This question is often asked when people buy a new android device. So, what preinstalled system apps are safe to remove after one has rooted the Galaxy Tab?

You can uninstall these apps (or even better freeze them) using Titanium Backup after rooting using this methodthis method.

Swype
Live walpapers (all of them)
Live wallpaper picker
News and Weather
AccuWeather Clock
Home screen tips
Music Hub
Samsung Apps

Yes, protected apps cant be removed without superuser permissions.

Titanium Backup will do it. There is a new "Chuck Norris Mode" that apparently can remove even more apps.

If only there was some kind of reference list like the win 7 services library that tells you which apps rely on which other apps...

Im wondering if CP Message might be the annoying TouchWiz settings in the taskbar... ControlPanel Message perhaps?

While this was a necessary evil on my Vibrant, I am at a loss as why this again necessary on the Tab. Especially considering it comes with much less bloat IMO. What benefits come from removing these? Performance and battery life are already very acceptable to me. Am I missing something?

these are the exact names when using titanium to freeze apps... if you want to remove the apks you will have to use your head as its pretty self explanatory

by the way, i have since realised that there is no other dnla cliet for android apart from allshare, so ive resurrected drm and allshare to simplify connecting to my home media until we get cifs working on the tab
