    Ya I did a reboot and I used root explorer to rename the apps but they still remain in the apps list im not sure if there's something im missing because the other apps that i renamed to .bak arnt there anymore. also i noticed your .bak was with a capital b is that needed?

    The only reason u don't delete is if u need to go back to stock and if u do delete all u do is download xxx.apk to ur sd then go into root explorer go to ur sd move xxx.apk to system/app no I don't suggest delete much but I did for amazon and stuff like that

    weird. i found that even though it wasn't under downloads, when i went to blockbuster on the market it showed uninstall. so that got blockbuster off. but i still have everything else. city id, amazon, all of that garbage.

    hmmmm... weird. i'm using launcherpro. i verified that all of the bloat was opening and running as if still installed. so i opened my drawer, long pressed, long held over trash to uninstall and it worked. i don't get it. what exactly are the odex files for? could that be doing something?
