I want to get rid of all the shite I don't use off my phone...Google + and hangouts and what have you.
I hate the idea of unused junk on any device I own,but rooting seems to be the only way.Seema like it might be a bit sketchy though

Pretty sure that the hastle that you're hunting out will be greater than the hastle of having stuff you don't use on your phone. I would say it would be fun to do, if you don't mind a load of hastle and have loads of time to kill. Plenty of forums out there. Good luck with your new hastle! How to Root Samsung Galaxy S5

I did it .to two phones. First time, I read the instructions and thought "that'll take an hour MAX" and it took about six hours, second time it ended up taking the whole day. It was worth it the first time as the phone had practically no memory at all and stupid apps were using it. With this one I've forgotten if I'm enjoying any benefits from it or not.

Fuck it so.

I was prepared to devote 30mins to it.

On my S4 there's the option to hide/disable most of that shit. I've installed custom ROMs before, but decided it's not worth the time in this case.
