    I put the htclockscreen.apk and .odex on my SD card to get the vanilla lockscreen but now when I put the files back in the system\app folder it wont let me reinstall the HTC lockscreen. I changed the permissions and I even cleared the data for sense in manage applications. Am I missing some simple step?

    No, I would just create a folder on your SD card called "Bloatware" or something like that and then move them over.
    Cory... using Super Manager, You cant just select the apps and then move them, after you select them all you need to "cut" and then "paste" them into the created folder... At least that is how I had to do it... i was unable to just select and move them using the clipboard button.. am I doing something wrong? Also, I first tried with the Blockbuster app, but it is still in my app drawer... I really want the bloat off my phone... should I just delete it?

    Thanks for your help, Cory....I removed most of the apps in your "safe to remove" list using your procedure. Weird that I relocated all of them to a separate folder as you suggested..even VZ Navigator...but for some reason that particular app remains as a working app...any ideas what might be going on?

    Thanks!

    I rooted my TBolt earlier this week and now I just followed your instructions about moving the bloat apps to my sdcard. All went well except for the part where I couldn't leave well enough alone. So I read further about how to put back apps and resetting the permissions. I tried it with Slacker and it seemed to worked but I couldn't see it in the app list. So I read further and found your suggestion to clear the data of the HTC Sense app. My thinking was that I had to do that in order to get Slacker to appear again. WRONG!

    Well I cleared the HTC Sense data and now all I get after many battery removals, reboots, etc. is the following after I unlock the screen.

    "Loading...
    It may take several minutes to complete, please wait."

    It's been doing this for an hour and I don;t know what to do.

    The phone seems to be functioning because I can receive calls and msgs. But I cannot launch anything.

    Any advice....?

    THanks in advance...
    KO
    I am having this exact problem now, but mine has been going on for days... i have not been lucky and nothing has updated for me.. I thought of trying to unroot it, but i can't even access debug to do this.. my phone is just stuck in this loading phase, if anyone has any advice i would appreciate it thank you.

    I have tried the recovery process, and even restoring factory defaults, but of course that doesnt work when it is rooted...

    Again Thanks for the info with get rid of or moving the bloatware…my only issue is that the Voice Mail app Icon is still in All apps draw…it's not in the apps folder either. when you press the icon it opens the Messages app.

    Anyone have any ideas on this…? should I just move the Messages app also…? I'm using GO SMS Pro as my messaging app so there's no need to use the other…?

    So I rooted my phone and was removing items. I cleared the sense cache and now it just says "Loading.... It may take several minutes to complete, please wait."

    I mounted the system partition and used adb to move bloatware to a new directory called app.disabled.

    Here is what i removed, does anyone spot an obvious cause?

    I am also having trouble removing VVM from the app drawer. I attached a screenshot of a search for VVM via root explorer.

    Before I followed your steps I uninstall the Bloatware using Titanium backup but then the icons are still there in the apps and when I follow your steps and look into the folders I don't see the bloatware apps there. But at the same time the icons are still there in my app page. When I click the app it says "The linked program is no longer installed on your phone"

    Any other way I can get rid of or do you know a way that I can remove the icons.

    G'Day to you all... I've done a few searches on this subject so if it has been answered, please direct me to the appropriate location.

    I've removed "a lot" of files from the original ROM to make my life on this phone much more pleasant. Unfurtunately, I haven't removed all of the Widgets I'd like to remove as I get errors in my Widget Listings.

    So, the question is: Is there a file I can edit that will allow me to remove the records from the Widget Listings so I can remove the widgets and not have the errors in the various listing areas?

    (Does that make sense)?

    Thank you,
    ~ David

    If anyone wants to know.. This guide works for the Bionic.

    I did have some issues with the DLNA.apk, however. After you add .old to it, it would freeze and say you have to force close it. You would not be able to force close it unless you remove the battery and remove the .old from the DLNA.apk. Anyone else have any similar issues?

    Hello,
    Accidentally deleted Friendstream.apk/odex. No problems so far even after multiple reboots. I don't use any social media apps. Anything I need to worry about?

    So, what about photos that get moved to the SD card after root by accident (not sure how it happened)? Can they be moved back? I know they are there as I am able to view thumbnails...

    Thanks!

    You need to get a file explorer that allows you to change permissions on the system partition...once you then mount it as read/write it will let you do what you want...I recommend and use Root file explorer from the market.
    It does cost some money but it is worth it.
