    That will not work anymore. There is no way around this without Google doing something.

    You can update the apps. They will remain frozen.

    Dont know if this was said before or not, but here's a warning:
    *DO NOT USE ANTTEK AP MANAGER*
    I used it because it was free and had more good reviews than bad, but after freezing apps I lost half my contacts. Now I do not have BackUp Assistant+ apps in my phone. The AntTek app apparently got rid of them.
    If anyone has had this problem or knows the specific way for me to get this app set back please let me know.

    I made another post but it appears this might be a better place to ask. It is perfectly ok to remove the apps that have an uninstall option on a stock phone correct?

    Yes, if there is an option to uninstall, you're good to go.

    So, how do we collectively feel about this Safe-To-Freeze List for ICS? I know this is a Droid 4 posting, and that ICS isn't officially out for the D4, but many of us Razr users refer to this list and now the question is relevant.

    Thanks,
    Warr

    Will work on this right now. Thanks in advance for the share!

    EDIT: I also froze a few other stock apps, such as:

    Blockbuster
    GoToMeeting
    Let's Golf

    P.S. I also froze the Mobile Hotspot app, hoping it won't affect the tethering hack I just managed to make.

    Thanks again!

    Hey, although the My Music app is now defrosted, it's not working properly! Can anyone tell me what app must I defrost in order to get it back to work? (I only froze the ones on the suggested list as well as the few ones I mentioned.)

    Can one freeze the standalone Facebook app?

    Its now part of the bloatware with the ICS update.

    I believe you can, I believe it'll cause an issue with syncing FB contacts though. Don't quote me on that though. Lol :)
