    So I am new to all of this, and I just got this phone for xmas.

    I just rooted my phone successfully.
    My goal is basically to remove all of the metro apps, because they lurk in the back all the time.
    I am not sure how to do this, and I really don't want to brick my phone.
    Can anyone help?

    Go into your settings>about phone section and look under SW Version. Is the a B at the end or a C?

    If its a B try rerooting, if its a C then thats the update and theres no root that will work for it right now.

    It's safe to remove but, you will have force close issues until you reboot. After you reboot all will be good.
