    I want to remove the bloatware from the bell galaxy s2 i am rooted but unsure which app to use. Should I go with titanium backup does it have an uninstall feature or only freeze?

    Titanium Backup will uninstall as well as freeze.

    Sorry to hijack your thread but a related question. I have also frozen bloatware on my device, my question is would it be safe to uninstall these programs/apps or is it best to just freeze them ?

    i think titanium backup pro is the one that can freeze? the free one just uninstalls? not sure about that, u could check out the free one n see if it can do both :)

    @Jigsy, it depends on the app. the stuff that i know that i will never use, and wont affect the system (Music Hub, samsung app store, bbc iplayer) i just removed. if u think u might need em later on, or ur not sure if the system needs em to work properly, freeze :) make sure u enable usb debugging mode before u attempt to freeze, btw :)

    You could also get Root Explorer and rename the apk's. But TIBU is easier. You're choice as to which one to purchase though.
