Default Sprint Bloatware

Hi, longtime apple user. 1st time android user. So I got an HTC One from sprint. And I LOVE it! Only thing I hate is the bloatware. So what do I do? I rooted and installed titanium back and removed it all! Was super stoked, until I had to reboot today. And alllllllll that crap got pushed back to me.

So my question is... is there anyway around this?
Or...
is there a ROM I can use that would basically keep my phone the same but remove the crapware? Like the ROM for the international version?

Thx in advance.

Most custom roms remove the bloatware. For the One and most HTC phones there are two kinds of roms AOSP and stock. AOSP roms are pure android and don't come with what the manufactures put on top of the android operating system such as blink feed and ZOE. For HTC this is called Sense. You can find roms that are pure stock with most of the bloatware removed. Or you can find some like Viper Rom that has the bloatware removed and is mostly stock but has a couple tweaks to make it a little better like a transparent pull down. Other Roms will push the envelope and will include more updated OS like android 4.2.2 or even 4.3. Most of the time those roms have glitches and won't run all your programs that currently work on your phone.

My suggestion is if you just want to get rid of the bloatware look at a stock rom or one very close to stock such as Viper. This will give you the stability and funtionality all the while cleaning the bloatware off. A link to Viper Rom can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2241016

Otherwise you can search for stock sprint roms for the One on Google or over at XDA.

If you are feeling adventurous or just want to see what pure android is about you can also search for AOSP roms in the same places.

a bit more info,the stock kernel is what keeps you from permantly writing to /system from the booted OS. search xda for a custom kernel that will add the ability to write to system,and it will also give you other features and benefits,depending on the mods to it.

i have also seen instructions to mod the stock kernel to remove the write protection that casuses all your bloat to come back.

as mentioned above,a stock based custom rom is a good option as well,since it will have a modified kernel

Thanks for the responces guys. @Recoil: Yea thats what I want, to keep blinkfeed/zoe but still get rid of all the crap. Never tried pure android, but I dont want to lose most of what made me choose the One over other android devices.
