Samsung Fascinate :: Removing Bloatware Without Being In Recovery Mode

Sep 10, 2010

I basically have no idea what I'm doing so I take no responsibility for how you use the information below, nor any responsibility for any issues it might cause. After following the rooting process and installing Titanium Backup and the 1-Click Lag Fix. I decided to explore and I was actually able to remove some of the bloatware apps without being in recovery mode. After obtaining root ADB Shell (the shell with a # sign instead of a $) I basically did the following commands:

General :: Samsung Fascinate Stuck In Recovery Mode

Mar 7, 2012

I rooted my phone a couple weeks back. I backed up my apps with titanium pro and downloaded ROM manager. I clicked "reboot into recovery mode" from ROM manager and the phone went into recovery.

I am now stuck. I have four options:
1. reboot system now
2. apply update from SD card
3. wipe data/factory reset
4. wipe cache partition

I tried option one and clicked the button on the right side of the phone (the "enter" button), but nothing happens. In fact, none of the options do anything. seems like the phone isn't recognizing the enter button.

I have not flashed clockwork mod recovery. I think it probably requires some type of reboot but i don't know the steps.

General :: Samsung Galaxy Rugby - Phone Unusable After Removing Bloatware

May 16, 2012

Brand new Samsung Galaxy Rugby from Rogers, rooted it and began removing bloatware via Titanium Backup. I backed up and uninstalled Samsung Home, then I uninstalled SNS 1.0 without backing up. One of these two are now causing my BRAND NEW phone to not boot up anymore. It just gets stuck at the Samsung loading screen.

I have gone into recovery mode and wiped data and factory reset, which will get me to the Android startup wizard, but after it's completed, it crashes and I get Android with no Home launcher. Completely unusable...

What can I do?! There doesn't seem to be any custom firmwares for this phone yet, so is there something generic I can use to put either stock Android on it or a custom ROM in place of this broken Samsung ROM?

I wish there was something I could do with the launcher backups in my TitaniumBackup folder on my SDcard. I *can* access that...

Samsung Fascinate :: Does Appbrain Uninstall Bloatware?

Sep 27, 2010

I just installed appbrain, and it shows bloat like cityID and VZ navigator. It also shows an uninstall option as well. Theoretically, can you Sync with AppBrain, uninstall all that bloat, then perform installs again when you need restore the bloat (for when updating or anything)? Haven't tried this yet but just wanted to see if others have.

Samsung Fascinate :: Moving Bloatware & Other Apps Safely

Sep 27, 2010

So, I have been successfully moving bloatware and other apps I don't use - from Verizon apps to Samsung Widgets. I use LauncherPro exclusively and according to this site, TouchWiz30Launcher.apk/odex can be removed safely, but he also mentions not to move Launcher.apk, which I don't see in my system folder. When I move it, the phone is operational, but keep getting a force close error for TouchWiz30Launcher.apk/odex. By moving it back with Root Explorer, it corrects the error immediately.I guess what I am asking is...is it possible to disable the 17MB file of TouchWiz if I am not using it, and if so, how.

Samsung Fascinate :: Removing Root / Going Back To Stock?

Sep 20, 2010

It seems that rooting the Fascinate and fixing the Google Search issue on the soft key and removing some bloatware is pretty easy, and I'm actually contemplating it once I get a Fascinate. Here are my questions: If I root the phone, I would not get OTA updates, when 2.2 came out? I would have to remove the root in order to get that OTA update to 2.2? To remove the root, I would enter the following into a command prompt on the phone or on my PC?

How To Remove Root
adb shell
su (its going to ask you for permission on your phone so hit allow)
rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
rm /system/xbin/busybox
rm /system/xbin/su
exit

Once I removed the root, the OTA update would just come up? Is there a difference between unrooting and returning my phone to stock? How to go back To stock - Android Forums.

Motorola Droid X :: Useless Bloatware With No Way Of Removing It?

Oct 5, 2010

I have been a big fan of android since I heard about it a few years ago and when my carrier finally got a android phone I jumped at it. The day the Motorola droid came out I bought it. The Motorola Droid is a great device and I am really happy with it. Fast forward last week I bought a Droid X for my girl friend and at first we both thought it was an amazing device. But after using it some more I noticed all the CRAP that comes with the phone.(she will never use skype and all the other junk) I am mad at google for letting companys like Motorola add all this useless crap on a phone with no way of removing it. Also the battery only lasts a few hours with only twitter and facebook installed on the device? Without rooting it does anyone else know a way to remove these apps?

Just FYI in case anyone wants to know: For download mode, with the phone turned off, fold the number 1 key on the QWERTY keyboard and the power button simultaneously For recovery mode, with the phone turned off, hold Volume Down, CAmera, and Power simultaneously. You navigate with volume UP/DOWN, select with HOME, Menu toggles to "Manual Mode", whatever that it.

Motorola Droid X : Removing Bloatware Noticeably Increase Performance / Battery Life?

Jul 23, 2010

I have asked this on the bloatware thread, and I've only seen one person mention that they have seen an improvement (BringTheRain403). I know a lot of you have removed most of the bloatware by now.

Do you see a noticeable increase in performance or battery life after removing the bloatware? By removing, I mean freezing the apk's in Titanium Backup. I don't really have a problem with this stuff being on the phone, but if it will noticeably help to remove it, then I definitely will.

Samsung Fascinate :: Way To Keep Recovery Partition?

Oct 26, 2010

I don't like how Samsung gives us a nice 250gb drive but chunks it into two ~100mb partitions with a little left over for the hidden recovery one. I want to keep the recovery partition but have the remainder in one nice big drive. I tried out Easeus Partition Master but that doesn't seem to allow me to do what I want. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could do this?

Has anyone found a good wifi tethering app that supports infrastructure mode? I tried android pre-14 on google and barnacle but both were just adhoc mode. I know google pre-14 will work once we get to 2.2 os, or it least it does on the EVO, but not sure when that is happening for the Fascinate.
