    Hello im new to the whole routing thing and I read that I could delete anyapp I wanted off my droid x but I was woundering if I delete any of these programs will it cause problems? Like what about wireless 3g hotspot sense I rooted my phone so I can use barnacle. So if I delete 3g hot spot will it currupt barnacle?

    It shouldn't affect barnacle, but be forewarned if you fully delete the app, it will prevent you from getting ota updates. The best method imo is to use titanium backup to freeze the app so you can thaw it out when neeeded.

    That's right. The update will fail if any of the pre installed apps are missing. Its not the end of the world though because you can get them back without too much hassle (usually)

    Hey no worries. There's a thread that's stickied at the top of the droid 2 hacks section that has some if not all of the apks in it.
