    You could also use ADB if you want to back the stuff up while you're removing it. Use pull to copy to your computer, run the shell, mount your system folder, and use the aforementioned rm to remove the .apks.

    What I did to get rid of that annoying bloatware was to open up command prompt.

    Then type in the following commands

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cd /system/app
    ls - that is a LS not IS

    Once you type in ls you will see all of the apps that are on your phone. Find the ones that you want and type in the following.. I will use Blockbuster as an example.

    mv Blockbuster.apk Blockbuster.bak

    This command will essentially make it so the phone cant read the application, and therefore will not start it up or anything. If you ever needed to get it back in the future just switch the above code from .bak back to .apk.

    Once you have deleted all of the apps you no longer want just run

    sync

    You are done!

    Enjoy the phone

    There is a nice sticky thread right at the top of the droid x hacks section that showed up 1 minute after this thread was started. that should help you out too:

    [HOW TO] Remove bloatware
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
