    Default Titanium Backup cant uninstall bloatware?

    Hey guys,

    Im all new to this again since my last android phone was 4 years ago, but i have rooted and installed titanium backup without any issues.

    I dont think im ready to go and install a custom rom just yet so right now im just seeing how much of my 16GB i can free up, starting by removing bloat apps.

    I have tried to uninstall apps that ill never use such as Zdigital/Polaris Office/Twitter/FM Radio/All keyboards except English etc etc

    The problem is they re-appear as soon as i have uninstalled them, leaving me to believe there is a specific HTC package re-installing them if removed.

    Can someone please point me in the right direction to why i cannot permanently remove these bloat apps?

    Thanks!

    I am unsure what you mean still?

    They are apps that were pre-installed onto the mobile, and they cannot be uninstalled by normal means, and it appears that not even my rooted htc one mini with titanium backup can uninstall them.

    EDIT: my mistake a small type-o i did not want to install them, i wanted to uninstall them

    That's not the one I've been using. The clean master by KS Mobile allowed me to delete all the pre-installed bloatware.

    Once you're rooted Titanium Backup WILL uninstall bloatware. That's one of its endearing features.

    KSMobile with Root access did not uninstall the bloat

    Also Haalcyon, it has root access, yet titanium backup cannot uninstall the bloat, it just always keeps re-appearing after a reset.

    Perhaps i should just look into the magio rom, this bloat seems stupidly persistent.

    Has anyone tried out these Rom cleaners?



    Not sure if they would actually work for my HTC one Mini

    Just for anyone curious, after more research it appears that its because being a "system app" it is write protected, and requires or a custom rom to get rid of them
