*****Omegasuns App and Sense Removal Script*****

Version 2 now compliant with new Recoveries

This script was created to make removing bloatware, sense, HTC widgets and many of the safe apps from your EVO easy. I personally run pretty bare bone version of the roms I use. I remove Sense and most of the excess apps that i replace or dont use.Because this was so time consuming to do manually with how much i flash i started working on a script that allowed me to do this quickly.

I have followed many different threads listing what people have found is ok and what people have found is not ok to remove.

Please remember that this script removes the apps that I personally dont use or need. While some of the apps may not be considered bloatware y some I typically run a pretty bare system. Please see post 2 for instructions on how to modify this version of the script so that you can adjust it for your needs.


To Use:
1. Flash your new rom (you can use with your existing skip to step 3)

2. Boot up the phone fully

3. Install your launcher replacement and set it as default.

4. go into Friend stream and turn off auto-sync for Facebook(leaving contacts is ok)

5. reboot into recovery

6. Nand back up

7. flash the attached .zip

8. reboot

This will completly remove sense and the HTC apps/lockscreen as well as all peer networking and sprint apps except navigation, VVM, and promotion. It will also remove various other apps that have been found that when removed do not cause stability or other outstanding issues.

This script has been tested on Evio, Fresh, Damage Control, Koni's Elite, Myns, MikFroyo,and Virus Roms on several EVOs with out problems. I am not responsibility for boot loops, data loss, or damage done to your phone. PLEASE REMEMBER TO NAND BACKUP


Regaw_Leinad Has graciously created an app to allow you to edit this script and resign it easily. If you want to change anything in the script i highly suggest downloading it and using it to do so

you can get it

HERE

All you do is drag and drop the zip of choice (1 or the other of the 2 zips attached to the OP) on top of this program's icon, it will open the script for editing. Can be run from anywhere on the computer.

Steps for using RegawMOD Script Editor v1.0 Omegasun:
1. Drag and Drop zip on top of this programs icon
2. Edit Script when it pops up
3. Save Script, then close Notepad
4. Go back to program window, select YES to go on
5. The original zip is now updated with all of your changes and still signed!

NOTE: This will currently NOT work for the old attachment O_A_S_R_W_mail&browser_1.0.zip, because the zip can NOT contain the "&" symbol in the zips name.

If you downloaded the version with & in the name either change the name or redownload the corrected file.

A huge thanks to him for making this!



thank you to zergburger for maintaining a great thread with ok to remove apps, Calkulin for his sense removal zip It helped me verify the apks i have being removed. Another huge thanks to Regaw_Leinad for his app to edit the script as well as his easy signing app and Karadorde For creating a CM 7 version of the script (see 2nd post)

thanks for replying back to my in my Q and A thread. I modified your script a bit but I have a question. Why is there a delete for SYSTEM and DATA? Also, is it safe to remove livewallpaper picker? and what about weather?

I've been doing this manually on many of the roms that I use so this is great. It would be even greater if the script was modified, if possible, to place everything that has been removed in a folder on your sd card. This way if you do want something back on your system, you can easily reinstall it.

just a quick suggestion.
you are removing KEY apps so Please post alternative applications that people should download PRIOR to running your script.

such as.... dolphin hd to replace the browser.... handcent to replace messaging.. etcetc
you know as well as i do these kids around here are going flash this without reading a damn word and completely fvck their phones up.

offer your personally used replacement apps please.
