I just wanted to share this with you all as I am confused here. I was always under the impression that the Bloatware that is pre-installed on our devices was required to receive OTA updates and all....but something happened the other day that shook all of that up. My wife's D1 was lost\stolen. I had to use my Assuriance Insurance to get her a replacement....this is all BEFORE I found out about Plan B....anyway...when her new D1 arrived it had NONE of the bloatware that it used to have. I called and asked if this was going to affect anything and they said that it would not. So now I have to ask....is it important or no? I am thinking no due to this experience. I am wondering if there is some kind of code or something that is used to bypass the reliance on the bloatware for OTA updates.
