Anything like that existing now, or a list of apps that can be "safely" removed?
Adding a "MEE TOO" to your question.
I've had this phone a week after breaking my vs980 (I mean crunch, hardware) and in the week I've had the i605 I've spent more time reading, and reading, and READING (and goin, oh holy crap.... this s**** is serious!!!) trying to figure out how to make the phone usable.
On MY terms, ha ha.... From what I see, some of the Dev's that make the ROM's from stock are stripping out SOME of the "bloat" but even the stripped stock ROMs are 4x more footprint than AOSP. From what I understand if we have a 4.4.2 phone we can't go to AOSP ROMS. I still find that hard to believe but I've made some expensive bricks (and learned alot unmaking the bricks) being impatient and just "assuming" well if THIS works, then, in theory, THIS^2 will work.... Ha ha.... I'm trying to be more patient and careful.
I'm not sure how to go about asking the very busy Dev-Guru's how to pare the thing down to the bare bones (or offer some clumsy help) Or at least point to the comments in the source code that will instruct...
