[Q]Removing bloatware

view full story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – I did a quick search and didn't see anything so sorry if this is a repeat. My friend has the VZW Note II and I used ExynosAbuse to root it for him. He's planning on unlocking the bootloader later on but I wanted to check one thing. Will removing bloatware do anything to the phone while the bootloader is still locked? I have an LG spectrum and while it had a locked bootloader you couldn't remove certain apps without causing a soft brick. I wanted to check before I tell him it's safe to get rid of stuff. (HowTos)
