    We would like to welcome everyone to the latest section of DroidForums.net dedicated to the upcoming Pantech Breakout LTE android phone. For a low end device, the hardware specs are quite impressive. Anyone thinking about this phone?

    I'd consider it, I am just afraid their will be lack of development on this phone. Hardly and roms, themes, for it would make me sad, if I got this phone.

    I have the new pantech breakout. Has anyone figured out how to delete the apps that verizon installed? The apps are draining my battery but I can't delete them.

    Had this Breakout for only 3 weeks.. so don't know everything.. yet. From what I understand: to uninstall the apps that came with the phone you would have to root it to gain admin rights.. however, you can hide those pesky bloatware apps.. here's how: click the APPS button then click the Menu button (bottom left button) click Edit, a context menu appears letting you know how it can be done. The icons with a red X in the right upper corner are apps that can be uninstalled/deleted.. if it doesn't have the red X then you can Hide them: Long Press the icon and drag it to the Hide button.

    Get rid of the live wallpaper to help save your battery.. scroll left or right to find a blank spot on your screen.. Long Press and a context menu appears.. press Wallpapers, press Wallpapers again.. select a static wallpaper rather than a live one.

    You can root with zergRush and then use titanium backup to remove them.

    Rooting and unrooting the Breakout

    I am a nube at this stuff and am trying to learn how things are done. I want to remove a bunch of the apps that come with my Breakout so I can install apps that are useful to me. I understand that I have to use scripting to root my phone, but I do not know how to do this. Be gentle, use small words.

    Thanx

    I've searched and found 2 root methods that work for the Breakout. One is zergRush and SuperOneClick.

    Link to instructions for SuperOneClick - Once you get your phone rooted, you'll need Titanium Backup. Grab it from the Android Market, use it to freeze unwanted apps.

    Can I upgrade from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich on my Pantech Breakout?

    I have succesfully rooted my phone with SuperOneClick. Now I'm wondering if there is any custom Ice Cream Sandwich ROM around that I can flash to my Breakout?

    I tried to use SuperOneClick. It told me it was successful, but Titanium Backup gives me an error. I tried ver 2.2 and 2.3.3. 2.3.3 locks up. What am I doing wrong?

    I have tried to root my phone with SuperOneClick, unsuccessfully. Wonder what I am doing wrong. What mode should the usb port be in? PC data, Charge only, Windows Media sync, or usb mass storage?

    I think you have to enable the debugging mode. In my phone you get there like this: Settings>Applications>Development>USB debugging

    debugging mode is enabled, but SuperOneClick starts to run but stops part way thru and does not complete. I have tried restarting the computer and the phone. Can I clear the phone and try again? Any other suggestions?

    Having issues with my Gallery and being able to enlarge pictures sent to me through text. Very aggravating. The issue comes and goes, and I have had a hard reformat of the phone.

    My sister-in-law has the breakout and she is having issues and I would like to see if its a known issue before going to verizon tomorrow. (She isnt the kind of person to come to a forum and knows nothing about technology so I'm going with her)

    She had her phone charging while she slept and it was still charging at noon. Over 12hrs and it wasnt fully charged. Also, her data connection is horrible. She wasn't able to connect to wifi for a long time. Now its working but when away from wifi she can't get on the internet, market, nothing. She can receive calls and texts but thats it. She took it to verizon once for this issue and whatever they did to it made it worse.

    Are these known issues for the breakout? I can't find much on here about this phone. Any info would be much appreciated.
