    I have a rooted desire, but I have a troublesome app that won't update and I can't delete. I have seen others who have had the same problem, and a solution is to rename the app .apk.old and then redownload it, but I can't find a decent app to do this. Any suggestions? I do have superuser permissions.

    Is it an app from the market?

    Try reinstalling it then deleting it again.

    If you want to rename it, use Root Explorer. For deleting, you could use Chuck Norris mode in Titanium Backup. Regardless, I consider those to be two "must have" apps.
