Default [Q] Any limitations as to what can become a system app?

With all the extra room on the system partition, I was thinking about making certain programs a system app, to free up the rest of the phone. Anyone know of any app, in general, that may become a problem when converted to a system app?

fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

None. But keep the stock launcher as sys & any new launchers as data. So a safeboot can save you. Any apps added as sys cannot be disabled by safeboot either.

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7.

Cool, sweet tip! Only solid-trusted apps would get the special treatment, of course!
