    Do you know you can delete all those apps except for tutorials and Amazon Appstore? Just delete those apps which you don't want, at least BlackBerry let's you delete them, and not like other manufacturers, in which you have to root your smartphone to delete all the bloatwares. And you cannot delete any appstore from any smartphone .

    i delete the tutorials too. Just load up an old bar file of sys how-to and then it allows the tutorials to be taken away.

    Only coming back after a reboot because this Amazon stuff is baked in to the system which is the main problem of it.

    Some people are getting amazon app store and amazon store confused. With 10.3.2 there are now two amazon apps hard installed on your blackberry. An app for the actual amazon store and then the amazon app store.

    The Amazon store is the new one, I was surprised after installing 10.3.2.798 to see it and even more surprised to not have been able to remove it (unlike Facebook, Twitter...), because BlackBerry has never been into the bloatware business, this is new and may be disappointing but the OS is their property, whatever if they are taking wise decisions or not, only time will tell.

    It is installed by default, even if you don't open it.
    It only initialize when you open it for the first time (you can cancel it by select "Decline" on the permission prompt)

    Used to do that on the old pre OS-10.1.xxx and it was working on the Z10 but with the more recent OS versions it only let me copy older files on top of the latest ones but still don't let me delete this howto, help, and other.
    How old does this older files need to be what else did you do to allow Sachesi and DBBT to successfully allow to delete the files?

    Well after one successful remover I would not install this files anymore with any new leak to prevent getting this unable to remove tag set ever again.

    Sachesi have a checkbox called "Only install new apps". Clear that checkbox :P

    Well it's not a matter of installing older files via unchecked the box but deleting the files, no matter if used older or newer files no way to get rid of this files, tried Dev-mode restarted the device and tried again to delete, but still this files are remaining on the system.

    Looks like from a certain OS onwards in the past this files had a tag set for not able to be deleted.

    So still the question is how old does this files need to be?
    Trying files from OS-10.1.0.2354 to copy over OS-10.3.2.798 right now may that helps because at times this old OS was released it was still possible to delete any unwanted file out of the system.

    App Initialization is different from installation, without installation there is no way you can initialize an app.

    These bloatware are a pain in the neck. Since it cannot be permanently deleted, the best way is to throw them into a folder and be forgotten about. However, this may not work when installing future OS releases if they remove them from the folder and place them in the home screen again and you then have to return them to their rightful folder.

    Yes you can delete them, just download the latest apk file, and install over it. Then long press the icon, and delete them.

    In all seriousness the Amazon app the op is talking about in 10.3.2 (not the Amazon App Store) might have been at the request/demand of Amazon in exchange for allowing BB10 devices to use their ecosystem and offering some level of support for BB10 devices.

    Never cared for the Amazon app store, however them having the Amazon shopping app installed saved me the trouble. It's where I buy most of my replacement parts for cell phone repairs.

    But alas I do agree, bloatware suck and soon if they're not careful BB10 could become the next OS to avoid due to bloat.

    Hell even Samsung LG and Sony still haven't learned to not use bloatware.

    You keep using that word, "bloatware." I do not think it means what you think it means.
