it will remove T-Mobile apps and the boot animation will change to one that says android and flashes, no boot sound either. make sure to back it up. most of the T-Mobile apps should be gone after removing. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I727R

They stayed on somehow, but removing cust.img made it so that my uninstaller was able to get rid of them. I'm still not sure what's safe to remove, but I was able to strip all the ones that were bothering me. Thank you.

yeah it worked on an earlier update but it's good that you got them uninsulated, it's not a problem for me to help people at all :lol:

Looks like this is would be the best place to get an answer. I'm rooted and bloatware free. One itsy bitsy problem lol. When I removed my bloatware I lost my call log and my keyboard buttons are off. For the keyboard its set up more like a thumb keyboard with numbers on the left. Anybody else have this issue?
Question two. I want to upgrade to something better than 2:3:6 anybody seen any roms out there. I love my lil phone but I know she can handle more than what she has.

my call log also got messed up and doesn't work, no idea why, and I haven't noticed anything with keyboard as I don't use stock keyboard. I use a third party call log app and it works just fine. as for roms, there may or may not be one in the future but there isn't one right now. I just hope that the company smartens up and gives us the original update.app, for both devices, and I hope there will be roms. this phone can definitely handle more than its given.

hi,

just rooted this phone with the 435 post method with poot works good few questions,

 

can you un root the phone (if needed ) with poot

can you do a factory setting with root if cannot unroot with poot.

the cust.img file in the image folder if i delete that to get rid of the tmobile bloatware would i be able just to copy it back into the folder if needed .

 

mayobe , what  apps can be safley removed (strip)

 

or anyone esle what apps can you remove saftley without bricking the phone .

sorry for the questions just dont want to brick it .

 

ty.

yes cust.img can be removed and replaced. I'm not sure about which apps are safe for removal though, I don't spend much time with my u8680 anymore.

Because t-mobile sucks, huawei has 4.0 firmware for this phone, but t-mobile must put their skin and stupid apps inside,   but they dont want because they are not selling this phone anymore,

The unrooter doesn't work for me. I have Build Number U8730 cuz I did the latest OTA update. I believe I read somewhere in this forum that that's the reason why the unrooter won't work for me. Are there any options for me? I really need my phone unrooted
