    Cool Whats safe to delete,whats Bloatware and whats actually necessary???

    I'm sure this is an easy one for those who have been doing this long enough.I have Rom Toolbox-Pro and have been freezing,then deleting things that I thought were unneccessary.Nonetheless I'm sure others have been doing the same with either great or disasterous results as I've seen both reading thru.

    Lets share alittle and save many the disasterous part.

    Some stuff confuses and scares me to think of freezing or deleting just because i cant identify the icon that went with it.

    My own personal question list:
    WhyTF is maps a constantly running app?
    autotest,autotest2 and mmstest also runs when they feel like it and has boocoo permissions.
    My uploads is running,I dont upload WTF?
    Im only really concerned with the running stuff,the books and silly stuff can sit in there and rot.

    Agreed! I use tb and have frozen quite a few things...asphalt, golf (something or another) and voice, maps, etc...worth no issues. What i have found out is that you have to defrost everything if you want the ota update. That being said,I have had no issues with the phone freezing or fc'ing on me.
