Your Ledger Nano S isn’t a mobile phone on which you can uninstall apps randomly within a tapping-dragging method. Instead, it’s a wallet of your hard-toiled crypto currencies that you must handle in an appropriate way.
So, how you can uninstall apps on your ledger nano s conforming to the official method will be the talk of our today’s write up. Throughout it we will be showing you the correct method of uninstalling apps and things related to it. Here we go!
Time may come when you will see message “insufficient device storage” on the screen of your Nano S. This is the time you need to uninstall some apps from the device.
If you don’t uninstall anything, the wallet won’t allow you to install new apps on it next time and update firmware.
Remember that you can safely uninstall the apps without losing access to your crypto assets as the assets are stored on the blockchain, not in the apps. Again, frequent installing and uninstalling doesn’t leave your private keys vulnerable.
When you are left with no other option than uninstalling some apps from your Ledger S, don’t start uninstalling any app randomly. Instead, be sure that the un-installment should always get started with the dependent apps.
Once all the dependent apps of a certain stand-alone app are removed, only then you can uninstall the mother app.
Don’t you know the difference between dependent apps and stand-alone apps? Here goes the detail for you:
Apps like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, USDT, Litecoin, Tezos, Polkadot, EOS and Binance are stand-alone. These apps are quite large in size and each of them has a number of subordinate apps.
The subordinate apps under each stand-alone app are known as dependent apps, which are considerably tiny in size.
BitcoinTestnet, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Cash and Digibyte are four of the dependent apps of Bitcoin.
Akroma, Callisto, Ether1 and Atheios are a number of dependent apps of Ethereum.

Step 7: Your Ledger Nano X will show you the message of “Processing…..”. Wait a few seconds as long as the BTC doesn’t become invisible on the dashboard of the live app.
