[Note. If you root, you do it on your own risk. I'm not responsible if you brick your phone]

Next? About 'Root App Delete' What I removed (and survived) ..Oh, I almost forgot, the question: Why? Note that rooting is not the cure, but at least it provides a bit more breathing space.

Well, that's all folks. Hope that this quide helps someone.

[Update 2013] I installed 2.3.6 "LL1" firmware update with Kies and it went fine. I had to re-root my device though, but that went fine as well.
(I think I had LC1 version previously).
