    I have an HTC Desire 510 with Telus as my carrier. It has a stock ROM, and has been rooted, but is still S-ON. I've used File Explorer to delete the Facebook and Twitter .apk and .odex files, (as well as some other bloatware such as the Stocks app), along with that annoying startup sound that HTC insists on using to tell everybody in sight that I've just turned my phone on.

    Problem is, whenever my phone undergoes a "hard boot", (the battery dies totally or is removed, or I go to the boot menu), all of that bloat I've painstakingly removed magically reappears. Is there some way I can rid my phone of all this crap permanently without installing a custom ROM?

    You likely will need to install a custom ROM to prevent the apps from automatically download/reinstall. There's probably a file you can delete to prevent this. Unfortunately I don't know what that file may be. Alternatively, you can use titanium backup, or a similar app, to freeze those unwanted apps.

    Let us know how it goes.
