    Hey guys,

    I'm loving my phone, and after trying Samsung Social hub - i decided it's crap and prefer to use the original apps instead. e.g fbook, twitter, gmail etc.

    So How can i just remove Samsung social Hub?

    anyone recommened anything else?

    (my phone is rooted) After installing superuser and Ti backup, I froze the social hub, it is still on the phone but it removed itself from the app drawer so you won't see it.

    I decided I didn't like Social Hub either so removed accounts with following:
    Settings-Applications-Manage Applications-All-Social
    Hub-Clear Data

    Hi, i use a free app called Bloat Freezer, it's simple to use.
    Just freeze whatever you want.

    lol, trying to make everything understandable:
    you can remove your account's information from the social hub, or set it to never update itself and just ignore it. do it through the hub itself, or through "accounts and sync" inside settings menu.

    or you can freeze it so you won't see it in the app drawer, and it won't run in the background, untill you 'defrost' it. for that you need to be rooted.
    to freeze it, use an app like bloat freezer or the one i use - Titanium backup.
    you can freeze alot of things: Here's a list of what is safe and what is not safe to freeze.
    Freezing and defrosting takes a second each app, and you can even freeze all the apps that you downloaded but don't want to run in the background, and defrost them when you want to use them.

    so that is what you can do, hope it helped.

    Firstly you need to be rooted, then you just install titanium backup and uninstall whatever you want.

    But be aware some applications are dependent on others so be careful and make backups.

    Applications I remove are, wow so much junk when you list it like this. :D

    Here is a full, step-by-step, guide to freezing, "bloatware".


    Two of the biggest battery wasters for most people on the SGSII are Wi-Fi sharing 1.0 and Wi-Fi sharing manager 1.0.

    The freezing of just these two process's alone saved a lot of battery.

    Very happy that i've helped :)

    and your list is just about what i froze, and now ill freeze the ones that ironass just mentioned.

    if you'll freeze what you mentioned earlier, i think you'll feel improvement in the battery life and maybe even in performance.

    So, the phone needs to be rooted to safely delete/uninstall any of the apps on it?

    And rooted means something like breaking into the OS? Does that void the warranty, or why would a person not want to do that? (Other than being very new to smartphones and inherently a cautious individual.) lol

    Rooting voids warranty.

    You only need rooting to uninstall apps that originally came with the phone. Those apps you downloaded on your own can be uninstalled.

    Rooting gives access into the system itself. Meaning you can customize and change a lot more things. Like what the physical button does. You can fully backup the phone including the system folders, change the launch screens, the notification sounds... etc

    Hello there!

    I signed up for your forum first of all just to say thank you! You are amazing here! I found almost 70% of the answers to my questions right on androidforums.com!

    Although I have a few quick further questions that I decided to post here for Android experts. I am quite new to smart phones so would appreciate your assistance.

    1.) The phone is rooted by SuperOneClick. If I install updates on top now will my phone get un-rooted? I receive a reminder time to time saying that updates are available.
    2.) If I uninstall applications instead of just freezing them (I use Titanium Back up Pro) will I not be able to un-root my phone back if I wanted to? System applications are not touched without carefully checking them against the list I found here.
    3.) Titanium Back up says that my ROM is 879 MB in total with only 47.3 MB free. Is that a bad thing? How do I free up some more space and is it necessary? I assosiate it with Windows hard drive for some reason and if that would be the case I cleaned it up by all means to improve performance.
    4.) Besides freezing and uninstalling Titanium also has an option to clean data. Does it imply basic data cleaning inside applications or does it perform some kind of irrevocable deletion I might regret later on?

    Would be thankful for any suggestions, ideas or advices. Thanks.

    If you just want to delete your account then the best way to do this is to go to:
    Settings>Accounts and sync then under the heading 'manage accounts' should be your account, tap on this and and then select 'remove account'.

    hope i helped! :)

    Any ideas anyone?

    I found the answers to my third and fourth questions although I am still not sure whether installing the updates may ruin my phone's root created by SuperOneClick

    I like this social hub but what i dont like is when i already have my email connected it now wont recieve any off them through since hotmail changed to outlook.

    I try to remove this email so i can redo it however it cant seem to be able to remove email from its settings. Other parts of socialhub is fine.

    Pretty useless like hotmail is too, in this day and age too, two steps forward 3 steps back.
