Bloatware Removal after ICS Update

I keep getting "Uninstallation not successful" error messages when trying to remove Blockbuster, 3D Games, Spiderman, and TeleNav from my Evo 3D.  I ran the OTA ICS update and re-rooted it.  Still no luck.  Has anyone been able to get rid of pre-installed bloatware apps?

Same problem here. Is it a software problem or does Sprint not want them removed now??

Re: Bloatware Removal after ICS Update

Last night I took a closer look at the free edition of Titanium Backup and found how to use it to remove apps.  In the Titanium Backup application, press Backup/Restore, then select the application you want to get rid of, and choose Un-Install.  I think my problem all along was that I wasn't trying to remove the bloatware apps as a root user despite that my phone is rooted.  Titanium Backup did the uninstall as a root user, so I'm in the clear.
