Underlayment removal and trim

Are there any tricks to remove the underlayment from the trim or do I have to remove the trim? I tried to remove the trim and the drywall is not the best to pry from. This is due to water damage from the leaking toilet. Also, there are some areas where it is not as flat as I would like it, as well as where the joints are from other boards. What do I fill these areas before priming and laying the new floor? I have the peel and stick square linoleum tiles to put down.

Thanks,
Tom

That looks like the sub floor, not an underlayment. If you are going to use peel & stick, I would remove everything including the trim & start clean.

I removed most of the particle board. What you seen most in the picture is the subfloor. Around the trim is the underlayment I am attempting to remove.
