Default I'm rooted and superuser is installed....remove bloatware??

Hey all,

Just rooted the phone today and installed superuser. Hoping to remove all the bloatware on my Verizon note 3, but when I go to uninstall the app it still only let's me uninstall the updates.

Can anyone help out?

Thanks!!

You want to freeze bloatware, not remove it.

Just in case you screw up and the app you removed actually went to something else and now your phone won't dial out or the phone book doesn't open.. you can get it back fast by unfreezing it.

You need another app to freeze. Titanium Backup is what most people use but you need to pay for it for all the freeze/unfreeze features.

Let me ask you this. Now that i have root, supersu, and titanium backup...is there anything preventing me from installing custom roms on my note?

Nothing preventing you at all.

Assuming since you are rooted that you have safestrap on your device?

This will allow you to install custom ROMs. There are certain ROMs that will help you get that free of bloat feel.

The best one that I know achieves this is ObjectiveROM, I am on it, and it literally comes with nothing

Awesome, thank you for the advice!

I have safestrap 3.72 installed. Haven't made a backup yet, though i will before i start tinkering.

Looks like only the stock rom slot is working right now. Hopefully that gets resolved soon!

It's just because 3.72 is a beta of safestrap, they will have that issue resolved as soon as a RC is ready.

Just make sure to have a backup of your current system and go from there
