    I have 596 Deodexed running and noticed 2 things.

    When I reboot my phone, I get a notification that Droid 2 bootstrap has been granted root access. No biggie there I guess. But is that normal?

    Also, I have an app called superuser, just part of deodexed? I noticed there's no option to uninstall it.

    Sounds like you are rooted. The SU app is what you get when you root.

    Yeah I'm rooted no doubt, just never saw that before.

    I'm itching to uninstall a few things, in particular the blockbuster app(hate blockbusted). I'm going to check that list for things to uninstall.

    Actually I just checked, how do I uninstall the blockbuster app, there's no option anywhere within manage apps after clicking on it. Force close/move to sd/all option are faded.

    Never mind, it's amazing what the search function on a forum does.

    so what are you going to do if you need to put them back? This is why freeze is a better option.

    If someone needed to get the apps back could they not just reflash the .596 file? Or would that not do the trick?

    You could re flash. Or you could find the apk files you need and reinstall them. But as Trophy said, don't uninstall anything, freeze apps with Titanium backup. Now, because you uninstalled apps, should anything go wrong with your phone you're gonna have to go around your a$$ to get to your elbow. ( also know as SBF'ing and starting over).

    Yeah as long as I can go back to stock with sbf I'm fine. I have no reservations about SBFing, aside from re-arranging a few widgets, almost all of my relevant data is on my sdcard, which isn't much.

    the quickest way would definitely be to drop the .apks on your sdcard and not install them, if you don't want to use tibu. This way, when you need them and can't remember which apps you deleted they are right there on your sdcard waiting to be reinstalled. There is no need to put yourself through a full sbf just to get back blockbuster and cityid to except any kind of update.

    im gonna give another vote for DO NOT uninstall bloat...it just leads to problems 6 months down the line when its "The update won't install...i've got no clue why...HELP!"

    if you're dead set on uninstalling...then make a backup of the app in Titanium first so it can be restored with the click of a button...
