Default Safely Removeable Bloatware

So no one bricks their phones... Many of these are self-explanatory and you can figure most out from the icons, but better safe than sorry.

These are located in /system/app so don't go deleting things you're unsure of.

Easy-WiFi-android-4.0.136.apk - MetroPCS Easy WiFi
(You could leave this intact as it circumvents the login procedure at SOME public hotspots (such as Starbucks))

Metro411_V1.0.7.1_02042011.apk - Metro411

metroappstore1.5.apk - Metro App Store
(You may want to leave this if you want to rebloat your phone, but otherwise useless)

MetroBackup_1.70.apk - Metro BackUp
(We have droids, our contacts are safe with the benevolent Google, as long as your account is set up)

MetroPCS_Visual_Voice_Mail_3_14_04.apk - Visual Voice Mail

MetroSTUDIO_v1.00.30_Build30_03302011.apk - MetroStudio

MyExtras.apk - My Extras
(They're extra annoying)

MyMetro.apk
(May consider leaving as it allows you to view account info, but can be removed)

Samsung_R720_IMandSocial_V4.0.8_build0203.apk - IM and Social
(AIM, Facebook, Twitter, crap like that)

SamsungR720_MetroNavigator_4.9.1_Build_86_04252011 _rel_signed_PROD.apk - MetroNavigator
(We have Navigation for this)

ThinkFree.apk - ThinkFree Office
(May be useful to some people)

z7-android2x.apk - Mail@Metro
(Not necessary unless you don't use Gmail)

Hope this helps!

I removed all of the following with no issues:

app store 1.5
books 1.3.4
email 2.3.4
google pinyin 1.3.4
im and social 4.0.8
korean keyboard 0.76
m studio 1.00.30
magic smoke wallpapers 2.3.4
mail@metro7.56
metro backup 1.70
metro navigator atlasbook_4.9.1.86
metro411 1.0.7.1
metropcs easy wifi 4.0.136
myextras 3.0.13
talk 1.3

Thats 15 crapware applications (possibly with the exception of talk & books, if you use these) all removed.

Its nice seeing only the essentials in the applications folder.

EDIT: If anyone here has titanium backup PRO and can freeze voice dialer and voice search, let us know the result. I am wondering if these can be safely removed from the Phone.

Also, does anyone know if its possible to remove Latitude and Places? Titanium backup doesnt list them as individual applications. Are they part of google maps? If so i guess im stuck with them.

Titanium Backup can remove bloatware, but be careful, don't want to uninstall anything that is important or needed, like I did.

My admire had a problem with me removing mymetro. It would reboot and when I would click the home button to access anything it would reboot again. I think I tried removing it with Titanium so maybe I should use root explorer instead?

I'm not sure if you should remove Talk. I heard that its needed for certain things for google.

Not true. You can delete google talk if you want to and it wont cause you any problems.

I have heard of people being unable to access the web after deleting my metro however.

you can delete talk, voice search and voice dialer. if you delete metroweb without having another browser installed it will keep you from accessing the web, so make sure you got another browser goin.

Hello all. New to the rooting process. Have a question. I rooted my phone and opened up the file manager to remove some bloatware, but when I do, I get an "Error Deleting Files." Or when I try to uninstall, I get an "Uninstall not Successful." Can you help me out on this?
Thanks

You cant delete bloatware with the stock file manager because of its inability to remount the partitions from ro to rw.

The easiest & safest way to remove bloatware is via titanium backup. This program will allow you to backup all the programs on your phone, so if you delete one that screws things up you can restore it without hurting the phone.

Google talk is needed to download from the market. And yes have another browser downloaded and installed if you delete the stock browser. You also can delete all the calendar apks including the sync one. Theres 3 or 4 total google calendar apks

OMG I loved my phone when I just got it, now I can't believe it, battery last 24 Hrs not standing by... Using it. This phone has 5 stars from me, coming from an ascend the difference is incredible since it is only 200 more Mhz and multitouch.

I got rid of the Browser as well since I use Dolphin HD, got rid of the Live wallpapers (all of them) since will only make phone slower and eat the battery.

And also got rid of myMetro (you have to reboot the phone once you erase or move this apk to the SD card since it will keep telling you the app failed to load, but after reboot all is good)

I didn't erase all the aps, I just move them to the folder I called MetroCrap on my SD card (if they are not on the app folder they will not load, same thing as erasing it, but the chance to add them back anytime if needed).

