How to delete (disable) the pre-installed Chinese apps on Ainol NOVO 10 Hero
The Ainol NOVO 10 Hero we sell is the English Edition for oversea market, you can tell from the package box and reference manual – they are all in English. However, not like Flame, where Ainol has a special English version of firmware , Ainol uses the same firmware on both English and Chinese version of Hero – they only set the language as English. Because of this you will see some English apps in Hero. If you don’t want them, you can disable them to make them disappear. Since they are part of the firmware , you cannot remove them, but you won’t see them after you disable them. In addition, you will find your Hero run much faster after disable those pre-installed Chinese apps.
To do this, go to “Settings”->”Apps”, check all apps, click those Chinese apps one by one, then click “Disable”. This works perfect as long as you don’t do a Factory Reset. If you do a factory reset, it will go back to the original firmware setting. The language will be Chinese. You need to set the language back to English. The following video shows how to set the language from Chinese back to English.
