Consolidation of apps
For kicks, I tried to integrate all system app updates into the ROM. It would seem all but two work, while retaining full functionality of those that are integrated. Touchless Control and Active Display won't work, as I can see, if their updates are integrated. Some apps were faulty after integration, and needed to be uninstalled, installed from the Market, and converted to a system app...with data restored afterwards. Titanium Backup and SafeStrap RULES!!!! There is still 850Mb left in the system, so next is to drop a few 'normal' solid apps into the system. I've been advised to not integrate any launchers. Cool. It pretty much goes without saying that I do have a clean backup of the Stock system partition. I'll let things simmer first, to see whether everything can survive as a daily ROM.
fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.
