    hello

    I am going to root my new Bionic soon, can I use Titanium Back up as well when I'm done, also anyone got a good teather app for a rooted Bionic ? I noticed with my X that when I tried to rent a movie via the market it denied me because my X was rooted any one kow of a way around that?

    Thanks

    What do you mean can you "Use titanium backup"? You can use it as long as your rooted to backup apps on your phone. And I used this to use free tethering by using SQLite.




    Very simple to do, enjoy! Hope this helped.

    What exactly do you mean "Verizon Updates"? Like OTA Updates? Not positive what you mean by freezing the phone.

    Sorry I'm trying to make sure the phone does not accept or look for any Verizon software updates ie. operating system. I am rooted and I don't want to Brick the phone. Does that make sense ?

    The only way you will brick it is if you remove bloatware and update. Be sure to be on the original if you do update. Your phone will not update automatically.

    Hope this helps,
    Thanks,

    There's a post somewhere on this forum that mentions you can stop auto-receiving of OTA updates from Moto/VZ by freezing the update service with TB Pro. May want to do a little more research as to the specifics, but it can be done.
