Post Hydro bloatware removed.

I have removed with out any problems, Google music, movies, music and plus. Mobile ID, boost zone, talk, hmmmm... and a couple more. No issues. Seems to run a lot better and a better battery life. Just FYI..

Great to hear that! I've been waiting on removing anything major(?) until we have a working recovery, so I didn't want to play the role of guinea pig. lol
At least, not yet...

Thanks for letting us know!

Eco mode removed with no lingering side effects that I can see. Only suggestion is kill the process "com.Kyocera.ecomode" before uninstalling the app or u get a recurring error popup until u reboot. Still, everything seems to be gravy

it seems ICE is a part of the contact list where you name some one as an emergency contact. ICE - In Case of Emergency

you can ditch music vizualization wallpaper (dont work in ICS anyway i dont believe) and the live wall papers, musicFX (though you might want a replacement or audio is kind of plain) Bluetooth share, all of the map/gps apps.
I froze rather than uninstall, until i can make a working back-up

I froze talkback by mistake (thought it was talk) did not seem to cause any issues.

Once we have a working restore, i will wipe them entirely, i am sure that ram could be put to some other use

I have taken off most of the apps that you have listed. I'm glad that you listen on there Mobile I.D because i've been wanting to get rid of that and I didn't want to brick the device. Thanks so much for your input. Hopefully this recovery is working out well.

The only thing mentioned that i have kept it's boost zone, and music fx for my own reasons..much better now, and the battery life had improved dramatically..it's between a while and i have had zero negative side effects!

I use titanium back up off the market, but you need to root first. Once you have it installed, open it and go to back up and restore, select the app and uninstall. Be careful doing this, one its gone it history, untill we get a recovery.

best way to remove apps is to freeze and then un-install yada yads
glad to see improving the device is stable.

Thank you jmz!
Confirmed working on the Kyocera Hydro. I just did it successfully.
I take no credit for this - all thanks to jmz above, and Bin4ry, kamistral, Team FreeXperia, et al @XDA for making this happen!

Root for the Hydro -

** I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT MAY GO WRONG WITH YOUR PHONE AS A RESULT OF USING THIS. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ROOT-RELATED ACTIVITIES YOU DO TO YOUR PHONE
It worked fine for me, but your mileage may vary, so - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!**


http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1328668&d=1347724800

*Download the file above.

*Connect phone to computer, and select "Media Transfer" on the phone (go to "System", "Developer Options" and make sure "USB Debugging" is checked)

*Run the "RunMe" file in the "Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v2_win-linux" file you just downloaded, and select "3> Other" in the on-screen prompts.

*The phone will ask you to enter an encryption password... hit "restore my data" on the bottom of the screen on your phone.

*Follow any further on-screen prompts, your phone will reboot, and you're Rooted!

*NOTE*
(Still working on a Recovery atm... I will check back and report when I have it working - BUT UNTIL THEN, BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT WHAT YOU DELETE/CHANGE - WE HAVE NO RECOVERY AS OF YET)

Be careful, and enjoy!

*Edit* ~
It's probably best to wait - as stated above, we have no working recovery yet. If you add or delete something, and your phone goes nuts or you loose service, you'll be forced to do a factory reset and start from scratch all over again - IF you don't brick it altogether. Until we have a working recovery, rooting this phone should only be done by Devs and those that fully understand the risks involved, and are willing to take them while we work on getting a functional recovery.

does this bring your phone back to a new state like when it came out of the box? or will my apps & configurations remain intact?
thanks

No. It won't restore missing data or apps - all it does is root the phone.

ok, let me rephrase. I have added apps & set configurations- personalizing it.
If I root it will it resort to factory settings like it does in doing a hard reset?

thanks

No - as I said before, it should just give you root access.
BUT - if your crops die or roof falls in, don't blame me. lol

Seriously - I never owned this phone, and had access to it for only a few weeks. (just long enough to root and slightly de-bloat it. lol)
I can't help much in regards to issues some of you might have - but I'll help out all I can.

I think I know what you're trying to say, but just in case - can you please type your questions from a computer instead of your phone?
So many type on their phones - and frankly, between Auto-correct, and fingers too big for the Android keyboard... I just can't understand what many are asking.



Sorry

im thinkin maybe ill just stick to freezing an app till i can boot into clockwork.
Using an app called root app delete to disable apps, everything mentioned above but i have noticed a lttle "slowness" at times when Holo launcher reloads, and had to pull the battery a couple times when opening a app before my widgets reappear all the way, froze up but could just be my phone.....maybe watching family guy in the shower is not what the had in mind when they said "waterproof"?

for hidden apps on the hydro how are they accessed or are they simply & purely bloatware?

ie: MusicFX - I haven't found it yet (other than in Titanium)
or some Live wallpapers which are not available to choose when changing wallpapers, ie: system/media/video/sunset.240p.mp4

I know this is a something you add instead of removing but link2sd works which will give you more room. Confirmed with fat32 partition. No side effects

Removed launcher with no side effects as of yet. Done some memory tweaks still stable. And some kernel tweaks waiting to see what happens.

removed the stock sms texting app (mms.apk) since i like GOsms pro far better. hit a snag when i realized i was unable to send/receive traditional mms messages (pictures, video, audio) and restoring the stock app has proved to be impossible since i neglected to back it up with titanium. luckily gosms has a setting where you can manually enter the server info and restore mms functionality.
win



and for the record i tried using mms.apk from my full backup of the system folder, managed to push the file back into system but it still refused to install.

You need to set permissions correctly

I use root explorer. Would definately recommend purchasing this app!

i set the permissions exactly like those specified in your screenshot to no avail. i'll try root explorer but i dont know that it's much different than es file explorer as far as functionality, only interface.
