I'm sure you've all been waiting on us to get the base ROM out to you, and we appreciate your patience with the technical difficulties that we have been experiencing. I took a look at the post Wozzy put up most recently about the base ROM that included all the features that they cut out.
This Diet Droid "slimmed" ROM is based off of Bury Boi's stock deodexed 2.4.330 with 2.4.29 contact apps. I have removed all bloat along with the widget apks. I haven't spent too much time on it, but I wanted to get it out for you all as a clean basic platform. It does still have blur as I do like the way it ties in Messaging and the Yahoo mail (don't worry this will receive some slimming as well). Social messaging app has been removed. Mediasync.apk was removed but media share is still showing up in app drawer. Maps and a few other Google addons that can be found in Market were removed, so that you can get the most up to date version. Backup assistant is gone, I was tired of getting connection errors from it when I wake up in mornings. I did not touch the framework.
If anyone knows the NFS shift apk please enlighten me as I would like to take it out. It's not too big a deal because at least it can be uninstalled.
I added the bootanimation that Wozzy added to his release from LFY aka LIQUID FROZEN YOUGURT. I plan to go back to the stock Google android animation in future releases.
I have not had time to figure out what else can further be removed. I will begin removing and testing over the next few days.
Install like any other zip file or ROM. Save .zip to SD card. Erase Cache and Data then install from .zip in recovery. I have tested this file and the downloaded file on my phone and can verify that they both work.
The first time the bootanimation goes on forever, be patient

With that said, enjoy and check back soon. I will try to get an update with where I'm at for you in the near future with an even more streamlined stock ROM. You don't drop 30lbs over night and neither does this ROM.
Oh, and Cheers! it's five O'clock somewhere
edit: in the past few minutes I have noticed a possible issue with Wifi connection cutting out. A reboot seemed to resolve issue. Will look into this and report back
