Lite ROM Script Removes International Galaxy Note Bloat
There have been a number of scripts out there that has taken the guesswork out of removing bloatware for a number of Android devices. These scripts, and others like them are being created for more devices all the time, as users and developers gain better understandings of what goes into a ROM and, more importantly, what can be taken out without breaking it. For users carrying the International Samsung Galaxy Note, the freedom of bloat movement has landed on your phones. XDA Senior Member goddamnit has posted a script that will remove that bloatware.
The script is currently only for Windows users, so those with Linux or Mac will have to virtualize in order to use it. Otherwise, the script is pretty interesting. What it does is open an interface where users choose which bloatware items they want to remove. Once finished, the script actually spits out a second script. With this script, users place it somewhere memorable on their SD card, run the new script in terminal, and then reboot. The script will uninstall the selected bloatware, and after the reboot, everything is all peachy. It’s a little complicated, but it is much less time consuming than doing it manually.

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
