    Well if you are like me you hate using the navigation on the phone because of the stupid robotic voice. So I did some searching and found svox English voice. Sounds soo much better I love it. My problem after the install I tried it out and it will switch back in forth between the 2 voices.

    This is where I need the help. I had to install talk to speech extended and I think the original talk to speech is affecting it. I am running XtrRom 5.0, and it already had the talk to speech installed. I have never removed programs from my phone other than apps. I do have root explorer just can't find the right file to get rid of. Thanks for the help.

    First of all, make sure you do a nandroid before you attempt to remove anything in the system/app folder. I did a quick look at my phone (running Tazz Gingerbread) and it looks like TtsService.apk is the file you want to delete. I can't say if it is safe to delete or not, so like I said make a nandroid. I don't know if tts uses anything else that would need to be removed as well. Good luck, and if you figure it out post it here so we know.

    Can you freeze an apk file with TI?

    Personally I've never used navigation on my phone. I use my Magellan when I need to find something.

    Ok sorry I haven't posted what I found. I do know that 2.2 my new navigation voice works, on 2.1 I have the robot chick. I did remove ttsservice.apk, and ttsservice.odex. Now I found out that the odex file you want to keep. lol I still had a nand backup so I just restored and all is good, just need to remove the apk and see if that works.

    Maybe it's the picotts.apk, I will try that next.

    FYI don't remove the ttsservice or odex, you can't install speech syntasis, so no text to speech.

    If anyone else reads this post, I have found that the svox text to speech doesn't work right on the xtrrom5.0. No problems on 2.2 roms.
