    I have a question...Did it give you 3g speeds? Now if you are asking if you can delete gingerbreak.apk and root explorer.apk then yes you can I would back em up on ur pc though but any APK file can be deleted after installing the app. you can also delete any .zip off the sd card as well (rom.zip, recovery.zip etc...) but again I would back them up on ur pc. I like that you are rooted and was able to get bloatware removed and this is your first post, shows you spent alot of time reading and such, so im glad I could help.

    Welcome! The gingerbreak can be un-installed, but don't get rid of the apk. It could come in handy again someday. Don't delete, or even un-install root explorer. It is very handy for navigating your file system.

    thanks yes i spend numerous time reading everybody did their different so it was kind of confusing at first because just as you read then the next post says new and improved way of doing it yes i see the 3g logo from time to time as i move around but haven't had a chance to use it also what is a good bar code scanner to use??also is the a way to improve the signal bar as mine at times is in the 1 to 2 bars and also would that be the cause as to when talking on the phone at times you hear yourself echo??

    As det said the actual .apk you downloaded can be deleted, or better backed up on your computer for a rainy day. And like alfick said dont uninstall it. well the gingerbreak you can uninstall but root explorer you want to keep installed on your phone.
    by the way 1iwilly did you come over from hofo.

    I have one called barcode scanner. There is also a good app called camscanner. This one will scan and turn the scan into a pdf.
