Titanium Backup now supports remove applications from NAND/eMMC locked system partitions via my recovery exploit! :)

It's included in the free version from the Android Market, if you like it please consider supporting the paid version. :) If you really like it, please consider signing up to a MoDaCo Ad Free or MoDaCo Plus account too (MoDaCo Plus includes a Titanium Backup Pro license!)

I posted some pics of the process in action on my G2 below! :(

Cool, well done guys :-)

Would be great if it could also do a 'disable' (non perm but survives reboot) using the method you posted earlier Paul?

You can freeze the system app in TitaniumBackup, it should do the job :-)

If you do this (and I did), you risk not being able to apply the next OTA.

I know. It seems like a terrible idea to add this to a program... When it could endanger the updatability of anyone who uses it.

what is different between

uninstall an app (press shortly the app and select uninstall)

and remove via recovery exploit (press long on the app)

??

i have the desire hd with cyanogenmod and can select both on every app

Press 'Backup / Restore' to list apps. Press 'Problems' to get busybox first. Press hold the app to pop up the option.

Paul, a question: when I force remove an app, it stays in the list (in the end, grey, strikethrough). Does this mean it is now also physically removed? If not, what else should I do?

Thanks a million.

Paul,

Your post above says "(MoDaCo Plus includes a Titanium Backup Pro license!)"

I have a MoDaCo Plus license and download an online bake for the LG Optimus 2x, which works well and I notice the version of Titanium backup is the Free version.

Where do I find the Titanium Backup Pro license to change to the full version ? I'm sure its around somewhere, and I'm probably missing the obvious, but I can't find any license or any info on how to obtain it.

Thanks

Neil

Rooted my LG Optimus ONE

Installed Titanium Backup * root

Tried to uninstall some system apps (see: youtube) and the recovery exploit mode was the only available, so i said yes.

My phone rebooted and FORMATTED himself.

Now i have just a stock phone, my ALL apps are GONE and my preferences too.

So what? :(

After deleting an app using this option, my phone (Xiaomi Mi3 Kitkat 4.4.4) is stuck in recovery mode n can't boot into fastboot or system! What should I do now? Or, how to recover my phone?
