Here is a list of all of the APK's I've removed (moved to sdcard_ext in case I need to reinstall) and have tried to remove. I know there are a few threads on this already, but I wanted to start a thread that I could keep updated, and maybe give a little insight into what some non-obvious apks do. I have some more research to do, but my main goal is to eventually be able to list what each APK does and whether it can be removed or not.

-----APK's removed with no problems

-----NEVER REMOVE ANYTHING YAHOO!!! (causes problems with contacts)


Learned this the hard way. It took me a whole day to figure out what was causing it. What kind of BS is that? I don't want anything from that mediocre company on my phone. This is a Google phone, not a Yahoo phone.

Another contacts issue is ICS Google+

Installing the ICS version of Google+ on a non-ICS phone causes contacts to force close.

I have no idea how or why this happens...it just does.

I cut/paste them to the sdcard in case I have to reinstall them.

Sorry for the late response, I moved onto the RAZR and now the Gnex.

if you have root, try titanium backup. it will allow you to remove bloatware apps. however, id recommend freezing them with TiBu (they're still there, but you won't have an app drawer cluttered up with the crapware), if you're going to take official OTA updates, all of the bloat must be installed. if you've frozen the apps, TiBu will allow you to unfreeze them, so you can take the updates
