Manual Removal of MobilePack v0.4 and Update to v0.9
Based on 6 CMS R2
A lot of people are checking out the EPiServer MobilePack add-on for their initial efforts getting started in the mobile space. The latest version, Beta v0.9 adds some great enhancements and features. If you haven’t checked it out yet take a look. But what if you had already installed the Alpha v0.4 on a site? How do you remove it and update to the latest?
Below you will find manual steps to remove v0.4 and update to v0.9. I believe this should cover 98% of it. I’m leaving some room for error as I haven’t tracked exactly what goes into the database so I’ll call this the “dirty” clean up. For your demo, development, and similar environments this should work acceptably.

Delete the Redirection rules.
