    you can change the extension from apk to .bak
    or download titanium backup and it will give you the option to freeze the app.

    If you're planning to run a ROM or theme the heck out of your phone you can just rename it to .bak with root explorer. If you plan to stay relatively stock I recommend the Ti Backup option since it will make any official updates easier, due to the Ti backup changes being easier to undo.

    I've done both and they work just as well.
