Sunday 30th of September 2012
I have removed with out any problems, Google music, movies, music and plus. Mobile ID, boost zone, talk, hmmmm... and a couple more. No issues. Seems to run a lot better and a better battery life. Just FYI..
Hydro Edge Software bloat
Tuesday 17th of September 2013
Since we don't have our own guide as of yet...I wonder what applications, are 'safe to remove' from this device without repercussions. I've already been dealt a nasty hand by LG for removing certain applications that cause the phone to brick. Luckily, we have enough recoveries to go through Armageddon.Since it's a direct upgrade, successor, replacement for the original Hydro, I'm looking at this thread here...Hydro bloatware removed.A lot of those applications appear once again on the Edge, with the occasional one or two removed, or having been replaced by something completely different.Here is a list of all the applications found under Device, system/app*This not a list of what you can remove, do not assume it is, any removals from this list, are of your own regard and responsibility*AndroidUpdate.apkAndroidUpdate.odexApplicationProvider.apkApplicationProvider.odexBackupRestoreConfirmation.apkBackupRestoreConfirmation.odexBluetooth.apkBluetooth.odexBooks.apkBrowser.apkBrowser.odexCalculator.apkCalculator.odexCalendar.apkCalendar.odexCalendarProvider.apkCalendarProvider.odexCertInsta
Stupidly deleted system apps - now FC
Saturday 28th of December 2013
After I rooted my Hydro Elite phone I started doing the usual bloatware cleanup. I was so stupidly confident in my removal I did not back up any of the APK's I removed from the system/app folder. To my surprise I have deleted some dependency for the 'com.android.phone' process now leaving me with a wifi mini-tablet instead of a phone.Would anyone be so kind as to ZIP me up the /system/app folder so I can restore whatever missing APK's I may need? Since I now have a useless phone, I would be even willing to buy you a lunch or dinner for your trouble. I am in need, as I cannot find any sort of ROM / image / software update anywhere online I could extract the APK's from. Thanks very much!Phil
