    First, I couldn't find this already posted.

    Second, please note: This is not a permant root. The data, however, that controls packaging is on the /Data partition which is read-writable since it needs to be shared with the locked /system partition and the Market.

    The quick notes I have:

    1. Install Visonary.
    2. Install Terminal Emulator (or similar that includes su)
    3. Run Visonary.
    4. Run terminal emulator.
    5. su
    6. pm list packages > /mnt/sdcard/packages.txt
    7. Now, plug phone into a computer of your choice and mount the sdcard.
    8. copy packages.txt to disable.sh
    9. Edit disable.sh and remove the stuff you want to keep. If your not sure if it should be disabled either google search it, or worry about it later.
    10. Make sure you NotePad, VI, EMacs or similar. DO NOT USE WORD NOR WORDPAD. If you don't understand this, then consult with someone who does please :)
    11. Add #!sh as the first line in diable.sh
    12. Now, cleaning unmount your phone.
    13. in the Terminal Emulatar type:
    14. sh /mnt/sdcard/disable.sh

    DISCLAIMER: Good luck and it's not my fault if the above doesn't work.

    This works for both the G2 and the mytouch 4G as posted from the good folks at XDA-Developers.com:
