Question How to erase unneeded software ?

I am using stock rom. And i want to erase unneeded software like e-mail, xperia link, facebook, unneeded themes and other things.

I did disabled them. But i am just curious. Is there a way to remove it for good from stock rom ?

For most of those preinstalled apps you'll need to root your device in order to uninstall them.
After rooting, the best option should be 'Titanium Backup' (find it on Google Play), it can uninstall just about everything..
If you're rooted you can also manually uninstall apps from your device, using a root explorer.

Yes, Titanium Backup is the best tool for this, but take care, erasing important apps can damage your system!
Devices in use:
Xperia ZL eXistenZ Ultra 4.0
Xperia SP eXistenZ Ultra 3.3.0
Xperia Tablet Z 4.3 stock (waiting for eXistenZ)
