Smartphones are pretty high maintenance devices. No matter how impressive the spec sheets are, the phone in your hand will inevitably get cluttered and unkempt with daily use, personalization, customization, and modifications. This is why it’s a good idea to have a ‘spring cleaning’ of sorts every once in a while, just to refresh your device.
So for Sony Xperia SP users looking to do so, Speedy Droid may be of interest. Developed by XDA Recognized Developer Divaksh, Speedy Droid is a tool that performs a variety of actions intended to refresh your device as well as a bit more. Running on XDA Recognized Developer amarullz‘s AROMA installer, Speedy Droid removes bloatware apps and features from stock-derived Sony ROMs (handy after a flash), backs up and restores things like settings and messages, and much more.
Conveniently, Speedy Droid creates backups of apps you’ve chosen to remove, just in case you find yourself regretting your decision and wanting to restore the removed apps. There are two modes, a ‘super’ mode that can be assumed to remove all bloatware apps and features, and and a ‘custom’ mode for those who prefer a bit more flexibility. All this is packed into a neat 5 MB zip file to be flashed via a custom recovery.
So if you own an Xperia SP and would like to give this a go, visit the original thread for more information._________
