Any help would be greatly appreciated !
As a post script here. My primary impetus for rooting is a burning white-hot hatred for bloat :-)
Welcome to the forum!
I am not familiar with your phone.
However, I rooted my D2 and have not installed a custom rom yet.
But I have uninstalled some of that bloat you talked about
Custom roms can be great though... some alreday come with the bloat removed.
I just haven't done it because I've been very busy lately and have not had too much time to play with my phone.
But on my previous android phones, i would install a new custom rom every other day
