I was able to remove the bloat without doing this. I have s-off and am rooted. Doesn't having s-off grant us this anyway?

Removed bloat without this method. Oo

M8, nuff said.
My philosophy is that if your "contribution" to the community has a giant DONATE button in the center of the page? It isn't worth the download.

I didn't try it after S-OFF, but after doing this mod. Did the bloat return on reboot? If not, looks like this may not be necessary.
