    Hey guys, first of all, HELLO! I was until very recently an iPhone lover, but i always knew Android would beat Apple's closed policies and OS and for me this day has come with my brand new Galaxy S 2.

    Basically, I am on Rogers in Canada and purchased a GS2 that is unlocked by rooting but originally on Bell. There is a bunch of crapware that i cannot use like BellTV and the intregated GPS Navigator and a bunch of other stuff. What i want is to install a fresh version of android without all the Bell Crapware. I dont know how it works for android but for iphone i could manually download an image of the OS and install it through itunes.

    Do i have to install the OS from scratch or can i just use a factory reset settings to take out all the bell stuff. Also, please take into consideration that no matter what you guys suggest me, i want to keep my device unlocked.

    Thank you so much for your help

    Since you are rooted you will be able to manually remove or freeze all your unwanted apps using titanium backup.
