    I rooted my Metro Ascend with Gingerbreak, but that doesn't allow me to remove some of the Apps that came with the phone. It looks like I need to NAND unlock it. I am not programming savy, and I have searched different forums, haven't acomplished it yet. Can somebody help please?

    I can't find anything on unlocking the nand protection either. Although I did see an app in the market that says it can freeze apps on devices that are still nand locked. Its called bloat freezer its one dollar. I don't know if it will work but its worth a shot. Usually better to freeze apps than to remove them.

    Titanium Backup does it as well...

    I did not know it would since the nand lock prevents rewriting to the phone system. I just suggested this one since its 5-6$ cheaper so if it doesn't work the op is out as much and it specifically mentioned freezing apps on nand lock phones. But good to know I use titanium backup with my X.

    Once the phone is rooted u need to download superuser and titanium backup in order to fully override the permissions of the phone.

    You don't need Titanium Backup to override anything...it has nothing to do with rooting your phone. It just backs up apps and app data

    Titanium backup allows the user to REMOVE bloatware ( stock apps) from the phone it's not just for backing up data.

    Correct, but you said 'fully override the permissions of the phone' which is not correct

    No, that is correct. In order to fully override the permissions of the phone regarding moving bloatware he/she needs both Superuser and Titanium back-up.

    No you don't need titanium backup. You can use many other apps to get rid of bloatware, ie; root explorer. Once you have rooted you already overrode the permissions of the phone.
