When freezing apps using Titanium Backup Pro, do I have to reboot for the freeze to take effect? (e.g. not be started anymore, even if applicaple Intent is fired off?)
Does it depend on whether the app is a system one or not?
If it matters, environment is Droid X (Stock 2.2 Froyo, rooted), latest Market version of TBPro.
I tried checking on TB Wiki and found zero reference to rebooting or not as far as freezing functionality.
Here's a specific example: consider the following sequence:
"GPS location changed" intent fires off.
A mapping application "MyGMaps" which is registered for this intent is started to handle it
I kill that application's process(es) - all of them - via Advanced Task Killer
I freeze "MyGMaps" via Titanium Backup Pro
At this point, "MyGMaps" process is NOT running
"GPS location changed" intent fires off again
What happens here? Will "MyGMaps" be started again due to the intent in #6, despite the fact that it's "Frozen"?
My understanding is that, once I reboot the phone after freezing, the app will no longer start at all. But what happens in step #7, right after the freeze but without a reboot?
