    Maybe a little bit of battery but mainly alot of junk that takes Up precious space for you the user to use instead of the crap ware the service provider want that you can't normally touch really and it might give the phone more resources to use for what ever you are running in the background instead of the phone to wait for other crap to not be used the phone will eliminate the things that you are not running for a long time and make the phone snappy

    Colestein your right on the z root part never really used the freeze feature and there isn't really a scary thing when using the z4root unless you take off the system apps that your phone needs thats why you should deff read up on which you should and which you shouldn't take and freeze I'm not sure but deleting them I know isn't good but for the most part its safe just do the reading first

    Enraged medic you should just download the file on your phone once you get it there get a app the let's you see your files like astrology file manager and go to where you put the file it should say apk file then click that and hit package installer click ok to install you might not have went to your settings app manager and click install unknown apps it might be good to do that before anything once that's all done you need to get the titanium back up once in there you could long press the app or click it and choose either freeze or delete you might not know what apps to not delete so read the post on what you can and can't and you should be good if the file problem persists then change the file look a Googleing download z4root apk and file the actual apk file not exe or anything else it should only say apk then transfer the file to you phone pc or just download from your browser hope that helps

    I think i'm finally starting to understand this stuff, but if some one would attempt to answer these for me i'd be greatful.

    Thanks
    ps- please be kind on the tech words, think idiots guide to.....

    What is a NAND backup? guessing backing up the system on a computer?

    Accessing the system this way can you open wireless/USB tethering?

    What do you do to improve battery life? currently i get 8 hrs very little use, 6 hrs moderate use, 3-4 hrs heavy use.

    What apps should not be removed? i'm wanting to remove the junk, nascar, nova, amazon mp3/kindle, blockbuster, stocks, basically the stuff i have no interest in, and don't seem to be operating system apps.

    You cannot do a nand back up because you a not fully rooted, look to the rooting guides for info on that

    Yes

    Removing the bloat wont help your battery that much. To do that fully root it, install a custom rom and underclock while the screen is off.

    What apps should not be removed? i'm wanting to remove the junk, nascar, nova, amazon mp3/kindle, blockbuster, stocks, basically the stuff i have no interest in, and don't seem to be operating system apps.

    You can remove all those you listed, and alot more. If youre gun shy about deleting something, just ask on this thread and ill yay or nay it

    Okay, so I guess I will try to uninstall the z4root and then re-install it and see if it runs correctly that way?!!

    I attached the correct Z4 root apk on the second post of this thread. Try that one.

    Its nand locked, and froyo is not compatible with simple root. Go to the sticky about rooting.

    So I have z4 downloaded as wells titanium backup. Z4 root says debugging has to be disabled but I can't find it on my phone. Is this only by hooking up to a computer or am I missing something. Thanks

    Yes. It should.

    Amazon and Gtalk are deletable. If you are having trouble, buy root explorer from the market for 1$ Then go to System > apps, mount as read write and delete what you wish, reboot and its gone.

    i got it figured out, not that difficult just time consuming, one more question.

    Use root explorer, its better.

    using z4root, and titanium backup (i guess) how do i enable the wireless/usb tethering?
    To tether while temp rooted, download wireless tether from the market, and use it. OR go to the free wireless tethering sticky and download it from there.

    I managed to get z4root on my phone but the problem is, I have a newer EVO with a build date of 10/19/2010 and it unfortunately has the 2.10 hboot so it won't temporarily root, let alone root at all. I just went for the full root and tried to do it with unrEVOked3 and yeah, it got stuck at "waiting for root" phase. I did some homework in the forums and yes, I know there's a work-around but seriously, I'm NOT going to jump through fire hoops and crunch all this code and flash all these zip files because I know I'll just F*$K up my phone. I've had it for a week and I think I can either wait for Gingerbread or wait for unrEVOked or someone else to fix their root programs to make it easy on us noobs

    Z4 root does work no matter what your hboot, for temp root.

    Use the z4 root I've attached on the second post.

    And I know for a fact amazon and gtalk are in there and removable. What is it saying when you try to delete?

    Hey I already broke my first evo the second day of having it I had did the update and didn't realize what I had done then I tried to do all the reading in the world but I took a shoot at one and bombed my phone with a ruu and returned it but great guy from these forums helped me out like crazy and guide my to this root method and it dose it for you I'm telling you if you hadn't tried it it is really really easy trust me I was not a noobie but I figured out the hard way when it comes to evos

    With titanium it says that they are deleted but when it reboots they are back everytime. When I use root explorer amazon is nowhere to be found and gtalk says its deleting but also comes back everytime after reboot. I think I am doing it right because I was able to delete all the other programs I wanted to. Just not those two
