    The MOG and slingbox, came with the last Verizon Update, so those were there before you rooted.

    There is an app called Titanium Backup that you can get from the market. Well worth the money to pay.

    Use Titanium and "freeze" the apps that you can't uninstall conventionally. Remember you want to FREEZE the apps not delete them, as I had to learn the hard way.....LOL

    I would just start by looking in the app drawer and making note of the apps you don't want then start with those. The rest you can play with.

    We you freeze and app, it doesn't disappear until after you reboot your phone

    Get the titanium backup pro. Its worth every penny plus some! Install it before you root. I also installed dropbox for back up purposes as Titanium syncs with it. I also installed busybox as titanium recommends it. Follow the instructions at the begining of this thread just using this root. It has helped me alot. Im kind of a newbie rooter.

    Follow the basic instructions of rooting. Set your usb connect to charge only, turn on debugging mode.

    Its been running fantastic for me!
    OK, so I installed Titanium Backup and it said phone not rooted. It was my plan to backup the phone before I started to screw around with it. Did I dl the wrong version, or do I have to root the phone before I can back it up? Or was there a way to just continue? I stopped because I didn't want to take any chances. Thanks.

    You have to be rooted first to run tibu. Go ahead and root, you can't screw anything up.

    Agreed, not sure the point of installing prior to rooting. There are other Apps in the Market that you can use to backup SMS messages if that's a concern.

    But if done correctly, the root should not cause any data loss.

    I'm getting ready to root my first phone, because I'd really like to get the newest version of swype.

    The first instruction in this thread is 1. Download and install Motorola Drivers on your PC Download Here. But, when I do that, and go to run the file, I get the error "This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor".

    I'm fairly naive about this stuff, so could someone help me figure out what's going on?

    Thanks

    The driver are meant for a 64bit machine. Do a Google search for Motorola drivers. Or simply plug your phone into you computer and see I'd the drivers might already be loaded.

    No need to go thru all that yall. Copinli posted in another thread this link:

    http://vulnfactory.org/public/motofail_windows.zip

    This WILL root the .902 update even if you were not rooted before. It's quick & easy peasy!!!

    Just have TB installed & ready then use this link to root .902!!!

    And then you can freeze or get rid of all this new bloat they put in.

    This took less than 5 minutes to install on my bionic.
    Running .902 and this worked for me. Got SU App and ready to start freezing some bloatware in the morning....Thanks.

    This may have been answered but really dont feel like looking through this whole forum so sorry if it was said
    1. If i freeze all the social stuff will that affect any of the apps i would use (messages Facebook app ect.)
    2. if someone could either link or just type what the main like stock apps that just kill your battery i could care less if they took up the storage but i do care about battery so if anyone could just write the apps to freeze to save battery life.
    Thanks

    I am trying to root my Bionic and in following the instructions I am trying to install the Motorola drivers (Ver 5.2.0) and I get a message that can not install because a newer version of the product is already installed. When I look at my installed programs (Win 7 64 bit) I see that I have MotoHelper 2.1.32 Driver 5.4.0 installed.

    Please advise on how I should proceed.

    Does anyone have this same problem, any suggestions? I could uninstall Motorola drivers ver. 5.4 and then install 5.2 but do not know if that is a good solution.

    Please advise suggestions

    Neil, did you try just plugging your phone into your computer? If you have the drivers installed already, then you should be able to move to the next step.

    Yes, I had it plugged in. I believe I followed the instructions very carefully. When I tried installing the drivers from the root instructions it said that I had more up to date drivers and therefore would not install the "old drivers". I then tried using the root program and it finds the phone, reboots the phone, modifying local.prop, then reboots phone, then adding su, busybox, and superuser.apk then it fails and get message Error: adb could not be granted root access via local.prop methos
