    So yesterday I bought a Galaxy Ace and wanted to try to do a few things. The first thing I tried was flashing (stock firmware to newest), that went well and everything but when the phone rebooted it was in some kind of weird language. Now I managed to change the language but there are 3 apps that are apparently specific to that language and since I can't read what it does, I want to get rid of it. I tried to do this:
    Menu
    Settings
    Applications
    Manage Applications
    Tap Application to be Deleted
    Tap Uninstall
    But that didn't work since everything is greyed out, any help?

    So just rooting should make it possible?
    If so, good, rooting was next on my to-do list anyway.

    Root it and buy Root Explorer app (or d/l it whatever you want), google how to remove system apps and you'll get it there :)

    I think that I have a problem, I'm on 2.3.4 and there is no root method for it =/
    I can't seem to find anything about downgrading either.

    The root method for 2.3.3 applies for 2.3.4 too (flashable zip, i.e.)

    Oh, I didn't know that, the rooting guide on XDA said the newest FW was 2.3.4 but didn't say anything about rooting so I figured there was no way to do it.

    Kinda hard to get root explorer like this.
