Arrow [Q] Get a Clean version of thunderbolt ? [no verizon crap]

Hey,

I'm not an owner of a Thunderbolt, but my wife is. She's annoyed with all the verizon crap on it. What would you guys recommend to do to have a perfectly clean rom ?
She still wants all the HTC Sense stuff and not get used to anything else.

My first though was to root it, and then with Titanium Backup just go over all the apps and uninstall them one by one. But if there is a clean rom that already has that I could be better.

Thank you

I have been flashing a lot of different roms lately but one sense rom I really like Skyraider Zeus. Very nice and stable rom for me.

KillaSense, FactorySense, Skyraider are all very clean stock roms that have all the Verizon bloat removed and all run very smooth.

just root the stock app and remove the apps you dont want. She will get rid of the crap & still have her stock rom that she is familiar with...

If you look through the ROMs, there are a couple that are bone stock with the exception of being rooted. Get S-off then install one of those and remove what apps you don't want.
Verizon HTC One M8

note: Anything I say may be completely wrong or just stupid. Take it with a grain of salt.

Thank you everyone, I've managed to do everything correctly. I've installed FactorySense. But I'll probably have to try another one because this one doesn't have the HTC Alarm clock app!!!!!

Just use Titanium Backup and "freeze" any of the apps you don't want. You'll need to root in order to use.

If you want, go here http://www.htcthunderbolt4g.com/htc-...erbread-leak)/ and you can download the stock rom that ships with the thunderbolt. Its the latest version and has all the bloatware from verizon removed (3.1a version) except the data usage app/widget

there is version 3.0a - rooted but nothing removed

& 3.1a - rooted and debloated as well as other tweaks

There are other roms around as well if this doesnt suit you

Thanks, this looks great, I think I'll try to install that tomorrow!

The only other rom I was looking at was the MR4:

But this one 3.1a is probably better right ? I need just the most stable one
