Default What you can and cannot remove

On my metro:

Metro web
Pocket express
Virtual card
Mobile I'm
Google skymap

Crap! I just deleted a bunch of data for things i didn't have app back ups for and titbu refreshed and deleted my list o stuff!
Will complete after i find a screen shot it list of all things shown by titbu on a metro phone.
I cannot delete Uno nor can I delete BubbleBash!

Lovely for all of you that just state, "worked for me! I deleted this and that!"

I am only a user of Android for about a year now and a Linux user for about a year and a half. I am a programmer, but hardware is very different. New hardware, new this, new that... it is hard to keep up if you don't have tons of free time.

Checklist I have:
-Rooted my phone? Don't ask me how or where, but I downloaded some software to my PC that some genius gave to all of us and rooted my phone and I even installed an app to check if it was rooted. LOL! Then this Android Terminal app was installed that su seemed to work so I am pretty sure like pure gold 99.99999% I am rooted. Thats 5 nines, not 4! If you have ever purched gold bullion you will get that one.
-I am indeed a Rooted user or SuperUser on my phone now.
-I tried z4Root or whatever it's called... nada... reinstalled? Not on the AppStore anymore. Didn't work anyway.
-Tried finding my way to these apps via USB and Linux (Kubuntu) using terminal commands and nada!
-Installed an Android Terminal to my Androind phone. This seemed like the only way to really find these apps.
-Huawei Ascend ii by the way is my mobile device.
-Titanium blah blah.. seemed pretty useless
-ES File Explorer - nada - unable to uninstall Uno nor BubblBash
-Tried the Android Terminal and did all the different methods I could find to mount and remount with rw.. i.e. (e.g. if you wish - just as BC v. BCE) ---
$ su (enter)
# mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system (enter)
# rm BubbleBash.apk
or # rm -r BubbleBash.apk
same problem ("read only file.. can't do... blah blah blah")
-Still when rm -r BubbleBash.apk (in the /cust/cricket/us/app dir.) read only cannot unistall / fail etc message.

So I am at my wits end trying to do this "oh so easy" uninstall with Root SuperUser crap!

So is this Huawei Ascend ii just a special device that has no "work arounds"? Work around with no description as it were...

Also keep in mind all of the stuff that I see everyone just spouting off is software and that software was designed by the real wizards. I wouldn't call myself a novice to Android, but I am not an expert either. I can find my way around. I know some terminal stuff too.

So how about it? Anybody up for putting in a little time to help out?

Much, no, GREATLY APPRECIATED to anyone who would help out.
