    Default default app "disable" vs titanium backup freezing?

    what's the difference between freezing an app with titanium backup versus disabling it via the apps option in the default JB settings?

    they both seem the same to me, care to explain? i couldn't find anything about the differences on google

    Pre 4.0 you couldn't freeze apps in android, you needed a third party program like Titanium. From 4.0 onwards you can do it without installing anything else, although Titanium has many other benefits.

    I think disabling only lasts until a reboot, I could be wrong but I do not think it survives a reboot. Freezing stays until you unfreeze. You can also back up the app to you SD card and uninstall (not delete) incase you want to put the apps back on when you sell or send in for warranty.

    I think it's the other way around. I used to disable the Google search bar before in my gnex and even after rebooting it stays disabled. Freezing though I'm not sure but when I unfreeze something before after a reboot it I need to do it again. I don't know though if tb is already updated that even a reboot won't change the status of the app that was touched

    Ok. I was not sure. I always back up to SD card then uninstall.

    From GB to JB, TB freezes were kept after a reboot, in my case. That includes freezing > rebooting and defrosting > rebooting.
