    Familiar with Linux?

    Navigate to /system/app and list the files.

    The titles of the files are pretty straightforward. Just rename them from filename.apk to filename.bak

    Actually, these are system apps, and are contained within /system/app.

    Unless you are rooted, they cannot be renamed, or removed.

    It seems to me that using Root Explorer would be easier as it has that RW/RO button to make the /system RW and then put it back to RO after the names have been changed. I've never done this but that seems like the easiest way.

    Good luck.
