    I know its possible to do this, but I'm not sure what the terminal commands are to change the FB's file name from .apk to .bak. Didn't find anything with a quick google search, does anyone know the commands or have a link to a source that does?

    My guess is that this worked with the Droid. I just got the Droid X and when I enter "su", I'm being promted for a password. Anyone know what it is? I want to remove a number of apps that I'm stuck with and do not want (facebook, blockbuster, etc.)

    You have to be rooted in order to do this, and with those instructions you will also need busybox installed. Both should be doable on the Droid X at this point though, check the Droid X section below for more information on how to do all that.
