Not really sure which app did it but moving one of these put my phone into a boot loop and I had to do a nandroid restore.

Thanks to Honestly for the info. I'm always a bit nervous about completely deleting something when I'm not to sure about what I'm doing in the first place.

EDIT: I wasn't able to get Teeter, CityID, or My Verizon to work. Is it because they don't read like the rest? Example: /system/bin/mv /system/app/VZW_Skype.apk (THIS PART MISSING IN THOSE THREE~~> /system/app/) VZW_Skypeb.apkb

My apologies, you are correct. I forgot to add the /system/app/ on the second part of the command. I will update the post to correct the issues. Thanks.

If you setup some accounts such as Facebook and the VZ backup before you removed the apk's you will have FC and possible loop boots. Otherwise these commands should not have created any problems.

The best time to remove all these programs is right after you install the rom.

Hate to bump an old thread but....I want to remove a bunch of apps I don't use. I have a program call "File Manager" which has a setting for "root explorer" and a setting to "mount" system as writable. Would it be acceptable to rename these files from within that application? I would assume at that point a simple reboot and they would no longer show up in my app drawer?

The stuff I don't use is:

Facebook
Friend Stream
Peep
Skype
Quickoffice
Slacker
Teeter
VZW Backup Assistant
DSP Manager
Twitter (though its not in my app drawer even though apk is present in system/app)
Flickr (again, not in app drawer)
Carpanel

I also noticed that there are two apks in there as well for things like facebook. There is facebook and htcfacebook. Would I rename both of those?

You can rename them, move them, delete them (not reccomended), or use an app like titanium backup and several others to freeze the apps. You can rename all the facebook apks if you do not use facebook on your phone at all. If you delete widgets it will leave empty or wrong selections in the add widget menu.
