Hi everyone! This is my first topic here. I was searching on google for days but couldn't find anything about how to remove pre-installed, unnecessarry apps like Google+, Streams, Maps, YouTube from Ascend Y200. These apps are in the system memory, and cannot be moved to SD-card (because they are system apps). I tried to move or uninstall these with Titanium Backup, but I got an error: Failed to locate apk. That means, these apps are in a different folder from /system/app. I downloaded Root Explorer and started browsing the system files, and found the solution. ***Your phone needs to be rooted to do these steps*** ***I am not responsable for any system damage or brick. Do it carefully, and know what you are doing!*** With Root Explorer, go to /data/dataapp and look for the apps, what you want to uninstall. Match icons with filenames. Navigate to "custom" folder. I live in Europe so for me, it's /cust/normal/europe. But in USA, I think it's /cust/nomral/us or something like that. You should see these folders: app, email, lib, logo, media, ons, prop, xml (These are for me...) Now mount R/W, go to "xml" folder and backup APKInstallList.txt file. (Copy it and paste to same path. You should get an APKInstallList - Copy.txt) Open the original APKInstallList.txt in text editor. You can see there are the separated system apps' path. Delete the path lines of the apks, what you don't want to use, or you want to reinstall from Google Play. Save the file and exit. Turn off Quick Boot in Settings>Applications>Quick Boot. Reboot your phone. After reboot, you can see, the icons are still in the menu. Tap the icon to make it disappear. Now you can reinstall YouTube, Maps, Google+ from Google Play, and now they gonna be stored on SD card as user apps. You can look for other system apps in /system/app but they can be removed with Titanium Backup. Hope it worked, thank for reading! If you have any issues, report to me!! Oh, and sorry for my english. I'm from Hungary :)
to root the Y200 you buy in Australia. (and other international english versions) (probably all versions) works 100%. cant garuntee any other country, but this information is a mixture of badly translated instructions in a few different countries 1. turn off "fast boot" in "applications" menu in settings 2. turn on "USB debugging" in "Development" in "Applications " in settings download http://www.android-hilfe.de/attachments/root-custom-roms-modding-fuer-huawei-ascend-y200/116790d1339017400-how-root-huawei-y200-english-international-thread-superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip and put it on your root SD card directory download on a WINDOWS computer http://www.android-hilfe.de/attachments/root-custom-roms-modding-fuer-huawei-ascend-y200/117105d1346088727-how-root-huawei-y200-english-international-thread-root_y200_v5.2_int.zip and unzip file into a new folder RUN THE INSTALL adb EXE FILE when u have run the install adb exe , plug in ur phone to computer & a new drive will appear in my computer. install the adb program files choosing either win 7 or XP (2 choices) HAVE THE Rootv5.2.bat FILE from zip ready to run on computer turn off phone. remove battery for 5 seconds . now we will change to custom recovery mode. replace battery, plug in via usb to computer & hold "volume up" & power button on at same time until logo appears on screen release up vol & power button & then immediately press "volume down & power button & hold until logo freezes / stays on screen / doesnt progress beyond the logo (you may to continually hold power button and only swap between vol up & vol down as alternative) run the BAT file from the root zip file u extracted wait for 10 15 seconds, then press RETURN .... will say stuff, then pause press RETURN again, repeat once more. it should say finished (hopefully) (or similar) now u have mod recovery mode. make sure u copied the Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip file u downloaded above to the root directory of ur SD card. turn phone off. remove battery for 5 - 10 secs. replace battery. hold Volume up button & power button on for 15 seconds (or until a text menu appears) navigate menu with vol up & vol down keys , power button selects. select install zip file from sd card. select Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip . will run script for very short time & display success message. now your phone is rooted. recommend titanium backup for all software install, installs bloatware etc. if any system apps wont remove (gives error) BLOATWARE FREEZER should work. enjoy
