It can and will be done, however everyone's idea of crapware varies. You can remove the apps you don't want by using RootExplorer and delete the unwanted .apks in /system/app

Or titanium backup if u don't know what's safe/unsafe to remove. You can freeze to test.

If you are using RootExplorer, click the mount r/w icon up at the top right. You have to use a file explorer that supports changing read permissions to writeable. Otherwise Titanium Backup is a great and safe alternative.

What all IS safe to remove that won't break anything? I froze a bunch of stuff and then all hell broke loose and I had to reflash everything so I don't want to risk removing essential stuff again...

I always use this! You could always edit the text file to add or remove applications you don't want.

I just posted a list of everything that I have found is safe to remove here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9&postcount=87
I think system tuner is free or really cheap, in the one click part of the app you can backup, freeze, or uninstall system apps if you have root..
