    When I flash, the first things I throw on are Root Explorer and Titanium Backup, both of which require root.

    +1 for Titanium backup! I dont mind ads as long as their unobtrusive. People need to earn.

    That is why I buy so many apps. If a dev doesn't want to offer a paid version without ads I refuse to have ads though. Any apps that I use that has a paid version, I buy it.

    Is there a way to keep apps from starting until needed, such as facebook, or winamp, and other non-system apps?

    Try “Autorun Manager” app from android market, It is a free app. I advice you to stick to “Basic” mode.

    I tried Gemini App Manager which also does that (and gets better reviews). But decided why add an app that runs 24/7 to kill a few apps? I use Go Launcher which has a nice manual app killer. I lock most of the "important" apps, but I kill anything else that that starts up that I NEVER use... at least twice a day. Probably not saving a thing, but apps should not start that you don't use! OK, talked myself into trying Autorun Manager.

    Is there a similar type of software that is free that allows apps from restarting?
