    Default Re: Delete Samsung bookmarks on S4?

    I am exhilarated to finally have figured this out. Kill those bloatware bookmarks!

    To note, I did this successfully on my SCH-I545.

    Here was my process:
    1. Root your phone. If you've never rooted a phone before, you basically have to download the Android Developer SDK, then follow this guide:
    2. Use this program to install sqlite3:
    3. Install "Terminal Emulator":
    4. Open "Terminal Emulator" and use the following commands:
    Code:
    su
    At this point a dialogue should pop up and ask if you would like to provide root access to "Terminal Emulator". It will take a couple of seconds to pop up. Accept it.
    Code:
    sqlite3 /data/user/0/com.sec.android.app.sbrowser/databases/operatorbookmarks.db
    You will now be inside an SQL prompt and should see "sqlite>" heading your commands.
    Code:
    delete from bookmarks;
    5. At this point those bookmarks will be gone. Enjoy!

    If you have any problems with this ask away! I am strongly against companies putting unremovable bloatware on the devices we BUY and OWN.

    I should note this is for getting rid of the bloatware bookmarks on the stock "Internet 1.0" browser. For Chrome all you have to do is disable a service called "com.android.providers.partnerbookmarks" in the application settings. This doesn't require rooting your phone. Refer to:
