Root Apps safe to remove?

I would advise staying away from removing apps except for things like metro apps or carrier specific apps. Most of the Samsung included apps are so intertwined with each other that you remove one they all crash.

Thanks guys.

A good general rule is that if it doesn't have an icon in the app drawer and you don't know exactly what it does leave it alone.

I have several photos that are in chrome/have the chrome icon on them in my gallery. I want to edit or delete several of them but am unable to. Does anyone know the answer to this problem?

You are talking total BS. I had over 230 system apps, now I have 46 and my system runs fine!
