    oops, too late. I didnt delete accounts but did delete backup assistant. How do I go about restoring or is that not an option? I tried to restore with titanium but it pops up with restoring app and just sits there and never completes.

    Great list man! I have my X2 on Gingerbread, rooted, and bloat free... its screaming fast!! Loving P3Droid and the android community so much right now!

    I have been searching everywhere for a post I saw on replacing stock system apks with CM7 apks? Can anyone shed some light on that for me? I've already removed some of the stock system apps, now I am trying to find the right way to put the CM7 apks in.

    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the reply! I did as you said but when I launch the browser I get force close. I think my problem is the stock apks was something like "blurbrowser.apk" the CM7 is "browser.apks" . Should I figure out the exact name of the stock apks and rename the cm7 to that as well? I am using dolphin browser now anyways but I would like to start replacing other apks once I know I have it right.

    I'm Not Exactly Sure How To Get CM7 Apks To Work With The Gingerbread. I'm Using CM6's Mms.apk For The Droid 1 And It Works Perfectly Fine. May Wanna Ask A Developer How To Get It To Work Right. You Can Ask CJ Or Haiasi They Might Wanna Help You Figure It Out.

    Wanted to tune in on something I thought important. The TTS service program is required for using GPS Navigation in google maps. If you delete or freeze the TTS service, you will not be able to use the navigation portion of Google Maps.

    SO, in a nutshell, if you want to use GPS turn by turn driving directions, leave TTS service alone :)

    Out of that list, is there a group that really should be removed..

    Or are there any that maybe should be left if you want certain things.

    I'm trying to decide the best ones to freeze..

    And trying to decide between purchasing bloat freezer or titanium ..

    Yeah, All The VZ Or VCast Unless You Use Them. All The Rest Are A Matter Of Preference Do You Use Them Or Not...That's How You Choose What To Freeze Or Remove. I Removed Everything On That List.
