HI. I was wondering if I can delete the apk's in my root app folder after it was install to save space or do I need to keep theme. I have over 2gb of data in the app apk folder and I was looking into free more space by deleting theme. so can I ?...

If you want to run Sony firmware but want it a bit less bloat then try DoggRom or monxDIFIED (I think monx has some removed, but cant see what)

Apk's are program files so if you delete them they don't work. There's a thread somewhere about which system files you can delete safely http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...46176101<br />
You can uninstall themes etc normally through the app manager.

It's not like windows where you get an install file that you can delete afterwards.

If you are rooted then just go into /system/apps and delete the ones you want.
Then head to /data and delete the core apps you don't want. Its easy.

Just make sure you know what you're deleting. Lord made a list of ones that can be deleted and those that require other lib files so shouldn't be deleted.
