I used the ROM cleaner from the Galaxy S3 http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...emove-t1827817 to clean up a lot of the bloatware from my Tab3 8" stock ROM & it worked great. I recommend doing a full Titanium & CWM backup first, just in case!

No- I didn't try that. There was still about half a dozen items of bloatware I needed to remove manually with Titanium Backup. Anyone fancy doing a modded version of the script?

I also used Titanium Backup. And some apps not listed in Titanium Backup, like MusicHub (and any other Hubs) or Flipboard.apk. Maybe because of my region SER (Russia), so I removed it by hands with Root Explorer.

Some apps have different name and made special for Tablet and not listed in ROMCleaner.

You can easily add the apk name to the ROMCleaner_user.txt (follow the guide located in the link above)

Remember everything is case sensitive in android.
You also don't have to specify the application path, only the "AppName.apk" is enough for /data and /system apps.
