Aren't you using ARHD? That shouldn't have network bloatware installed.

Ah ok.

Not sure to be honest. I know removing anything that came pre installed on the handset that you can add an account for in Accounts & Sync is a pretty bad idea, but if they put games etc on there, that'd probably be ok. Anything that mentioned 3 would probably cause problems too.

As long as you take a backup in CWM before you do anything, you're safe. If you try to remove something the system thinks it needs to load on boot, then you'll go into a bootloop and they only way to sort would be restoring your backup.

There isn't a comprehensive list unfortunately so it would just be a case of trial and error.

Just an FYI but I've just rooted my year old DHD for the first time using the AceHack SW mentioned over on xda. Not wanting, yet anyway, to install another ROM, just wanted to be able to do things like remove bloatware. Again, there wasn't too much of that as mine was unlocked and unbranded but just things like Facebook, Amazon MP3, etc.

I just 'froze' the apps. using AntTek App Manager from the market. Seemed to get good reviews and works so far for me. Though if you've already got TB probably not much use. But just to add it is free.

Just my tuppence worth.
