    I love Gingerbread on the Pro, and love having it rooted (kudos to P3), but have noticed that its a little trickier to freeze unwanted apps (via Titanium Backup) without stumbling upon system conflicts.

    Note - I use Launcher Pro Plus for my launcher app. I also use Handcent for SMS and K9 for all my email (4 gmail/google apps accounts); no MS Exchange

    Thus far, the things I have successfully frozen:
    • Bookmarks Widget
    • CityID
    • Email
    • Email Authenticator
    • Files
    • Flickr
    • Help Center
    • Home screen tips
    • LastFM
    • Messaging
    • My Verizon Mobile
    • Myspace
    • New & Weather
    • News
    • NFS Shift
    • Orkut
    • Photobucket
    • Quickoffice
    • Rich Location
    • Skype mobile
    • Skyrock Authenticator
    • Social Messaging
    • Social Messaging Services
    • Social Networking
    • Social Sharing
    • Social Status
    • Task Manager
    • Toggle Widgets
    • V Cast Apps
    • Voice Commands
    • VZ Navigator
    • Weather
    • Yahoo Contacts [​IMG]

    Thanks for the list.

    I'm surprised they didn't take some of these out themselves.

    Great, i froze some other stuff with no issues except the Yahoo Mail Authenticator 2.3.3: with this frozen Contacts Storage was crashing everytime that i was trying to access Contacts or Text Messages. It's weird because none of my contacts has any yahoo email and i thought that might be the problem..

    Another thing is.. Is anybody seeing 3G Mobile Hotspot in titanium backup? With Froyo i froze 3G Mobile Hotspot but with GB looks like i can't because it doesn't figure in the app list of Titanium Backup

    I believe that 3g hotspot is built into the system rather than just an app in the system. Across the board on motorolas gingerbread builds, people are having a tough time figuring out how to freeze it.

    Sorry for bumping this threat, however, I am very curious about the following: Why freeze apps instead of just uninstalling them?

    1. It's safer because it's a reversible action
    2. If certain apps are missing, it can refuse to apply a system update. Thus, you can freeze annoying apps, defrost them when a system update is available, apply the update, then refreeze your apps.
