    Root Uninstaller is easier and FREE to freeze apps.

    Root uninstaller is free with a trial, only 3 un-freeze

    Thank you for reply.

    So if or when there is an ota update I will have to rename all of the .bak files back to apks to be able to update?
    Also will have superuser on my phone affect an ota update?

    Most of my unwanted apps are .bak now but I did remove several vzw apps. How would I go about replacing those now? Didn't have all the bloat with the OG so I guess I got a little overzealous when I could get rid of it :)
    Would a factory reset bring that back and then I just start over?

    No. Probably not. You'd have to get someone with root to pull those and send them to u.

    Hi can anyone help, I've done the one click root and the phones successfully been rooted however titanium back up and superuser both tell me I don't have root. I've looked around to see if anyone else has had this problem and on what to do next and found that downloading Root Uninstaller would help me freeze the apps however even that tells me I don't have root even though I followed the instructions successfully. Thanks

    Maybe we need to get a sticky going and a place to dump all these .apks? I don't have webspace, or I'd host them.

    I have a Dropbox I don't really use...mainly because I tend to screw it up. If someone wants to tell me what we need to do to store those apps and make them accessible to everyone here, I would be glad to. PM me.

    UPDATE: Posted by Javier78 on XDA. This is the system/app folder
