uninstalling my application from their Android platform (not emulator

If that's not possible exactly, perhaps it may be possible to:
- remove/hide the application from the installed applications list
- abort uninstallation by throwing an error from some standard class

- automatically force reinstall of uninstalled application?
- invoke some class in the application before being uninstalled so
