xda user eyeamgreg managed to debloat and he was nice enough to shed some light on how he accomplished this. He said he s-OFFed, used cleaner master and for the apps cleaner master wouldn't remove, he used titanium backup. It appears that with s-ON, the apps will reappear upon deletion. If this works for ya, make sure you spank his thanks button

It might be because you can't write to the system partition, even with root. Flash this kernel over stock and you should be able to delete system apps, even with S-ON http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2705074
