    There is no uninstall option. Am I going to have to wait for rooting to uninstall all this crap?

    They said stay tuned for weekend updates so I'm guessing Monday.


    P.s. Lightning is what you want not lightening in your signature.

    Titanium Backup will allow you to remove completely (Uninstall). Not favored, but does work.

    Or Root Explorer will let you change the extension of the crapware from .APK to .OLD or whatever.

    Use Tibu to freeze the app, not uninstall it. Its the equivilent of making it .old, since it can't run in either but you can restore it at any time

    I use root explorer and just highlight and delete.. or as others said titanium backup.. once rooted.. rooted today and my app draw looked empty after getting rid of the bloat..

    If I ever need the crap to return the phone then I will just flash the RUU like I did when I rooted and return phone to stock..

    I'm rooted. Titanium backup. I suggest freezing first, then reboot, and if all is well, uninstall.
