    I'm running ultimate Droid right now. Previously I was running smoked glass and with that rom I was able to remove the stock Apps, but with ultimate Droid I can't figure it out.

    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox rm /system/app/corpcal.apk
    busybox rm /system/app/AlarmClock.apk
    busybox rm /system/app/Calculator.apk
    busybox rm /system/app/com.amazon.mp3.apk
    sync
    reboot
    

    Insert whatever app name.

    When you reboot go to manage applications and finish the uninstall for what you removed.

    Unless I am mistaken, proper capitalization counts for those commands?

    Yes it does, so if I made a typo, please note.

    I learned the hard way when trying to ditch Facebook. I was convinced my Droid was possessed by a Facebook demon when I kept entering "busybox rm /system/app/facebook.apk" and rebooted only to see it still there. :D
