Pesky system apps

is there someone who can tell me how to remove system apps to make room for new apps? I don't need some system apps as I have found better apps to do the job. I use Jorte so I don't need the calendar app, and bluetooth is an absolute waste of space on the PRS-T1. I could go one but you get the picture. Any Ideas? I am using Rupor's Absolute Minimal Root.
Thanks!

System apps are installed in system partition, all other apps are installed in data partition and every app you gonna install via market or manually will go to data partition (or sd card if enabled).

Hence, there's no benefit in deleting system apps... except if you wanna move some data apps to system partition afterwards...

All system apps reside in /system/apps. All you gotta do is remount rewritable and delete the apk and odex files you wanna uninstall.

You could also get Titanium Backup which will do that for you.

But be sure to read http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST...d_apk_packages

Thanks Uboot, I got Titanium Backup And took care of my problem. I also found that my rather extensive library was taking up space I needed. I moved that to my SD card and took care of that. Thanks again!
