my post. I wanted to remove Work Email as he nicely brought this package from the MyTouch 3G into the package so you can have it on your G1. Now others like myself will probably never even use Microsoft Exchange and it weighs in at around 2MB so removing it is best if not used. Unless you have moved to sd storage as I have since August 24th but still decided to remove this and others (PDFViewer.apk and QuickOffice).
While trying to remove on my own and maybe yourself to? you might run into a “read-only system” error. To be able to get rid of this type the following in Terminal Emulator.

mount -o remount,rw /system
rm /system/app/Mail.apk

Then you are done, nothing else is necessary. If you would like to remove other apps that you are unable to uninstall just replace Mail.apk with the package name. Use the “ls” command without quotes while in “cd /system/app” (without quotes again) to see the list of apps.
Disclaimer: I take NO responsibility if you mess up your phone while in Terminal and running these commands or others. Be careful and remove apps the proper way when you can.
