with tibu pro,you can freeze bloatware before deleting it. you can also do batch backup and restores of all your user apps,wich will come in really handy once you start flashing roms.
if you want to try a different app for bloat removal,just make sure it has an option to temporarily disable,or freeze,apps so you can run the phoen a couple days and make sure that things youve selected wont affect normal operation of the phone. after that,they can be permantly deleted.
-make a nandroid of your stock setup with all the apps
-make periodic nandroids of your setup as you delete things. that way if something goes wrong,youll have one to restore that you wont have to start from scratch with the freezing/deleting
Yeah trtr's got me hooked on the 4ext - so I've got a backup of my stock image, the only problem here is that I don't have the money at the moment to fork over for a premium key for Titanium Backup. I do however have the app "App Quarantine" which sounds like it does similar, I'm assuming if I backup all the apps that I plan on freezing/removing with Titanium Backup then use App Quarantine for the time being to freeze the apps - I'd have a good combination.
My only worry is what apps are safe to freeze? I heard one of the Vzw apps will put me through brick.
Here's the apps I have in Quarantine so far:
Should I unquarantine these and back them up with Titanium? Then requarantine them?
