Hi everyone, I have an h866c / Ginger bread 2.3.6, I just bought with Straight Talk service. The first thing that really annoyed me was Google play. It's like using a Lap-Top(running Windows), and having to go through Microsoft to download all software on to my computer. Warning!!! >>>This action voids your Warranty<<< So... I rooted it with Poot, Superuser and Titanium Backup, 3free Apps. It worked! I now have Superuser control!!! Sooo.... Now I want to avoid (maybe remove) Google control over my phone. My questions to you, that will educate others too, are... 1, What files/apps does Google use for its control over your phone/life. And I do mean Life; with their comprehensive tracking of my location, searches, calls, contact lists, and God knows what else they use to put together in a personal profile of me(and you) - to sell($$$$$) on to others. 2, What can we accomplish with out Big brother. 3, Is it safe, to go it alone. I hope we can have comprehensive discussions, with out acronyms - etc.. So we do not lose "Newbie's". Thank you! I will add any thing I learn from others to this thread in the future. Oh, Appologies to the Moderators if I am repeating a thread, I could not find.
