Do you have a lists of "safe to removed" stock apps when the grand is already rooted?

Which of course it would not cause some lags or sluggish effects on the ui....

Thanks in advance....

Still it will have a binary count of 1 and the system status of "custom" so you cannot claim warranty at this condition.

Refer to the ROM threads of Balliboxer and k2wl for a list of removed apps. You can remove those apps based on their list using Titanium backup.

Theres absolutely no way Triangle away by chainfire makes binary count to 0 and system status as official. If it dose not work reset the counter again using triangle away

Samsung had added system status just recently. It is not there on the galaxy note. So we hope that chainfire et al will find a way to reset system status in the future.
