    Are there any other apps that can be removed? I want to get rid of some of the bloat but I'm paranoid doing so with no recovery. I'd love to remove some apps like:

    android live wallpapers
    boost zone
    mobile id

    But I just don't have the courage after the LG support tool bricked my phone...

    Ok, I can confirm that Bubbles and Android Live Wallpapers can be removed. I've disabled Chrome and Google+, but how can they actually be removed? There's no option in the Apps list (only "Force Stop" and "Disable").

    You can not delete system apps -apps pre-installed on the phone- by Android alone. I reccommend you download Titanium Backup. You can delete any application on the phone. As always, be careful; Do not delete apps you feel that will brick the phone.

    Once you get into Titanium Backup, click on "Backup/Restore" tab. Click on any app and you will have the option to backup, freeze, and uninstall -and other options too.

    And PLEASE - make a nandroid backup in Recovery (IF you have a custom Recovery) BEFORE deleting system elements! If you delete something or freeze it in TiBU and the phone borks, just go into Recovery, wipe and restore the nandroid. It'll be like nothing ever happened :)

    If you DON'T have a custom recovery that makes nandroid backups, proceed with deletions at your own extreme risk.

    Clean master has also been a huge help look it up cleans empty folders temp files and if rooted gives the option to remove bloatware!
