    Default Is there a way to disable Backup Assistant Plus?

    First off... it's been a week and I absolutely love the Moto X. This is probably the best Android phone ever. The radio and battery are a huge improvement over the Galaxy Nexus. Plus, it's just so snappy.

    Anyway... Is there a way to disable Backup Assistant Plus and Backup Assistant? I've cleared the cache and data but disable is greyed out. I was able to successfully disable Sync Service, but those two won't disable. I don't have that feature on my account.

    Unless you root the phone, there is unfortunately no way to disable Backup Assistant Plus. It's one of those annoying Verizon bloatware apps that we're stuck with.

    I recommend one of the mellower earlier versions of root. You don't need to pwn your moto to achieve this. And unroot is 1 click away and it didn't change the qe stats

    Well first, the service or the app? You can stop the service on Verizons website, I sure did. But for the app you will need root, I recommend No Bloatware Free (or something along the lines) deleted a lot of bloatware, gone in a folder, off my device.

    I mentioned above that I don't have the feature (service) on my account.
