    Read through the Root threads here in the D2 sub-forum, for the most part we've all found that using the DX list worked out well.

    I always suggest using Titanium Backup and FREEZING instead of removing.

    I'm rooted, with stock 2.3.20. I changed the following .apk's to .bak's to keep them on the phone but prevent them from "showing up" since I've done this, my phone comes off charge at 7 am, and is at 40% battery at 10 pm. And that's with pretty steady use throughout the day.
    I haven't gone further yet, but just changing these apk's made a huge impact on battery life. I leave sync on all day with the stock gmail and email sevice, and screen brightness on auto. other changes was removal of haptic feedback, wifi sleep policy changed to never, backlight changed to 15 seconds, no animations, max battery saver mode on.
    Hope this helps.

    amazonmp3_1.8.11_signed_zipaligned.apk
    Blockbuster.apk
    CityID.apk
    com.vznavigator.DROIDX.apk (DROID 2 obviously)
    Mynet.apk
    redding-7648-signed-zipped.apk
    Skype_mobile.live.apk
    NFS shift can be deleted in applications.

    Even better to run a ROM that has them completely stripped off + blur
