    Good day to all. I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy GT-I9003 (Build FROYO.JPKD1) while overseas. I followed the above instructions to uninstall the Qoran application , and discovered that the application did not uninstall – it’s still there. Any advice and input to uninstall this application would be welcome. Thank you,
