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?

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.

Oh snap! Ok sending donation as soon as I get on my laptop!

Has anyone yet provided a step by step video by chance? I know nothing about adb stuff as I've never had to use it so reading the firewater instructions I'm a little lost :/. Haven't tried installing weak sauce root either yet, is this easy or a video? I believe i need weak sauce root installed first? Then S-Off, then I install twrp? How would I install twrp and after I do install does it then install full root then can delete weak sauce?

I'm sorry I know this literally was release an hour ago but just hate to brick my device out of ignorance and not knowing. Appreciate any help for someone like me that doesn't use adb or sure of the methods and steps here.
