    Default Uninstalling Bloatware on my HTC One (M8) AT&T

    So I rooted my phone and download this app called "Uninstall" to get of the AT&T bloatware apps, which the app does... until the phone reboots and the apps appear again. I have also tried Titanium Backup to do this with the same issue. Help would be much obliged.

    The app sounds like it's the problem. If you want bloatware removed, flash a custom rom with all that stuff already removed

    some apps may be uninstallable with out the need to root. I know on my sprint phone, 98% of the apps were removable. no silly rooting needed.

    Or simply disable the apps, I did that. Albeit I wish I could completely disable Blink Feed.

    You can't on the m8 as BlinkFeed is the whole launcher.

    Hence the trick would be to install a different launcher?

    You can disable the news aggregator part of BlinkFeed, but the whole launcher is referred to as BlinkFeed as well.

    ROM
    CleanROM 4.5 Pro

    Since you are rooted, I would install a custom rom. If you essentially want a debloated Stock ROM with Sense then I would recommend Scott's CleanROM. Currently it's only available for Verizon M8 but he said he is going to make it available for the AT&T M8 soon. I'm not sure when but very soon.

    What I meant was punch out on the home screen. Drag the blinkfeed page to the remove icon. Bam! Now you are free of blinkfeed on the home screen.


    Sense 5 was the only one to where you were stuck with it.
