    Titanium backup is the easiest way. (Look on market)

    You can also remove them with adb shell or terminal emulator on your phone.

    Here's how to do it with adb shell or terminal emulator
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. / $ su
    (will ask for premission first time on phone) (# = root)
    Code (Text):
    1. / # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    Code (Text):
    1. / # cd /system/app or /data/app
    --- /system/app = directory where apps that come pre-installed on the phone
    --- /data/app = directory where downloaded apps are stored
    Code (Text):
    1. / # ls
    (will list the contents in the current directory
    Code (Text):
    1. / # rm apk.apk
    That will remove an app.

    To get an backup using the adb way (idk how to move them with terminal emulator)

    Code (Text):
    1. adb pull /system/app/apk.apk
    2.          /data/app/apk.apk
    Since a directory isn't specified they will be pulled to the tools folder.

    ls will show all the contents just scroll to see that contents that it does not show

    Deleting odex's i do not think would hurt anything but not sure as i haven't deleted odex's.

    I am not technical savvy. I want to remove some of the programs preinstalled on my LG Ally. I don't know what you are talking about when you speak of rooting. ADB shell & Terminal Emulator are they a free program you can download to the Ally? When you speak of Code: is this something in the programs ADB Shell or Terminal Emulator? I don't want a bunch of programs no my phone just the necessary ones I would frequently use.
    Please help the dummy for the Droid phone.

    You can download terminal emulator from the market. That's where you put the code in if you don't have an adb shell.

    to actually free up memory does the cache need to be wiped? I've uninstalled several of the stock apps but still show the same amout of internal memory used.

    My memory stayed the same until I wiped the Dalvik cache.

    If you really want to do this in the easiest manner possible, download "Root Explorer".
