Can I rename:
They are the Backup Client that comes with the phone, which I don't need as I use MyBackupPro.
Also, noticed the following:
NewBayVault_4.2.96.VZMarket.apk (looks like a VCast app)
Clicker.apk (icon of a hammer)
How much memory are we saving with the removal of bloatware? I'm going to do it, but since 5GB of space is missing from the 8GB touted (yes formatted space is less) but I had read the VZ Navigator app has the maps installed in there. Is this true, if so how do we get rid of them?
Is it ok to move these apks to the sd card then save the apks from the sd card to my desktop and completely remove then from my sd card? They will be saved on my desktop and I can add them back to the system/app if I need to with root explorer if need be correct? I would just mount the same way I took them off with correct. I'm only asking because that's how I did it with my og droid and it was ok.

I'm a long time member at Android Forums and XDA and was looking for a list of safe apps to remove to see if I missed any and stumbled upon this thread. I created an account here just to post that you can safely remove any and all traces of VZW Backup Assistant. I have removed them and my phone is perfectly fine. Not sure where the OP heard that it will FUBAR your device, but better safe than sorry I guess. Also, I would make a backup before removing just in case as YMMV
Well I feel dumb, on my OG droid to get rid of system apps, I would just delete them through root explorer. So that's what I decided to do for the Blockbuster app but after reading this I see it can cause problems later on with OTA updates. Weird thing is, is that I even after deleting the .apk, I still have the Blockbuster app in my app drawer and I can still use it. Any suggestions with on putting it back in system/app or should I be okay?
