    I'm rooted, was already wifi'd... now I just need to remove these useless aps that came with the phone.

    Can someone point me in the direction of the way to remove them?

    I have 2.2.1

    Thank you kindly!

    I used Titanium Backup Pro to freeze bloat apps to make sure it doesn't adversely affect the mobile's performance. Once I was sure it was okay I used the same to uninstall it.

    I was recently turned onto Root Uninstaller, but haven't been able to purchase it yet.

    Titanium Backup is one of the best methods to use, since you can make a backup just in case you need it later, and it rarely causes problems with the system files.

    You can manually uninstall the apks with any root capable (r/w) file manager, Root Explorer, ES File Manager, AndExplorer, etc. Open the file manager, go into it's settings and enable root and read/write, navigate to the /system/app folder, and delete the bloat. Might be a better idea to just move it to your sdcard till your sure you don't need it.

    You can also use adb or terminal commands to uninstall packages, just google it. ;)

    The dev has now decided to come out with a free version that appears to have all the same functionality of Root Uninstaller Pro. It wont do a batch install, but it will auto batch backup on initial opening and auto backup any newly installed app or update.

    It's called "Free Uninstaller"
    Installs backed up apks and a few more things that I can't remember.
