Possible Duplicate: Rooted Phone but still can't uninstall Apps I just went through the process of rotting my Galaxy Tablet 10.1. I used these instructions, and the process went smoothly so I think it was a success.However, everything looks pretty much the same as before, so I can't really tell if anything has actually happened.In any case, part of the reason I did this was so that I could remove some pre-installed bloatware off the tablet. My understanding was that if the tablet was rooted, I would have the ability to do this.If this is the case, though, I can't tell how. There is still no uninstall option in Settings->Applications->Manage Applications for the unwanted apps.Do I have to do something else?Is my tablet not actually rooted as I thought?Was I wrong that a rooted tablet would be able to remove bloatware?
manually removing bloat??? step inside please

Now that the Rezound has root. A lot of users will want to get rid of bloat. There are a few scripts out that will do this for you but some people (me included) like to be more involved in the process. So please read this before diving in. 1. What you think may be "bloat" may actually need to be on the phone for other dependent services to function correctly. There is no way around it some stuff you can not get rid of. 2. On apps that you know 100% is safe to do away with by all means go for it. However when you get into apps that your not sure about. DO THEM ONE AT A TIME. AFTER EACH ONE TEST THE NORMAL FUNCTIONS OF YOUR PHONE. Example things like the dialer, camera, stock texting app. General use of the phone. Because deleting something you think is useless bloat could cause a Force Close on your Dialer. I've seen it happen. 3. HOW TO MANUALLY DO AWAY WITH "BLOAT"You have several choices:A. My preferred method is use TiBu (titanium backup pro) to freeze unwanted bloat. B. You can also rename bloat simply by putting a _ somewhere in the name of it using root expl

How do I remove apps?
Sunday 14th of July 2013
I want to remove some apps that came with my phone, but the "manage apps" setting screen does have an option for uninstalling them. Pressing and holding the icon gives me two options: "Add to home" and "Add to group." I want to uninstall. I'd really like to know how to get rid of these. Otherwise I am doomed to have useless and unwanted apps staring at me as long as I have this phone. And who knows what they are doing without my knowledge! Thanks for any help.Tom

How can I stop my Galaxy S2 (I777) from shutting down without a connected charger?
Saturday 11th of October 2014
A little backstory: This all started a few days ago after I uninstalled and downloaded some apps. I'm not sure if it's related, but who knows. Anyway, I uninstalled that popular flashlight app that needs access to your entire phone/accounts for some reason. Shortly after, I tried downloading the NoBloat Free app to get rid of some unwanted stock apps. My phone immediately shut down as I tried to download it. I powered it back on but it shut down after about 30 seconds at the home screen. I figured it may be a battery issue, so I charged the phone up to 100% (it was at about 75% at the time) and took it off the charger. It stayed on for a while but without warning shut off about two hours later. I restarted the phone normally a few times just in case, but again, nothing. This morning I decided to factory reset the phone, but this didn't do anything. Now, regardless of if it's at 100%, it will shut down unless I have it hooked up to a charger. Could it be a battery issue? If so, I'll be headed to my local AT&T today to see if they have any for this specific phone. I'd like to add
