Lists of apps which may be removed safely have been provided elsewhere on this forum, I have taken a list from the AngeloM thread and created a script which may be run each time a new rom is installed to remove all Samsung apps.

Pre-requisite: You need to be rooted!

1 - Install script manager which is free from the market (https://market.android.com/details?i....scriptmanager)
2 - Copy the attached script file to your sd card. You may edit it to add/remove apps as required.
3 - Start script manager, point it to my script file and tick to box to run as root.
4 - Run :)

That's it.

Thanks mate!

But your script had some problems to quit running

Edit:

Found a typo: rm /system/app/SamsungWidget_. ews.apk -f

And probably a remount ro and some status-echos would be neat

My unix scripting skills are pretty poor ;-(

I've fixed the typo and re-loaded.

Well, I'm currently at work

Maybe I'll put up a better script, when I find the time this weekend
Would be easier, to make a list of the apk's and then go through every element with a for-loop.
But as this is a quite simple script, it's not that necessary to make a beauty out if it...

Ah, by the way, the script didn't finish here. ATM I don't really know why. Will go through it, when I find the time


Thanks for the nice list of removable Software

That should do the job as well. More than one way of skinning a cat :)

Just makes it easier than having to do it manually (especially after loading new rom).
