    Which IM do i delete?

    Ok i want to get rid of the stock IM app because it only allows you to get on through cellular connection. But there are three in Titanium Backup and idk which is what, i dont want to mess anything up. One is IM.apk, one is ImpsProvider.apk and the last is ImProvider.apk

    I don't know if it will brick the phone, but it seems likely. It runs in the background almost constantly and task killers don't seem to touch it. At best it might just lock you out of the market. But I haven't tried anything, so if you're adventurous and you have a backup, let us know what happens!

    I tried this, it is a part of the gapps package, if you do this gapps will crash and you will lose functionality of the market and several other google apps. I wholly recommend against this action.

    YES! DO NOT Remove the IM Apps...I Found out the Hard way, And I'm going to end up reflashing it to the Standard OEM OS, Then Re-Rooting this phone AGAIN! In the mean time, Anything that's Google prefaced in the Flip's OS...I Wouldn't Touch!
