    I'm running SkyRaider 2.5.2 and I hate seeing Backup Assistant in my background apps in System Panel. Would it break anything if I did this....

    mv /system/app/VzWBAService.apk /system/app.disabled and
    mv /system/app/VzWBAClient.apk /system/app.disabled

    Did you go to the /system/app and delete the files I stated in the first post?

    Exactly those same files. I made a backup first just to be on the safe side. I deleted the files 2 days ago and have not run into any problems. Under settings then accounts and sync it no longer shows backup assistant as an option.
