Doesn't MTs do this? If your stock rooted might as well use MTs.

Yes but his removes some of the stuff like LG Launcher and such, and it also adds various scripts and such

Thanks. I plan to stick with the stock rooted rom and removing bloatware is something I'd like to do. Could you provide a list that tells me exactly what this removes?

Ok. I was able to get it. Thanks. Two questions:

(1) since this removes the bloat form the stock (odexed) V8 rom, I'm asuming it removes the .apks from system/app and removes the corresponding .odexs from system/framework, yes?

(2) There's a few apps and widgets like the LG Calendar widget I'd like to keep around. Can I simply make a copy of the .apks and .odexs this removes and restore individual ones by simply copying them back into their corresponding folders or is it more complicated?

(1) yes

(2) yes, just copy them back into /system/app make sure they have correct permissions otherwise they will fc. you can always fix permissions by using the option in CWM
