And the phone worked again. Why am I not able to remove this file? My wife wanted screenshot, so I had to learn how to root our phones. Now I am interested in learning about this.

She just wanted screenshot, and longer batt life? She does not want me to f her phone up. The way I see it I can upgrade phones if needed. I have spent many hours over the last 2 weeks learning how to do this without fkn our phones up. I got lucky today and was able to fix it, but how do I make sure that I do not brick my phone?

Use No Bloat app to remove system apps.It will automatically back up apps before deleting.

Also, before you mess with it, make a backup in recovery. That is much easier to restore to.

Here's my suggestion. Take everything off that you don't want; any apps, games or Widgets. If you don't know what something is its probably safer to leave it!

Or you can even make a Nandroid backup and remove everything you want. If something screws up, restore from your Nandroid and don't remove what messed it up. trial and error

Use root explorer and instead of deleting apps, just rename them from .apk to .bak so they can't run and use ram. That way if you screw something up you can just rename it back.
