    Installed the leaked update minus the bloatware, and was trying to remove more, but there are a couple that don't seem to work such as PDF viewer, and News and Weather Reader. I'm using these commands:

    mv /system/app/PDFViewer.apk /system/app.disabled/
    mv /system/app/NewsReader.apk /system/app.disabled/
    mv /system/app/com.htc.NewsReaderWidget.apk /system/app.disabled/

    Anyone been able to remove these two apps?

    Try
    mv /system/app/PDFViewer.apk /system/app.disabled/PDFViewer.apk
    mv /system/app/NewsReader.apk /system/app.disabled/NewsReader.apk
    mv /system/app/com.htc.NewsReaderWidget.apk /system/app.disabled/com.htc.NewsReaderWidget.apk

    You have to do a direct this to that, including file names :)

    None of the other apps I removed required the direct name in the apps.disabled folder, but the PDF Viewer actually worked that way. The News and Weather app doesn't seem to want to :(

    Check again to make sure the file names are exactly the same (punctuation and capitalization must be exact)

    Are you doing this in recovery, or just using USB debugging? If the latter, it could be that those apps are in use, preventing you from moving them.

    No, I'm doing it in recovery.
