    Root explorer is a great app that can remove anything you want. One tip though is to not get over zealous and remove stuff you dont know what it does. Root explorer is a great tool to have on a rooted phone. Sometimes it takes a reboot to have the app completely gone. Everything that root explorer does you can also do via ADB (if its all setup). Hope this helps

    Here's the scripts list for LFY 1.7, type these commands into "terminal emulator' (free app) to run them. These scripts include the most common apps people like to remove.

    apps2sdoff - all apps will be installed internally
    apps2sdon - all apps will be installed to your sdcard
    blockads - blocks ads from apps
    chkrec - checks to ensure a fully working recovery is flashed
    compcache - start, stop, and stats to control compcache
    cpuinfo - displays current clockspeeds and cpu information
    godmode - permission to system so any file manager may access root
    reboot - reboots your phone
    recovery - reboots into recovery
    rmbrowser - removes stock web browser
    rmcarhome - removes car home
    rmdeskclock – removes desk clock
    rmemail - removes stock email app
    rmfacebook - removes Facebook from system/app
    rmgeniewidget - removes genie widget (news and weather)
    rmlauncherpro – removes launcher pro
    rmlivewallpapers - removes live wallpapers
    rmmototorch – removes mototorch led
    rmpandora – removes pandora radio
    rmtitaniumbu – removes titanium backup
    rmtwitter – removes twitter
    rmyoutube - removes YouTube app
    showads - shows ads from apps
    soundoff - turns off camera shutter sound
    soundon - restores camera shutter sound
    sysrw - mounts system as read/write
    sysro - mounts system as read/only

    so to remove email, in terminal you would type

    su
    rmemail


    Other apps can be remove by getting the paid version of titanium backup, or downloading root explorer from the market. In root explorer, the app file names are found in either /data/app or /system/app. You would set the files as r/w and you can either just delete them, or run these commands in terminal.

    su
    rm /(data or system)/app/(file name, ex. Launcher2.apk)
    pm uninstall (file name, this file is found in settings>applications>all)
