    ROM

    Default How do you remove bloat?

    Just rooted my GS3 on JB and I'm just wondering how you remove the bloatware from the phone.

    ROM

    The easiest way is to flash a custom ROM. Clean ROM was a ROM which was stock/rooted but has all the boatware removed from it. I can't say that they have done a jelly bean version off the top of my head but would be easy enough to Google it. Its at least a good place to start. You could also use a launcher such as nova to hide the apps and then you wouldn't have to flash a custom ROM. Hope this helps!!

    There are several methods to do it -- probably the easiest is to install Titanium Backup app, then uninstall and/or "freeze" the bloatware apps from there.

    Custom rom. I'm running cm10.1 and I am very happy with it.

    ROM

    Here is the link to clean roms.

    Scott does a ton of good things and always keeps up with the latest stock experience without the bloat.

    Go into the forums when you get there and find your device. I didn't look but I am sure there is a jb one.

    I do not recommend cm10. If you do not know, it is aosp(plain vanilla) Android with none of the stock features that you might like.

    There is nothing wrong with cm itself, I just think it loses to many features.

    Yeah I ran clean roms for awhile on several phones. Always good and stable. If you do find a hiccup, the dev is good about helping in his forum and on xda.

    You are not gonna get the bells and whistles that other custom roms have, but that is the point of clean rom. Fast, lightweight, good battery.

    Just freeze it with Titanium Backup or Bloatfreezer. Don't feel obligated to flash a custom ROM if you don't want to and don't 'remove' any bloat, just freeze it (incase you want a future OTA, all you'll have to do is unfreeze everything).

    Edit: looks like you decided to flash, enjoy.

    Well I mean I'm all for trying out custom roms and when the opportunity rises that I can flash a good rom that also eliminated all bloat, that's just a bonus
