    Ok guys, I'm new to the whole rooting scene so be kind. I upgrade to a Bionic a week ago and the only issue I had was all the bloatI can't get rid of and my battery going from 100 to 70 in about an hour! I took a leap of faith and rooted my device and installed the update to .893 and now when I take my phone off the charger, my battery lasts me almost all day (from 5am to about 11am before I get below 50%. MAJOR improvement. My question is now how do I get rid of all the VZW stuff? What program do I use? Where are the applications located? What can be SAFELY removed? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    My favorite program for getting rid of the useless Verizon crap is titanium backup. Not only is it great at getting rid of bloat, but it has saved my life more than once when I soft bricked my phone. You can make a complete backup of your system and all your apps. So basically if you have to flash your phone or factory reset, all you have to do is install this app again and run the restore from your SD card to get all of your apps back. In titanium backup you can freeze any unwanted apps. This removes them from your app drawer and also keeps them from running or updating. I promise you won't be disappointed and if your anything like me, it will save your life more than once.

    Is this app only for rooted phones? I had no idea rooting a phone would make a difference in the battery life. I steered clear of rooting because I figured I didn't know what I was doing and also VZW wouldn't represent any warranties for a rooted phone.

    I just have to say that this is the freakin COOLEST freakin app I have ever used! Titanium Backup Pro! Worth every single penny! And priced right too.. $6.58!

    I can freeze all VCAST crap Books, News and weather, or any other unwanted app, and since I use GO LAUNCHER, it removes all of those unwanted apps visually. Now I don't have to flash a new ROM, this is just freakin AMAZING! Finally someone wrote a great application that works perfectly ! ! ! !

    I felt the same way when I rooted and was able to finally try Tibu after hearing all the good comments. I then fell out of my chair after I bootlooped my phone and had to restore with my nandroid backup. I was able to restore via Tibu the data for all my apps, that was awesome LOL

    What the hell does "rooted" mean? Should I be doing this? I loose battery like crazy, used to have an extended battery that lasted me two days if I was lucky, that broke so now i'm using the regular battery. If I do anything other than make calls or txt it dies down really quickly, won't even last half the day.

    Take a look at http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/632-what-root-means-stop-asking.html (ignore the title, it's an old post) for some information on rooting. Basically rooting gives you superuser access, allowing you to make changes to your OS. When rooted you can change the look of the Bionic via ROMs as well as giving you access to apps that will only work on a rooted phone.
