    I've found that renaming the .apk files is a much easier way of removing "bloatware" than removing them entirely. This way I don't have to backup the phone first or worry about pushing files back to the phone that I didn't want to delete.

    Following the removal posts, rather than

    rm -f filename.apk

    I chose to

    mv filename.apk filename.apk.bak

    It has the same affect but no worries about scrambling to push a file back to the phone.

    This is for the EVO, but it should be universal.

    Hope this helps.
