    So I've seen a couple ways to remove bloatware, just wondering has anyone used the Titanium Backup way to remove the bloatware?

    Just downloaded Titanium Backup..... how does one use this method to get rid of bloatware?

    When I select an app from the list, lets say Amazon MP3, I get a box that pops up that gives me an option to un-install and then a bit under that an option to delete. Which one do I select?

    Uninstall.

    FYI... Amazon MP3 is the one app that Titanium seems to have a problem with removing, and it seems to be pretty 50-50 on it working. For instance, it wouldn't remove on mine but it removed on my fianc

    One last question, if I deleted a app that I needed and can't find it, couldn't I just recover the whole Rom using nandroid and have them again? I'm just going to delete the ones I don't want and hope I don't need them again.

    If you don't want to delete you can just move them to a diffrent folder. I used root explorer just in case if I ever want to go back and use one.
