    Until a blurless ROM comes along, what is everyone freezing/renaming?

    OK I am having some Contacts problems.
    I havent been able to determine what combination of files need restored.
    right now I have unfrozen most of them and it is working again. Just havent had time to go through them 1 by 1 and figure out where it breaks

    If your contacts force close when you press them? Then this is the app that I froze that caused that problem for me. Hope it helps

    I'm trying to build a spreadsheet database of known apps/apk's installed as part different phones/ROM's so you can make a better decision on what apps are, and if they're safe to delete. Check it out here:

    If you find your answer, and can add it to the list please do to help others in the future. :)
