[TOOL] Bling's cRaZy Debloater Collection
So, as I've finally started test out all the different ROMs on this forum (and on others) for the HTC Amaze, I've also begun to develop specific debloater tools for each one. Eventually of course my goal is to create my own ROM, but seeing as how I'm still learning a lot of the developing techniques, it's going to be a while. But, as a minimalist, and an Android purist, most of the apps that comes with the Amaze is, at least to me, crap. There are some useful apps developed by HTC, but not many, and 95% of them I can live without (or replace with a Google or 3rd party app that works just as well or better).
I'm rambling, I know, sorry. But to get to the point, I plan on releasing a customized Debloater tool for most ROMs already developed on this forum and others. The first ROM I developed this debloater tool for was XBoarder's Bulletproof, which most of you already have seen (that thread will be linked to later on).
Of course, proper credit must be given where proper credit is due, and I will never develop a customized debloater for a ROM without giving credit to it's respective developer. But, seeing as how these Debloater tools don't actually borrow anything developed ROM, and are simply customized to work better with them (rather than say a one-size-fits-all tool), I do plan on taking credit for developing them. So please don't steal them and re-use them in an app or one-click tool without giving proper credit, because I do take my own personal time to do this. Thanks.
1. ClockworkMod 220.127.116.11 (or later) or HTC Sync and HTC drivers installed on PC.
2. The ROM for which you are downloading the specific Debloater.
3. Android SDK installed and system variables are set properly on your Windows machine (btw this won't work for linux, that may come a bit later). Instructions for this are found in the quote below. Copied straight off'a Cyanogenmod Wiki. Adjust folder paths to your android-sdk folder as necessary.
CWM RECOVERY INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
Go to the Control Panel, and select the System Properties (Windows XP) or System (Windows Vista/7).
Select the Advanced settings;
Windows XP: Click on the Advanced tab.
Windows Vista/7: Click on Advanced system settings on the left.
Click on Environment Variables.
Under the "System variable" section, you will look for "Path". Double-click on it.
In the "Variable values" section, add at the very end the location of the tools & package-tools folder, with a semicolon separating these two paths from the rest, e.g. %SystemRoot%;C:\android-sdk\platform-tools;C:\android-sdk\tools
1. Plug into PC via usb.
2. Boot phone into recovery.
3. Select Mounts & Storage, then select 'Mount /System'.
4. Download attached .zip file with your PC, unzip to wherever.
5. Run the .bat file with the 'CWM' ending. I put several pause commands in the file, so if you come up with some errors you can just copy them straight from command prompt and paste them here.
6. Reboot phone.
HTC SYNC INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
1. Plug phone into PC via USB, change connection type on phone to HTC Sync.
2. Wait for phone to find HTC Sync on PC.
3. Download attached .zip file with your PC, unzip to wherever.
4. Run the .bat file with the 'Sync' ending. I put several pause commands in the file, so if you come up with some errors you can just copy them straight from command prompt and paste them here.
5. Reboot phone
I claim no responsibility for anything this does lulz
No but seriously, this should work fine without causing any damage to your phone. I've tested it multiple times already. That being said, if it does f up your phone, I have no obligation to fix it. Use this at your own risk.
