Default [MOD] Apps that can be deleted due root

Now that we have got root, we can delete some of the Apps that are Preinstalled.

I wanted to make a list with Files that can be deleted without causing problems.

To delete any of this Files you need root + some sort of Root Explorer or Root Manager
I tested this with both of Leshaks ways of gaining root and used Root Explorer to delete the files.

The Direction where they can be found is /system/app


First off all the Standard Apps:
Aldiko eBook -> aldiko-standard-1.2.6.1....apk
Allshare -> Dlna
BuddiesNow -> Buddiesnow.apk
Clock -> clockpackage.apk
bookstore - bookstore.apk
Daily Briefing -> Infoalarm.apk
Layer -> Layer-samsung.apk
Memo -> Memo.apk
Mini Diary -> MiniDiary.apk
Myfiles -> Myfiles.apk
Messages -> MMS.apk
Navigation -> Navigation.apk
SozialHub -> undifinedInbox.apk
uTalk -> clientUTalk-03062010.apk
VoiceRecorder-> VoiceRecorder.apk
VoceDialer-> VoiceDialer.apk
Writeandgo -> Writeandgo.apk


LiveWallpapers:
LiveWallpapers.apk
LiveWallpaperpicker.apk
MagicSmokeWallpapers.apk
TATLivewallpapersAurora.apk
TATLivewallpapersBlueSea.apk
TATLivewallpapersDandelion.apk
TATLivewallpapersOceanwave.apk
VisualizationWallpapers.apk

pre installed Tw Wallpapers:
TwWallpaperChoos.apk

TouchwizWidgets:
Days.apk
Dualclock.apk
SamsungWidget_stockclock.apk
SamsungWidget_Feedandupdate.apk
SamsungWidget_Calenderclock.apk
SamsungWidget_Weatherclock.apk




I also tried to delete the Touchwiz Launcher and Replace it with the Launcher Pro Beta and it kinda worked. But there was a bugreport that said

"android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. - Force close"

*update

I tried using root explorer, es strongs, etc... to deleted system/app applications (such as the utalk application in the F5 firmware) and it keeps coming back!
how do you successfully remove those ?

and what is the APK for bookstore ? the russian one in F5 firmware.

no problem, i havent tried root using adb but it shouldnt make a difference.
with csc, there is a tool that opens if a app wants to use root.
i am not familiar with adb root but perhaps you have to allow the programm to use root manual...

I've just rooted my phone and it's my first android experience so can I just go ahead and delete these APKs? They will automatically disappear from my widgets/app list or do I have to perform some sort of uninstall first?

(I'm comfortable enough with su/linux commands to understand what I'm doing)
