Hello all, I am curious as to what I can do to fix this issue. I am running 2.1 on Sprint HTC Hero. several applications are constantly running in the backround even though I have killed the apps with task killers. Most of these are applications are installed by Sprint, and I have no need/use for them; like NFL, Stocks, Sprint TV, etc. Also footprints constantly runs even after being killed. How do I get these to stop for good???? Or delete them if possible? Is this something that can only be done after rooting the phone, or is there another way. If rooting is the only way, is there a root for the 2.1 Hero? I know that there was one for the 1.5, but 2.1 changed how things work I guess. Not sure. Thanks!
