All I want to do is get rid of all the apps that came with the phone, to make some space in ram.
Thanks, any info gratefully received
1) Do a nandroid backup ! Look up the post #47 of this same thread. If you mess up your phone trying uninstall blots you can recovery it easily.
2) Install Root Checker app from Google play and verify if your phone is really rooted.
The phone will be almost the same just after rooting. Actually you need root access do mod it, but it is the next step.
You can use the same ClockWorkMod to partition your SDCard creating a second EXT3 partition easily. If you use Minitool Partition Wizard instead (more difficult), you can choice EXT4 that is better. Copy your SD Card contents to PC before!
After partitioning your SD card, install Link2SD from Google Play and LINK ( I said "LINK", not "move") apps to sdcard second partition.
To LINK or uninstall native apps, you have to remount R/W the FLEX folder first otherwise it will fail. You can use Root Explorer or Root Browser Lite app to do it.
