Default Removing sense

Is it possible to completely remove sense UI for a sense Rom to become aosp? I recently used a desensify script on a Rom but sense is still there. I'm guessing rosie is no longer there, I'm using another launcher now. The widgets and lockscreen are gone too. The contacts, messages, camera, and other behind things are still there.

Why not just run a aosp rom if that's what you're trying to achieve anyway?

I've had problems with video chatting on other aosp roms. I figured I'd have a better chance in removing sense on a Rom that video chatting does work on.

You can remove sense. If you do this, you'll have a 'senseless' ROM. You have to put a launcher on it and you'll need to find alternative widgets, etc.

I used to do this. I liked that I could have whatever launcher I wanted but still have the sense camera and dialer.

Also, the ROM flies even faster once you get little miss Rosie out of the picture...


BTW, the only aosp that I've tried with functioning Skype is miui.

But nowadays I stick to Sense ROMs mostly

What did you use to remove miss rosie? I would use miui but I use 4G often, so I need it working.

This is what I tried but not sure if it took it out completely. I want my battery last longer than sense roms at least almost like aosp roms.

First install a third party launcher set it as default then with root explorer go to system\apps and delete rosie that's it

After I had installed my launcher of choice, I used a file explorer to clean out the ROM as I saw fit.

I doubt its truly necessary to clean out anything deeper than apk's.

Delete Rosie and the sense Widgets basically.
