[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.
will remove everything that is recommended to remove.
will remove everything that anyone would want to remove without breaking the system.
Individual sections for carrier, ATT
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
- Boot into recovery, from power off [hold vol.up + Home + power] until phone vibrates then release
- Select Custom to modify selections of what is removed
- click "de-bloat" button
- thats it
*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.

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.
