How to really uninstall Java 7 JRE on Mac OS X

Thanks to this stupidity from Oracle, I needed to uninstall Java 7 and go back to the Java v6 runtime.

(Hey, Oracle, this bug was reported 9 months ago.)

Well, the official way of ¬†uninstall Java 7 and roll back to v6 from Oracle and Apple didn’t work for me. $ java -version still reported v1.7.

Thanks to Topher Kessler, this way worked for me;

delete the file 1.7.0.jdk located in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines

Delete the v1.7.0.jdk file to uninstall Java 7
Delete the v1.7.0.jdk file
