I don't really want to install a custom ROM, but I definitely want to remove crap like Peep, Footprints, Nascar, Sprint TV etc.

Is there an app that anyone knows about in the market for rooted phones that will do this ? Or can I just remove them to my SD Card for backup ?

Further still, does anyone know the exact files to remove (I this there is an .apk and an odex to remove correct ?)

Hi.

1. Install "Better Terminal" application.

2. Run and write:

su
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cd /system/app
ls

At this point you will have a list of all the stock crap on your screen. If you go about removing stuff you may screw up your phone. That?s what the backup we took earlier was for. Don?t think you made a backup with app store app so you are alright. Do the nandroid backup. Don?t be an idiot about this.

To remove an app simply use the rm command. The following commands remove Sprint NFL, Sprint Nascar, Peep, Footprints, and Sprint Stock, the stock music program (if you are using something else), and Quick Office
rm *Twitt*
rm *Stock*
rm *Foot*
rm Quickoffice_HTC_1.0.1.apk
rm com.htc.MusicWidget.apk
rm com.htc.MusicWidget.odex
rm HtcMusic.apk
rm Sprint_Nscar.apk
