Question Weird issue with rooting using Visionary

Hey all I hope I amn't repeating what others have asked but I've done a search both here and on other sites as well as google and I can't get an answer.

Basically I've just got a DHD last week and I decided to root it. I decided to use Paul O'Brians VISIONary app and followed instructions to first temproot and then permanently root. Everything seemed to work without a hitch.

I was able to su. So the first thing I wanted to do with root was to remove some bloat. I first of all just went into my terminal emulator, mounted the relevant folder ( /system/app/ ) and deleted the bloatware. Everything seemed to work fine and the bloat was gone.

Then I rebooted and while I still had root (I was able to su) the bloatware had reappeared.

I then tried to use the Titanium backup app to remove the bloatware. Again, it removed it fine and everything was good until I rebooted the device and the bloatware reappeared.

So could anyone please answer some questions for me.

1. Am I doing something completely wrong ? Are these apps been reinstalled by the system or am I not removing them correctly ?

2. I don't particularly want (but neither am I against the idea of) a custom rom, as I quite like HTC sense and some HTC apps but I would like to modify it to my liking. i.e. remove bloat & some HTC apps, install my own preferred apps. Is this even possible or do I need to install a rom ?

Thanks all in advance.

Hi, removeing apps is quite simple, using Titanium backup. BUT, please be warned, if you remove the bloatware (know to HTC as "stock apps") you will NOT be able to update your phone using OTA updates.
