Default Is there a list of apps/files that can be safely deleted after root?

I have seen lists for other phones, but I can't find one for the Droid 1. I don't want to get rid of anything that might support other services, etc, but I would love to get rid of as much as possible.

I'd suggest you install Titanium Backup. It allows you to "freeze" system apps before removing them. Freezing them allows you to disable them without actually removing them from the system. If you realize that freezing the app causes malfunctions due to dependencies, you can unfreeze it. Otherwise you can simply delete it. I'm unaware of a comprehensive list of system apps that are safe to remove for the original Droid. Neall

That is a very good idea. I do have Titanium and recently upgraded it to the full version (which has the freezing capability), and I can do things one at a time to see what happens. A list of those who have already gone through it would be useful, but using the freezing method is very do-able. Thanks!

Droidforums.net... there are multiple lists there. Or click my username and hit view profile, then statistics, then "ll threads started by niceguysfinishlast" and look for the thread titled "my battery life writeup", I just posted it the other day, and there's a full list of what I've frozen.

Thanks a lot for that list, there is a lot there! I don't think all of them are on the D1, but what is there I can consider freezing and/or deleting.

BRILLIANT! My bluetooth headset kept turning on the stock music player (instead of Cubed) and I'd end up with 2 players going at once. Just made a backup, went into TiBU and froze the music player... no more problems! THANK YOU

Chief, I had that same problem! Before I had the full Titanium and so could not freeze, I used Root Explorer to go in and change the name of the stock music file's extension and that worked as well. It just disappeared from my app list and has not bothered me anymore. Freezing would have been even easier. I now have the full Titanium and so can use that freezing option for other apps.

BTW, I am using WinAmp now, and that has an option to turn off headset control, which is needed when I want to use Beyondpod for podcasts. How do you like Cubed compared to Winamp, does it have that "control headset" toggle? Have you tried the new leaked Motorola player?

I don't know - I haven't tried either one. I'm so hooked on Cubed I haven't bothered to try anything else! I am on my BT headset some 10 hours a day, so I don't really NEED a toggle. I may try the leaked Moto player, but I don't give it much of a chance against Cubed.

Back onto the subject of a list, here's a link to CyanogenMod's wiki, and he's been working with Android for a long, long, long, time and is even one contributor to their source:

good luck
