    By chance does anyone have a list of bloatware that is safe to remove on the Reverb, even if it is not all inclusive? I know I can randomly freeze apps but if someone has a list they are willing to share I would be greatful. It would help to give me, and others, a place to start.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was actually going to make a bloat apps guide for the SGRvrb just like I did for the OE, but I need to get rooted first :)

    I have a few candidates in mind, though, like Connections Optimizer (just... unnecessary!).

    I've finally managed to make my phone go for TWO whole days without freezing in the slightest, and my free RAM has essentially doubled.

    Here's what I did /froze

    Apps used:


    Greenify
    Apex Launcher Pro
    Titanium Backup

    Apps/bloatware frozen (with TB):

    Chrome
    Connections optimizer
    Face unlock
    Falling stars
    Google play books
    Google play magazines
    Google play movies and tv
    Google play music
    Google+
    Internet (I use dolphin browser)
    Kies via wifi
    Launcher 2.0 (do not freeze until you've got another launcher)
    Media hub
    Mobile print
    My account
    My files (I use Root Explorer)
    Page buddy notisvc
    Picasa uploader
    Samsung account
    Samsung apps
    Trebuchet (do not freeze this unless you've already got another launcher)
    Vpn client
    Weather widget (I use Weather Bug)
    Weather widget main
    Yahoo finance
    Yahoo news


    This is not a comprehensive list, just what I've found I can freeze on my own without screwing anything up.

    Setup Greenify to your liking.

    So I installed stock 4.1.2, rooted, and used Titanium Backup Pro to remove all the bloatware (and some others) in this list.

    My reverb has been fantastic!! Removing all the bloatware gave me about 200mb of extra app space, and in 4 weeks it has only froze on me TWICE. this is an incredible improvement! also the reverb is generally more responsive now in all aspects. it's more smooth opening apps, loading web pages, running apps & games. like I said, i have only had to force restart the phone twice in a month. fantastic.

    In the early days of the reverb cobretti and i made a list of apps safe to freeze/remove. If you would like to find it just keep going back through the reverb forums and it will eventually be there! =D

    I believe that force stop is only a temporary halt, whereas disable does exactly as written...disables it until you re-enable it...

    Peace,

    Feel free to freeze or uninstall. I used an app called System App Uninstaller to uninstall all this apps. Titanium Backup is also a good app for this. I also use an app call foldermount and link2sd to link apps and data to my sd. (Note, those apps will only create links not move apps.) Gave me 1.6gb free on my system for apps. Make a backup first.
