Some people that dont like the preinstalled Sony apps prefer getting rid of all the bloat and remove SemcGenericUXPRes.apk from framework folder.. And some (or most) of the framework jar files beginning with "com.sony..."
This will of course bring noticeable smoothness increases, but is very likely to cause bugs when not done by experienced users.
And it could cause a bootloop on odexed builds as the odex files in system/app do no longer fit to the framework.
Just for information.
I'm just gonna use titaniums backups freeze feature, I never knew it could do that.

I don't suppose someone somewhere has listed which of the com.sony*** files are safe to disable have they?

TiBu's freeze doesnt help against some apps. They keep running in background but are no longer shown in Settings or Greenify.

Nope, but you might check any flashable "Xperia Media App port" zip. The more complete, the better.
The files that are included in framework folder are usually safe to remove.

I have yet to see this happen. Maybe you can point me to one example, since I'd like to test this?

OmniSwitch.
Add it to Greenify first, then freeze it and reboot. Check Greenify main activity and you'll see.
Was getting on my nerves for two months, till I finally decided to uninstall it.

Well, don't know why you would add it to Greenify first, makes no sense, but nonetheless, you're right. But then again, this might be due to the way OmniSwitch is integrated into OmniRom in order to use it for the Recent Apps switch. I don't remember this happening on Carbon, which also has OmniSwitch without that integration. I'm on Omni right now so I can't verify this.

In Titanium Backup some apps are red, any idea why?

I'm going to disable two of those com.sony things every morning, but most of them are red.

Most of the framework stuff cannot be disabled, it has to be uninstalled because Dalvik cache would have to be rebuilt when its gone.

I suggest trying doenen's heavily debloated 4.3 rom. Or at least having a look at its apps and framework to see what he has removed.

Titanium Backup has a help section which explains the colors. A red colored app means it's a System Service. I'm sure you can open the help section and check out what the other colors mean.

And as @WhiteNeo said, having a look at some other debloated ROM will help you decide what you can remove or not; don't disable or uninstall something just for the sake of disabling it. Find out what it's for and then decide if you need it, or if your Rom needs it in order to function properly.

If it's of any help you can use this as a reference. I made that back when I used to use Stock ROMs .

Just confirming that @WhiteNeo is right. Even on Carbon Omniswitch's process is still active even though it's frozen/disabled. It doesn't consume RAM as far as I can tell, but this is odd behavior.
