Deleting Bloatware without flashing to Custom ROM

How can I delete bloatware on my TP2 without flashing out of my custom ROM? I am happy with the Stock rom but I'd just like to get rid of crap like NFL mobile, Sprint store among many others. Please help. Thanks!
P.S: Got an NIB TP2 and it rocks!

Re: Deleting Bloatware without flashing to Custom ROM

You can visit the cleanup thread stickied here to get rid of some stuff. Other stuff is built into the ROM and can't really be removed, best you could do is delete the shortcut from the start menu. See if it's able to be removed from Settings>System>Remove Programs, but my guess is that most stuff you don't want (if anything) won't be in the list.

Re: Deleting Bloatware without flashing to Custom ROM

Yeah I already tried the cleanup thread. That didn't work in terms of removing the bloatware...settings>system> remove programs doesn't do it either. SO are we all living with the bloatware? It doesn't go away unless you flash to a custom ROM huh? That kinda sucks.

Not everyone considers the stuff you mention as bloatware?

Re: Deleting Bloatware without flashing to Custom ROM

There are fewer issues with stuff installed on WM phones by the carriers because the stuff isn't running in the background (or ever if you don't use it) like stuff installed by OEM computer manufacturers. Delete the shortcuts from the Start Menu and then it'll be like the stuff isn't there.

Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 8.12; MSIEMobile6.0) Sprint Touch Pro 2)

so there is no way to make these unwanted apps appear in the remove programs list at all? i could really do without nfl mobile, nascar, mobile guide, getting started, help, software store, sprint music, etc. i have never used any of these apps ever... not on my titan, moguls, tp1 or tp2 and id rather have the free space if possible
