    Just rooted my Droid X. I installed Autostarts and I used it to disable a bunch of the bloatware on my phone. But I can't figure out how to get Social Networking app, FeedRecieverSerivce, NewsRetrievalService (had 2 now only have 1), and the WeatherService to all stop loading at startup. Any ideas?

    Also, I've disabled CityID everywhere but somehow it came back up....are there any settings I have to set in the app to make this easier or see more options?

    Are there any less obvious but still unnecessary things I can disable in Autostarts?

    Thanks for the help.

    For anyone wondering about this here's an update. I've got all of the noise stopped on startup. The only problem is that Social Networking and City ID both come up on after I make a call....are there any hidden things I need to get rid of in Autostarts? I don't feel like removing these apps since 2.2 will come out soon and then I'll have to put them back to get the update...that being said will I have to reset my autostarts to apply the update or will the update work with some of the autostarts disabled?

    just change both of them in system/apps to have a bak extenstion instead of APK..then basically, the OS wont be able to find them and will not boot them (i just deleted them entirely though

    Yea, I just ended up changing them all to .bak. Just going to be a pain for the froyo update.

    You have to leave enable usb debugging checked. If you don't do that then autostarts will get suck all the time.
