All the stuff T-Mobile installs on hard reset...

I noticed after doing a hard reset that it gives you three seconds before it installs a load of stuff to the device.

What is this stuff?

Is any of it needed?

On my latest hard reset I waited for it to tell me about the 3 seconds and then before the time ran out I pressed the reset button on my device, thus avoiding installing the stuff.

Will I run into any problems by doing this? Is there anything I should have installed that I havent now?

Will my machine be faster because I've de-bloated it?

My data connection still works, as does everything else. The only thing I've noticed is gone is the anti-virus.

What's also missing?

Cheers,

DJ

I would also be interested in this as I found my vario 3 quite sluggish in general use even with the kaiser tweaks and was wondering whether it would be quicker if I didn't install all the T mobile crap.

I would also like to know the long term effects of this process of turning off the phone before the t-mobile content is installed. does it effect stability of the os? My girlfriend will be getting the VarioIII next week when her contract is due for upgrading. If its got no long term stability problems I may do that with her VarioIII when she gets it.

It is just the Anti-virus that's installed on hard-reset, everything else is written into the 'main' ROM. therefore everything works fine without it

T-Mo have - for once - done a great job 'under-customising' the Vario III, no bloatware at all ;)

Not too sure. When I left it running, it does install a lot of stuff.

One way to find what is on it is to look at Extended ROM and see what is included.

Yeah you're right I meant the anti-virus is the only app it installs (right?) the other stuff is just homepage settings and stuff isn't it?

Anyway my point was if you do the Hard-reset-Soft-reset thing the phone works perfectly ;)

No you don't that's exactly what I'm trying to say

When I first got my Vario III I let it do it's thing, few days later I did the Hard-Soft-Reset and all the settings for Internet, MMS etc are already there.

So there's no point in doing the hard/soft reset trick - as you can just uninstall the AV?

And if you managed to edit the config_operator.txt to change the install on hard reset routine, all you would be doing is to remove the auto config for connections/mms etc
