Re: Does anyone know anything about these apps: safe to disable?
Before I start I just want to make it 100% clear I am not 100% on the below, and I have not looked into this. This is all done at your own risk and I would suggest investigating. If you find errors, or a ‘professional’ comments and corrects me this would be awesome.
Before delving in- clearing data. Because you’re going with the intention of keeping your phone clean and slick I would suggest let Clean Master, Memory Booster or All-In-One Toolbox take care of this.
As for the bonus question, just do a Google Search, or try Aptoide.
Once again, I am not 100% certain nor can I guarantee I am 100% correct.
avrcpServiceSamsung; I am not too sure of this one- with all the below Samsung Process/Service/Packages I am clueless on as I do not use.
com.android.backupconfirm; this has to do with Data Backing up, so if you really don’t care I would assume this is okay to disable.
com.android.sharedstorage(cuts off); Shared Storage leads me to believe access via cloud etc, but I cannot be certain- it is a bit risky being rooted because you have full control, where as not being rooted you’re restricted from deleting anything/disabling anything that could ‘hurt’ the system.
com.samsung.app.playreadyiu; This again is a Samsung process, I am not sure- it would be best to read the description.
com.samsung.inputeventapp; Again, Samsung- I am not sure.
com.sec.android.app.minimod(cuts off)- This one I would recommend not shutting off, nor the next.
com.sec.android.providers.dow(cuts off) Refer to above- Sec (I believe) refers to as Security.
CSC; Is this a package? I am not 100% sure with all the packages here and I am just going with what I know- please correct me where wrong and doing your own research.
DRM protected content storag(cuts off)- I would suggest leaving this on- as I am fairly certain this has to do with Device Storage that shouldn’t be altered.
Google account manager; No. Just, no. I presume you like Hangouts, Google+, Play Store etc? I think many of these do not need to be disabled, just you need to manage them.
google backup transport; Sure, why not- if you don’t need your data backed up (Hell, we can do our own!) I would.
google bookmark sync; Definitely. I doubt we want to sync bookmarks?
calender/contact sync (also google); This depends on what you need- I probably would leave this on, as it does not use much battery.
google partner setup; Because you’re running root- I assume this is all okay- if not we could turn back on.
Google play services - is this needed for the store to work??- Yes, sort of! So let’s just leave this on.
Key chain; Meh, get rid of it. I am not 100% sure of its role, but mine has been disabled and I have had no issues.
MAPServicesamsung; Samsung junk- I have not the slightest clue. With all this I would look into this- it appears this one is for Maps.
market feedback agent; We do not need to give feedback!
media storage (4.80mb, smaller than the actual amount of media i have stored on external SD card); This isn’t the app to store everything, and I would suggest you leave it.
OMACP -??; This is one I am not sure of, you will need to investigate.
OmaDrmPopup; Leave, this is the same as the above.
Package Access helper; I am not 100% on this one- I would try it. It sounds as though it is for people when installing APK’s.
package installer; Leave this installed for your applications.
Popupuireceiver; Leave- sounds like a package to help you receive data, although not 100%
Quickview; This is all dependent on you really. I personally would keep.
Samsung account - what is this needed for?- I’d assume Samsung have their own market and apps?
search apps provider; Not really needed- I’d remove.
SecPhone; Not sure on this one, own research required.
Share apps; I do not think this is needed, Not sure on this one, own research required.
SnsImageCache; This is the cache and I would leave this one.
TwDVFSApp; Not sure on this one, own research required.
TwLauncher (im assuming this is the default launcher? Maybe); TouchWiz if I am correct- please leave this!
TwWallpaper chooser; Not really needed but advisable to keep.
Wifi direct/Wifi sharing/Wifi sharing manager (will disabling any of these disable my ability to actually connect to a wifi network?); I would definitely suggest leaving this one.
Wssyncmlnps; Not sure on this one, own research required.
