If you find applications which are safe to remove from the ROM, please post them here, along with what functionality is lost, including which "app" as it shows in the drawer, gets removed.

I will try to compile a big list in uniform format later on. Please only post if you have actually tested it.

So.

Being a new android user, I messed around with my phone without a full understanding of what would happen if i uninstalled a core application. I assumed incorrectly that Titanium Backup would allow me to reinstall applications, and then uninstalled the stock clock application thinking that it was one of the many clock widgets.

Could someone upload their stock Clock application apk here, or advise me as to how I can restore the stock clock without having to flash the original ROM?

Do you mean this apk?
i'm no expert either but if its the one you deleted then pushing it back via adb should do the trick.

com.sec.android.app.smtsetup
com.sec.android.providers.downloads
Crash Notifier

I think its part of one of the calendar listings. One is the set of widgets and one is the calendar app. Whatever one doesn't have "open" available when you click on it is the set of Widgets.

Sorry this might sound stupid, but how do you remove the default apps (eg Yahoo finance)

I have a rooted, Galaxy S2 on generic firmware (initially O2 branded). I have root explorer installed

Yeah, already got rid of the "other" calendar, but the widget option is still there. Odd!
