Thx to attn1 for all the work on this. Allowed me to remove all the AT&T bloatware, app2sd to load A LOT more apps, and now I can switch to 2G at work during the day and preserve more juice for when I need it.
A couple of things I have noticed:
* boot time is much longer than the AT&T stock ROM
* UI feels ever so slightly more sluggish. Not terrible but noticeable
* seems to use more juice and data than the 2.1 stock ROM. I use Taskiller to kill off everything I need and I use exactly the same apps as with the stock ROM but the increase in data usage reported by 3G watchdog is substantial, around 2x. Have not been able to trace it yet.
Not complaining, just providing observations in case they are useful to attn1. Aria with FR007.
