    I agree with Kevdog on this one. Since upgrading to 2.1 i feel like i should disable the OTA updates and restore back to 2.0.1 when the real update comes out. Untill then I'm loving the 2.1 OS, and with the Verizon stuff gone...aka renamed but not showing in my app tray i'm one happy camper! :icon_ banana:

    find the facebook apk file and rename it. Please note that it has been recommended not to mess with the facebook app unless you've never used it because of the way it ties in with contacts.

    When you click those things you're giving those apps permission to run. As for the rest of it, just run a terminal and type in those commands. The specifics don't matter, but what that's doing is getting you access to where the files are and then renaming them so they don't show up in the launcher.

    Can I just copy and paste an entire chunk of code into ADB or do I have to do it line by line?

    Download desired bootanimation.zip to your adb tools directory on your pc.
    using adb, type this Code:
    adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
    Done!

    If your unsure about adb, search the forums ;)

    It provides more tools to the Linux kernel for advanced functions and commands.

    Basically, it allows you to do more while hacking!
