    Rooting Out Apps

    If I root my Bionic will I be able to get rid of these crAPPs?

    Rooting Out Apps-forumrunner_20120710_000131.png

    I've downloaded Petes Root tool to my laptop, but I don't want to brick the phone or cause it any problems.

    Ive never rooted anything before, is it worth the risk ???

    stock bionic? what version?...cause petes tool does not work with any version past .893 and yes you can get rid of all that crap after root..and you can never brick the bionic..unless you get it wet ..drop it .. or run over it with a car.

    I think its the 905 update and I have no real reasons to root my phone other than getting rid of factory installed Apps that I'm not ever going to use and I just don't like looking at them on my phone.

    I don't have a computer background or any formal training in Android devices. So I'm nervous about attempting a root.

    Is there a "fool proof" way of doing it?

    motofail 1 click is the easiest way.. but if you dont have confidence in it dont..ICS will be coming out real soon and you dont have to be rooted to get rid of apps.. has a built in app remover ... once you remove these apps from .905 or later versions it will take you off teh OTA path..but like i said earlier you cannot brick the bionic there are ways to get it back to normal..thru rsd lite and fxz

    I think it's more of a shut down; they'll still be there, but not active.

    To the OP, if you root may be better to freeze bloatware rather than remove it. Sometimes an app needs something from them and if it isn't there the app won't work.

    Pretty much, but you don't have to be rooted in order to do it. There's some information at Bye-bye, bloatware: Disable system apps in Android Ice Cream Sandwich | Computerworld Blogs
