    So Google has finished their announcement and it's Chrome to Phone & Google's One-Button Voice Actions. Basically my question is are these features that would just need to be turned on in the ROMs or are these things going to be released in future Froyo updates? I understand for Chrome to Phone it's going to be a plugin in Chrome and a download from the market for the phones.

    Edit: After doing some research I've found Chrome to Phone available in the Market and in the Chrome Extensions. Works perfectly

    Edit 2: Initially got the package signed incorrectly error for the Voice Search, did a nand backup, used titanium to uninstall the default voice search, rebooted and installed voice search through the market. Worked perfectly. I'd assume this would work for any Froyo ROMs but haven't tested.

    Got it working on Celeb 1.9. Initially got the package signed incorrectly error, did a nand backup, used titanium to uninstall the default voice search, rebooted and installed fine through the market. I'd assume this would work for any Froyo ROMs but haven't tested.

    I will actually assume that it is a root explorer of some sort that allows you to uninstall protected apps?

    if that is the case, is there an easy way to do it without downloading titanium? using terminal emulator on the phone itself or using adb?

    It's an app backup program (root use only) that allows you to install/uninstall/backup apps. I'd assume you'd be able to remove it through root explorer though.

    Here's a whole thread on removing unwanted apps. There's a few ways you can do it, ADB and terminal included.

    Apparently, it is built-in to the new V28. See the xda thread.

    adb remount

    adb shell rm /system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk
    adb uninstall com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox

    adb shell rm /system/app/VoiceSearch.apk
    adb uninstall com.google.android.voicesearch


    or you can use ES File Explorer to delete above files, or you can use Root Explorer to rename/delete files above. Or whatever free file program you want. Titanium allows you to delete or "freeze" so you can test before you remove.
