M8 brings several changes in the apps. I tested some stuff (updated M8 from M7) :

CMAccount.apk may cause problems (removed it, then added it again and going back to home was running first time assistant).
Lockclock.apk can't be removed anymore, it causes androidui error at boot (up to M7 it could be removed) because there's no way anymore to disable it. You can delete it, but at start there's at least one message box to close.

I removed lots of safe apps, but no way, I got random bugs :
Apollo, Basic Dreams, Browser, CellBroadcastReceiver, CMFileManager, CMWallpapers, DownloadProviderUI, DSPManager, Email, Exchange2, Galaxy4, LatinIME, Mms, PhaseBeam, VideoEditor, VoicePlus, WhisperPush.

I eventually went back to M7, it caused too many bugs for me (FC at start, random wallpaper errors, ...).
I think I'm going to build a M8 zip with all apks I don't want in a bak folder, add some GApps and some of my apps/data and flash from full wipe, I guess the M8 needs to regarding problems I have with...

Oh, by the way I guess I may script a cleaner. It would be easier for me and I would share it with no problem.

Just make sure you've ADB, debugging enabled, USB cable and pop corn

Not had cm on my device in a while, but I believe cmhome is similar to Google now and it ties in with trebuchet. Try deleting it, shouldn't cause any problems.

Thank you, just deleted it, everything is ok. If it's for trebuchet is completely useless for me, i use Nova launcher

Have a great day my friend!

Yupp! But if you remove lockclock.Apk and deskclock.Apk you lose clock on homescreen and locksreen, I left them in as I think most folk use them. I also noticed if you replace them with 3rd party ones from play store they tend to have higher battery drain. Cheers
