    I renamed MyVerizon.apk to MyVerizon.bak and the app still opens.

    Too bad the icons don't disappear when you change .apk to .bak. The blockbuster app still shows up in my app draw.

    Edit- nvm they can be uninstalled now from the app draw.

    If you delete this from the application drawer, does the application still stay in the system/apps directory? I hate that stupid blockbuster app.

    Yea it's still in there but as .bak and not .apk. I didn't delete the files I don't want, just renamed them.

    Okay..

    I finally managed to root my Droid X.. However, will this brick my Droid X if I decided to recover it/reinstall it?

    So if I removed all of these junks that Verizon installed it, will it improve the speed or ... just wondering.

    It took me a while to root Droid X but I finally GOT IT!:icon_ banana:
