Default How can I uninstall system apps without rooting the phone (Samsung Galaxy S2)

Ladies and gentlemen,

I want to uninstall unused/ preinsalled apps. Is there a way to do this without rooting my Samsung Galaxy S2 (i9100)?

Kind regards

Nope. You need root.

Ok. Thanks.

what's your opinion:
I want to install a
- a downgraded system with all necessary things (libs etc.)
- one (best) app for one task (like ubuntu you have one mail-app, one browser etc.)
- a goodlooking theme
- fast and smooth
- stable and popular

what are my next steps to "root" my phone? Is there any howto or tutorial to do this in a easy way?
Thanks in advance!

Hey karbre,

in my eyes there are two possibilities:
1) root your stock ROM and uninstall apps and apply a new theme (take care that you are using the right theme version [an odexed one for stock roms])
2) use a custom ROM

Thanks Bushido76!

you are a keen user. Can you send me some links where I can find a howto or a step by step tutorial
to root my phone?

Which apps recommends you for installing a Custom ROM
- email
- browsing
- notes/ task
- photos/ videos editing
- calendar
- music/ video player
- office

and which kernel?

Thanks.

Hey karbre,

the fastest way to root your phone is to flash a root-kernel - i.e. the CF-root kernel:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1103399

You just have to download the right verision for your rom and to flash via ODIN.

Most custom roms come with a special set of applications for the most important activities. Some samsung apps are really good - but noone needs all the apps which come with the stock rom.

Ok. Thanks, but I have several kind of questions so I thought that I put my post into general questions.

Bushido76 sent me a very helpful link.

my next question is:
Can I do all this things out of my MacBook? What's ODIN etc. and where I can get this "major god in Norse mythology"? ;)

Thanks in advance!
