    Info overload! Just want to know 1 thing about DX root, please.

    Hey everyone,
    I'm still rocking my OG but now I have a shiney new DX and am researching root (of course). I'm fairly advanced with my OG but I simply want to know this:
    If I root the DX with z4root and gain su, is that all I need to do to simply remove stock apps? I'm not too interested in OCing or even loading any custom ROMs at this time. I just want su access to disable stock apps.
    I have been reading for hours on bootstrap, ADB commands, etc..... just want to remove apps. Thanks in advance!!

    In short, yes. However, you may want to consider freezing the apps with titanium so you can easily get them back for updates.

    Thank you for the response musicman. That's what I have been reading, that you shouldn't actually delete the apps because that screws up ota's. So I freeze them with TiBu and then when an ota comes out, just unfreeze them?

    Wow...it almost seems TOO simple! LOL. I really appreciate you helping me out. I think I'm going to run z4 after a little bit more reading and if I get in any trouble, this site has been and always will be my life line. Thank you again.

    Hey musicman, if I do this does z4 have unroot or do I have to go thru a major process to unroot? I don't think I would because im not putting in any special recovery right? It's still stock recovery?

    Yeah, z4 has an unroot. Not sure if z4 root is available in the market right now. Someone has the apk
    though.

    You can also root and unroot manually...check for roolers guide thread. Very comprehensive.

    When you root your DX you want to download Bootstrap Recovery to boot phone into recovery mode. Rom Manager isn't as successful like on the OG Droid.

    If you DX is on the latest Rom with Madden 11 which is version .340 of Froyo, I would try to install a rom like Darkslide 4.0, by BBCrackman or Apex 1.3 by Fabolous or Rubix 1.90. All of these are great roms for the DX. I am rocking Darkslide 4.0 because I really like the theme and the transitions/

    One thing to be careful of is that freezing/removing some of the blur apps can cause the system to be instable if you're thinking of just running a rooted stock. Just be sure to make a nandroid backup to go back to before you do any messing around with the stock apps. So, you'll probably want to purchase the Droid bootstrapper app and install Rom manager so that you have a good way of doing backups/restores. Seriously will save you from headaches and possible sbf restores.
