    Another question...

    Is there a guide online about the Android Recovery Mode (J_r0dd....)

    I get in there and Get the Backup/Restore command...
    But wait there is more...

    1. Reboot system (No problem I get that)
    2. Usb-Ms Toggle (???)
    3. Backup Restore (Roger that)
    4. Flash Zip from SD card (???)
    5. Wipe (Chilling... What could this do?)
    6. Partion SD (I suspect I get that..)
    7. Other (These seem interesting)
    A. Fix Permissions (???Not sure exactly what that is about)
    B. Move Apps + dalvik to SD (Man Move?? Really does it remove them from the device)
    C. Move Recovery Log to sd (??)


    I am not adverse to doing searches but I have been having a hard time finding info on this tool...

    Dave.

    I installed startup manager that allows you to disable startup programs as long as your phone is rooted. Its kind of dangerous, I made a list of started tasked from the task killing application. I found like AT&T maps, google mail, etc were auto loading. So I started to disable them one by one and rebooting. Advanced task killer showed each time that the task was indeed gone.

    Feeling good about this I went on my merry way until I tried to install an app from the app store. I was able to browse but when it came time to download it would just stay in the download mode with nothing being received. So I reversed the process and re-enabled all the apps I disabled and when I rebooted the store was able to download the app.

    So far the only ones I disabled was AT&T Navigator and Google Maps and the phone is still stable. From now on I am gong to test a lot of functionality after removing an app with startup manager. I am still trying to figure what Gmail Storage and Google Talk Service is doing when I don't use either of these two apps or the web equivalents.

    I removed every single app on the "approved" list
    My phone is running great, much better than it ever has before
    All my features still work. Mainly the phone just runs a whole lot smoother.

    I, too, was able to remove a lot of the crapware and the performance is much better. Thanks to the crew on the Backflip Root! Thread.

    Same here. Much more stable. Also I saw my DL/UL speed over WiFi jump signifigantly. It went from 2-3.5Mb/s before, to 8-10Mb/s now. IDK what was changed for that to happen though.

    In addition to removing the crapware, I suggest using CacheMate for root users

    I did that after i removed the stuff, and my available storage doubled in size. and no performance lag to speak of

    This is probably a stupid question, but . . . .

    I use Dolphin as my Internet browser and Handcent for texting. Is it possible to remove the stock browser and text applications, or are they too tightly integrated into the operating system?
