So, I don't know if everyone feels the same way I do, but on a 7" tablet I don't see myself using the "Mini Apps" that often so I went through and found a way to remove the Mini Apps application and the Mini Apps themselves.

Basically it just involves deleting these:

Any apps in System/app that has "Mini" in its name (Including minimode-res.apk).

Next remove System/framework/minimode.jar

Now the miniapps should be completely removed from your system after a reboot including the program that opens them and the arrow on the system bar. If you would like them back just reflash your current ROM or restore the backup THAT YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE!


Obviously if anything goes wrong it's not my fault including:

Thermonuclear War
Attack of the Unicorns
You'r tablet melting
Any divorces in your life
Etc.

Here is what it looks like afterwards. Click image for larger version

Excellent. This will be very helpful for the devs creating ROMs as well.

Indeed. It's already included in Fry ROM v4. I'm still testing it out and will commit more changes before release, but it's working. Great find.

Thanks,
C.

Our you could just rename them to be safe... Not have to make a backup.
Add like a 1 to each files name.
