    Bloatware and such? I'm compiling a list but have bricked my device twice thus far. :)

    com.google.android.apps.plus - Google +
    com.microsoft.office.excel - MS Excel
    com.microsoft.office.onenote - MS OneNote
    com.microsoft.office.powerpoint - MS PowerPoint
    com.microsoft.office.word - MS Word
    com.microsoft.skydrive - MS OneDrive
    com.skype.raider - Skype

    So far, I have bricked it when removing certain samsung apps (calendar) and possibly some google apps. but it could be because they had dependencies.

    I'm also not sure how much this tablet has in common with other samsung devices as I don't have a samsung phone.

    Anyone else have a list that we can append?

    How do you recover from bricking a device?

    it's probably not really bricked....soft bricked ...yes. with a sammy device you go to https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ and reflash the firmware for your device. you do need to make sure they have the firmware first.

    also this thread is labeled as root. so most likely the op has a rooted device with a custom recovery. you can just make a nandroid backup, delete whatever you want and if it bricks it, you can just do a nandroid restore and start over.

    what is sd maid????

    Instead of uninstalling apps you don't want, disable them instead, and then see how that works out. You can remove the ones that don't affect the stability of your device later once you determine which ones you need to leave as is.
