    There are two apps which can't be frozen ... Google Play Books and Google Play Movies. I freeze them in Titanium Backup, but if I reboot the phone they defrost themselves. I disabled them through the manage apps in the phone with ICS. And interestingly enough, I read on another forum that if you try to watch a Google Movie on a rooted phone, you will get a message saying "This movie cannot be viewed because your device appears to be rooted" :icon_eek: Big Brother is watching. Damn the torpedoes ... full tether ahead! :p

    On Stock ICS I couldn't get Backup Assistant or Backup Assistant Plus to disable. Why do they think you need backup assistant when you have a Google account?

    As for the original instructions, I don't know why you wouldn't just hit menu, manage apps, all apps and then click on the apps you want to disable from there.

    I noticed the same thing... when I disable the apps they are only disabled until I reboot the phone, then they pop up again... very irritating!

    I'm so glad I came across this thread! Thanks OP. I needed to find a way to somehow get rid of or in this case disable these bloatware apps that I dont use. After disabling some, my phone seems to respond a bit quicker than what I was used to. Here's hoping that there aren't any issues from this.
