Default How do you remove all the junk pre-loaded apps from Bell Samsung Galaxy?

I know this has been probably asked and answered many times but I'm new to xda community, if anybody can point me to a thread where it explains how to remove these useless apps like (bell pvr)

I use titanium backup. It is free in the Market. But be careful what apps you remove, I was told that certain apps require others to work.I just removed bell PVR and all the "social network" stuff.

When Titanium opens (Must be rooted) select backup/restore button at the top. Then scroll down to the apps you want to remove. Tap the icon then a list will appear, select uninstall.

And you are good

Enjoy your Galaxy!!

I am aware about the Titanium backup and want to remove some useless (for me) apps, but as the above poster mentioned I am not sure which ones are safe to be removed and more importantly, what do we do in case we remove an app that shouldn't have been removed... So if anyone has successfully uninstalled some of the stock apps could mention which ones?

Your best bet would be to backup the files you want to remove. You can do this in Titanium. Then after you remove the files you want to remove. After you reboot see if it works. If not then simply go back into titanium and restore the backup.

you need to be rooted, and use Titan Backup (free)

everything in RED is preloaded

some are safe to remove, some are not

so make a backup before you remove anything

not me sorry, that is one of the very first thing i deleted, since i don't use Bell TV

actually i quit TV since like 7 years ago

as soon as i found out i can watch all my favorite TV shows anytime i wanted online/offline

i still have a TV somewhere, i just get the Free Over The Air, like the good old fashioned way, with the Rabbit Antennae

If u guys dont want to do it manually, might i suggest "systemapp remover" in market. It allows deletion of the apk followed by uninstalltion of the appropriate package name.

Titan Backup does that already, it backup and then uninstall

so if you screw-up by "accident" (removing things you shouldn't) you can restore from backup
