    So most of these roms are blurless, but what if I wanted to add some blur (like blur alarm clock for example).

    Adding blur_alarmclock.apk to /system/app and setting permissions will not do it.

    So the big question is...what are the minimum blur files that have to exist before anything works?

    FYI this is what I compiled from other forums...

    Blur alarm specific...
    Others blur stuff...
    So I guess it varies from ROM to ROM what you will need.

    If you're on a gb leak rom (apex, zs, liberty) you can use the extracted liberty customizer folder to install all or some of the blur apks. Just open it, pick what you want (ex. Blur alarm), and install. Easy. This does not work with cm though (at least in my case)

    I hate to bring up a now seldom talked about rom, but I always liked Squid's rom for the ease with which one could go from blur to blurless or anything in between.

    I know about the liberty customizer, but the email wasn't functioning properly.

    Squidly was my favorite...I ran it for 6 months.

    Adding blur to a blurless rom is like adding Budweiser to a good beer.

    Blur email app kicks the AOSP email app's butt...Blur Calendar is also superior. I have daily thoughts about going back to Zombie to get them back, it's a tragedy that no one is enhancing the AOSP email app/calendar.

    I do agree that blur camera is way better. Calendar: I have three kids so I don't have enough of a life to keep track of :p Alarm: an alarm is an alarm. Both aosp and blur alarms go RIIIIIINNNNGGGG. Email: I use Gmail only so I don't need it. Most ROMS out there have an add on for blur camera, or in my case, the MIUI camera. So you can see why I'm blurless :)

    Aosp alarm is jarring. The blur alarm had a gradual volume increase to wake you up gently. That's what I miss (yes, I know there are alarm apps that do that)

    I like jarring. Before I got this phone, I used to have my wife bite me between the toes to wake me up.
