after your device is rooted you can go about removing some of the bloat..
first off dont update any of the other software on the device.. if you did then just uninstall it..
install Root Explorer by SpeedSoftware
we are not actually deleting anything, just disabling it by rename the extention from apk to bak
go into your /vendor/app directory and rename everything except songbird
then go into your /system/app directory and you can rename any of these without problems
browser (i installed firefox)
email (i installed K9mail instead)
gmail (i installed K9mail instead)
vpnservices (i installed openvpn since i rooted it)
there may be others you can disable this way like the 7store or whatever it is.. i cant remember what it was called
just be careful you don't disable anything that your system needs to run..
remember, just rename the apk to bak.. that way you can always put it back if you decide you want it
you can also install Boot Animations * Root by JRummy Apps Inc.
i used this to disable the boot animation..
after all this you should reboot your device
