not so sure about disabling...but you can uninstall system apps with titanium backup...of course you'll need root access. This doesn't necessarily have to be a custom ROM feature. Just remember to becareful what sys apps you are deleting.

also, try to hit up Swype's online site...and sign up for their beta (if its still open) You'll be able to get their swype installer...which basically lets you download a working Swype keyboard onto your phone whenever. This is handy especially if you change ROMs like underwear!!!

Be really useful if someone would compile a list of Stock ROM apps that are safe to remove, or at least explain the dependancies. I have removed many of the obvious. I just have been careful.

Even apps that are required, I.e. GMail, I would rather remove and install a downloaded version.

Can someone tell me where I put images that I want to use as backgrounds/wallpaper? Much appreciated.
I created a folder in the Media folder, but I wasn't able to find where the default images are stored.

Re: Evo Tips, Tricks and anything I find useful. Will update. Updated 7/22/10

I am so sorry to bother you...I jsut got a new EVO....I sucessfully rooted the previous one....however I am having problems with the new on...put in my old SD card...even tried the NEW one....and am stuck on recovery mode....Help please....

I'm attempting to root my phone using a windows 7... I installed the drivers as needed, set up the phone as required and started unrevoked 3. I selected the hboot usb as required by the process, and unrevoked ran until the point that the phone reboots to the clockworkmod recovery screen. my phone is sitting on the screen with the following options:

-reboot system now
-apply sdcard:update.zip
-wipe data/factory reset
-wipe cache partition
-install zip from sdcard
-nandroid
-partitions menu
-advanced
-+++++Go Back+++++

i was stuck in it earlier and somehow got out...I know there is always an answer....it's late and im frustrated....sorry for posting on this tread....but i can't seem to find a thread that is similar to mine.....I have wiped, cash, data...facotry reset.....everytime I restart my EVO...back to the same recovery mode...
thanks for any help!!!

If you are rooted you can download the MSL reader off the market. Run it and that will give you your MSL

thanks for any help!!!

On Evo's with 2.3.3 you need to use the Revolutionary.io method of rooting. I have a walk through posted on the main page if you need more help.
