First off, I would like to thank mindstate very much for the backup copy. For all those that grabbed a copy of his backup, please remember to thank him for taking the time to upload his backup set for us. I have been able to successfully fix my phone. For those who are trying to reinstall software that they have removed, I'm going to write a quick guide for you here.
1. Make sure you have root access. The instructions for rooting is the first post on the first page. Just a quick summary for those that might have missed it, root it by using superclick 2.2. However, before using superclick 2.2, you much run the following adb commands with the phone connected in usb development mode.
C:\adb> adb shell
$ echo 1 > /data/local/lge_adb.conf
2. Secondly, download root explorer and check the mount rw mode box at the top.
3. All the bloatware software is located in the system/app section. Copy all the files that you need (or you are missing) from your sd card to the system/app folder (include the apk and the odex files).
4. EDIT: You can skip this step!!! After that, click each apk file that you installed to reinstall it. Please note it will say that install was not successful. (I'm not sure if this step is needed or not, but I just did it like this and it worked. Please let me know if you tested it and that we can skip this step so I can update this post).
5. Finally, long click each file that you copied into your system/app folder and click on permission. The only things that should be checked is the following : owner read, owner write, group read, other read.
6. Restart the phone and you hopefully should be golden.
If you have any problems, please post and I'll do my best to help you.

The "background data" is probably the biggest battery drain I've ever seen. I've seen it improve battery life by at least double. So please note, it is a really huge battery saver. I don't even need to use "juice defender" or any of those crap battery saver programs. I just only turned off the "background data." This is valid for any android phone at all.

And I'm making a list of those files that can be removed safely so far without affecting the stability of the phone.
As for the other bloatware programs, I'm planning to freeze it using titanium backup so that I don't run into the issue of my phone having reboot issues and whatnot.
