    So after I follow these steps…my phone will load/boot the same way? Or is this like flashing/deleting my default rom and installing a new one? A bit of clarity on what the end result will be would be greatly appreciated. 😉

    I want to be able to have the permissions/ability to remove crap like facebook and other bloat ware. But I don’t necessarily want to change my phone that much.

    Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!!!
