I'd suggest a file manager that can explore root, such as Root Explorer. Get one and give it SU status.
Next download and install Adfree run it and install a new hosts file to get rid of ads etc.
After that, disable apps under Settings/General/ Application Manager, by clearing cache, clearing data, force stop and disable.
Now on to /system/apps to remove the bloat.
Except here's where I need help.
Which apps after you've disabled them can now be deleted from /system/apps. They don't necessarily have the same names that appear in Apps Manager in Settings/General/ Application Manager.
And what's safe to delete and what's not.
I want rid of Google Plus, Hang outs. Facebook, All Samsung bloatware except maybe touchwiz and magazine inferface and IR apps.
How do I do this safely.
How do I remove most of the bloat ware while still leaving the essentials?
Thanks in anticipation..
