    Free up space by moving a few files from /system/app

    I decided I wanted to free up some space on my S7 so I started looking at what was where...
    Using Root Explorer (after having rooted your device)
    I created a folder on SDCard named app.removed
    Then I went to /System and set it to Read/Write
    Then I went in to /system/app folder and used the Multi-select option to select many files including anything with Emotion in the name, email, Twidroid, and any of the Live Wallpapers. I then selected Move and went up two folders then in to the /SDCard and then selected the app.removed folder and pasted these files here. I freed up about 9 megs in the system (as shown at the top of the Root Explorer window, but I am not sure how much the overall system memory savings were.

    Here is a list I have removed with no ill effects at all:
    VisualizationWallpapers.odex
    VisualizationWallpapers.apk
    Twidroid.apk
    SystemTutorial.odex
    SystemTutorial.apk
    LiveWallpapersPicker.odex
    LiveWallpapersPicker.apk
    LiveWallpapers.odex
    LiveWallpapers.apk
    FileManager.odex
    FileManager.apk
    FacebookHUAWEIPreview.apk
    EmotionWeather.odex
    EmotionWeather.apk
    EmotionVideoWidget.odex

    EmotionRSSReader.odex

    EmotionPhotoWidget.odex
    EmotionPhotoWidget.apk
    EmotionPhotoAlbumWidget.odex
    EmotionPhotoAlbumWidget.apk
    EmotionMemo.odex
    EmotionMemo.apk
    EmotionEvents.odex
    EmotionEvents.apk
    EmotionClockWidget.odex
    EmotionClockWidget.apk
    EmotionCalendar.odex
    EmotionCalendar.apk
    EmotionBookmarksWidget.odex
    EmotionBookmarksWidget.apk
    Email.odex
    Email.apk

    If anyone else has moved files from the /system/app folder with no ill effects, please let me know and I'll add it to the list
