Default Tmobile galaxy s 2 needs a root to remove bloatware

Well the phone is pretty fricken awesome but desperately needs a root to remove some of the crap bloatware that came with it from Tmobile. Used super one click root on my old galaxy vibrant and it worked great. Hope theyll update it for the newer galaxys s 2s

I never rooted a phone before. But for me, I just created a folder in the Apps screen, then put all these extra unwanted apps in that folder. I never see them again. It doesn't bother me.

But I still want to root the phone so I can have WIFI tethering agian.

You don't need root for tethering.

See "metekamil"'s post in Android Central forums, "No more free wi-fi tethering...". Something about a proxy application...?

My GS2 is running 2.3.5 and I rooted it. Very easy and I delete lots of bloatwares.

Superonclick is the best way to do it. I downloaded the program and plugged my phone in and clicked root. Then my phone was rooted. I found it on an xda forum

I flashed EaglesBlood and bloatware is all gone. Stable, fast and good battery life.

Default My app removal for Galaxy S2

Hi guys, newbie here! Sort of, I came here from the Prevail. Upgraded my phone to the galaxy S2 via t-mobile and I’m so happy.

The following are apps that I either froze or uninstalled safely using the pro version of Titanium Backup. All apps were backed up first with Titanium Backup.

***Please keep in mind you have to be rooted in order to use Titanium Backup.***

***also remember if anything goes wrong with your phone you can always restore your phone to the original setting (like it was out the box) using your backup in cwm. (at least thats what the restore did for me)***


411 & More - uninstalled
AllShare 2.0 - uninstalled
asphalt - uninstalled
bonus apps – uninstalled
Email 3.0 - uninstalled
google play book - uninstalled
lookout - uninstalled
More for Me - uninstalled
Slacker - uninstalled
t-mobile name id - uninstalled
t-mobile mall - uninstalled
t-mobile tv - uninstalled
video chat - uninstalled
zino reader - uninstalled

telenav - freeze (frozen)
wifi sharing – freeze (frozen)
wifi sharing manager – freeze (frozen)

Everything else works as I like and I might update this with more app to freeze or uninstall.

Default Running Apps - Ram Usage

Also, I noticed a change in ram usage (in running apps) before and after my “freeze and uninstalled” apps.

Before my Freeze and Uninstalled Apps
132MB without Bluetooth enabled and 155MB with Bluetooth enabled.

After Freeze and Uninstalled Apps
114MB without Bluetooth enabled and 135MB with Bluetooth enabled.

Hope this tidbit helps the curious mind .

Seems with T-Mobile rooting is simply the way to go since there is so much bloatware and the fact that ics will really not come soon so custom roms are where it will be. Anyway I think I will be rooting soon.
