    I rooted my phone with SuperOneClick. It said it was successful so I went and downloaded Titanium Backup and BusyBox. The superuser permissions worked, and everything looks like it's supposed to. When I go to the apps list in TB and delete something, it says it was uninstalled and everything looks like it's working. Then when I get out of Titanium Backup, my phone memory doesn't go up, and the app is still in the app drawer. When I did all of this same stuff on my Ally with 2.1, it all worked like it was supposed to. Am I doing something wrong?

    Wipe the Dalvik cache and reboot.

    What is the most simple, dumbed down way of clearing the Dalvik cache?

    Ok, I cleared the Dalvik cache and it freed up a bunch of memory. Now, when I try to delete the apps, they are still there. It's only the ones that say "updated" next to them.

    Try this app. It can remove or freeze(recommended) stock apps. Have you tried flashing Velocity? It is the best and fastest ROM for the LG Ally, it even removes the bloatware :)
