Delete them manually from system...the lazy way just won't work anymore

or flash this script which removes about 140MB or pure crapware. Rest assured that the phone can function normally even w/o them

Flash it via CWM or any other recovery you like

Hi! You can remove bloatware with RootAppDelate (need root). You find it in GooglePlay Store.
