    I froze both of them in Titanium on my X. No problems.

    Somewhere there is a list of what you can remove and what you can't.

    OK, I'm not finding a list so I'm going to make it simple: Leave the blur alone, you can delete and replace any bloatware EXCEPT City I.D. Trust me on that, I had to sbf just because of that one file.

    In the stickies of this hacking section you'll find a link that will give you all the files that comes with the D2.

    Your safest and easiest way to remove bloatware is to change the extension. It won't remove the bloatware, but you won't have to look at it on your phone. All you do when you want to upgrade is return the proper extension to the file.

    Backed up and deleted vznavigor and social networking and any other running or downloaded file that had to do with them, and a ton of other motorola bloatware. Thank God for titanium backup its a lifesaver.
