How to remove "SprintWare" from your rooted Hero
1. BACKUP though nandroid on the RA.
2. See #1
Plug in to the PC, navigate to SDK/tools/ and open the console
adb shell su mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
I would be very selective with what I remove. At first I basically wiped out anything I didn't want, and got many errors. Here's what I've removed with no bad result:
I would imagine Sprint TV and it's widget could be added to the list as well, but I decided I may use them. I would be leery of removing peep, IM, Sprint_Nav, and Gtalk.

It's close. There is a kernel bug that SHOULD grant root access. Right now myself and about 50 other people are trying to build a little script to inject some code. Trust me...when it happens any website with the words Android Verizon or Droid will have it plastered all over it
Look for a 30 page thread at the top of the droid forum here when it does lol.ಠ_ಠ

I'm not sure why Peep wants to keep running. Until someone can verify what it's doing in the background, I don't see the need to pull it out.
The Market needs Gtalk to be working.
Gtalk needs part of IM to work.
I actually use the IM app so I haven't investigated which parts (there are 6) of the app are needed and which aren't, so I can't recommend removing any of itಠ_ಠ

I was mainly just curious about IM. I'd like to use it, but it pulls an incomplete and out of date buddy list for aim.
Peep, on the other hand, I have found useless as a Twitter client simply because I prefer Seesmic.
