    I recently rooted my Evo. I installed Titanium Backup and tried uninstalling Wallet, TuneIn Radio, and Sprint Music Plus. But after it finishes uninstalling, my phone restarts and they are back. It only removes the updates, not the app. I never had this problem with my first gen Evo. I've attached a picture. It shows those app with a blue/purple background. Any thoughts?

    How can I find out if I have s-off. I ran the rum runner and it seemed to work, just have no way of checking.

    Did the button say "Uninstall" or "Uninstall Updates"?

    If the latter, uninstall the updates, then uninstall the app.

    It says uninstall. I uninstall it and it reboots. I go back into TB and uninstall it again and the icon is gone from the app draw, but did not reboot. I reboot and the icon is back and its saying there is an update. Is the stock ROM setup to reinstall these types of apps?

    To tell if you have S-off, you'll need to boot to the bootloader, also called the hboot screen.

    Power the phone completely down. Hold volume down, then press and hold the power button while still holding volume down button. Hold both buttons down for a few seconds. Continue to hold volume down then let go of the power button.
    A white screen should appear with a bunch of text at the top, and a picture of Andy the android riding a skateboard on the bottom. This is the hboot screen. At the top, I believe it's the second line of text, it will show ship S-on, or ship S-off. That is your security flag. If it shows S-off it worked, if it shows S-on it didn't.

    As long as you are unlocked with su installed(flashed or in a custom Rom), tb should work.

    S-off is not needed.......just saying.
