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

What's the difference between a uninstall and a freeze with Titanium Pro?

    I assume the freeze does what it says and keeps it on phone but makes it invisible and in active? Uninstall mean it actually uninstalls it from the phone to the sd card maybe? What is the safest bet in case you want to get motorolas updates in the future? Also I may want to unroot in future and change back etc? Thanks

    Your right about freezing and uninstalling is what it sounds, removing. It from the phone completely. Freezing is the way to go to get the updates.

    I strongly recommend not deleting undesirable apps. Use either Titanium to freeze them or use Root Explorer and rename them by adding ".bak" to them (appname.apk becomes appname.apk.bak). Both of these methods can be undone easily and quickly.

    Good luck.

    Perfect that is what I thought but just wanted a confirmation. I did use Titanium backup and froze all I didn't want. Is there something that is benefical to uninstalling them? Thanks

    Like BayouFisher suggested above. Freeze them instead of deleting them, specially if you're unsure. Main reason for doing this is so you're able to update your device in the future. Without system apps in tact, you won't be able to take any OTA updates.

    Freeze and don't delete! ;)

    If you can just one click restore, what diff does it make if you delete system apps? Can't you just restore, update then remove em again?
