[INFO/WIP] List of ASUS apps/libs/etc that can be removed 'safely?'
PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.
THIS IS WHAT I PERSONALLY DELETE
. Tested on my eeePad
, no keyboard dock
, running Prime 1.3 US version. You can customize the list based on your needs. See the 2nd list for ASUS keyboard information thanks to seshmaru
. Also keep in mind you can rename the files from .apk to .old or something else if you want to test. Or keep a copy of the ROM you are modifying handy, and just repush the apk or lib back to where you deleted it from.
Here is the list:
All listed apks can be found in /system/app
AsusSetupWizard.apk ** OPTIONAL ** Setups your eeePad from a clean install (wifi/accounts/etc)
AsusReader.apk -- Reader stuff
AWS.apk - Asus Web Storage
DLNA.apk - Local network sharing thingy, never worked for me
Layar.apk - lame
MEar.apk - music app (not the google one)
MyCloud.apk -- ASUS stuff
MyGazine.apk -- ASUS stuff
MyWater.apk -- ASUS stuff
PCSyncLauncher.apk -- Annoying sync thingy when you attach USB cable (optional)
PixWe.apk -- Asus Cloud Storage Picture App
PolarisOffice.apk -- use google docs, or keep this (optional, keep related libs below)
PRAndroid.apk -- 'PressReader' for Newspapers/Magazines
StrAsus.apk -- it says asus, deleted. Something about "SplashTop"
Vibe.apk -- something stupid, music related.
Weather.apk -- asus weather stuff, optional
-- Provided by seshmaru --
Phone.apk - we can't make calls on this thing anyways.
HTMLviewer.apk - broken anyways.
PicoTts.apk - text to speech for android. (Causes Text-to-Speech FC in Settings)
TtsService.apk - Also text to speech. (Causes Text-to-Speech FC in Settings)
/system/lib/libereader.so -- I believe this is AsusReader related.
/system/lib/libpolarisoffice.so -- huge office lib, deleeeeeeeeete (keep if you keep PolarisOffice.apk)
/system/lib/libpolarisoffice_Clipboard.so -- more office.. (keep if you keep PolarisOffice.apk)
-- provided by seshmaru --
system/lib/libttspico.so (Causes Text-to-Speech FC in Settings)
Keyboard & Dock information thanks to seshmaru's post
Here's a list for the keyboard files.
Needed for software keyboard:
Needed for dock keyboard:
You can remove all of the dock keyboard stuff and have the asus software keyboard still work and vice versa.
You can delete these while the system is running, but expect odd behavior and force closes. Rebooting should fix, you might have to force a power off, or use 'adb reboot'.
Ringtones: We have a full set of ringtones included. We should be able to delete all of these and save more space, but not sure if anyone has a use for them. These are RINGTONES and not NOTIFICATION sounds. These can be found here: /system/media/audio/ringtones -- it's only 2MB so probably not worth it.
This should be considered a work in progress. My list has not been tested while using the ASUS dock. It also has not been tested on builds, such as the WW (worldwide?) one. Consider this US builds only.
