SAFE-TO-REMOVE SYSTEM APPS OF KITKAT


Together, we can compile a list of safe-to-remove system apps. I will start the list based on my own experiences with removing/freezing system apps within kitkat without finding conflicts such as force closes.

I know there are many more, so please add your confirmed ideas to this thread! I will add info on more safely-removable system apps to this post as comments with app names are given!


If you modify any files on your phone based-on this thread, it is your own responsibility for any problems which may occur afterwards! This list is going to be based on what i've done so far using NoBloat.

What would be most helpful is if - along with the list - a brief description of what the app or service does. This will make it a lot easier for an individual user to choose to keep or throw 'Application X'...

No need to be rude about my request. For the next three days I have my daughter staying with me, so researching each individual component of Kit Kat 4.4.2 won't be high on my list of priorities I'm afraid. Once I have her back to school I'll get right on it, scouts honour!
