    i'm new to all this but after some "stupid" issues i got my hydro rooted and the only thing it changed was my background pic. it set it to the defalt boost screen, didn't affect any of my apps i already had

    I think I know what you're trying to say, but just in case - can you please type your questions from a computer instead of your phone?
    So many type on their phones - and frankly, between Auto-correct, and fingers too big for the Android keyboard... I just can't understand what many are asking.

    im thinkin maybe ill just stick to freezing an app till i can boot into clockwork.
    Using an app called root app delete to disable apps, everything mentioned above but i have noticed a lttle "slowness" at times when Holo launcher reloads, and had to pull the battery a couple times when opening a app before my widgets reappear all the way, froze up but could just be my phone.....maybe watching family guy in the shower is not what the had in mind when they said "waterproof"?

    for hidden apps on the hydro how are they accessed or are they simply & purely bloatware?

    ie: MusicFX - I haven't found it yet (other than in Titanium)
    or some Live wallpapers which are not available to choose when changing wallpapers, ie: system/media/video/sunset.240p.mp4

    i froze it for a while and used holo launcher..but that didnt seem to help my battery any..of course i had just reset my battery stats and timing, i switched back. But other than the suspected battery drain i didnt have problems..but thats just me..

    Yeah I'm a holo launcher fan. I usally switch the launcher to holo as long as it is still stable.

    I know this is a something you add instead of removing but link2sd works which will give you more room. Confirmed with fat32 partition. No side effects

    Removed launcher with no side effects as of yet. Done some memory tweaks still stable. And some kernel tweaks waiting to see what happens.

    removed the stock sms texting app (mms.apk) since i like GOsms pro far better. hit a snag when i realized i was unable to send/receive traditional mms messages (pictures, video, audio) and restoring the stock app has proved to be impossible since i neglected to back it up with titanium. luckily gosms has a setting where you can manually enter the server info and restore mms functionality.
    win :)


    and for the record i tried using mms.apk from my full backup of the system folder, managed to push the file back into system but it still refused to install.

    You need to set permissions correctly
    I use root explorer. Would definately recommend purchasing this app!

    i set the permissions exactly like those specified in your screenshot to no avail. i'll try root explorer but i dont know that it's much different than es file explorer as far as functionality, only interface.
