Hello everybody !

I have a problem with some annoying widgets which I want to delete and I don't know how. I have an Ainol Aurora II with 0717 ROM. I mention that is not about the widgets from home screen but the widgets from the black screen, when I press the Widget tab next to Aplications tab. I have to say that it appears alot of widgets I don't need and next to each one it appears something like this: 3x3 or 3x1 or 4x1 and so on. I really want to get rid of them but I only can delete the ones from the home screen by long press on it then drag on top of the screen. On the widget screen I have no edit or delete button, the only thing I can do with them is to long press on it then to drag them on one of the home screens. By the way, I have 4 empty home screens, how do I delete them?
About the widgets, to remove that application which created it I think it's not a solution as I need them. There are even 4-5 different widgets for the same application, it drives me crazy.
If I remember well, with 0626 ROM I think it was a way to delete that widget, or am I wrong? There is a place where this widgets icons are located to delete them with a file manager?
Thank you.

Hi Rebox, why are they driving you crazy? - they're just shortcuts sitting in an area that you don't have to go to. It's not really a problem, more of an affliction by the sound of it. Same thing with the four empty home screens. You can try a custom launcher that will reduce the number of home screens but maybe you're missing the opportunity to organise your applications by grouping them on different home screens. I like to have an audio/video screen, an information/news screen and a utilities/applications screeen.

Hi. you are right in a way, but I want to have the possibility to add/remove the home screens and the widgets accordingly to my needs. I don't like to have things I don't need.
Still waiting for a solution. If I remember well, I was able to delete the homescreens and the widgets on 0626 ROM version, but not 100% sure. Maybe is something wrong with this version of ROM and some options are missing.
