Barebone Android (stripped system/apk folder)
Edit : I mean system/app folder for the title.
I manage to strip down my Android to bare minimum, and so far I'm VERY happy with the result.
My device is Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8000) but I suppose it is applicable to other Samsung or even any other Android devices (probably custom ROM too) , since I did cross research to wide varieties of stripped devices (including S series, Sony and such).
So far the debloating guides I've encounter don't go this far. I'm left with 68 files within system/app folder.
Google doc spreadsheet :
As I remember, his spreadsheet was one of my resource to find the useless apps. I will attempt to compare both spreadsheets, and maybe add some more infos to mine.
Scribd link (also attached as PDF) :
I shared the google doc to public with editing permitted.
So if you're planning to debloat on your device or have complete infos on each apk, you can add it up there so might help anyone attempting to debloat their devices.
Keep in mind, I use my tablet for laptop replacement, which means I don't use it for phone, sms and such (altho they're still working properly) and I disabled contact sync too, so I'm left with contact list stored within my SIM/phone.
I don't use GPS on my tablet too, so I removed GPS location through network (but it still working as well)
I have hardware keyboard at my disposal so in that table I removed SamsungIME.apk since I can use my hardware keyboard for initial setup and such.

Enjoy, and cheers. Hope this helps.
