    [TUT] Remove Some of the Bloatware

    Hello again everybody.
    Here is a little tutorial to get rid of the crap thats shipped with the phone
    and get it on a sweet diet of slimfast.

    If you think to yourself "HEY! that shouldn't be removed!"
    I most likely removed it because there is a Market alternative.

    *Always be careful when modifying /system*

    First we need to remount our phone and make /system/app - R/w
    adb remount

    then type:
    adb shell

    *In Shell ($)

    su (IMPORTANT)
    cd /system/app/
    ls

    Now you can start removing the bloat.

    rm Launcher.* (ONLY IF YOU HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE LAUNCHER INSTALLED!)
    rm Maps.*
    rm SystemTutorial.*
    rm LatinIME.* (MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ANOTHER KEYBOARD INSTALLED)
    rm Email.*
    rm Calculator.*
    rm EmotionWeather.*
    rm EmotionPhotoWidget.*
    rm EmotionCalendar.*
    rm EmotionPhotoAlbumWidget.*
    rm EmotionBookmarksWidget.*
    rm EmotionEvents.*
    rm Twidroid.*
    rm EmotionMemo.*
    rm EmotionRSSReader.*
    rm EmotionVideoWidget.*
    rm EmotionClockWidget.*
    rm HwIME.*

    as always, reboot.

    and, as with most things in the filesystem, this can also be done
    with Root Explorer

    If you messed something up, it probably wasn't meant to be
    removed and most likely wasn't listed above. Start over from scratch...
    unless you made back-up of course


    If i missed anything, shoot me a message!

    you can just get the most recent version in the market and this removes it from your /system/ internal memory, when you install from the market it installs to your current setup. say if you use a2sd then it installs there.

    Ok, I've gotten some of the useless (to me) things off, like Facebook, Yahoo, & Twitter.

    What things would you say should "never be removed?" Probably the keyboard, the launcher, and the LatinIME?

    That is, of course, that you definitely know what you're doing, or know someone who does...

    I was having trouble trying to (remount?) the internal card. I used the System App Remover to remove stuff instead.

    entering adb remount, it appeared to be successful (no message followed) but when I tried to remove a file, it said things were still read-only. Does that mean I didn't root correctly?

    I accidentally deleted gtalkservices.apk, I thought it was the google talk app. I can't download apps from the market after that, had to reflash the rom.
