Hello everyone! This is my first post here, and I felt like this would be a useful thing for everyone in this community.
I have created a batch file that removes bloatware from the Rooted OC4 Update provided to us by muniz_ri.

To create the batch file I used the lists of programs removed by this batch file by xboxexpert and The PURGE v1 by elliwigy.

I created this batch file because the Lollipop update changed the file structure and the above files no longer work at all. Once again, the ONLY thing I did here was restructure their files to work with Lollipop. However, I would appreciate any suggestions of applications to add to the file so that we can get OC4 as debloated as possible!

Below are the applications that my batch file removes.

Thank you for this! I'm fairly familiar with batch scripts and adb executions, but can you provide some basic instructions to properly run this against the phone, and how to edit/remove apps from the removal list that we'd like to keep?

Cheers and thanks again,

So to properly run this type of batch file on your phone, enable USB debugging on your phone, plug it in to your computer. and then follow these steps:

1. Open a command prompt in the debloat folder. (On Windows, shift right click in any blank space in the folder you extracted my files to, press open command prompt here)
2. Type "adb devices" without quotes, this will bring up the prompt on your phone to allow the computer debugging access to your phone.
3. Type "adb shell" and then type "su" without quotes, and this will bring up a SuperSU prompt for the ADB shell.
4. Ctrl-C out of the command prompt.

Then, after you've done that, all you have to do is double click debloat.bat

If you wanted to customize the batch file to keep programs that you want, you just simply open the debloat.bat file in your favorite text editor, then find the application you want to keep in the file, and just delete the line that contains your application. Do keep in mind that some applications may have dependencies that are also removed by this file, so in some cases, you might not simply be able to remove just that one line.

So... shall I be the huckleberry?
I never 'shift-right clicked' before and that was pretty cool, I saw the option to "open command prompt". Holy smokes. I quit there, and thought I'd ask, has anyone tried this yet?

You do realize I'm reluctant of the hassle to fire up Odin and flash the NCG kernel and all that in and out and to and fro stuff again. My phone is just fine, but SafeStrap disappeared on boot after flashing the 5.0 OptimusROM, and I read where it said you have to start from scratch darn near. I'm liking root, but I miss that "ThePURGE" I flashed into the 4.4.4.

Seriously, when I saw the instructions I just right mouse clicked, didn't see that option until I held down shift on the keyboard. I was like 'whoa! I'm in over my head!'

I looked up ADB and it's Android Debugging Bridge. I sense a new frontier, but you know how blind you are going in on something you've never tried before, right?

So has anyone tried this debloat? Shall I be the huckleberry?

i was just about to run it, but then I checked out the bat file with notepad, and there was a lot of apps I wanted to keep, which made me questioned the other 60 unknown things. I'm not doing it. I'll look for a more advised list.

Jd254, I did not make up this list of apps to be deleted. Every app in this script has been included in two of the most known and recommended debloat scripts for the Galaxy S5, all I did was simply edit the scripts so that they would work on Lollipop, as the file structure changed and the old scripts will not work properly on Lollipop.

These instructions may not even be necessary to be honest. As long as you have USB Debugging enabled on the device, the prompts *should* come up when you first launch the script. Also, in regards to trying it, I am currently running my phone just fine with it, although I have redownloaded some apps I wish to keep such as YouTube. The nice thing though, is that if you remove the apps with this script and then redownload them from the play store, you will actually be able to uninstall them at a later time, unlike when they are preinstalled and all you can do is "disable" them.

I gave it a whirl. I never did android debugging bridge before, can't say that now! It went off without any problems, except for getting started. I switched the USB options on the S5. After I put the check into the Camera (PTP) instead of Media Device (MTP) the computer installed drivers. I also had my data turned off, and I turned that back on the S5. I switched it back to MTP and ran the command prompt. Then I got a SU prompt and granted it on the S5. So it ran the batch file thing and the S5 rebooted all by itself.

First thing I noticed is YouTube was still there. Then I went through it and wow there was a lot of crap gone, yay! Remembering what you said, you could uninstall YT later, so I tried that, and no more YouTube! Cool. I'll probably reinstall it, but it's great to see your debloat thing work. I was going to fire up Titanium Backup to freeze it all out of there, but this is much better.

Good job. Fine work.

UPDATE

I did a full wipe except SD card and a fresh install of OptimusRom 5.0 After it fired up I just clicked next skip continue until the S5 was all the way booted up, without setting anything up. Then I fired up ADB and side loaded your debloat zip. That made a big difference. Great job of getting rid of a bunch of crap!

Thanks again.

Now I can install YouTube if I 'want to'.
