Sign [Q] Safe bloat ware/apks to uninstall?

Greetings member, hope your all well...

Just downloaded the stock firemware again on the phone. Running good, and good to see my internal sd and RAM not full yet. Spent a while trying to find accurate info'/links on apks/system app/bloats etc that can be safety removed.... No such luck yet.

If any one has link/info' on safe apks/system app/bloats to remove it would be nice to know, and delete them soon..

Found this page, it's not very detailed and I reckon I would need some of the apks listed http://www.droidviews.com/list-of-bl...afely-removed/

I downloaded nobloat free yesterday, says it can move the aps to ex ds them re install later. I tried, can not re install on the apks I deleted already

Any info' on safe bloat ware removal would be great. Thanks guys n ' gals

Just mean't the info' is about the weather demon apk, saw a few bits on google about the battery consumption on it, that's all. Was a 'lazy' cut n paste..

Hey DMJoh, I have deleted the windy weather apk amonst others apks, though can see the apk for deleting the stockwall live and the news wall live paper. Know where these 2 apk are 'hidden' by any chance? There not on any root uninstaller list.

Thanks for any info',

Alex

You can use any Root File Explorer apps, i personally prefer Xplore, but it depends on your mindset.. Okay, whatever, see you can find these apks in /Root/system/app. If it is there, just simply delete it. If you want a backup copy move it to some other location, say External SD.

But understand removing live wallpaper picker may sometime creates FC. But am not sure about that, see to it.

I think the apk is livewallpaper picker something like that, am not sure, search a bit in dat folder.. Also see /Root/system/priv-app. But you should be careful deleting files in that folder. Sorry i cant exactly remember the name of those apks, am not on stock now!

There is an apk called SecWallpaperChooser.apk, its the app which chooses wallpaper, not live walls, so dont delete it,
You need superuser access that you can enable in Configuration menu of Xplore.
