    Okay so I think what I want to do with the final release is remove just about everything that is not essential to the phones performance and aren't key features/apps. One thing I was thinking was to get rid of a few apps most people dont use and then providing update.zips to replace those "missing" apps. What do you guys think of this idea?

    Some of this apps I'm thinking about are



    - Setup wizard

    - Protips

    - Email

    - Carhomelauncher

    - Genie widget

    - Protips

    - MIUI keyboard (stock is smaller by a lot)

    - Wired Tether

    - Wireless Tether

    There are a few others but I dont know them off hand. I am not necessarily doing this regardless of what people want. I just want some feedback. Also, if theres apps you want removed (or added) that I didn't list let me know.

    Im not a user of any of those apps so you can axe those in my book.

    I would have to take a stroll through the stock apps to give you any more though.

    I like the idea however.

    That works for me too...love seeing more memory available. As long as we can install the parts we need I think it's a great way to go.
    This model sure is clean and smooth. :heart:

    I know your goal here is a clean rom...I do have a question though.
    After running Miui through it's iterations I have grown fond of the folders for grouping and the stock folders aren't so attractive.
    Is there a way to do folders with a separate app that allows you to see the contents like Miui?

    One good thing about miui is the minimal memory. I'm all for getting rid of stuff unused

    Engrish? Lol I never thought about removing other languages but that's a great idea. I might keep Spanish though. Its a really good idea either way.

    Man I can't really think of anything else I would want other than the fixes your making. Insane battery life with a great look. Everything about the rom is amazing. Next step would be yo make sure other android devs and Verizon cathes on. Also like to give thanks to davros great theme man.

    I just wanted to say I love your theory behind your roms.

    I'm not dissing any dev. But most roms out now are IMHO cluttered. They take out bloat but then add there own bloat.

    I'm really digging this clean and minimalist approach.

    Thanks for your work.

    This is a fantastic idea. I would much rather spend time getting a few apps from the market then spending time in a terminal trying to get rid of most of them.

    Clean, smooth, fast with amazing battery life is why I love your roms. Oh and having the black bar option is the icing on the cake!

    Keep it up!
