    Ok I have this weird thing going on and I need your help. Specifically, when ever I delete something using Root Explorer or Titanium B.U. it returns! No matter what I delete, it comes back even after I reboot. What is gong on? Is there a auto back up feature I am not aware of? Thanks

    Have you tried other file explorers like Astro?

    Yes but Astro, File manager etc cannot do root stuff. Can you tell me where to delete programs that are "system Apps"? I mean delete a program that is base installed? Thanks

    You are rooted, right? Also, in root explorer, you need to tap the R/W button to alter protected apps. I'm not up to snuff on Titanium.

    Wherever im told to drive to.
    Default apps can be found in /system/app. I probably don't need to remind you, but be careful what you delete in there!

    Better yet, move them to a dir in your sd card. That way you can always move one back (and fix its permissions) if you make a mistake.
