    Everyone Needs To Wait

    Too many people are having issues.

    I don't care if you think you are perfectly fine with your removed bloatware. Put it back. Or rename one at a time to .bak.

    It is too early, and we are having wayyy to many people bricking phones. You need to wait until we have a custom recovery.

    Now rooting is fine, and so is installing root only apps. But I warn you DO NOT, remove the bloatware, infact I would suggest against even renaming any of it.

    I know bloatware is annoying, but I would rather be stuck with bloatware, than a brick.

    We do not know enough about what to remove and what not to.

    also. If you claim to be a noob. Please stay away from this, until we have a way of being absolutely sure, and have a plan B in the event of a brick.

    Can we get an outline on how to install the bloatware back and setting permisions via ADB? I would use root explorer if I had the $ to buy it right now.

    As long as you know what's safe to remove, there shouldn't be any problems. I think the real problem are apps like Root Explorer that allow people to delete whatever they want without doing any reading.

    could be. only thing ive removed is cityid, amazon, blockbuster, mynet. I think thats it, just all the 3rd party apps. Only odd thing ive noticed is that when I run quadrant my FPS bar is sort of cut off. Didnt do that before I rooted.

    The issue isn't that the system goes crazy without them or anything. You can remove them and it will run fine. BUT if you somehow get into a bootloop or someting, you CAN NOT do a factory reset if you have removed any apps. It will cause a bootloop. This is why he says to put them back.

    Removing them isn't what causes problems. But if you attempt a factory reset after you have removed some apps, it will put you into an endless bootloop and you'll have a nice 4.3" paperweight.

    Very true. I read alot before doing most of this stuff. I Rooted/custom rom flash my eris, incredible now droid x and alot of the older devices and ipaqs. Mostly through following how to guides. Now I'm stuck not being able to update at the moment because at my own risk decided to remove a few third party apps with titanium. I have redownloaded apks, will titanium reinstall them with proper permissions so I'd be able to update .604 ?

    Here is a link to my post describing my situation in detail. I rooted using terminal emulator because of issues with adb which Im sure are because doing so much htc eris and incredible adb stuff recently. Prolly need to use usbdeveiw and clean some stuff out.
