I notice there is a pound/hash symbol before your command which means you are root. No need to add devel-su (root) if you are already root.

So instead, when not in root, you should see '$', then do the below command for stuck uninstallations;

devel-su rpm -e harbour-recorder --noscripts

(devel-su rpm -e name-of-patch-or-app-here --noscripts)

Many thanks on both! Worked like a charm! (This is one of the reasons I REALLY like SFOS/Jolla - the amount of expertise and willingness to help amont the community is unparallel to any other mobile OS!)

I have been stuck so many times before now, along comes someone far more experienced than me and offers a simple fix.....i guess i'm just paying it back :)
