Phone [ATT/VZW/TMO/SPR + more] [De-Bloater / Utility / AROMA ] Ashaman v3.02 04.04.2013

This is a fancy little Aroma Installer you can flash in CWM and choose all the bloatware you want to remove from your system.
Officially supports every Galaxy SIII variant!

There are a few main selections.
Recommended de-bloat will remove everything that is recommended to remove.
Full de-bloat will remove everything that anyone would want to remove without breaking the system.
Individual sections for carrier, ATT, Sprint, Tmobile, Rogers, VZW
Customize de-bloat lets you pick inter-matching between all the sections.


Most of you should choose "Custom". This will show you the lists with Recommended all being selected already and the deeper de-bloat apps being unselected. You can modify as you see fit.
Please take note, you can "flash" this in CWM and it will do nothing until you make your selections and then tell it to. So you can safely flash it, go to custom and peruse around at all the apps it can remove. If you want to do nothing simply bring up the menu and quit the installer.

HOW TO USE:
*Note, this will wipe cache and dalvik-cache for you so you don't have to
  1. Boot into recovery, from power off [hold vol.up + Home + power] until phone vibrates then release
  2. Select Custom to modify selections of what is removed
  3. click "de-bloat" button
  4. thats it

Aroma oddities
*the color is off, not showing red it seems, everything is still perfectly viewable but just an FYI so you don't think it's your screen.
*scrolling and/or touch can be finnicky at times. No matter where you are volume keys can be used to scroll around, the back and menu keys function as expected and home or power buttons can be used to select.

Download Ashaman v3.02

New Feature
This will now ask if you would like to install the universal search enabled GoogleQuickSearchBox. Basically if you have flashed a new stock rom the universal search feature of the GoogleQuickSearch Box has been removed. If you select yes for this option, the original GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk will be installed that still retains the universal search feature.

Feedback: Please let me know if you would like more apps added to the recommended or full list. I've only added things so far that are really safe to delete. Worked off the intl thread spreadsheet of what is safe etc. but obviously made some of my own decisions for the att stuff.

Sweet - I got everything moved over, but I'm still updating the gs2 as a backup and because I just can't give up Task and ktoons... Got a sim adapter already just in case

Well there have been 13 downloads. I guess everyone so far is happy with what is being removed. I can add a few more things to the "full". More live wallpapers, things that can be easily gotten from market don't need to be included as a system app etc. (like flipboard)

Is there a list somewhere that says what is actually removed on each of the 3 settings?

No... I have on my desktop but in an app not easily pasted in here. If you flash this and choose the custom option you will see everything broken down. the recommended section will list everything removed if you just selected recommended and then the full section is what is added if you select full. Being in the custom section you can add/remove whichever. if you want to do nothing just hit the menu key and quit installation, nothing will get removed.

Ok, finally had a chance to try it (it's been a busy week) - did the custom option, and while it said it was removing everything I picked, some are gone and some are still there. I didn't go through item by item, but ChatOn is still there and Kies Air at least - the clocks are gone, AT&T Navigator, some others. Tried it twice. Anything I can do to troubleshoot? I can go through the list and write 'em down if it will help.
