    Hi All,

    Just rooted my 2.3.3 Verizon Xperia Play and wanted to know which bloat was safe to freeze/remove. Can anyone help? Thanks!

    Here are some you can get rid of

    *Games*
    Star Battalion
    Asphalt
    Madden
    The Sims
    Tetris

    *Apps*
    Skype
    Verizon's Backup Assistant
    Visual Voice Mail
    Kindle
    VZnavigator
    VZ App Store
    Launcher 2 (You MUST install a new launcher, or else you'll run into problems)
    My Verizon (From xda-developers ##This one has to be done last. If your phone is running, prepare for it to hate you. Reboot after its gone and you should be alright.)

    Thanks Paxchristos! Got me curious about that last one. Might have to read up on that over at xda-developers first. So just to clarify, I can UNINSTALL all the above if I wish, as opposed to just freezing them?

    Thanks!

    Yes, just make backups first

    Link for safe apps to delete on 2.3.2 (and 2.3.3) for the R800x (verizon play)
