Default Stopping apps from starting up

Is it possible to stop apps from starting up at all to speed up the boot sequence without

a) removing them
b) using a third party application

is there some boot file or something that can be edited?

From the maker of AutoKiller: http://www.androlib.com/android.appl...run-jjnmD.aspx - this is the one I use. I even donated and it allows you to continue to try to stop some apps from opening up independent of whether you ask them to or not. I have also heard of this one: http://www.androlib.com/android.appl...arts-jppi.aspx - but I have not tried this one. Hope this helps

I know about these =p

I'm looking for some edit to the actual ROM/ boot sequence, not an application that'll use up RAM (part of what I'd like to do is not use RAM)

Ohhh...that sounds like a lot of work to make something like that happen. Would be nice though. Way beyond my skills at the moment though.

This could be some interesting reading, although at this time in the morning, I can't even pretend I want to try to get it right now lol. http://www.androidenea.com/2009/06/a...-power-on.html - I'm thinking maybe something in the INIT needs to be modified? Anyway...bed time... lol
