For as long as I've been a member here, I don't think I've ever started two threads in one day in a Dev section that I was so unsure belonged in the dev section... so Mods, please forgive if this is in the wrong place.

I thought it would be helpful to get a running list of apps that can be frozen with Titanium that won't cause any FC's or other problems. I'm a bit extreme with this, I think, compared to most... I tend to freeze (or remove) a LOT of stuff.... but so far I haven't caused any problems. Here is my list:

Amazon Kindle
Backup Assistant
Car Panel
Connected Media
Facebook Chat Widget
Facebook for HTC Sense
Fb Chat
Friend Stream (there are two of these with different versions on my Rez)
Friend Stream Widget
Home screen tips
Mobile Hotspot
Mobile IM
Mobile Instant Messaging
Music Enhancer
Music Widget
News Widget
NFL Mobile
Stock Widget
Stocks (There are two of these as well)
Task Manager
Task Widget
Tethering Guard (WTF IS THIS????? A way for them to keep us from free tethering??)
Tips for Home
Trends Widget
Twitter Widget
Usage Monitor
Vcast Media Manager
Vcast Music
Vcast Videos
VZ Navigator
Watch Widget

So far, so good. And I've little doubt that much more can be removed... on my Dinc, I always ran a Sense ROM, but I'd run them REALLY lean. I will be experimenting more with what can be removed and will update the list as I do...

EDIT: Froze quite a few more apps, still no FC's or other issues, here are the additional ones...

App Sharing
Archive Viewing
Data Dashboard (this is a widget)
Data Roaming (this is a widget)
Field Trial
Hot Pursuit
HTC Report Agent
Jetcet Print
Jetcet Print Resources
Let's Golf 2
My Verizon Mobile
Power Dashboard (this is a widget)
Profile Widget (this is a widget)
Ringtone Trimmer
Ringtone Widget (this is a widget)
Screen Brightness (this is a widget)
Screen Timeout (this is a widget)
Tell HTC

Do these apps re-install after a reboot like others are reporting with temp root or does "freezing" have better results than deleting?

Freezing them sticks after reboots. It is almost as good as removing them.

But OP, you really went to town on the freezing.

hahah I said in the first post, I freeze a LOT of stuff. You can freeze as few or as many of those apps as you need, I just wanted to guinea pig it and see what would crash, so far no issues.

As mentioned above, freezing DOES stick after a reboot. However, unlike freezing on a fully rooted device, freezing here doesn't remove the apps' market links, and doesnt remove them from the apps list in settings. It DOES remove them from the app drawer and keep them from running, which is what matters

I just tried to freeze apps with "Bloat Freezer Free" and most of the apps came back after a reboot. Is everyone else using Titanium? Does it "freeze" apps differently?

I've only ever used Titanium to freeze apps but you need the pro version. WELL worth the money, this app has proven very useful.
