What is this?
It's a zip file which can remove bloatware apps(found in system/app partition) from stock recovery. It can remove more than 20 apps within 2-3 seconds.

Why do I need it?
Assume you have flashed a new rom. You now have to go through the pain of removing dozens of apps from system/app which you might not need. eg: some people hardly use google maps/swype/youtube/email/weather.apk or those several samsung apps/widgets found in stock rom.

Okay fine, What else do I need to know
The system partition contains important apps required for android. if you remove an app which is essential for android then your device might get stuck in bootloop. So know what you're doing before trying this mod.

This is a complete list of apps found in stock indian rom(DDLK2).

What you'll need:
1) Winrar
2) Notepad++

Customizing your "updater-script" file:
1) Download bloatkill.zip from attachment
2) Open it with winrar
3) Browse over to META-INF\com\google\android\
4) Extract the file "updater-script" to desktop and open it with notepad++
5) It will look like this:
ui_print("Useless stuff cleaning start");

ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Partitions mount");
#Properly unmounting to avoid issues
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/cache");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/data");
#Then mounting
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/cache");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/data");

ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Useless system app removal");
delete("/system/app/ClockWidget.apk");
delete("/system/app/ClockWidget.odex");
delete("/system/app/DualClock.apk");
delete("/system/app/DualClock.odex");
delete("/system/app/Email.apk");
delete("/system/app/Email.odex");
delete("/system/app/EmailWidget.apk");
delete("/system/app/EmailWidget.odex");
delete("/system/app/Gmail.apk");
delete("/system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk");
delete("/system/app/Maps.apk");
delete("/system/app/Phonesky.apk");
delete("/system/app/Quickoffice.apk");
delete("/system/app/SamsungApps.apk");
delete("/system/app/SamsungWidget_ProgramMonitor.apk");
delete("/system/app/SamsungWidget_ProgramMonitor.odex");
delete("/system/app/SamsungWidget_StockClock.apk");
delete("/system/app/SamsungWidget_StockClock.odex");
delete("/system/app/SamsungWidget_WeatherClock.apk");
delete("/system/app/SamsungWidget_WeatherClock.odex");
delete("/system/app/signin.apk");
delete("/system/app/signin.odex");
delete("/system/app/SnsAccount.apk");
delete("/system/app/SnsAccount.odex");
delete("/system/app/Street.apk");
delete("/system/app/Swype.apk");
delete("/system/app/talkback.apk");
delete("/system/app/UnifiedInbox.apk");
delete("/system/app/UnifiedInbox.odex");
delete("/system/app/VoiceSearch.apk");
delete("/system/app/YouTube.apk");


ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Unmounting partitions");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/cache");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/data");

ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Finish");
6) The bold parts are important. As you can see that it deletes a number of apps from system/app in a row. This list is mine(not for you) so you have to edit it according to your liking. Refer through the first list in the beginning of stock apps and select those apps which you would like to delete.

For eg: If you want to delete swype.apk and youtube.apk(meaning swype keyboard and youtube) then replace the above bolded text with these bolded lines and so update-script will look like this:
ui_print("Useless stuff cleaning start");

ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Partitions mount");
#Properly unmounting to avoid issues
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/cache");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/data");
#Then mounting
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/cache");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/data");

ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Useless system app removal");
delete("/system/app/Swype.apk");
delete("/system/app/YouTube.apk");


ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Unmounting partitions");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/cache");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/data");

ui_print(" ");
ui_print("Finish");
7) Once you have finished editing delete rows in updater-script to your liking then hit save button(ctlr+s) on notepad++
8) Drag drop your custom "updater-script" file back inside META-INF\com\google\android\ folder in bloatkill.zip. Do not touch update-binary.
9) Winrar will automatically save the archive as soon as you do drag drop
10) Your custom bloatkill.zip is ready. You can use this everytime you flash your ddlk2 stock rom

Instruction of use:
1) Place your custom bloatkill.zip on root of sd card (root means outside; not within any folder of sd card)
3) Switch off you android device
4) Start your device in recovery mode by holding all three keys at once(up volume + middle menu + power key)
5) Select "apply zip from sd card"
6) Select bloatkill.zip
7) Select Yes
8) Reboot

The point of this thread is not give a ready made zip file.
Instead it aims to guide the reader to make his own custom updater-script file.

If you read my post again, i have clearly said that it is just an example.

This list is mine(not for you)

btw, I do personally delete google play. It's because I run another script after bloatkill.zip which installs an updated version of phonesky.apk and GooglePlayservices.apk on the system/app partition. Works okay for me.

Excellent work... just the ticket... simple, and easy to understand instructions, not like others, and who's developers are somewhat arrogant and would not listen to suggestions...

Cheers

edit:
I'm guessing it will work on all Samsung Android phones including Note 2 and Galaxy Ace 2 ?

