Post root required

first you have to root your phone than install "es explorer" go to settings--> home directory--> type system in that box or delete text in that box than go back and go to system files --> languages delete unwanted languages.
just delete what you know, never delete unknown files.
it is better to move unwanted files to sdcard. after that you can delete if there is no problem with obsence of those files

Es becomes too laggy for me...

Or all feels this?

On latest version and still,

Around 10 to 15 seconds minimum while starting, and I even do not selected delete cache on exit option...

Need suggestions for a good root browser with good file and apps manager

Any one you know that takes approximately back up too?

I'm not using titanium for all apps...
So instead es, I may have to add another application for backup...


( used astro, but becomes poor with update I think, I don't know the recent reviews)

what is meant with languages?

only Fonts?
-> JasonPurungrit is right
but be aware to choose a language which font you have deleted!

-> decompiling, deleting the res\value\*language* directories, recompiling the framework and maybe each app

The root question is?
Why do you want to delete the languages?
Saving space?

Wrong way...
there are other and better ways to get more space

Getting bored of the languages?
just dont use them...?!
Default language is set in build.prop file. Set it correct and your fav language is used even after Wipe! No mess with additional languages at all.

So... please answer the root question as not solving your root problem, only solving symptoms may not really help you.

I use two managers.
Es and root explorer.
es because its full of features you could ever want on your mob.p and root explorer, well everyone uses it.
Es just takes a little bit more initiating time but exploring is fast unlike astro which is write the opposite.
Stock file manager My Files is very fast and has good and simple look but then its not for "playing" users really
