[Q] Preferred way to "freeze" without using TiBackup?
Yes, I'm aware that TiBackup has the ability to "freeze" apps on an su-enabled phone. This question is what is the preferred method of disabling the running of an installed app on a temp-rooted (but not su-enabled) phone.
I've seen that the PackageManager can be envoked to enable/disable installed apps:
- pm enable PACKAGE_OR_COMPONENT
- pm disable PACKAGE_OR_COMPONENT
as well as some posts that rename the .apk to .apk.bck or the like.
Are there any downsides to using pm for this?
