    So I have been messing around with my android phone and I want to remove some of the system apps that are installed that I don't use or want. I have a ZTE Score (X500). I don't know if it's rooted or not.. I don't think so because it's pretty much stock. I have the Android Developer tools installed on my computer and have done a few things to it already like changes the location of where downloaded apps are installed (sd card instead of internal memory).. But that's about it. I have been researching stuff online and using the cmd.exe to do everything. Here are a few things that I would like to remove.. Documents to go (never use it and don't need it), Bubble breaker 2 (same), Latitude (never use it and don't need it), Muve Music app (not subscribed therefore don't need it), Poynt (same reason), and Uno (never play it, don't need it).
    So When I go into the cmd and put in everything that I need to to remove the stuff that I listed I get "adb: permission denied".
    Does anyone know how to get past this and get this crap off my phone??? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!!

    Indeed first root your device, then use rootexplorer to remove the apk from system\app.
    You can use any filemanager that can access system partition and supports root, but root explorer is by far the most used.
