    Hey, guys...new to the Droid forum and the phone itself. Came over from the Blackberry world.

    Anyway, how can I uninstall pre-installed programs, i.e. Corporate Calendar, Goggles?

    Thanks,
    T

    You can only uninstall pre-loaded apps if you're rooted.

    check this out - http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/632-what-root-means.html

    and yes, you do have to bee rooted to unistall pre-installed apps and also to use titanium backup...my bad, ={ i just assumed you were rooted already...just about everyone is these days. =}

    after reading about rooting and you decide you want to do it follow this guide - http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...royo-step-step-installation-2.html#post528613

    The OTA updates which is rumored now for 7/7 will not be rooted. Nothing that is sent OTA is rooted. If you want root you have to do it yourself.

    The version of 2.2 offered at MDW and also available here in our news section has root with it. So if you want 2.2 with root, that would be the way to go.
