Hello everyone, I've been playing with my defy on 2.51.1 blur for a while, trying to deblur it to the bone I removed a lot of stuff without messing with the standard phone operations like sms or mail sync, and I freed up almost 100mb of RAM.
Now I'm fine tuning my removal procedures but I'd like to start a sort of "mapping" of the remaining apps, in order to avoid renaming the wrong apk and finding myself with some broken funtions, which I'll probably discover in a month or so when I'll have forgot all my tweaks..

So here we are, the next list is the "non standard" apps I left untouched, mainly because I did not know what they do and cannot find any useful info online.
They may be "blur" or may not, so help identifying their usage would be good

just to clarify something, I know I left some blur apps in the "untouchable" list, but I did on purpose for different reasons. Sometimes an app is needed to properly use the contact list or send sms, sometime removing it made the phone really slow.. so I left them unrenamed

Well, as the APK's in the system/app folder differ depending on the ROM you use, this list might not be useful for all roms, but thanks for sharing, i hope this helped removing bloatware for many people.

Good work! Think it would be a good idea to put the actual lists in spoiler tags so they're easier to scroll through

extreme moto deblur.bat (pastebin.com)

\\\ Before RUN, install any HOME app, like launcher PRO / go launcher ex / etc.
\\\ Remove "%~dp0\adb" shell rm system/app/Swype.apk string, if you need swype.
\\\ Also, will be nice if busybox are installed.


-save as ANY_NAME.bat
-put in ADB dir
-RUN.

DON'T RUN this if you not fully understand all string in this file.

I deleted blurhome.apk and found myself with 100% cpu occupacy all the time, as soon as I put it back where it belonged the cpu usage returned to normal so... not a good idea to remove blurhome, believe me.
as soon as I remove voice recognition I get an error popup which won't go away even if I reboot the phone, it keeps popping out, so voice recognition has to stay
quickoffice has nothing to do with blur, it's an application I might want to use, same for revolver and amazon. I mean, I DO remove them, but they're not blur related
