For those that want to remove the Sense launcher & widgets from any ROM, this zip will do just that.

Make sure you already have a 2nd homescreen app installed before flashing because if you don't, the phone WILL NOT boot


Also do a backup before flashing

That didn't work. No signature and verification failed.

Update: Signed file and it works now. I attached the file below.

Wow, what a great idea dude

This makes so much sense.

I agonized over trying to come up with a way to make a simple app that ran a script full of rm's or something back when I had my Hero.

Haven't tried this yet but, nice work either way.

Do you have a list of what this flash removes? I've done this manually and there is A LOT of crap to get rid of. Want to see what this flash specifically removes if possible.

Thanks!

Yes, please. I would like a list of which files this specifically removes. I'm picky like that. I'm always a little weary about running things like this without knowing exactly what it is doing.

we're not all as gifted as you... thanks.
Is everything running properly with all the HTC stuff removed? Do accounts sync properly, do apps such as alarm clock work properly, etc?
