    What Verizon Value Added Apps (i.e. bloatware) can I safely remove from my rooted Droid R2D2? Also, do I have to keep a backup of them somewhere so I can put them back in place so I can update to Gingerbread when it (hopefully) comes out for my R2D2?

    From what I have been told when they run the updates it checks for some of the bloatware. So I would suggest freezing them with an app like bloatfreeze or Titanium. That way they will be removed from menus and phone usage but you can easily bring back. Or make a full back-up so you can bring them back. Freezing is easy though.

    Yeah, I just bought Titanium Backup Pro for that.

    It costs a little more but I like how easy Titanium runs. Plus I did not mind dishing out some money because of how often I use the program. Easy to freeze and unfreeze. I had to restart my phone to get a few of the bloat apps to be removed from the menu like VZ Nav.

    See, I don't have VZ Nav for some reason. But I have gotten rid of a lot I don't use already.
