Default How to remove preinstalled apps from rooted Legend?

Compadres,

I want to remove some pre-installed apps from an HTC Legend and, as I am not an expert, I need some advice. So far, I have done the follwing:

- I have downgraded from Android 2.2/Build 3.15 to Android 2.1/Build 1.31.405.4.
- HBOOT is 1.01.000
- I have installed Titanium VISIONary+, perm rooted the phone
- Installed Titanium Backup

When I started Titanium, I got only 5 apps listed, and the advice to install BusyBox.

I installed Busybox installer, as well as Busybox itself (fromMarket), phone said it was successfully installed. Back to Busybox installer, try to install but I get the message: “application failed, either because the device is not nand or we were unable to remount”.

When I start Titanium, it says the phone is rooted. In the apps list I see now all the apps, the Busybox installer, but not Busybox itself.

Nonetheless I try to uninstall an app (e.g. Flickr), the phone reboots and when its back on the app is still there.

So I try it a different way: adb shell, su, rm /system/app/Flickr.apk, reply is rm failed, directory not empty.
I have been looking for a solution on the blogs, so far I tried everything but it still does not work. As I am a novice in all this, I would rather not flash a ROM or whatever drastic measures I should take.

So 2 questions:
- If I freeze an app with Titanium, it is taken away from the apps screen, does this mean it does not run anymore?
- As this is a principle matter, I really could use some advice on how to once and for all delete these useless apps.

Thanks in advance!

Okay did it. Installed LATEST version of Titanium, together with Superuser and Busybox did this the trick: open Titanium, go to Backup/Restore, select the app you want to remove, hold it, choose Force Remove. Phone reboots twice, app is gone.
