    so i was just curious, what stock apps is it unsafe to delete? i have been deleting my stock apps using the commands:
    *[FONT=&quot]cd /system/app (enter)
    /system/bin/mv Your_APP.apk Your_APP.apk.bak
    [/FONT][FONT=&quot](as far as i know, this does not delete the file incase you ever wish to re install it. it simply makes it not appear as an app so its not in your apps list.)[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    and all my apps worked that i tried except "Voice Mail." i entered:
    /system/bin/mb VVM.apk VVM.apk.bak

    and i did not get an error message. no voice mail apps appear in root explorer or astro or titanium backup, so i know it worked, but it still appears in my apps list.
    Heres the weird part, i just figured out clicking the app "Voice Mail" takes me to my stock HTC Messaging app and has all my txts listed. so can i delete the messaging app to see if that will work?

    i removed most of them, but got stuck with the sync icon in notifications bar, so i had to do a nand restore and now they're all back. i finally figured out it was complications with facebook and friend stream, this problem is widely publicized now, but back when i did it right when root first came out i wasnt really sure which were safe and which werent. basically, dont delete friend stream if you wanna continue to use facebook
