    First make sure you have usb debugging enabled in application development settings. Install z4root by Googling it and clicking in first link. After opening, if you have METRO, choose temporary root. Then install titanium backup from market. :) P.S. Make sure you do not uninstall mail@metro as it will cause problems.

    If you rooted already, just download Titanium Backup from Market.

    burner, i deleted mainly what you have on your lists and have had no problems either but then again i only froze them, i only deleted uno and the free games.

    also question for josey, is there a reason you recomend temp root vs. perm root for metro? i have metro, it was my first time rooting but i did permanent and all seems fine should i change that?

    Im not Josey but I'll chime in here. A temporary root. Simply means your phone is rooted until you turn it off. Then you would have to do it again.

    A permanent root is better. Z4root also has an unroot option as well.

    yeah i read up a bit between the two options before i did it seeing how it was my first time but i went with permanent and it seems all is ok and yes i also saw that unroot option.

    The reason i chose temp. Was because SOME Metro users were saying permanent didn't work for them, but if it worked for you, then its ok

    Joser are you online? I just tried to d/ld z4root from the xda-developer site and the install was unsuccessful. Got this message:

    Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone.

    I have USB debugging on. Also, have it set to accept unknown apps etc.

    Any ideas?

    Just want to say thank you to Burner for actually posting a pretty complete list of what can be deleted on a Metro Ascend. Very helpful.

    Thanks again

    You can't go wrong using ROOT EXPLORER Just Back up first the .apk and .odex you want to delete.
    I bought this phone for my G/f rooted and deleted all the crapware the first minute I got back home.
    (Easier to root than My Samsung Moment)
    Free Games
    Mobile Banking
    Mobile IM
    Virtual Card
    Metro Back up. (useless) since your contacts are always backed since you use gmail.
    I deleted Metro app store and easy wifi since Android has it's native wifi and haven't had any issues.

    Actually, removing MetroPCS Easy Wifi won't affect your wifi at all, and will actually save you even more battery life. This is because every time you enable your wifi, easy wifi starts shortly after, and is really useless. I read all it does is help save wifi connection information such as pw and settings, meanwhile normal wifi can do that. Just do not delete anything google related.

    When you turn it back on, do you see a new app in your drawer called Superuser?
