1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Apologies in advance if this is a duplicate thread, but I'd like to disable as many services as I can on my RMHD, as many have a habit of starting on their own. Trouble is, I'm not sure which ones are critical to processes I actually use - i.e. I use Google Now and Swype, but not Backup Manager or Mobile Hotspot - the apps do not have obvious names, so I"m not sure which ones I'm actually using/need to keep.

    Could someone help me understand what the various "helper" apps do, and which ones I might need to keep? Is there a web page for these?

    com.motorola.huxvmm.setting
    com.motorola.setupwizard.cont
    com.verizon.permissions.vzwap
    ConnMO
    entitlement
    Google One Time Init
    Google Partner Setup
    Ils
    Lawmo
    ModemPanicReporter
    MotoCareInt

    etc, etc - there's like 40 of these that have no description of their purpose, just permissions needed.

    Thanks!

    These are safe to remove, really don't need them.

    com.motorola.huxvmm.setting - this is a backup setting
    com.motorola.setupwizard.cont - this is an app that sets up during initial installation
    entitlement (this one I would suggest keeping if you have Root and want free wi-fi, see this thread here... )
    Ils- tends to relate to GPS, I usually disable it
    MotoCareInt- Modem related, but not required

    I did put together a Safe Apps to remove list, which I did this for JB 4.1.1. The changeover to 4.1.2 was not a big difference, the ID's for some of the apps changed, but they can still be recognized and removed safely. Here is the list...

    There are generally 3 conditions to look for, when disabling bloatware.
    1) Try not to disable anything that is Google related, except Chrome, Play, Books, Music, are fine, anything else leave it alone.
    2) Do not disable anything with the mention of "modem" in the title, or "APN"
    3) If you are using a custom launcher, you can disable the "homescreen", "Circles", "Circles config", "weather" if using a different clock can disable the stock clock, and calculator. Do not disable the calendar, and you can disable all the wallpapers, animated screens. Just some ideas...
