    Totally a noob to rooting and I surprising was able to root my phone. I have a few questions as to the best ways to taking advantage of a rooted thunderbolt. I know these questions have been asked but I want to make sure I get the answers.
    1) I downloaded Titanium Backup and noticed that you can uninstall bloatware from there, is this the a good idea or use something else to remove bloatware?
    2) Setup suggestions on getting the most out of my thunderbolt while still getting decent battery life. (roms, kernels, overclocking, etc)
    3) Any other suggestions welcomed. Thanks.

    If you report your phone as stolen that ESN can never be activated again as far as I know, and I worked for Verizon for almost a year. I could be wrong though.

    1) i saw a thread a couple weeks ago about deleting ...had a list of the one safe to delete..I'll edit and add a link as soon as I clear the cobwebs and remember were I found it..in the meanwhile dont randomly delete for now just freeze them..works just as well.
    2) everyone has there own opinion on roms ,kernals,ect..my 2 cents..the perfect storm v1.4 is the rom I'm using and since flashing I've seen inprovement in my batt life.
    3)download root explorer and root manager from the market...some of the best tools for a rooted phone.
