    You need full root to delete factory apps... as in read/write access to /system. UnRevoked does not give you this.

    After you do have full root, I don't believe there's a program that will remove apps. You'll have to either flash a custom rom that has the stock apps removed or learn how to use adb and remove them manually through shell commands.

    I think once you have full root you can delete any apps you want through a variety of apps. I used titanium backup to remove Peep which was included on the Fresh rom.
