Default [Q] Trying to root Sensation 4G

Basically all I want to do is be able to root it and uninstall some stock apps and install apps that require my phone to be rooted. Looking around the forums, there are just so many instructions on how to do this it's overwhelming. What is the most basic way to do what I want to do?

Alright, so I was able to figure it out and am now rooted. Now my question is, what apps can I uninstall that won't cause any harm to my phone? For example, I would like to uninstall Music Hub, Slacker Radio, N.O.V.A, for example...is there a list of apps that are safe to uninstall?

You can see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1631861. It's all you need for removing unwanted apps. I recommend Titanium Backup.
