Here is a list of all of the APK's I've removed (moved to sdcard_ext in case I need to reinstall) and have tried to remove. I know there are a few threads on this already, but I wanted to start a thread that I could keep updated, and maybe give a little insight into what some non-obvious apks do. I have some more research to do, but my main goal is to eventually be able to list what each APK does and whether it can be removed or not.

Were these all actually uninstalled or just frozen via an app like TB
I cut/paste them to the sdcard in case I have to reinstall them.

Sorry for the late response, I moved onto the RAZR and now the Gnex.
