    Ok got root finally. Samsung rugby pro Downloaded titanium backup pro. Under the backup and restore part of titanium backup some of the apps are highlighted in purple. It looks like these apps are blotware. Just trying to go slow and not jack up my phone. Oh i have done a complete back up of the phone. Im trying to get rid of the blotware to make room on my phone. Any help would be appreciated in getting rid of the blotware. Thanks again for any help.

    If you are planning on flashing a custom ROM, the Dev's usually remove all the bloat.

    Take a screen shot, purple is confusing me. Red are system apps (be very careful with those.) Yellow are xml files and white/green are usually user apps.

    Never back up and restore system apps between Android versions. Read the titanium backup faq in preferences. It's very helpful.

    Looks to me that if they are purple, those apps are frozen

    I would try freezing them first, and see how it effects your system. If everything seems alright then remove them but have a backup that you can reinstall if needed. I read too many times on here of people looking for a app that they removed.

    Think I figured it out. Before i was able to get root i went in and disabled the apps that are in purple. Titanium backup is seeing them as frozen. Thanks everyone for your help.

    Don't bank on it, but I'm pretty sure Backup Assistant is a VZW app (I've never seen any purple apps on my phone). Those stupid apps always gave me trouble and were trying to run (I assume VZW has fixed it by now).
