    Is there a walk through for debloating?
    Mainly I just want to know what stock apps are safe to remove. I've got Titanium running and looking through the list of everything I want to remove as much of this AT&T crap that I don't need/use.

    No need.

    Settings - > App Manager - > Select an app like At&T Navigator - > Click Disable

    Your bloatware will no longer show up anywhere, ping you for updates or bother you ever again until you re-enable it (like for an att OS update and there is no root or saving files required.)

    Does this make more memory available? Maximizing available memory would be, for me, the reason I'd want to 'debloat' the phone. I hate all the crap they stuff on phones. Same thing with most of today's windows laptops and was one of the main reasons I went to Macs.
