Question [Q] Titanium Backup Pro can't uninstall stock apps

Hi,
I recently updated my Hercules T989 to Jellybean 4.1.2 via Kies. When I was on ICS, I could easily uninstall the t-mobile stock apps(or any other stock apps) using Titanium Backup Pro. But after upgrading to JB 4.1.2, I cant uninstall a single stock app. I tried updating Titanium backup pro from 4.1 to 4.5.6 but its still the same. It can freeze the apps but one app: 't-mobile accounts' unfreezes itself. I dont know how it happens. By the way, the device is rooted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I checked. The chuck Norris mode is on. I froze all the stock Bloatware using titanium backup. But this one app: 'T-mobile My Accounts' unfreezes itself. Still can't find any help, anywhere.

Did u do it in jellybean 4.1.2? As I said earlier, I could successfully uninstall/freeze all those stock apps using TB earlier when my phone was on ICS. This problem arose after I upgraded my firmware.

Are you sure Titanium Backup has root permissions? Check your Superuser app log and make sure they're being granted. You need root access for Titanium Backup to be able to remove/freeze system apps (like the built-in stuff).
