Aria .apk list... unwanted apps... need help

    Hi all, decided to register as im a recently new Aria owner with afew questions.

    Iv done the leg work. done my research, rooted my Aria no hassle using Unrevoked (so yay me!:D) & NAND backup to be safe... didnt use a ROM I just want to remove any & all apps i dont use or need. I already removed anything to do with Stocks, Twitter & Flickr (as far as i can tell) using adb shell.

    Recently iv been looking for .apk lists & going through threads to see whats safe & whats not... but lists & threads dont seem to match my Aria's (HUGE!) list, me being in Australia could hav something to do with this or it could be cause mine came stock with firmware 2.1... idk

    But here's my list, any & all info is a great help & muchly appreciated.
    To avoid confusion I abbreviated my list jus adding the .odex extention to the .apk eg:

    Browser.apk
    Browser.odex
    =
    Browser.apk.odex

    Hope that makes sense...

    You won't have all of this as the Evo is a sprint device...but many are the same on both the aria and evo. also check out the link over to xda that gives a little more detail on each/some items.

    I pulled this from Matlock's how to root thread in the Evo rooting forum. Hope it helps




    If you have not already bought Titanium Backup, now is the time, and the reason to do it! Titanium Backup gives you the ability to FREEZE the apps you do not want running on your device. Rather than uninstalling them (this can cause a conflict with updating to a new OTA in the future (if you are not using a custom ROM)).

    STEP 1: Download Titanium Backup PRO version $5.97
    STEP 2: Open Titanium Backup
    STEP 3: Press "Backup/Restore" section
    STEP 4: Find the APP you want to FREEZE
    STEP 5: Click the APP > press FREEZE!

    APPS SAFE TO FREEZE (Bonus: Apps you freeze will remove themselves from the App Drawer)
