    I don't see an issue with removing them entirely from the rom. You can do a search for all the apks you dont want, remove them, then rezip. I will likely try this later on when I am home and have more time to play around.

    Unless there is some type of file size check(which would fail since a bunch of the .apks just wouldnt be there), or some type of check to look at the names of files in that system/app folder I dont see why I cant do it this way and just remove them so they are never flashed along with the rom to begin with.

    WTB 2.2 root...

    I guess I can always downgrade this back to 2.1(which seems more complex than the root itself), root it, then put 2.2 back on...

    removing the apks from the rom produces an error message from the recovery console..

    Failed to verify whole-file signature
    signature verification failed

    so there is some kind of check involved. I am not sure how to circumnavigate this or even if i should try.

    Droid X Froyo 2.2 Rooted
    #65
    Removed VZ Navigator Cr*p/bloat:

    com.vznavigator.DROIDX.apk

    Droid X/Froyo/2.2/Rooted - everything works fine.....

    Except now those context menus (like in GMail) where it used to come up annoyingly now show something moronic like a browser icon.

    Does anyone know how to bring back my Google Navigator icon in these context menus (like from Google places)??? 2.2 replaced them with VZ Crapigator....

    2. What are these apks (I don't want to touch them w/out knowing what they are):
    Conversations.apk
    FriendFeed.apk
    SocialShare.apk
    Stk.apk
    Thanks!

    Edit: Just learned that FriendFeed.apk is this stupid Social Networking Motorola widget. Still need to know what other 3 apks are...

    I have "frozen" amazon mp3 with titanium backup, but it still shows up in my app drawer. Anyone know how to fix this?
