    Easiest way to get rid of bloatware


    So, i'm really trying to get rid of as many of the junk apps on my TF201 as possible and not really sure where to start. Does Titanium Backup do this or should i plan a full root?

    You will have to gain root to remove any apps that came on the Prime. Once you are rooted you can use a multitude of tools from the play store to remove them.

    I would HIGHLY recommend just disabling the stock apps. No root needed.

    Why? The stock apps are stored on the system partition. Keep in mind that you can only use space on the /data/ partition and the /system/ partition (about 500 MB) is completely separate area of the disk from the /data/. Removing the bloats are will only free up space on the /system/ partition. Instead of only having 200 MB free, you might get 250 MB free. This is not going to give you any more space on the internal memory.

    Also, if you uninstall stock apps you cannot use OTA updates without restoring the removed apps.
