    Root - Custom Rom - Titanium Backup - Short touch on the app - remove.

    Again ....CAUTION some apps will mess up the phone if removed.

    Not Sure - I couldn't get Titanium Backup to run correctly on Stock Rom -
    Feel Free to Try -

    NFX - is basically the 2.1update 1 with Patch - If you love stock - I HIGHLY recomend it - Smooth and fast.

    patience on the rebooting with the new Rom - it can take 5-10 min on the HTC screen and on the NOW screen.

    Is there not a list out there somewhere that just shows the programs that are safe to remove? I'm interested in just deleting bloatware right now, not flashing an actual rom yet. I'm still researching the different roms.

    YES - Look on XDA - Sorry don't have the link-

    As stated above - I couldn't get titanium backup to work properly on the stock ROM.
    (probably user error though) So I flashed NFX - Worked Perfectly.

    I know Odex is faster than the other, if you are looking for speed go with Odex;)

    Odex boots faster, but in daily use, there is no significant difference. Deodex allows for custom themes, which are hard to do on odex.

    Go to backup/restore, long press on nascar and nfl and uninstall the apk.

    :eek:Again, DELETING a wrong apk can create serious troubles, so make sure you only delete the ones you know

    Which rom are you running?

    If CM6/2.2/Froyo, then moving apps 2 sd is native. Meaning you will NOT have to partition your sd card.

    If NFX, Zen roms, Fresh 2.1/Eclair, you WILL have to partition your sd card.

    As far as which apps you can delete? Most developers will have in depth information on which apks you can delete. Don't have a link right now, but here is just a few. Sprint TV, Sprint Nav, NFL, MP3...

    Things like the stock messaging app, GTalk... DO NOT DELETE

    I have never partitioned my sd card, as I'm running Froyo. Wish I could help more but maybe do a search here or on xda and I know you will find an answer.
