Startup Auditor

Hello all! Being a former WinMo user, I have the habit of worrying about programs running in the background and what not. I use Advanced TasKiller to get rid of the programs in the background. I am planning to use Startup Auditor to disable a lot of programs from starting up, but I am confused as to which ones I can disable. Can anyone tell me what programs are necessary to run android? For example, com.samsung.brightness - what does this do and is it necessary for Android to run?

The reason I ask is because my phone will be extremely laggy until all the programs are loaded. Also, my I want to be able to maximize battery life.

Is there also a Reclaim Ram type program to free up the Ram?

Thanks!

Re: Startup Auditor

Startup Auditor will only allow you to change apps that have been installed, not apps that come with the phone (i.e. Voice Control, etc). Because of this, I installed it, tried it, and then uninstalled it.

Re: Startup Auditor

i too came from winmo to this phone and had the same issues when i first started using it. the battery life is terrible on mine cuz im running the updated cl14 system/modem with use wireless networks on and latitude which kill it cuz of a bug.

i looked into getting startup auditor but wasn't sure it was the best route. the best solution, to work for me, is removing the stock apps which i will never use. although i back them up to my sdcard and can install them whenever needed, this at least prevents them from auto loading and auto reloading which frees up resources on my android.

the process requires the phone to be rooted, a custom kernel was the easiest way for me and there is a guide which worked great for me here.
