    Bloatware

    Which bloatware is safe to freeze or remove? I read somewhere theres a way to freeze it and if something goes wrong I can undo it to fix force closes or what ever. It had something to do with renaming the files? But does that get rid of them from ur app drawer?

    You can use Titanium Backup to freeze them or an app such as Root Explorer to change the extensions on apps in /system/app from .apk to .bak or .apk.bak to disable them. They will no longer appear in your app drawer. Doing these to some apps is known to cause a FC issue but a battery pull usually takes care of that.

    There are posts over on xda and here listing which ones you can freexe without a hitch. I did all the vcast, social messaging, gotomeeting, etc. i read that the yahoo apps will cause contacts to force close. But just be wary of taking stuff out. I would wait till someone else confirms an app is good to remove before doing it yourself if you are unsure. We have no sbf or custom recovery to backtrack to. So if your phone stops working you are gonna have to figure out someway to get it back.
