This is a simple flashable package with an updater script that will remove the following:

ATT Device Help
ATT Address Book Sync
ATT Amazon Kindle
ATT CityID
ATT Drive Mode
ATT Family Map
ATT Hot Spot
ATT Locker
ATT Messages
ATT myATT
ATT Navigator
ATT Promo Widget
ATT Ready2go
ATT SmartWifi
ATT YPmobile

Added to removeATTbloat5.zip:
ATT CodeScanner
ATT Games

This should work on either odexed or deodexed stock/rooted. I recommend wiping cache and dalvik after flashing in TWRP or CWM.

If you notice one of these still installed after rebooting - you can remove it via play store after flashing this zip, but BEFORE you do please get me the package name from /data/app/ so I can add it to the script to be removed

Looking for even more of a cleanse? @wevsspot has shared a script here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=65) that will remove above and beyond ATT bloat. Thanks!

Thanks. I'll give it a try. If it works like expected, You Da Man!!!!

Edit:
Works great, but I did notice a few other AT&T apps I would like to get rid of, " AT&T FamilyMap, AT&T Smart Wi-Fi and AT&T Messages".
Is it possible to add these to the script?

Thanks man!

Edit: Do they still show in /system/app/ when checking with a file browser?

No actually they don't. They are still in my app drawer and do still run when clicked one. Maybe I can uninstall now on google play. I'll try.

Edit: I was able to remove them from the play store and after reboot they are still gone. Thanks man. Not sure why I needed to do that, but it worked.

Before you uninstall them, Can you check /data/app/ ? If they're there, get me the package names, please

Edit: just saw your edit. No worries.

Note to anyone else who doesn't get something removed - you can remove it via play store after running this script, but before you do please get me the package name from /data/app/ so I can add it to the script

Ya Sorry. If I knew more about how things work, I would have known better and waited to see if there was anything that could have helped you first.

Hey, just used your script. I still have AT&T Smart Wi-Fi in the app drawer and both AT&T Messages and AT&T Smart Wi-Fi under installed apps. I couldn't find any remaining AT&T apk's under /system/app.

Nothing AT&T related in there either.

Edit:
My /data is empty actually.

Does this remove ATT Contacts too? So many useless features, right?

--edit:
Never mind, ATT Contacts are gone too. Great!
I still see LiveTV though which I believe is from AT&T. This app is a different one from TV with the remote function.
