    I'm trying to delete the Google apps such as books, chrome, music, movies, Google keyboard, swype, android keyboard, and my metro. Does anyone know where these are located? I have them frozen with titanium backup but when I try to uninstall it says it can't find the apk. Any help here?

    Custpack/app/unremovable/withoutlibs

    The entire custpack folder is filled with directories containing bloatware.

    And also system/app but be more careful with this...

    I removed the apps I wanted but they are still there after reboot, kinda weird they put the apps in /cust-pck and not in /vendor
