All, I have done at this point is run framaroot, choose supersu and verified root access through root checker.
I've read about apps that let's you freeze, rename, or delete apps.
I came here for better instructions as I do not want to brick my phone. I'd prefer to do minimum tweaking if that's possible and achieve my objective.
Any instructions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, I do not use Verizon as a carrier any longer so removing their apps wouldn't be an issue.
