    Titanium Backup is great. Problem is, after uninstalling all the bloatware, some AT&T icons are still in my app drawer. Solution?

      I know this is late, but maybe you are following this via eamil.

      Titanium Backup won’t uninstall some of the AT&T bloatware, I also tried it with es file explorer and it didn’t work either. “Root Uninstaller” actually uninstalled those apps TB and ES couldn’t.
