Default Apps safe to remove

As I do with every phone, I remove the preloaded applications as soon as I was rooted. Since this is a world phone, there are other applications installed than other Moto devices (D2/DX), so this list may differ from simliar threads in their respective forums.

Here is a list that I found that is safe to uninstall:

Please backup before you uninstall these, and do not hold me responsible if anything goes wrong.


Sound Recorder 2.2
Video Editor Lite 1.0
City ID 1.0.30
News and Weather 1.3.01
Backup Assistant 2.2
Backup Assistant 1.0
Yahoo Contacts 2.2
Social Networking 2.2
Help Center 2.2
Social Status 2.2
Messaging 2.2
Universal Inbox 2.2
News 2.2
Social Messaging 2.2
Weather 2.2
Emergency Alert 1.0.0
DLNA 0709.69
Files 2.2
MediaShare 1.0.0
3G Mobile Hotspot 2.2
Sticky Note 2.2
Voicemail 1.1
Voice Commands (Reset he phone if you get FC loop)
Quickoffice 3.3.67 - Motorola
VPN Client 1.0
VZ Navigator
My Verizon Mobile 5.0

I wasn't terribly thorough, so I'm sure I missed some. If you know of any others, I would love to know!

Update
Thanks to AverageCanadian for the following links:
VPN Client, Video Editor Lite, QuickOffice - mediafire DOT com/?i6dqmx5wpij6uxv
Social Sharing - mediafire DOT com/?4rgagvd9d3a0cpn
Universal Inbox - mediafire DOT com/?ktw0mnhh1ffvt47

Sorry can't post links but I'll try to sort through the thread and bring urls to this post

Thank for the list. Did you do this via adb?

I'm patiently waiting for my unlock code so I can use this phone in Canada. Guess I can pass the time by removing some useless bloat ware.

Once you achieve root with z4root (in the market), you can use mybackup or titanium backup

Alright so I attempted what you said.

Used Titanium backup, but it created .tar and .properties files for each application. So I attempted using Root Explorer and copying the .apk file from sys/apps.

I couldn't find social share, will look for it tomorrow. I created a .rar file that has the titanium backup and the .apk files

Files can be found here.
