Hi all,
Just got my first Android phone (migrated from iOS to Windows Phone, now giving this a try).
It's a 2nd hand S5. Australian, Optus. Not sure if sim locked.
I reset the phone, and fully updated it (to 6.0.1)
It's got a truck load of bloatware on it, so I'd like to "fix" it. A mate pointed me here, but I really don't know where to start.

Ideally all I want is a completely clean OS, sim unlocked. Just a clean slate.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?

just root it, install titanium backup, grant it root rights and uninstall all the cr@p you dont want. Welcome to the smartphone fray btw! If my reply didnt make sense, there are tons of tutorials that describe what i said to do, or i can get FAR more detailed. I just fear spending 20 minutes typing stuff that people already know

Step 1 : Root it! Thanks.

There seems to be about 1000 ways to root it, though. Is this thread the "best" way?
