    Ok so I rooted had safe strap and removed since I don't wasn't to install a different ROM. Now how do I remove all the bloatware? Or I need a new ROM?

    Use Titanium Backup from the Play Store to freeze the bloatware. Do not remove it. Removing it will cause major problems if you want to install an OTA update in the future. Since you don't want to install a custom ROM, I'm going to guess you'll want future updates.

    Just a side note: the upcoming ICS update will allow you to freeze any installed apps (including bloatware) natively within the OS without needing root access.

    Download Titanium Backup and it will allow you to freeze the bloat instead of deleting it. If it's deleted, you will not be able to do an OTA update

    Yeah, but if you're serious about rooting and making changes to your phone, it's pretty much the first app you should get. Titanium Backup Pro is a core component of Android Rooting 101. It's some of the best money you'll ever spent on an Android device, and it only cost as much as a quick lunch.

    But of course, you can always wait until ICS when you'll be able to freeze without needing any additional apps.

    Anyone have a safe freeze list? I rooted mine the day after I got it and I've got a few things on here, but I don't want to overstep the limits...

    So far I have frozen:

    Slacker Radio
    IM
    MotoActv
    Motocas
    Verzion ring
    Verizon Nav


    What else is safe to freeze?
    Is there a way to see what is running tasks without installing a task manager?

    Just use the included task manager.

    There are a couple of threads that include what is safe to freeze. Do a search.
