Hi all. I couldn't find a thread about this for the Z3 and now many more of us have root (thanks to giefroot) I thought I'd start one.

These are apps that come with the stock Z3 rom and can be uninstalled with no ill-effects. I used Titanium Backup to remove these having backed them up first.

Album
File Commander
LifeBlog
Retail Demo
Simple Home
SensMe Slideshow
Sketch
Sony Select
Support
Update Centre
Video Unlimited
Visualiser
Walkman
Xperia Chinese keyboard
Xperia Japanese keyboard
Xperia keyboard (make sure you have another installed and set as default)
Xperia Home (make sure you have another installed and set as default)
Xperia Lounge
Xperia Lounge Pass

I welcome any more input. There are many I haven't removed either because I want them or I'm scared to, lol.

it is NOT safe to delete the Sony Album application!
I ran into issues with camera and whatsapp. Even worse is, that I somehow can't restore it. Neither with Titanium nor with system app remover.

thanks for the list anyway.

sorry for late reply, just came back from snowboarding.
First, whatsapp had some proplems sharing pictures. Using google pictures solved that. Still, the camera app link to previously taken photos does not work. If I tap on it nothing happens. I can access the photos in google pictures app, though.

I deleted a few 100mbs and the only issue I face is an empty section in the selection tab that pops up sometimes. But it appeared after changing the bootanimation so its probably related to that. I will check after I complete the test cycle. An complete list would be nice. Maybe we can build something like that.
