    1. Should I ever decide to freeze a stock app, and then learn of OTA push, can I unfreeze it prior to OTA install?
    2. Exactly what apps are considered system apps? I assume these are Roms? How about Saftstrap, Rootkeeper, and other 3rd party apps.

    Q1, Tis was SPOT ON!

    Q2, only apps that are in the SYSTEM folder, or in other words apps that you can't NORMALLY change - except through Root access, or if using a third party installer/utility/tool that executes ADB commands, or "plants" small subroutines to do the same. For instance, a program that lets you change the Boot Animation - there are some which can do this without root, this would effectively have changed something in the system folder, normally inaccessible to you except in read-only. The Droid RAZR Utility or the RAZR_Root tools are examples of utilities that "plant" small subroutines that when rebooted are executed by the system to make changes to the system files. Bootstrap is another example, but that requires root, so the point mentioning it is somewhat moot.

    Thank you both and sorry for not responding , ASAP. I've been away and have not been able to review all my email and forum content.
    Can I install Rootkeeper on Razr with Kexec Rom via Safrestap installed.
    Do I install it on Stock side of Safestrap. Yes?
    Love Kexec but can't find USB Debugging is Settings. Develper options is gone in Rom view.
