    I deleted the blockbuster app before I found out that delete is bad, freeze is good. Is it true i might have screwed myself out of Ginger Bread? Is there any way to restore the app? If I cant get gingerbread should I TAKE MY DROID X2 AND RAM IT IN TO MOTOROLA'S STOMACH!?

    Well I forgot to look in the obvious place for the app the market lol, I have the blockbuster app back on but I can uninstall it if i want the normal way. I hope when the download comes out it wont know the difference. Having pre installed garbage that cant be removed is the biggest bull**** idea ever. Its fine to have it on the phone so people can check it out, but why in the ****ing hell cant we delete it! Im gunna throw a brick through blockbusters window one day

    I ran into the same problem uninstalling NFS Shift before I realized the market version doesn't work on our phone (even got it copied from my DX1 to try it and definite no-go). The apps that the phone actually allows you to uninstall are permanently gone. Even a factory reset doesn't bring them back. Good to back up anything you plan on uninstalling because I had a dog of a time getting someone to repost the DX2 NFS Shift apk.

    The market version won't help you get the OTA update, it needs to be the one it came with because it's installed as a system app.

    Don't worry though, just download a X2 system dump, (there are several people who've uploaded it) find the file in system/app and copy it over to your phone with root explorer, set the permissions and reboot.

    Fixed.

    No worries, just don't forget to set the permissions correctly or it won't work. They *should* be rw-,r--,r--

    Uninstalling the uninstallables won't likely cause problems with the OTA because the uninstallable apps reside in /data/app/. The OTA updates modify /system/. The apps are not recoverable unless you get them from another phone, though. Even a hard reset doesn't bring them back.

    Woops, I'm on too many threads. Didn't even realize this was the BB specific one. Yeah, that one is most definitely needed and needs to be the correct version, otherwise the OTA update will fail.

    The blockbuster app installed fine, only thing is it allows me to uninstall it through the normal manage apps/uninstall method.

    Installed? You don't install it you have manually move it to /system/app and set the permissions.

    Use root explorer.

    Yep, otherwise it resides in /data/app/ instead.

    How well does the Blockbuster app work? Isn't Blockbuster out of business?