BTW I used Root Explorer to move/erase the aps, I find it very simple to use so well worth the U$S 4.

Hope you guys enjoy your phones as much as I'm enjoying mine, have fun rooting

I just uninstalled MyMetro, and my phone is now giving me this message nonstop:
"Sorry! The application com.nuance.nmc.sihome (process com.nuance.nmc.sihome) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
I can't do anything without it popping up now. Help?

EDIT: LOLjk, reboot was needed. Thanks.

I have delted
Android live wall paper
Books
Google Search
Live wallpaper picker
maps *which also removes latitude and places*
Metro Navigator
Metro Pcs Easy Wifi
News and Weather
Swype
Talk
Voice Dialer
Voice Search
Youtube
Have not had any problems. I can still download from the market even after removing talk. So that can't be true. I only left Virtual Voice mail and my metro (which i rarely use, but doesn't take that much room)
I have 80 megs of free space on my phone! Moved Facebook and other installed apps to my sd card. Have no problem with my phone.
Oh and I'm a total noob! First time I've ever done anything like this!!

Absolutely not!

> Certificate Installer
Nope.

> Dialer
Go ahead, just don't expect to call anybody. ^_^

> DRM Content Launcher
I wouldn't recommend it.

The phone has to reboot if you delete the bloatware to ensure that your phone stays running properly. (It was a system app.) Just don't delete anything not mentioned within the first few posts, otherwise you're likely to brick your phone.

Hey guys new guy here to rooting and such. I got it all rooted and everything but I am trying to remove the bloatware and I used two methods.

1. Remove with Titanium Back Up when I did this the phone rebooted and such but when i went back the program was still there what gives.

2. When I tried with file manager it did the same thing and yes it does have super user permissions.

Any help regarding this would be awesome thanks!

Which bloatware have you tried to remove, the metro apps?

Also try going into your root explorer or settings and uninstall apps by long pressing them and see if it will let you. I havent had an issue removing anything so these are just ideas.

if someone can somehow post a rooted with removed bloatware rom asap i would greatly appreciate it. i am going to work on a custom project that will allow us pretty much the same device as the admire on the $40 plan and/or their 4/$100 plan until the end of the year. this will include aws aka 1700mhz and 3G (EVDO.) you can see time is running out. this will work in all markets, i repeat, all markets. i will gladly give props to who posts the rom and also a full guide on how to make this happen thanks in advance!

I have almost the same thing as create a ROM. With one click, you get a rooted phonoe with the bloatware removed. I did this by modified the one click BAT file include scripted commands that delete all of the bloatware.

You could continue to modify the script to push other apps that you think belong, such as how it is modified to push superuser.apk onto the phone.

Can anyone tell me if they have successfully removed the stock browser without having market issues? I did that to my lg and it made the market crash. Any other issues with removing the stock browser?

Talking Metroweb

Thank you all for the list of garbage that you can remove from the phone without bricking it. I have seen that some of you have removed the metroweb. I use Dolphin HD and want to remove the metroweb browser. I use Ti Backup. How is the metrobrowser listed so that I cam remove it as well? I only have one bookmark that is not in the Dolphin browser but that is easily changed.

Thank you in advance for the information.

Thank you again for the list of all the garbage that can be removed/moved from the phone without it bricking. My phone is so much faster now and I do not keep getting the annoying error that I am running out of storage on my phone. I had 19M free. Now I have like 50M free. Moving Facebook to the SD card helped.

If you download the pay app bloat freeze you can freeze any app to the point were the system will not even see in the installed apps or the app menu, and still speed up the phone without the worry of bricking your phone. If anything goes wrong just unfreeze your last app frozen and problem solved.

Default Root or not root?

OK, so I followed the procedure to root the Admire (after several hours of frustration) and finally got Titanium pro to show that I have root access (as well as root explorer with r/w access) in all folders. I can delete the apps in /system/apps but when rebooted, they come back. What am I doing wrong here?

I believe this thread is for the Samsung Admire in which case removing the "my metro" bloatware is safe and has no side effects. May want to look through the Esteem threads to see what you can/cant remove on that device.
