Default [ROM]BareBack RLS2 [8/20/2014]

Welcome to Bareback for the HTC One M8



What is this?
This is a Highly stripped down sense rom, designed to give the best of both worlds, a fully featured stock rom, but stripped of a lot of the HTC bloat that comes with it.

a short video tour of the rom


ROM Features
-2.16.654.4 HK base
- rooted
- busybox
- Insecure boot with init.d
- heavy debloat ( rom sits around 760mbs)
- prism, and blinkfeed social items removed (blinkfeed launcher can be installed from the play store but facebook and stuff won't work because the plugins are removed)
- moved a lot of the google apps to the /data partition
- added Launcher3 (from paranoid android 4.44)
- removed htc weather and replaced it with Genie Widget from Nexus 5
- removed world clock and replaced it with Deskclock from Nexus 5
- themed the systemUI a bit to give it a more AOSP vibe
- converted most of the audio files to mp3 to save a bunch of space
- removed most of the wallpapers
- added the stock GEL kitkat wallpaper (purpleish moutain one)
- APM no kid mode (thanks nfinitefx45)
- generic status bar icon with a bunch of stuff hidden

RLS 2
- further debloat (removed sense weather animations since the clock is gone)
- added the default notfication sounds back as flac so that sounds work right out of the box
- got rid of the google plus plugin that was causing the sense pack error from before
- removed sense calculator added in the stock android calculator
- added a 4th wallpaper that enables the 4th theme to be used (the darker one)
- updated a couple of the stock apps (adds space but, it's space that would have been used anyway)
- changed out email client, with google's email
- changed calendar with google calendar
- probably more

Future/todo
- a little more themeing
- change some app icons with their holo counterparts

Download RLS2

Download RLS1

YOU MUST BE ON LATEST FIRMWARE WITH UPDATED HBOOT OR YOU WILL HAVE WEIRD BOOT ISSUES ALSO S-OFF IS PREFERRED THIS IS YOUR ONLY WARNING

Latest Firmware Downloads



Bugs:
- Wifi calling in the app drawer gives a permissions error use it from the settings menu if you want to use it, i might look into a fix, but it's not really an issue for me)


Adding Some Sense apps back:
- Good News is HTC has been putting a lot of the HTC apps on the play store and you can install them again on this
- HTC service pack will be required, this is also available in the market install that then the apps of your choice


Q&A
Q: Will you post the apps you removed?
A: probably the social app plug ins i'll have a zip for, but as far as everything i pulled nope no plans
Q: Will you add this feature?
A: Nope this was something i did in my spare time
Q: I bricked my phone or didn't follow your instructions will you help
A: I'll give it a shot, but it will be on my time scale, and i'll probably make you feel bad for asking
Q: if i Threaten to go back to another rom will you listen to my requests?
A: Nope it will actually make me want to help you less
