Default How to root your Xperia mini/Mini Pro // List of safe-to-remove apps

Hey guys.
I thought it would be nice to have a list going


Safe to remove apps for Xperia mini Pro/Xperia mini:
Note: Uninstalling these apps seems to be safe, they might however still remove some functions or features.
It's recommended to backup these apps to SD first, using either Titanium backup or Super Manager

How to root your Xperia mini pro (sk17i) / Xperia mini (sk15)

Method 1, using the .bat:

All credits go to DoomLord & the ZergRush Team

Method 2, using FlashTool:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=920746
All credits go to Androxyde and his Team

Both methods are basiclly the same, though for some people one might work better. It works for all versions and all firmwares

They're skins for POBox Touch, the Japanese IME/keyboard for the SK17.

You need to root your phone using one of the mentioned methods.
Then use titanium backup or Super Manager to backup stuff you want to uninstall.
Super Manager for example has an inbuilt APK manager, you could uninstall everything you want.

How can I uninstall the Japanese IME? I have successfully removed Chinese IME but can't find the Japanese one in the application lists
