Default Help to free me from the Social Feed Reader hell!

From day one, my Sony Tablet S has regularly reported the "Social Feed Reader" needs to close.

I never use this. It won't let me uninstall it as it treats it as a system app.

The other day I got a data traffic monitor, and it reports "Social Feed Reader" is responsible for significant amounts of traffic in both directions.

I have gone into settings and tried to remove permissions for this app, but it won't let me.

I wish software vendors wouldn't assume their apps are so reliable and wonderful that nobody would ever want to disable them.

Can anybody shed any light on how to kill this lemon? I'm also suspicious that it is at least partly responsible for significant battery drain when the tablet is in standby.

After root u will be able to delete this app (i think).
U can try to flash stock rom again and wipe all data too. Or maybe factory reset helps? I dont think so, but u can always try.
