Oh man, I just posted this in the bloatware thread, I will ask for it to be removed.
here is my post

Samsung bloatware is a real pain in the ass, you have to delete lots of it to free up cpu cycles, memory (and battery life). I have seen spreadsheets of lists of samsung apps/services and what they do for other samsung phones in the past and these are really useful as you know exactly what to 'freeze/remove'. There are so many apps & services, its almost impossible to determine what you lose by removing 'stuff' and wondered if anyone therefore has any information...

I have 'frozen' the following, some of the new funky stuff doesn't appear to work but most things do (and I have about 430Mb free after killing everything) I am using LF2 with CFROOT 6.2

If anyone could provide any definitive knowledge on what each app/service does, it would be great.

If you remove them and reinstall your rom then you need to do it all over agian. f you freeze them they stay frozen. Of course you could use ti backup to label all unwanted apps first so they're quick to find and remove.

Does anyone know what DSMLawmo does?
This service starts when my phone boots.

Is it safe to remove?