Don't mind the haters man. Thank you for taking the time to post this, I'll be putting it to good use :good:

One question though, if I needed to use a stock recovery to flash this would it not have to be named "update.zip"?

i think you got a wrong point here.
nobody haters here
everyone that had more experience in xda always reminding anybody if they post in wrong section.
as far i know,modifying updater script better go to general,cause it's more like a guide,and i think almost all devs in devs section already know that:)

and,using recovery?
you can use any name for the zip,as long the file in root of sdcard,android normal recovery will recognize that.
i think you shouldn't namet that update.zip and choose 'apply update.zip',cause i dunno if any side effect
just play safe;)

+1 on that, i or maybe others dev is expecting something more then this simple scripting, coz he is the linux expert...a linux expert show his simple script? Is he really an expert in linux? Or can he use android sdk? See all his thread, his showing us a simple mod and trick...and when we comment its simple he just get explode :p

LESSON #99: never ask for ETA's or the mod-wannabe-guy will report it :p

Whether it's considered advanced development or not isn't important really. The content of this how-to is obviously meant for begginers and I think he successfully achieved that mark. It probably is in the wrong section but the folks at XDA deemed it a news worthy post. That's the only reason I found it anyway.

    delete("/system/app/SnsAccount.apk");
    delete("/system/app/SnsAccount.odex");
    delete("/system/app/Street.apk");
    delete("/system/app/Swype.apk");
    delete("/system/app/talkback.apk");
    delete("/system/app/UnifiedInbox.apk");
    delete("/system/app/UnifiedInbox.odex");
    delete("/system/app/VoiceSearch.apk");
    delete("/system/app/YouTube.apk");


    ui_print(" ");
    ui_print("Unmounting partitions");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");

    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/data");

    6) The bold parts are important. As you can see that it deletes a number of apps from system/app in a row. This list is mine(not for you) so you have to edit it according to your liking. Refer through the first list in the beginning of stock apps and select those apps which you would like to delete.

    For eg: If you want to delete swype.apk and youtube.apk(meaning swype keyboard and youtube) then replace the above bolded text with these bolded lines and so update-script will look like this:
    ui_print("Useless stuff cleaning start");

    ui_print(" ");
    ui_print("Partitions mount");
    #Properly unmounting to avoid issues
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/cache");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/data");
    #Then mounting
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/cache");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/data");

    ui_print(" ");
    ui_print("Useless system app removal");
    delete("/system/app/Swype.apk");
    delete("/system/app/YouTube.apk");


    ui_print(" ");
    ui_print("Unmounting partitions");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/cache");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/data");

    ui_print(" ");
    ui_print("Finish");
    7) Once you have finished editing delete rows in updater-script to your liking then hit save button(ctlr+s) on notepad++
    8) Drag drop your custom "updater-script" file back inside META-INF\com\google\android\ folder in bloatkill.zip. Do not touch update-binary.
    9) Winrar will automatically save the archive as soon as you do drag drop
    10) Your custom bloatkill.zip is ready. You can use this everytime you flash your ddlk2 stock rom

    Instruction of use:
    1) Place your custom bloatkill.zip on root of sd card (root means outside; not within any folder of sd card)
    3) Switch off you android device
    4) Start your device in recovery mode by holding all three keys at once(up volume + middle menu + power key)
    5) Select "apply zip from sd card"
    6) Select bloatkill.zip
    7) Select Yes
    8) Reboot

    Thanks, I was looking for a quick customizable way to do this.

    Recovery based flash files don't care whether the device is rooted or not. This is because the updater-script file inside the zip has codes which mount the necessary partitions before executing the rest of the code. The file i've uploaded mounts all these three partitions to avoid issues:
    Code:
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/cache");
    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/data");
    Mount command simply means accessing permission of the partition

    The above codes will work with a number of android devices. But I can also clearly define my mount command for s5360, like this:
    Code:
    mount("rfs", "/dev/block/stl9", "/system");
    mount("rfs", "/dev/block/stl10", "/cache");
    mount("rfs", "/dev/block/stl11", "/data");
    *Look at the partition table at the end of this post

    The only way someone can brick a phone is if they mount the boot-loader partition. Not all phones have similar partition addresses. So never download flashable zips meant for other phones and experiment them on your phone. Their mount codes might prove to be death(brick) codes for your phone.

    This is the s5360 partition table(courtesy doky73) - here:
    Code:
    minor     bml    stl     image
    1	/bml1	/stl1	BcmBoot.img
    2	/bml2	/stl2	sbl.bin
    3	/bml3	/stl3	bl.bin
    4	/bml4	/stl4	totoro.pit
    5	/bml5	/stl5	BcmCP.img
    6	/bml22	/stl6	param.lfs
    7	/bml6	/stl7	boot.img
    8	/bml7	/stl8	(boot backup)
    9	/bml21	/stl9	system.img 
    10	/bml23	/stl10	csc.rfs
    11	/bml24	/stl11	userdata.img
    12	/bml8	/stl12	(efs)
    13	/bml9	/stl13	sysparm_dep.img
    14	/bml10	/stl14	HEDGE_NVRAM8_RF_LE.bin
    15	/bml11	/stl15	(cal)
    I would never mess with the first five partitions. Param too

    Excellent work... just the ticket... simple, and easy to understand instructions, not like others, and who's developers are somewhat arrogant and would not listen to suggestions...

    Cheers

    edit:
    I'm guessing it will work on all Samsung Android phones including Note 2 and Galaxy Ace 2 ?
    .


    Well, finally you found a way to clean that fits your demands. I am really happy for you, but please don't confuse your own ignorance and unwillingness to read for arrogance of some particular devs.That's really inappropriate.

    cheers mate ;)
