    Don't be scared, you won't brick your phone removing stuff as long as you are careful. Just use titanium or something similar to back stuff up before you remove it.

    I removed the music app as well and pretty much all the virgin apps. Twitter, facebook etc. I removed the version of swype that comes with the phone and installed the market version.

    I removed weather, stock email app. shopper, weather theme, will get rid of more i'm sure. Any one uninstall google books, magazine and movies yet? I never use them but don't know if taking them out will break google's rhythm?

    We now have a working recovery, so removing the bloat's a bit safer. Now if we could get rid of the automatic reset we can actually get started designing roms for it. XD Can hardly wait. I did remove most of the bloat the second I rooted it, though.

    Already taken care of, apparently I believe the developer we have working on our phone either already posted it or has still yet to post it yet, but he found the issue that caused the factory reset and he fixed it in a boot.img that's been loki'd. We need more developers is all we need.

    I never kept the Google books, etc., on my other phone with no problems. This one, too, seems okay without them.
