    Question Safe to remove applications list

    Ok here is my list of safe to remove applications that gave me no errors. This may help improve battery life and phone speed. Of course don't remove applications that you need or want in the future. For example Kies Air or voice commands if you use them. Its logical, but some people are just plain silly

    Disclaimer: SGS Forums take no responsibly of you end up with a broken firmware and error screens etc. Reboot your SGS2 after removing many apps. If it still crashes reflash the firmware via Odin3

    I used titanium back up to remove or freeze the apps or you can root explorer.

    Don't hold me to this but I believe the latest firmware update will restore any of your uninstalled samsung stuff, so all is not lost necessarily if you want something back.

    Also, thanks!

    It would be interesting to know which of the apps you removed was mainly responsible for your performance increase. Having said that I want a lot of those apps still on there and don't want to remove ones where I'm not sure what they are. I have just managed to get 3617 mind, though it seems the score goes up every time you run the benchmark within a session.

    EDIT: Just got 3774 after freezing Wifi 1.0 as well as already having Wifi Sharing and Wifi Sharing Manager frozen. Maybe you could highlight the ones that seem to have the most effect or something? Then again could just be coincidence..

    Well I know my battery life has defiantly improved! 15+ hours and 80% left. Some calls, text and internet. Wifi was on and connected too for about 8 hours. (Sync off)

    Nice list, will have to see what it does to battery life although I'd already frozen quite a few here. I too would like to know what IMEI tracker is, sounds iffy.

    Its to do with that remote track and disable. If you phone is stolen you can disable it. Some Samsung thing i think, never used it!

    Thanks Briggs! I'm new to Android but immediately hated the bloat on the stock phone - your guide has been extremely useful in preventing me bricking me new toy.

    Also if you do get some error pop ups reboot and finger crossed it will go away. Happened to me. But luckily on reboot it was ok.
