    I uninstalled Backup assistant and am now stuck in a boot loop. after the eye, it goes to the locked home screen, a voice said "verizon wireless" and then it reboots. is there anyway to recover?

    Look in the Rooting thread, there are several links and posts on recovery tools.

    Worst case you might have to SBF back to stock.

    Possibly you can use ADB to push the backup assistant apk to the phone...

    Did you make a nandroid backup before you removed backup assistant? If you did, boot into recovery (power on while holding X key) and restore your nandroid from CW Recovery.

    You might want to try Titanium Backup - it allows you to "freeze" apps, which removes them from your app drawer and puts them in non-running limbo.

    You can also just hide app icons in Launcher Pro so they don't appear in your app drawer. If an app isn't running (and I think Backup Assistant is "quiet" unless you're using it) that might be enough.

    I'm starting to think I should have used titanium backup because I don't know how to reinstall these apps..

    If you use TiBackup you won't have to uninstall/reinstall, just freeze 'em. :)
