    Im sure there is a thread for this but I couldn't find it. So, im using titanium backup to remove stock apps and system files. Does anyone have a list of apps that can be frozen or uninstalled? Thank you!

    I wouldn't uninstall anything. Just freeze them to avoid problems like random reboots and frozen screens. Things I would freeze :backup asistant, those games that were installed when you do the 2.3.240 update. There's a forum here that talks about this.

    Droid X. Rooted with Z4root and underclocked to save battery life.

    Go to filters and just start going through one-by-one freezing those you believe should be.

    "Freezing" is done with Titanium Backup Pro. The apps will no longer run but are still on the phone.
    "Renaming" is done with Root Explorer by changing the extension of the app from "blahblah.apk" to "blahblah.apk.bak" and rebooting.
    You may uninstall some and be fine but, what if you delete one that messes something up or the wrong one? Freezing or renaming is MUCH safer :)

    Why would you want to delete after everyone on here has said its a bad idea?

    Anyway lets put it this way.. uhhh you cant delete those programs. no program will let you, yeah thats it. So I guess you will just have to take everyones advice here and freeze or rename them.
