Hi,

The Note 3 is my first android phone, so I'm a newbie. First Do I need to root the phone to remove all this crap of AT&T bloatware? I don't want to remove the Samsung apps such as the s voice, Samsung hub, etc.., all I need to is modify the script to remove the samsung apks from the list? Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: OK thanks, I think I have it figured out now! I definitely deserve the noob award for this one!

Yes, you need to root first (I used the long route instead of the one click software solution). Then install SafeStrap. Only after then you will be able to choose SafeStrap's recovery menu, and run the script/zip package from there. But make sure you make a backup before you run the script.


I just got my Note3 yesterday and edited the script a little (commenting out some of the delete commands), tried all this while leaving some stuff that I though I wanted. But after that, I encountered lots of problems such as force closing because of missing apps, and lot of features seemed to be missing (such as Samsung account sync - I'd rather sync my notes with Samsung than Evernote). I decided to go back and just restored from a previous backup and just disabled some features I don't need. Surprisingly, I found lots of features to be useful and more than a gimmick. I don't know the names, but hovering over to see the time and notifications are pretty good, answering the phone by waving my hand looks good too. Some features such as staring and eye tracking are totally gimmick so I disabled all those ones. I also turned off S-voice because I don't want it to waste battery.

Anyways, I'll pass on using the script (removes too much stuff), but I appreciate OP for creating one.

It will remove all Knox stuff + Most AT&T Stuff and Some Samsung stuff.

2. AT&T myaccount

Instructions
1. Flash it with SS
2. Wipe Cache & Dalvik
3. Manually Download *only* the apps you need/use/will ever use from Google Play

Let me know if you run into any problems

Okay so I love your script but I didn't know I needed the music app for the s-view hack to work with spotify. I can't seem to find the samsung music app anywhere. How would I go about getting it again? (If I was too dumb to save a backup)

Download this stock ROM from here

And move music related files (from system/app/ to your phone's system/app/ and reboot).

Just an FYI form experience:
Getting rid of Hub will kill screen rotation
Getting rid of Magazine will FC Touchwiz when you short press home button on home screen

As far as I understand, installing this is good if you're still on stock rom and want to get rid of bloaters. Especially since most of the custom roms already remove most of these pre-install apps. Correct?
