    if you delete any of the bloatware apps like amazon or blockbuster will an android or ota update fail?
    As previously stated, the update will fail if the pre-installed software is not present.

    I believe freezing them just means they won't start, renaming is changing the name of the current file.
    I created a separate directory and moved all of the unwanted apps there. If I have to update I can just go to that directory and do [mv * ..].

    I just downloaded Root Explorer too. When I visit the App folder and then the app City Id. I get a message that says - Package Installer what action would you like to perform? The options are Install, View, Cancel.

    I am not able to find the Mount R/W or Mount R/O Button

    All I want to do is rename the app like everyone else.

    Please advise

    should be at the top of the screen.

    I am a little iffy on what I do in explorer due to being a noob with the phone.

    I know where the button is but dont know what Mount R/W or R/O does?


    I also have platninum backup pro or whatever its called and you can backup everything then click individual applications and freeze them. it highlights the ones that are frozen so you can easily go back later and unfreeze. When you reboot the phone it doesnt load the frozen apps and it even takes the app out of the app screen.

    Rectrix55,

    Thanks for the reply. I emailed the developers of Root Explorer. They said they only way the mount button appears it that your phone must be Rooted. I don't know how to Root my phone. From reading this formum Rooting your phone is another process. R/W - Read Write - R/O - Read Only.

    I am cautious on wanting to Root my phone. My luck I will screw it up.

    However, if you have easy way to Root the phone, I am interested.

    here is the link to root your phone:

    Easier 1-2-3 Droid 2 Root for Windows / Linux / Mac - xda-developers

    I did it for windows and it was pretty easy.

    After rooting my phone I dont believe rooting is a big deal. It is pretty easy the thing to worry about is all the stuff you can now do to your phone once it is rooted.
