Default [Guide] Freezing Moto X Bloat with Titanium Backup [Final list for 4.4.2]

Disclaimer: Use your own discretion. I am not responsible if you break your phone. Feel free to suggest more and I will add them to the list after I test it!

I have tested the following settings for 5 days with no adverse effects to Active Notifications, Touchless Controls, Google now and the standard phone features like calls and sms. If you encounter any issues please try to identify which service is causing it and I will modify the description of said service to reflect that. My battery life is still pretty good as shown all the way below so no issues there either.

Legend:
Lime = No issues or known side effects, tested stable
Sea Green = Caution, some side effects [which I list for each] but no impact on stability
Red = Breaks functionality for certain phone features [which I list for each] I don't recommend freezing these
Orange = Just Google apps
Code:
Final list for 4.4.2 official: 
1. Adam 4.4.2-23 [No idea what this does, no impact to stability/functionality for my use]
2. Android Live Wallpaper 4.4.2-23 [Disables live wallpapers, I would imagine]

I personally don't use Motorola Connect (I have in the past) so if the above config gives you any trouble with Motorola software aside from Active Notifications and/or touchless controls please help me troubleshoot and let me know which service is giving the issue so that I can correct this list.

How could the device be any more snappier? Already is for me without freezing any of these.

You probably don't notice micro lags and/or stutter like most android users. Given, stock config on Moto X is still very smooth, but not perfect. Besides why would anyone want a whole bunch of crap they will never use taking up resources?

That's okay, I'm not selling anything ^_^ just reporting my experiences with freezing crap that I have zero use for.
But, ask yourself: if all that crapware was not detrimental in any way shape or form how do you explain that the snappiest ROM's out there are extremely debloated and quite minimal? i.e SlimROM, AOKP, CM10 etc. Food for thought.

Also, do you mind removing the quote? It makes it annoying to scroll through the whole thing, twice.

I was trying to get my avatar to show up on hangouts and initially thought it didnt show because I disabled avatar. But I ended up going to People and adding myself with my avatar and that fixed it. Disabling avatar shouldn't impact that, feel free to disable it. I'm actually not sure what it does, but it never caused any issues.

As for backup, I just forgot to add it to the list. I'll update it shortly (at work atm).

I looked around but couldn't find anything... has anyone put together a debloat list of files? I don't mean to freeze, but to actually delete? I'd like to fully debloat the crap I don't want, but would like to know which files I can't touch.
