Any reason why you deleted Zumocast?
Just don't use it.

zumocast and DLNA are two that I will be using for sure. Have already used zumocast, will be trying DLNA as soon as I read a little more about it.
I have an idea. I'm thinking I could backup everything including the system bloatware with Titanium Backup Pro, delete the bloat and restore it later if I need to accept an OTA update. Titanium Backup has the option to restore apps to their original location so in theory it should be fine. This way you wouldn't have them taking up space in /system even after being frozen.
There probably isn't much benefit over just freezing the apps, but I just thought I'd throw that out there.

For people worried about receiving an OTA update, why are you worried? Probably an OTA will unroot the device. So why would we want that? More than likely a day or so after an OTA comes out, there will be a pre-rooted version that we can flash so we don't have to lose root.
Am I missing something here? I want to stay rooted!
+1 to this. If there is a OTA in the future, I will NOT be accepting it, even if I could lol..
You can find system dumps all over xda, you can get your missing .apks there.

I'm with you guys. I'm grateful to the Dev community for getting this thing rooted. I don't want to just turn around and throw away their hard work for an OTA update, that will probably fix nothing anyway.
How exactly do you "FREEZE" apps using Titanium Backup?
Maybe this does not belong in this thread, maybe it does. I'm not 100% sure, feel free to move if needed =)
In Titanium Backup click Backup/Restore at the top. Then there will be a list of apps, if you click the app you want to freeze there will an option to freeze it. Frozen apps will be highlighted in blue.
And don't I feel speshel =) Thanks DJ!
I have a quick question ... im rooted, and have renamed all the bloat appropriately with .bak extensions in place. The only file I CAN'T find
is the verizonbackup apk, which is running all the time. I DO have verizonbackupclient.apk renamed with the .bak extension. Is the actual verizonbackup apk in the system/app folder, or is it located in another folder. I've never enabled it since getting the phone so im not sure if thats the problem, or what the real name is for the apk, but it does appear to hidden from view. Id love to figure this out if anyone has any insight.
