Hi all! I've been browsing the Devour section of the forums deciding whether or not to root it or just wait and get a new phone. Long story short, I rooted it. The only issue I've run into so far is finding a list of APKs/ODEXs I can remove safely. So this thread is to compile a list of apps you can and cannot safely remove. Safely removed: QuickOffice.apk (Quick Office) com.vzw.vvm.android.apk (Visual Voice Mail) VCastVideos.apk (VCast Video Client) VCastMusic.apk (VCast Music Client) VZNav.apk (VZ Navigator) TtsService.odex TtsService.apk (Text-to-Speech) News-release.odex News-release.apk (News Widget) VpnServices.odex VpnServices.apk (Virtual Private Network) HelpCenter-release.odex HelpCenter-release.apk (Help Center) MusicSync.odex MusicSync.apk (Vcast music sync) DrmProvider.odex DrmProvider.apk (Most likely important if you have DRM protected music) VSuiteApp.odex VSuiteApp.apk (Remove these after you have removed everything else, phone will need to restart twice before it calms down.) (update 2) SocialMessaging-release.odex SocialMessaging-release.apk (Not sure what these are for yet. Nothing breaks upon removal though.) SocialShare-release.odex SocialShare-release.apk (Once again, not sure what these are for. Nothing breaks upon removal.) (update 3) BlurHome.odex BlurHome.apk (Phone's home screen. This can be removed IF you have another home screen installed. ex: ADW.Launcher for 1.6.) Don't Know: BlurSNMessagingEngine-release.odex BlurSNMessagingEngine-release.apk BlurEmailEngine-release.odex BlurEmailEngine-release.apk BlurUpdater-release.odex BlurUpdater-release.apk MotoPhonePortal.odex MotoPhonePortal.apk megamaid-release.odex megamaid-release.apk Do not remove: blur-services-release.odex blur-services-release.apk (Removing this breaks contacts/texts. This also creates an annoying error when placing/deleting widgets off the home screen.) ImProvider.apk (Breaks market) If you have any input on what you can and cannot remove, please let us know! Edit - 8/4/2010: Identified apps, made list more readable. Update - 8/4/2010: Trial and error and a little snooping around through other phone forum's APK/odex lists. Update - 8/6/2010: More Trial and error. Removed all the MotoBlur apps, killed my phone and reinstalled. Accidentally removed an app so now I have to go download it. Update - 8/7/2010: More T&E. Update on Blur apks.
