Hello All,

I purchased a Tab 3 7.0 and after applying root and installing titanium back and am wondering which APKs are safe to remove. I've gotten rid of the music player, music hub, the samsung app store, and there video player.

I was hoping we could get a list together to see what other systems apps are safe to remove.

Thanks!

Good first removals.

I use root explorer, go into system/apps and start marking the apk and odx of files I know I don't/won't use. I move them to my sd card in the "bloat" folder a few at a time and have not seen any issues. 340 MB and rising in there now.

Thumbs up Thanks it works
@vlucchetti

First thanks for that link it was helpful
I can confirm that almost everything on the list from the link can be safely removed, mind you not everything on the list was installed
I went from an average of over 25+ things being open in memory to 13+ after that cleansing.

To see whays running in vackgroung go to app manager in settings and swipe to go to running apps window
The ones running can be seen there
Also the cached apps the app processes tht h been stored in ram for faster multitasking can be found by clicking on cached apps on the top cornee

See the helium script in dev section it is a cwm flashable package to remove bloat

If u wanna find out yourself
Id suggest freezing apps then see if there r any problems then make a backup (if u r still unsure) and safely delete the app. So if u find the need u can just restore it

That list is exactly what I've been looking (unsuccessfully) for.

Thank you
