Bloatless FroyoZone

Based on - CM6 RC3


**** PLEASE READ EVERYTHING ****

**** I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR NEGATIVE OUTCOMES - USE AT OWN RISK!******


Cyanogen's Pre-Req's Remain for this ROM

After reading the Barbones wiki - http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Barebones, I decided that I a better froyo experince could be had if I removed what I didn't/never use.

This is my first ROM modification that I'm posting (I've modded roms before but kept em to myself due to adding paid apps into the base build). Most of the questions that are to be had here, have already been answered in other threads (use the search button!)

This is not meant to be used by n00bs!
This is meant for advanced androiders that know what they're doing and how android works. So questions about how to do this and that, why is this and that, will not be answered (as I said before, already been answered in other threads, so stop being lazy and look for it).

Any other questions are fine though.


The following has been removed from the 8/14/2010 nightly build:
(This is all to my preferences; Fully Tested on my MT3G. Should work on G1 but I don't own one, so a G1 tester confirmation would be helpful)

If options you need were removed, so what, download another ROM and GAPPS package.

---TO INSTALL---
Do you really need to know how to do this? This is just a mod.

RECOMMENDATIONS -

System Recommendations:
CM Parts:
- Dithering Off
- JIT Off
- No CompCache
- Lock Home in Memory

Spare Parts:
-Animations: Fast or Off

Stock Settings:
-Privacy settings - Back up my data - Off

Market - Downloads - Notifications: Off

Patches/Scripts/Etc.

=LiveWallpaperPicker (Live Wallpapers are not designed for D/S hardware)
=Music.apk (Better options in the market; don't use my phone for music for batttery conversation)
=Protips.apk (Who cares about this!?!? I sure don't!)
=RomManager.apk (Rom Manager has been updated a few times and the CM version is now old)
=SoundRecorder.apk (The icon is ugly and plain; pick your own recorder from the market)
=SpeechRecorder.apk (Same as above)
=term.apk (I prefer to use Better Terminal Emulator Pro, no use in having two terminal apps)
=voicedialer.apk (I never use this since I'm never driving or using a bluetooth headset)
=vpnservices.apk (I never use this)
=All ringtones and notification (one stayed -Drip) sounds (I use my own/removed for system space)

---ROM Additions--
Toggle 2G

---GAPPS Removals---

=VoiceSearch.apk (Removed to update to Market version)
=Maps (Newer version in market)

Ok, try running a fix permissions. If not, send me a logcat. My intuitions is telling me that it could be the launcher. Will check when I get home.

Still trying to figure out why this is "Advanced Users Only".

Flash ROM, use it.

Not so advanced, but good work I guess.

I think when he says that he means if you have to ask questions on how to set it up or how to fix your bootloop (when you prolly just forgot to wipe) don't install. He doesn't want to have to walk every person who doesn't understand how to set up swap or how to remove or add app through the processes. And i totally agree with him. Many rom pages get cluttered (over 200 pages) with a bunch of useless crap like how much swap people or using when they should be posting logcats or reporting problems. Much stuff like setups vary on what and how the user uses the phone for. So the chance of one person set up will prolly only work about 5% of the time. See even this post is useless but you asked so i answered. Again this is my opinion on why he said that.

If my head had a nail stuck on top of it, you've just hit it!
