I have a rooted Nexus One and want to remove some of the pre-installed applications, like Amazon MP3, for example.

What is the best way to do this?

Your list of safe apps to remove seems to be from a Sony-Ericsson phone? Not sure that most of them would be relevant to someone with a Nexus One phone? Rather than that it would probably be more helpful if you could expand on how to install and use Titanium Backup for removing apps, and how to work out which apps are safe to delete. –  GAThrawn Feb 24 at 14:18
    
BEWARE: Before you go to remove apps you think might be safe to remove, always try freezing them first (to see if they're really "not essential"). Next, always make a backup of them with TiBu (as removing is still "stronger" than just freezing), so Justin Case has something to restore from. Got enough requests on "accidentally removed... where can I get...". –  Izzy Feb 24 at 14:58
    
I wouldn't know what apps are safe to remove but you could try what @Izzy suggested. As for how to use titanium however you could check out this link. Its a Titanium backup user guide. –  Eric Feb 25 at 14:06
    
@Eric nice guide, huh? Originally written by me, but Joël meanwhile updated at least parts of it :) Btw: Mind to apply some formatting to your answer? Hard to read as it is now. –  Izzy Feb 25 at 14:10
