    Bloatware

    Please note that since we now have root there are a lot of folks screwing up their phones by deleting what they perceive to be unnecessary apps and services. Please do not delete this stuff. A lot of it can be disabled in Settings/Application Manager and all of it can be frozen with Titanium Backup. Or you can use a file manager such as Root Explorer to make a copy of each file and then rename the main file by appending something such as xxxxx.bak or xxxxx.old. All of these methods share the ability of easy reversal. Deleting a file is not so easy to reverse.

    Here's a list of the apps/services I have frozen successfully (well so far it's successful - only time will tell for sure):

    I will update this list if I find others that can be frozen/disabled or as I find issues with any already on the list.

    ETA: Do not freeze Media Storage (That sure seems like a real "DOH!!" moment now doesn't it?) I mean what are notifications if not MEDIA??

    Just found that settings/sounds is force closing when attempting to change a ringtone. I haven't found which frozen app is causing it. Will post tomorrow morning after I find it.

    I did a quick "unfreeze all" and problem disappeared. Will refreeze apps one at a time in the morning to isolate problem.

    Good Night!

    I have been saying for a long time that (for noobs) rooting their phones then going on a deleting spree, removing what THEY consider to be bloatware, is a ticket to disaster. Far better to either freeze the apps via Titanium Backup or simply ignore them. Unless those apps are causing problems, you're better off just ignoring them, as the space you gain by removing them is really not that great.

    UD so true...I always recommend freezing and like BFF if you have issue you can undo and trouble shoot...I've left all apps unfrozen since I rooted a few days ago...I eventually will get to some but they really don't bother me as ignoring them is ok to me right now...

    As noted in edit to post #1, the problem I had with the Settings/Sounds ringtones was the result of freezing Media Storage. This seems to be total "DOH!!" moment now, but it was the result of freezing an app based on someone's success in doing so.

    Let's be careful out there!! (Is anyone else here old enough to know that reference without Googling it???)
