    First go into settings, applications, manage applications and see how many you can delete from there but to get all of them away root your device and install titanium back up and UN install from there

    Have you achieved getting all the applications deinstalled. I have the same Pad (Freescale A8) and I don't really know how to root that thing. Have you done anything else with yours to improbve its perfromance. Thx

    Update to the newest January firmware. Root it (user root) with z4root. Then use Titanium backup to remove system apps you don't need.

    Sorry, I'm really new to android and all it's features. I think I can find the firmware on myn, but how to I install the firmware. I have an USB connection cable, but I don't really how I can connect the device with my PC: Any step by step explanation how to update firmware and how to root the freescal a8 afterwards would be really really helpful to me. Thanks alot!

    Be wary of z4 root - I rooted but then lost wifi. Luckily my vendor 'ankaka' have good CS who sent me firmware and instructions to repair.
