About this app

ROOT REQUIRED.
NoBloat lets you delete unwanted apps that come pre-installed with your phone. Simply select the bloatware that you want to get rid of and click delete. NoBloat can automatically place backups on your external storage which you can restore at any time.
Remember, though: ALWAYS have a backup of your phone. Important features might break when deleting system apps.

Using the blacklist from the full version, you can swiftly get rid of all bloatware after installing a new ROM. When wiping your phone's data, you can export your blacklist to import it on your new ROM.

Free version features
* Disabling and enabling system apps
* Creating backups of system apps and restoring them
* Deleting system apps

Full version features
* Creating a blacklist of system app to delete
* Batch operation to backup/remove all blacklisted system apps
* Batch operation to enable all disabled system apps
* Batch operation to restore all backups
* Export your settings and blacklist to the external storage to import them later
* Quickly find apps using the search functionality

Notes
* If you have issues uninstalling apps, try uninstalling the app's updates or enabling USB debugging.
* In order to use NoBloat you need root access. If you do not know what root access means, you probably don't have it.
* Be aware that in order to update your version of Android, you might need all original apps in place. It is advised to always have a backup of deleted apps or to just disable them so you can restore them later.

Disclaimer
* TVK Development cannot be held responsible for any damage you may cause.
* Removing critical apps can cause your phone to malfunction. Be sure to ONLY delete apps you know for certain aren't needed.
* Always have backups of your device's image.
* If you have any questions regarding the safety of actions using NoBloat, you're advised to contact TVK Development beforehand.

Appears to successfully delete apps (e.g., "CNN for Samsung", "YouTube") with no error messages ("Uninstalling *app*", "NoBloat Free has been granted superuser permissions for an interactive shell", "*app* deleted") and removes them from its System Apps list. But not from the Settings Apps list. If I access a "deleted" app by its still-visible icon, it immediately responds as if nothing happened -- with no time delay for a download and reinstall, for example. If I return to the NoBloat System Apps list, the apps are listed once again. As far as I can tell, all NoBloat Free does is temporarily remove app names from its own list. Not particularly helpful.

The app works perfectly fine as mentioned and has the most important feature for backup and restore but my only concern is knowing the directory in which all the backed up .apk files are stored so that I can transfer it to my pc inorder to save valuable phone memory. Thanks to all the developers. I wish to hear from you guys. Cheers !

This app does nothing except waste your time and bandwidth. The apps it shows as installed are still there using system memory. Even worse, it enabled two of them instead of deleting them. This program is complete garbage!
