I know mate, I'm losing money using this product as everything takes so long (should have stuck with 3.7!), so much doesnt work properly, and you have to re-compile everytime - just to change JS!
One thing you could try is changing the database table directly. Thats what I've been doing on my module as a workaround, but thankfully my site is still just local. I need to launch it in about 3 weeks, at which time of course I need the "Products" dropdown to dissapear from the Content Menu, but once I am satisfied my module is working as I want it to, Im going to change the namespace and module name (it is still called products), register my new module, and delete the products instance. Use Administration > Backend pages to delete the Products option from the Content Menu (if this doesnt work for you, clear all of your internet cache and then access Backend pages, there is a known bug here).
Let me know if thats any good.
