    The silent boot file was maintained by the 2.3.3 update.
    Still silent.

    FWIW....the modified Browser database remained as well.
    No need to do this again if you get the 2.3.3 update.

    Does deleting "[Bookmarks] Browser 2.3.3" remove this database file?

    that removes the stock browser. everything works fine after you do that, except some apps actually require the stock browser - google voice search.

    I remember doing this. if you read the tables, the reason they are 'on the top' is that Verizon has set the visit count to something like 10000000. if you use a sql tool you can do something to the effect of update tablex set veiwcount = '0';

    thats what I did when I was pissed about those 'bookmarks'.

    These methods wouldn't work for me, possibly just a flaw in my execution. I found another thread where I just downloaded an app (bookmark manager) and it was able to delete them, easier lol.
