Default [CM 10.1] My CWMR flashable zip to remove some apps

This is only for the official CM 10.1

CM Roms are already light weight Roms compared to stock Crapsung firmwares but still I find some of the apps unnecessary for me.
So I made this CWMR flashable zip to remove unnecessary apps.

I could have made a custom GAPPS zip but there are some apps that come from CM Nightly that I don't need. So instead of downloading the nightly and deleting the apps, I flash the Nightly as it is then flash my zip to remove these apps.

Apps Removed

Apollo
Browser
Calendar
Email
Exchange
CMWallpapers
Galaxy4
Gmail
GmsCore
HoloSpiralWallpapers
LiveWallpapers
MagicSmokeWallpapers
NoiseField
PhaseBeam
PhoneSky
QuickSearchBox
Stk
Talkback
TVOut
VisualizationWallpapers
VideoEditor
VoiceDialer

Why did I remove Google Play (PhoneSky.apk) and Google Play Services (GmsCore.apk) ?
Because my zip will install the latest version of both.

Instructions (make sure you are on a safe kernel) :
For Full Wife
Boot into recovery
Factory reset
Flash Official CM 10.1
Flash GAPPS 12/12/12
Factory Reset
Flash SuperSU (to avoid root issues)
Mount System
Flash my Test.zip
Reboob

To Upgrade
Flash CM 10 zip
Mount System
Flash my Test.zip
Wipe cache and dalvic cache
Reboob

If you do not want to remove some of the apps listed above, edit updater-script yourself!

Feedbacks are welcome.

Use notepad++ to edit updater-script

Default Need to mount system

Thanks for the idea. This is useful.

However, for this to work (at least on my devices), I think you will need to mount /system in your updater-script. Without it, the script won't work.

You can manually mount system.

I'll update the zip this weekend with new updater script that uses busybox.
