    To disable the app, first uninstall updates. Once the updates are uninstalled you will be given the option to disable. NFL is one of them that allows you to disable. Should work fine once you uninstall the updates.

    derh,

    Are you rooted? If so you can use an app like ROM Toolbox Pro (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrummy.liberty.toolboxpro) to "Freeze" the apps. This is a pretty safe, but you still want to make sure you don't freeze certain system apps, or you could end up making your phone unbootable. You're welcome to ask about any apps you are curious about here. Hope this helps. I will post a screenshot of the "Freeze" option, just so you can see it.

    - Mandy

    Like was said before...Uninstall the updates and then disable it. It is just the same as freezing it and won't void your warranty. Not to mention a lot less work. Rooting is fun but takes a bit more work and upkeep. I am not against rooting. I have been down that road several times. I just want you to know what you are getting yourself into before you make the leap.

    You're right! Sometimes I get so into root that I forget JB added the disable feature. Haha, silly me.

    I hit "uninstalled updates" for NFL Mobile several times and it keeps coming back. i am trying it again now and after i hit "uninstall updates", i get a screen that says "all updates will be uninstalled". Then I get a screen that says "do you want to replace this app with the factory version". The only options are "cancel" or "OK". There is no "disable" options. NFL Mobile is just one of several apps i would like to disable or somehow delete-none of which i installed.

    OK. I just unfroze the same app and it was in my app list and the disable button was there. Have you tried hitting OK when asked about install factory version? Maybe once you hit OK the disable button will be active. Or let's see what the other members will suggest.

    Yes you want the factory version so hit ok. After that is done you go back to where you uninstalled the updates. That button now says disable. Let us know if you have anymore problems.
