As always, performing a "nandroid backup" from Clockwork Mod is recommended as a precaution.
Use this at your own risk!
An Epic 4G with Clockwork Mod recovery installed (preferably 126.96.36.199).
A text editor to edit the config file.
Note:: The EB13 files are from deodexed EB13, and are intended to be used on an EB13 based Rom.
Note:: The EC05 files are from deodexed EC05, and are intended to be used on an EC05 based Rom.
This is a configurable zip that has the ability to selectively remove and restore system apps.
This is a follow up to this proof of concept.
Selectively remove and / or restore any of the 66 system apps listed below.
User configurable by editing a config file that is placed onto the SD card.
[Download EB13 zip package here.]
[Download EC05 zip package here.]
This download files are not flash-able zips! (The flash-able zip is inside the downloads)
#1:: Extract the 2 files that are in the zip package onto your computer.
#2:: Copy the "system_apps.zip" onto your SD card.
#3:: Make the desired changes to the "system_apps.cfg" file, changing "no" to "yes" as desired.
For example, to remove qik, change
remove.system.qik=yesNote:: If you don't make any changes to the "system_apps.cfg" file, the zip will not do anything other than output text!
Note:: Make sure your file is saved with unix line endings (Windows users do not create any new lines and you should be OK).
#4:: Copy the "system_apps.cfg" onto the root of your SD card ("/sdcard/system_apps.cfg").
#5:: Use Clockwork Mod recovery to install the "system_apps.zip".
AppWidgetPicker was taken from Bonsai 3.0.1, but originated here.
LbsTestMode was taken from here, credit goes to BThomas22x it seems.
The rest of the EB13 files came from Dameon87's Stock Deodexed EB13 Rom.
The rest of the EC05 files came from Bonsai4All_EC05_UnTouched.
I have confirmed with k0nane that none of these files should effect the CIQ removal.
(With the possible exception of EC05's SprintID "W_Installer.apk" file, but who in their right mind is going to install that?)

What happens when the system_apps.cfg file is missing or in the wrong location?
What happens if I change "no" to something besides "yes or "no" in the config file?
What happens if I did not use unix line endings?
Why does it take so long to boot after running this?
This has been tested and confirmed working on an Epic 4G running Bonsai 4.0.0.
Update for EC05. (03-22-2011) Initial release. (03-08-2011)
