    Is there at least a tested working way to remove the "crapware"/ bloatware? I have ended the services of un wanted apps already, but wont they be back on first reboot?

    There's a list of what can be frozen or deleted using an app like titanium backup once you are rooted.

    Your LG Spectrum 2 must have root to Remove bloatware. The reason you want root access is so you can become a “Superuser.” What does that mean? Nothing really, except your boot-loader is no longer locked, so you can do some things (including removing bloatware) and run some apps you wouldn't otherwise be able to.

    with System Cleanup or Titanium Backup * root, you can freeze (my preference) or uninstall apps that are particularly troublesome. Before you start removing any thing, make sure you have made a backup. Click on "Titanium Backup User's Guide" or "How To Video".

    I prefer freezing an app over uninstalling one, because you might never know if you’ll need/want that app in the future. I've heard a few people getting concerned about space, but honestly, most bloatware is less than 100 kb in size. So, most likely we’re talking about wanting to not see the app versus totally removing it from your device. Also, in the odd, off-chance your provider actually requires that app for an upgrade to the ROM (i.e. OTA updates), you can unfreeze it easier than having to find and side load the appropriate app.

    You can click "On This Link" for information about bloatware, and rooting your LG Spectrum 2

    That is for the korean version ONLY. vzw will not allow one to be released for the US version. That doesnt mean that it wont work on the US one but i doubt it.

    A question: Has anyone yet to try flashing through LTE2 2-Int Recovery? Say a simple zip file for Google Now etc...

    I had the guys flashing apps and things that way and it was fine. So as long as the flash able is ICS compatible you should be okay. Now whether the phone secure boots after would be another issue. I do have a buddy who acquired one of these and is working on the bootloader. When/If he cracks that we will be golden and will have a working CM 10 for you guys.

    Yeah, that was my concern if it would secure boot after the flash. Just did not have the time to today to give it a shot, just in case I had to do a full re-install. Nice to hear about a buddy of yours with one of these, if he can crack the bootloader trust me, we all be a happy group. Thanks again.

    It's hard to say what would trip the bootloader. I highly doubt adding anything will do it though. Seems most issues arise with removing apps
