Default Debloating

Would those of you who have already deleted all the Samsung sh** mind sharing what all you've deleted with no ill affects? I would love to be able to eliminate everything I didn't choose to install. And are you guys are just freezing or deleting?

Thanks y'all!

I would also like to know this. If we could get a professional who knows what they're doing to direct us? There must be a million threads on freezing apps, but they're all for different devices it seems. I've frozen some stuff but it hasn't appeared to do much and there's so many apps.

Default System App Remover (root) is excellent for this.

This is excellent free app for debloating. It tells you what can be safely removed and what should be left alone and allows for batch uninstall.

Does this have any advantages over using Titanium?

Thanks for replying and the app recommendation, but looking at it, I can see that it's not exactly what I'm looking for. It says Knox is a key system resource so it's basically listening to how samsung flagged its apps "You gotta keep this! You just gotta!". A user made list would be awesome, even if it was just from a very similar tablet. I can't seem to find anything recent and therefore relevant.

Agreed. Yeah, I was hoping one of the people who said they had debloated their tab s would chime in with exactly what they deleted.

Location List of Disabled Apps

Screw it. I'm gonna post everything I've frozen with no ill effects (so far). I will update when and if the "ah hah!" or "Oh ****, please god no!" moments occur.

Wi-Fi Direct 2.1
Wi-Fi Direct share 2.1

*UPDATE 00:03 7/6/2014

Froze the following with no repercussions (yet):

Active applications 1.0.0 (It's important you freeze the one with 2 zeros, as the other will cause the Task Manager to fail. The one you freeze had a green circle with a 3 for an icon)
Bubbles 1.0 (Bubbles? We don't need bubbles...yet...)
com.android.providers.partnerbookmarks 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7
com.sec.android.app.wfdbroker 1.0.0 (Think this has to do with WiFi Direct. Again if you use anything in this list, then DON'T freeze it.)

DSMLawmo 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7 (Spen functionality?)
Help 1.0 (Everyone should know when they need this)
HTML Viewer 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7
Mobile print 4.0 (I don't print from my tablet. Another one of those things you should think about before freezing.)
MobilePrintSvc_CUPS_ 1.0 (more printing stuff, see above)
MobilePrintSvc_CUPS_Backend 20130513
Print Spooler 1
ringtonebackup 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7
WFDS Print Service Plugin 1.0.1

That's it for now, let me know if a catastrophic failure occurs on your end.*

*UPDATE 11:25 7/7/2014

Froze the following:

Adapt sound 1.0 (From what I understand, this adapts the sound profile to your environment. but I havent found an actual app to use for it, so I disabled it.)
Basic Daydreams 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7 (Do you let your tablet daydream? Yes? Then don't turn this off I guess. I work my tablet to the bone and don't tolerate daydreaming)
Camera Test 1.0
com.android.sharedstoragebackup 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7 (No idea what this does)
com.samsung.adround.app.watchmanagerstub 14.04.14 (Has to do with Galaxy Gear?)
com.samsung.android.sdk.spenv10 3.0.101 (Looks like an app for the S pen, which none of us have...)
com.sec.android.app.FlashBarService 1.0 (READ THIS!!! Disabling this app will net you HUGE performance benefits. However, you will lose split screen functionality. I think these tablets are too small for split screen, but you might use it. Do as you will.)
com.sec.android.app.minimode.res 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7 (???)
ELM Agent 14132
Enterprise Sim Pin Service 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7
Enterprise VPN Services 1.3 (Don't disable if you use VPN?)
Exchange services 4.4.2.0100
Filter Installer 1.0 (From what I understand, The Filter applications are extraneous as Google Play now performs the same functions.)
Filter Manager 1.0
FilterProvider 1.0
PickupTutorial 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7
VpnDialogs 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7 (Might be important for VPN.)
Weather 140603.02 (Self explanatory.)

You stand to gain the most by disabling the FlashBarService and therefore losing split screen. Update me with any issues.*

*UPDATE 7/24/2014

This latest update brings with it an issue (maybe it was like that before this update? Just noticed it.) The stock regular internet browser has stopped working. I could give less than a flying f**k, but you might enjoy using in.

Froze the following:

Backup 3.6.2
com.android.backupconfirm 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7
Context Service 2.0.3
DeviceTest 1.0
Gallery 4.4.2-T700XXU1ANF7 (This will cause controversy, but it was set to run all the time. I tried figuring out how to disable it from automatically running to no avail. I actually re-enabled Google+ to get the Photos app back, because it doesn't run constantly. Will look for a better alternative later.)
SmartcardManager 1.7
SmartcardService 3.1.0
Unified Daemon 140423.01

Re-enabled:
Google+ 4.4.3.69327528 (See above for explanation.)

That's it for now. My tablet is really flying. Even the notification bar does not cause a stutter anymore, and chrome seems faster yet. Really starting to love this tablet *






Anything in this list that might not make sense to you, or if you use that app, then obviously don't freeze it. Let me know if you have anything to add or inform me of what I really should turn back on.

Awesome! I wonder, is there any functional difference between the frigid and deletement treatment?

Sythrix, how's it running? Did you notice an appreciable difference?

Freezing removes them from active RAM the same way deleting does(so you get all performance and battery benefits) . Deleting will free up storage space as freezing does not. Only benefit is more storage space it would seem. A good reason though. However, don't delete anything til you're sure you don't need it.

It seems faster, but I don't think TouchWiz will ever be completely "smooth".

More RAM available, although not as much as I expected. Will have to keep at it.

Makes perfect sense. Thanks for the replies! Gonna start freezing away.
