    Has anyone seen such a list or would you like to start one? I put this in All Things Root because you need to be rooted to delete them.

    Using Titanium backup, (first did a backup of all apps + system data), then deleted "Stocks" apps, Facebook, Twitter since I don't use them and they seem to autoload/use memory anyway.

    Are there any that will definitely cause problems if deleted?

    After trying paid version of Titanium Backup I see no point in messing with ADB. TB can backup and uninstall and you don't have to figure out what files are related to what application.

    Thanks, his list is helpful but a little out of date. I'm leaving all the things I don't understand in place. No sense messing up my phone when it's working so well now.

    (a little knowledge in the wrong hands can be a dangerous thing!) :D

    The bloatware hasn't really changed on the incredible since it came out. I think Amazon mp3 and slacker should be added to the list though.

    To be fair it's pretty hard to mess up your phone by deleting something in the apps folder. Worst case you ask for someone to post it, or download any stock rom and pull the apk from there!
