1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    The only way to remove stock apps (affectionately know as bloatware or just bloat) is to root your phone and either delete or freeze them.

    Root the phone and install Titanium Backup. Then use Titanium to "freeze" the apps. That way they can be recovered/unfrozen if you ever need to. However, they can not be run as long as they are frozen. Just make sure you find a list of apps that are ok to be frozen before you do it. You can create havoc by freezing the wrong apps.

    Good luck.

    All very good advice. And if you're ever not sure there will be people along the way to assist. I would recommend reading up in this stuff before diving right in. That way you know what to do before you do it :)

    Yes you can. It is actually quite easy but you do need a computer. It is the same method used to root the Droid 3 but it also works on all Moto devices running gingerbread. Here is the link to the specific tool I use: Pete's Motorola Root Tool.
