I did some reading on this. Android uses a package manager (PM) which keeps a list of apps that are availble to run on the system. What Titanium Backup (TB) does is remove the frozen app from the list. When this is done the PM no longer sees the frozen app so it cannot be run. So as far as the system goes the frozen app is no longer installed but in reality it's still there.
It's like being the coach of a basketball team and you have roster (list)of players to chose from to put on the court. What TB does is it removes a player from the roster, so even though the player is sitting on the bench the coach doesn't know he is there because he is not on the roster so he cannot be put into the game.

can anyone confirm that web top works now with a HDMI plug like the video for moto ics shows. if so I will pull the plug. I keep debating on whether to upgrade or not. really just waiting on an ics safe strap and confirmed root exploit.

It wasn't working for me.
EDIT: nevermind, the option to use HDMI under the display setting was not checked. Once you check it I can mirror the screen on an HDTV.

What i am referring to is the second video down webtop 3.0 basics. Webtop without needing a dock or lapdock is a huge thing.

You might be surprised to hear that I only installed this yesterday. I been traveling all week and didn't have the time nor wish to risk something acting funny while I had to have the phone. So far it's pretty sweet. Anyways I have a touchpad that I have been running my own CM9 Kang on for several months. One thing I see mentioned here is the "charge only" mode being gone. I am pretty sure that is a Android 4.0 thing as there isn't a charge only mode in CM9. Best to select the "MTP" mode for easy access and it will still charge.
Instead of starting a whole new thread, I figured I would just comment on here about the leak. First off, let me tell you, that having to use RSDLite to revert to stock was a nailbiter, only because the laptop I have I need new thermal paste as it heats up quickly and shuts itself down even with a cooling pad under it. With that being said, I followed the instructions to a T, and soon enough I was on the ICS build. So far, I have to say that I am loving it. Face unlock feature is definitely awesome, not having any pictures of myself so I cannot test the op statement on that. The phone is extremely fast and smooth, with everything working flawlessly, it is pretty amazing. The only things that I see that I have to get used to, is all from being on custom roms. Like my mini info widget doesn't show the exact battery percentage, its the usual 10% increments.
Being rooted I had no issues freezing the bloatware apps. Some of t-hem, like the demos for madden 12 and the golf game, were actually uninstallable. Caller id, the movie streaming app, etc. Were the ones I really went through and froze.
There is a new app (new to me, anyway) called "Color", which is actually very interesting. From what I could tell by the quick look around, it allows you to basically do what we can do on stickam. Stream live video, but directly on facebook, as opposed to those trying to get their facebook friends to click another link. Apparently it gives your friends a notification that allows them to watch from their phones or from facebook itself. Interesting to see how that will turn out.
For me, there has been no data issues what so ever, but I can only imagine that is direct result of this being a leaked build from Motorola. I have not explored the wifi yet, but 4G has been rock solid (I live in a well covered 4G area).
The on screen keyboard felt a little less than par, as it didn't come with the stock swype like the phone did out of the box, so I downloaded and installed the beta, and was actually surprised to see the on screen swype I downloaded (which has been the same since the beginning) now included directional arrows at the top of it. I thought that was kind of cool.
So, take my opinion with a grain of salt, as I haven't really dug down deep into the leak to be nit picky, since I did just install this last night. But, I am not regretting it at all!
