Hi everyone,

Today we have a one click root tool and an unbloat tool. Both work very well and I in no way take credit for these tools.

First off is SimpleTool by hbwelch.

This tool creates a one click bootloader unlock, root, and clockworkmod CWM recovery.

It works great and I have tested all three functions.

Download: AcerA200 SimpleTool V2

The unbloat tool by Toffy seems to work well. I do have a hand full of apps that still refuse to let me remove them but at least we can get rid of most of it.

I was told this link was not in my best interest to be hosting so it has since been taken down

These developers can be found at the Acertabletforum website.

Thank you to hbwelch and Toffy for your work!

The "Unbloat" tool has a bunch of copyrighted APKs in it. It's probably not allowed here on XDA
I would say if anything it is questionable ground. The tool is only trying to remount the apps so they can be removed. It isn't exploiting the copyrighted material.

Can .apks even be copyright protected?

Download the tool zip and you'll see that the actual APKs are in there. The tool /should/ just move them via ADB. It would make for a tiny download too

That would make more sense. I didn't create the tool though. Until I am certain the tool is against XDA policy I will keep it available. I don't believe there is anything wrong legally with simply having the APK. If that were the case Titanium Backup could also be in the wrong by backing up your system apps to a user accessible location.

Well no Titanium doesn't break any laws because it doesn't upload your APKs to rapidshare:p

I don't mind the tools being available but I wouldn't want you being banned for trying to help either :p the mods can get quite pedantic sometimes. I've already had a week's ban and I didn't even upload anything illegal to xda. I think I posted a link to a forum that was deemed bad. Lolol

I hear they frown upon linking to other forums. I think I will just take your advice and take it down. It doesn't work 100% anyway. :highfive:
