    I did my first root.

    I just rooted the Fascinate successfully. This is the first Android unit Ive owned. My question now is, how do I remove all that shiz that VZW put on it. I odn't want 95% of those stupid apps. Can someone walk me through what I need to do now? Thank you!

    You will need to purchase Root Explorer from the Market. You can uninstall them using that.

    That's the only way? I have to purchase something? Not that I care about a few bucks (although that means one less beer tonight) but I'm surprised there isn't another way. :-)

    I can not confirm this but you might want to find out first if removing any of the 'bloatware' will have adverse affects on your device.

    ie. With the Droid X removing the bloatware is not recommended. Renaming the apps was a solution.

    I personally don't have the answer so I'm merely airing on the side of caution for you.

    You can uninstall apps using titanium backup, but I renamed most of them in system/app with root explorer, as opposed to removing.

    The heroics with messing with system for me will begin when we get a custom recovery going.

    Words of wisdom.

    Many folks screwed up their Droids bad by deleting files instead if renaming them.

    It will save you a lot of time using it to delete or rename whatever you need to compared to going the "adb" way.

    I strongly suggest that you don't start deleting random things. Wait for someone with a custom rom, or scripts. Trust me, unless you know exactly what you are doing, you could really do some harm that isn't easy (if at all possible) to undo.

    This is why I chose not to even bother rooting my Fascinate as soon as I get it. Because of no custom ROM, there's no way to recover if or when something unexpected happens. It would be a major upset if you suddenly can't use your smartphone for anything.

    I'll just opt for the Google work around Bing for now. Google Maps Navigation can be downloaded and used so no big worries there.
