The purpose of this ROM was to make the fastest, smoothest and best battery life ROM out there. With the newest TMO radio, which was packed with this ROM, i get 2 full days battery life. (im in california, individual results may vary on location.)

I am also minimalist and hate anything unnecessary on my cell. I needed a way to "clean" install the newest OTA and pick and choose the apps that i really need. soooo.....

I stripped pretty much everything out of it for speed and efficiency. I get 250+ mb free ram on boot.


Features

This ROM is based off the newest 2.16 OTA update, rooted, and with all bloat removed. It is completely stock, except for the addition of launcher pro

All unnecessary apps removed, get what you want from the market
All stock ringtones removed
All notification sounds removed
All stock wallpapers and live wallpapers removed
All but smallest alarm sound removed
All TTS removed except for US english (can be easily installed in settings, voice input/output, install voice data)
Launcher2 replaced with launcher pro
Official ROM size 117mb, G2 Slim 72mb

To add your own ringtones//notifications create thier appropriate folders on the root of your SD card:

media/audio/notifications
media/audio/ringtones

compatible audio files will show up in your settings

4.Once in recovery, use the trackball to hover over "install zip from sdcard". Click with the trackball to select this option.
5.Select "choose zip from sdcard".
6.Select "-=SuperWipeG2+ext4=-.zip" and "Yes - Insall -=SuperWipeG2+ext4=-.zip". Let the installation run; once finished, it will automatically reboot into recovery.
7.Scroll down to "advanced" and click.
8.Select "Wipe Dalvik Cache" and "Yes - Wipe Dalvik Cache"

Thanks for posting.

Only thing to mention is that to cut it back a bit more you could de-odex it?

I was thinkin about deodexing, I read online about the pros and cons of odex and deodex.

I came up with odexed is a lil faster, but cannot be themed. I need to read more, wut do u guys think??

I was under the impression 90% of roms are de-odexed/zipaligned, odexing for space and zipaligned for performance (but I think benefit of zipaligning is negligible?)
