Apps to remove after rooting (bloat)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just curious as to what if any apps you have removed?

I've personally frozen a few tesco apps, launcher, top apps apk's and no issues so far so might remove them.

CAUTION: If you remove them (i.e. 'delete') then make sure you are prepared for any OTA updates, that could put your hudl2 into a boot loop due to possibly failing integrity checks.

Just a friendly reminder ......

Freezing the apps is enough. You can't reclaim the space taken by the apps so it's pointless deleting apps from the system partition anyway and as CaptainMidnight writes, you'll have problems if you apply any future updates to the device.

Disabled anything Tesco related, except 'My Tesco' since it won't let you. Probably because it contains the default launcher.

No OTA problems that way too.
