Its totally depend on you...
U can try it urself and give us feedback so that it may help some othar user....
One suggestion if u r doing it then do it in full stock mode ie nothing removed/freezed and nothing installed beside superuser..(not even busybox uninstall it)....

Hello, I had a rooted (lgp?n method) p769 T-Mobile with the original 20f software. the new ota came out 20h and asked to download and install. of coarse I said no and did a backup first. then I installed it. But prior to that, I heard people with this phone loosing the system updates option(setting-about phone-system updates) that option wasn't there after they rooted but it was there for me. anyways I did the update and it rebooted as it said "updating apps" well after it booted, I first checked root and it wasn't there. so instead of running lgp?n again, I just downloaded supersu from Google play and installed it. did a root check again and I had root.. so I didn't have to run lgp?n. just ran supersu. worked fine

Hence never try ota afterwards...

yup your right, because it is just updates. It wants to update files that were deleted. I would install factory rom then update ota then start your cleaning of the bloatware.

If you have found other apps that are safe to remove with NO adverse effects, please comment, and I will update the OP.

FROM POST 10, by chicguy
+ Update from carriers (OTA updates) will not work after removing even one of the bloatwares. Disabling the apps will not affect OTA updates however.
+ Don't just remove thing because of the sake of removing it. Know your stuff!

The purpose of this is to show you how much junk you can remove from stock rooted. Most of this stuff can be reinstalled from the Play Store if you want it back.
I would suggest removing ANYTHING that can be donwloaded again later. This gives you full reign over the app...Not just it's data and updates.

YOU, not me or anyone else, accepts all risks. You have been warned

Here's the List:

411 and More - com.tmobile.d411
Amazon -
Application Manager - com.lge.appbox.client
Bonus Apps - com.tmobile.bonusapps
Browser -
Caller Tunes - com.tmobile.callertunes
Chrome -
CMAS - com.lge.cmas
Email -
Email Widget -
Facebook - com.facebook.katana
Favorite Contacts Widget - com.lge.sizechangeable.favoritecontacts
Feather - com.lge.livewallpaper.feather
File Manager - com.lge.filemanager
FileShare - itectokyo.fileshare.ics20
Game Base - com.tmobile.gamebase
Games -
GMail -
Google Play Books -
Google Play Magazine -
Google Play Movies/TV -
Google Play Music -
Google Plus -
Home (Only if you have another installed first)
Home Chooser
Home Theme (3 of them) - Leave these alone. Your experience may vary, but whenever these are
removed, the HOME app is auto installed again for some reason

LG MLT - com.lge.mlt (Feature in secret menu 3845#*!!!#) (!!! = Your model number)
NOTE: I personally remove this. Most will opt to simply disable it.
Additional Notes: "MLT", per default is enabled, and probably serves purpose to help LG with
remote support, but it tries to track all your activity and logs GPS position together with the
details gathered, and that includes calls, apps starting, removing etc...
This information is stored on the /mpt partition, in the MPT_MainData.db file. This file only
logs what is in 4.1.2 for some reason.

Final Notes: Some users have reported faster response, and in some cases more free RAM. Your
results may vary. Remove/Disable at your own risk.

Lookout Security - com.lookout
Maps -
Mobile Life - com.tmobile.highlight
Photo Album - com.lge.sizechangeable.photoalbum
Picasa Uploader -
Polar Bear - com.lge.livewallpaper.polarbear

thanks Thanks for the list. I knew there were certain apps that shouldn't be uninstalled, (my phone p769 t-moble original rom 20f then rooted. the update came out 20h but I went back to factory rom because to update with deleted files may cause a big problem. then I updated and rebooted and now deleting apps). Anyways, so if you don't know, well don't do it.. thanks about the lge.mlt description. First, I checked my available rom and got that number and wrote it down.. then I froze the lge.mlt file and it freed up a small amount of rom. then I uninstalled it (backing up of coarse) and rebooted. check again and I gained some more. it wasn't that much, but I did gain. most importantly, ive been running my phone without the lge.mlt and its been running good. no problems yet..
