    First of let me apologize if I'm double posting. Hit the wrong button & everything disappeared.

    I have the free version of Titanium Backup and was able to get rid of a few of at&t's bloatware but a couple apps came up with "failed to find the apk file" What do I do about fixing this so I can uninstall these. For example I now have 2 Bejeweleds one is the att preloaded app & the other is the one I bought. Thanks for any input I have the att fusion 2 which I rooted, thanks to this forum.

    Hello and welcome Elora_Q!!
    I moved your thread here since you are rooted. :)

    I don't understand when you say, "failed to find the apk"??
    You found it in TB, but were unable to uninstall it and got that message?

    Using Titanium and trying to uninstall an app the message comes up "Failed to locate the apk file".

    hmmm, I will admit that I am not familiar with your device ;) but, perhaps the app you are trying to uninstall is disabled in "menu/settings/manage applications/all" ?

    Try doing it manually. Get something like Root Explorer and go into system/app. You might have to move it over to the SD card so it uninstalls.

    TaDa!!! I took you advise Radiance and purchased Root Explorer and it opened up all kinds of files. I finally found all the pre-installed apps under cust/att/us/app they were all there except for one which I found somewhere else (where I can't remember now) Thank you everyone for helping.

    I second this. I used es explorer to search and found that the apps that I converted to system apps with link2sd were located at system priv-app on an LG phone.
