Meh, isn't there some sort of command prompt on these things? They're basically computers, it seems that there should be a way even if one had to learn android platform code, to change basic functions and data that way.
Yes they are mini computer. Think at this point, have you ever used a computer with administrative rights you can access certain rights but not all including removing apps. As well I don't know how long you been using android but almost all android phones have been well we can really say that word here but you can go to xda forums and have more info, but if you do change that info you'll be voiding the phones warranty and if not careful even bricking your phone but its been a while since a read about some one actually bricking a phone.
Correct and to modify a device isnt as simple as simply opening a command prompter and typing a command and beside it will do just as CJREYES666 reported that it can void warrenty as well at breach TOS ro modify the device in the way required to remove any apps that is locked ro avoid you from removing it..
