To begin I'm listing what I have disabled/turned off from the stock rom, and I'm getting a better battery life and see less junk.
AT&T Hot Spots
AT&T Mobile Locate
Business card recognition
Caller Name ID
Google Play Books
Google Play Games
Google Play Movies & TV
Google Play Music
Google Play Newsstand
HP Print Service Plugin
Samsung GALAXY Apps Widget
Samsung Link Platform
Samsung Print Service Plugin
Samsung Push Service
Note: I'm not using any of the apps/services listed above, and I have not run into any problems. If you are going to use them then don't disable them.
Battery life has increased enough to be noticed, but not dramatically.
Next Project: Make an Odin flashable DeBloated stock ROM in both rooted and unrooted versions.
I got a full Stock ROM download from Samsung Kies to start Debloating and adding Root using Android Kitchen.
This file contains four files:
System folder is located and the apps listed above deleted from "AP_G900AUCU1ANCE_964333_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI _CERT.tar.md5"
Also ran this through the Kitchen and got it rooted, signed, zipaligned, ... (Choosing the lazy option for now) and got my output .Zip
1- the Android kitchen .Zip file is flashable using a custom recovery mod. e.g. CWM or it's PhilZ version, which isn't currently available for this phone.
I don't have previous experience that these .Zip files can be flashed through Odin. So I assume it won't work.
2- Cannot put the System folder I Debloated back together to get accepted and read by Odin.
