    Personally I would not remove any apps (bloatware) as it will keep your phone from ota updates successfully. With all the room and speed on the phone I wouldnt think it is probably needed. Kinda like I see people asking about overclocking.... Seriously? From what I have seen you should just freeze the bloatware apps as that is probably the best way. As for the list of what to freeze I am not sure but I have seen posts on this but it may have been on droidrzr.com :icon_ lala:

    +1 on the advice kb3awq has given. Do Not Delete any apps unless they are apps that you have downloaded and installed. If you delete an app that you cannot normally delete without root then you will not be able to successfully do an OTA update until you replace the stock apps you deleted. There are three (I think it's three) apps that came with the Razr you can delete without root. Golf and a couple others. Do a menu>settings>manage applications and select each app. If the uninstall box is not grayed out then you can safely uninstall it. If it is grayed out then it cannot be uninstalled without root.

    There's a complete list over on Droidrzr.com (probably here somewhere also). The list is for freezing not deleting and just because something is on the list, doesn't necessarily mean you need to freeze it. Besides the OTA problem, deleting certain "bloat" can cause other apps that you might use, not to work.
    I just freeze apps that I don't want to see in the drawer and a few of the Verizon/Yahoo bloat that I don't use.
    With Titanium BU (paid version) you can do a batch unfreeze when it's time to update.

    There's no SBF anymore with the Razr and yes, you can use the fastboot files to get back to the current build 6.12.173 stock. If you haven't seen it, follow the link to the Droid Razr Utility and keep it handy as it can solve any and all of the problems that modifying your Razr may incur. It also contains all of the most used hacks all in one easy to use utility.
    Good luck.
