    I keep reading about people performing factory resets after they remove things. I removed a lot and have not performed one. Is it recommended?

    if you delete an app and it still shows up in the drawer, then yes

    Hmm that happened to me but then I just rebooted my phone and it was gone.

    Ok that makes sense then.

    A strange thing I noticed today was that my battery seemed to be draining quicker after i renamed a few apk to bak. I renamed, BB,backupassist,amazon,callerid and fm. Since then my battery only lasted a half a day. I am wondering if anyone else has seen this and also Im wondering if the software still searches for the app after it can not find it?

    YA saw that, Just wanted to see if anyone else noticed the same. I have since then renamed everything and will see how much longer the battery will last. Thanks!

    So i bought root explorer, and maybe i'm just an idiot, but i don't see a 'mount as r/w' option... i can get to the services but obviously it won't allow me to rename them b/c i'm mounted as read only.

    thoughts?

    EDIT: Guess I'm just a moron and didn't read the first line in the first post.
