    the answer is yes and no... kitchen while it doesn't support the 2.1 ROMs yet (and won't until Sprint releases it officially) you can use it to add and remove apps. Flipz provides the apps removed on his site Deposit Files if you look in the removed section of Download: Fresh Rom 2.0d | visual voicemail + a2sd + lwp Geek For Me – Android CDMA Sprint Hero it even tells you how to use Kitchen to add them back.

    as far as removing apps. IF the apps are in the same location as the 1.5 ROM, then kitchen should be able to remove them. keep in mind that the football app changed and probably can't be removed with kitchen unless you know the location and name of the APK... then it's a simple matter of telling kitchen to pull the files.

    Just a heads up DFRESH isn't the developer behind the Fresh Rom and Fresh Kitchen - that would be Flipz.

    opps....sorry dfresh and flipz :) i guess i was confused because it's called Fresh!

    i can't do anything with kitchen because my phone won't connect. It's telling me Java failed...and telling me remount failed?
    i remember when I initially rooted my phone, java failed, and i did something to fix it, but i can't recall what it was. the little help next to the fail tells me to locate where java.exe is....but i have no clue where it's location is.

    and remount? not sure? the help next to this is telling me i am either Not rooted (which obviously I am ) or that i'm not running a rom that supports it. again, not sure what to do at this point.

    any ideas?

    The kitchen is not made for 2.1, I have had no success using it to pull or push apps and I am running 2.0d. Just use the adb shell to push and pull apk's. Try this link for some help on how to remove apps: How to remove Stocks, Nascar and other useless apps... - xda-developers

    i've seen this explanation before but I'm not sure I understand exactly what to do. I connect my phone to the computer....after that, I'm lost. I see which files i would delete, but I don't understand how to get to that point.

    Did you manually root? If not, follow the first step of manual rooting so you have the adb commands on your computer.

    After you have done that, go to Windows start menu and find run command and type:
    cmd
    Enter key
    cd c:\android-sdk-windows\tools
    Enter key again
    Your prompt should now look like this:
    c:\android-sdk-windows\tools>

    Once you are there, follow the commands (Enter key after each command) in that thread link I sent or like below (only run one command at a time):
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cd /system/app
    ls

    "ls" gives you a listing of all the apps and their names in that folder you can remove, once you know which ones you want to remove, you use commands below:

    rm Stock.apk

    That's it man! Good luck.

    To add apps back, you put a copy of the apk file in your c:\android-sdk-windows\tools folder then go into dos prompt again and instead of running adb shell just type following(I am using the Stock.apk file as an example, you replace that with the file you saved on your c drive and want to push):
    adb push Stock.apk /system/app

    That's it.

    lolllllll dude I would never take credit for one of the best two ROM's out there (FRESH and Damage Control), but thank you very much for thinking I am some sort of god around here. Because that I am not...

    But to answer your question ...all you have to do is push the apk file to your phone through ADB ...

    1: go to run and type cmd (or just open your command prompt)
    2: cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
    3: adb remount
    4: adb devices *if everything is set up right this should output a serial number*
    5: adb push FFFFFFF.FFF /#####/###### *i hope my notes help here you need to put the file name in for the F(s) and in the pound signs you put the destination on the devices example adb push build.prop.txt /system/bin
    6. repeat step 3 for multiple files
    7. adb reboot this is how you finish
