TrulyClean is a Samsung Galaxy S4 bloatware cleaning script

0. phoneArena 03 Jul 2013, 07:00 posted on

Nobody likes bloatware on their Android smartphone. It just sits there doing nothing but occupying scarce system resources. Isn't there a way to get rid of it once and for all? Sure there is, and if the Samsung Galaxy S4 is your smartphone of choice, TrulyClean is a script that can free it of bloatware...

This will not eliminate the bloat problem on the S4. If you want to do that, get the Goofle edition.

Which particular advertised gimmick for the S4 can't you turn of in settings?

I do not think it is so much turning them off, but not having them take up memory on the phone if you aren't going to use them. I can't speak for HASHTAG, but that is what I am suspecting was meant.

For me, one of the best things about flashing my ROM was getting rid of all of the bloat.

That makes sense. Thanks.

ECPirate37 that is exactly what I mean. I wouldn't mind these gimmicks on the S4, but the fact that they take up almost half the phone's memory it does bother me. Then again, I do have an SD card, but still I would like to have more internal memory available, like for apps and other media.

Me, I like just make folders and put all the useless apps in the "trash" folder, and only open it when I need something in there.

So, is root required for this, or no? Sounds like it's a prereq...
