    Thanks to #TEAMWIN for Fre3vo temp-root, Eugene373 for the .bat, and rmk40 at xda for the disable apps guide!

    Now that there is working temporary root & an easy to use .bat file (see here), we can quickly disable system apps. Disabling apps will remove them from the app drawer and keep them from running. They will still take up memory space, but for all other purposes they are out of the way. Since this is only a temp root we can't fully delete them as they will be reinstalled on reboot. With disabling, however, they setting presists after reboot so no need to maintain root (unless you run root apps). Here is a link to instructions for disabling apps.

    So now that we have all this lets keep a running list of apps that are safe to disable. Below is my list of apps and their corresponding package name. All are tested and 100% safe.

    Lookout = com.lookout
    T-Mobile Mobile Backup = com.voxmobili.sync.MobileBackup2
    My Account (system process) = com.nuance.nmc.sihome
    My Account (user app, includes My Device) = com.tmobile.selfhelp
    Wifi Calling = com.android.kineto
    T-Mobile App Pack (includes Highlight & T-Mobile Mall) = com.tmobile.apppack
    Telenav = com.telenav.app.android.telenav

    As others add in their apps I will update this post.
