User schoolsux has created a script to clean/de-bloat your touchwiz rom. I take no credit for this. Just wanted to share for those interested:good:

Hey folks! :cowboy:

TrulyClean is a "any rom" script that removes A LOT of crap-apps (98+ apps removed) and other stuff on the phone.
Script will remove about 600mb since version 1.3 (Counted by removing from stock firmware.)


The purpose is to give you a clean start with no extras, much like the Nexus series experience but with the Samsung core intact.
All bloatware apps will be removed running the default script. I even count apps like S Voice and Samsung Hub as unnecessary apps.
Neither do I use Earth or Google+ and don't like these apps to be forced upon me as system apps when they are so easy to install from Play store!
It might be illusion but... I found my phone booting faster and running snappier with after applying this script.
Also, I don't have to cry anymore while checking the apps in the /system folder.

I hope this script will evolve over time and include more stuff that is "not needed" to give the best experience possible.

* Please tell if you notice that this script removes something that is NEEDED aka creating FC's.
* Feel free to tell me about stuff you find that can be removed without any damage.
* Most apps that are avaliable @ Play Store will be removed as system apps!
* Use & edit the TrulyClean script at your own risk.



Installation:

Script should work on any SGS4 TouchWiz rom.
Tested on: Stock deodexed firmware, WanamLite, Omega and FoxHound.

This script's default setting is created after my taste and may remove something you use.
If this is the case, have a look at this & edit the script at your own risk:
1. Open the .zip package using WinRAR or similar and then extract the META-INF\com\google\android\"updater-script" file.
2. Open and edit the file with a decent text editor (Notepad++) and remove the lines for stuff you want to keep or go pro and add some new lines yourself.
3. Save file and put the new updater-script back into the flashable zip!

1. Use the default script or edit the script after your taste. (see "hidden "tutorial above!)

2. Copy recovery.zip to phone.

3a. For best experience - do a full wipe, install a custom rom and then flash TrulyClean.zip.

3b. Script only removes apps in /system, so you have to uninstall any updated apps manually.

4. Flash in recovery (I use PhilZ Touch) & run script after every time you flash a new rom.

5. Enjoy and tell me what you think!

* Yes, I know stuff like Samsung Account and Kies can be removed. However these are NOT proper to remove though, as both give FC @ settings.

* "I run the script but Google+, Earth etc. are still there!" Solution: Updated system apps are put in /data. Go to Settings > Manage programs > uninstall these apps and they will disappear.

Does it remove the carrierIQ bull****?
Thanks a lot.


And can someone please post a mirror? Links don't work anymore. Thanks again.

Since apparently nobody else would check, I did. Don't use this on OK3, it breaks stuff and causes FCs (sensor service being one of them).

As the source thread says, it's depreciated and can confirm to not use this.

    How much ram would this free up? Kinda want to run the script but I actually like s health.
    So remove S-Health from the script before running.

    This works great!!!!

    Hmm, did you happen to notice the original/referenced thread is closed, the tool is officially marked as "[DISCONTINUED]"?? Or did you decide to try it anyway?
