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

Hey karbre,

you won't get around rooting your phone.

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

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:

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.

@OP

you should be asking these questions in the I9100 forum

there are all sort of easy to follow guides for you, and all the information you ever need, just use the search button

@ AllGamer
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!
