Added a script as an attachment to this post that walks user through the removal of applications from /system without the user knowing how to use ADB.

I'm very happy with my purchase of the HTC Desire back in April this year, but have always thought battery life could be better and believe it should be the main aspect to improve with custom software.

I've read and experienced good things in regards to battery life with 2.29.405, so decided to make myself a ROM that's based entirely on it, with only removing applications I don't use, adding undervolt for even more battery saving and adding AP2SD which is essential due to the low internal memory.

I thought I would share it in case others may wish to try it out, I highly recommend the new radio.

With thanks to:
  • Paul - for rooting the HTC Desire
  • UnrEVOked - for making the above easier and finding ways around the new bootloaders
  • IEF and co - for the S-OFF hboot
  • Cyanogen - His Wiki on compiling all things Android and guides on how Android works
  • Richardtrip & snq- - helped a lot with questions I've had
  • Teppic74 - Getting me interested in ROM cooking, his modified AP2SD and scaling scripts
  • iscaela - Undervolt driver
  • dsixda - for the Kitchen

What you get:
  • ROM based on 2.29.405 WWE RUU posted here
  • Busybox (1.17.3)
  • Bash
  • Init.d support
  • NOT deodexed
  • AP2SD+ via EXT partition (Supports EXT2 and 3)
  • Read ahead value changed to 128, improves reading speed from the SDCard
  • Undervolt driver with -100mV on all freq's (Hex edited to support the Kernel from the RUU)
  • Moved hosts to /data to allow updating via AdFree Android application without the need to have S-OFF (do not use the symlink in AdFree Android)
  • Perflock disabled (Hex edited to support the Kernel from the RUU)
  • Updated applications
  • - REM GSD

Installation Guide

  5. Flash the .zip file

  7. Extract the contents of the ROM-Editor.zip
  8. Run the ROM-Editor.bat file
  9. Select option 1
  10. Read the warning

Hi, I installed it 3 hours ago and I'm trying it. It's very fast at now (I put LauncherPro Plus)! So, some question for you:

1) Can I put SetCPU? It will work?
2) If i'd like to uninstall some features like facebook, footprints ecc can I do it?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for my english and for my stupid question but hboot upgrade or not, and is german language supported?

It's not a stupid question. According to the language menu it supports:

English
English Irish
French
Italian
Spanish

It doesn't contain a hboot upgrade.

You can use German via More Locale2 from the Market, failing that I can try and add German support. I'm surprised a WWE ROM doesn't list German.

1) SetCPU should work yes, this ROM doesn't support overclocking but will allow underclocking.

2) You can remove any applications you want by booting into recovery and removing the .apk and .odex file via adb shell.

It won't take any more memory than the base ROM. Nothing gets installed to the /data partition until you setup phone preferences via the setup wizard, install system application updates via the market or restore backups. Also due to the removal of peep etc, the ROM takes up less space on the /system partition.

I've never used mod install location so I can't say how well it works, I do know that:

1. Not everything can be forced to the SD Card
2. Some applications like flash, third party keyboards and applications with widgets you use, don't like being installed to the SD Card

In regards to the Mirror, does the multi upload link not provide you with more choices that RapidShare? Unfortunately I'm away until the weekend so there's not much I can do until I'm back.

Hi again!
I've removed with adb the application as you said, everything went fine. Deodex ROM give me more pain, so I abandoned this idea. But now I've another question...can I change the BootScreen? How?

Push the bootanimation.zip of your choice to /system/customize/resource, via adb. As its in /system you'll need to do via recovery, unless you're S-OFF and you know how to mount the system as R/W whilst phone is running.

    Hi, I'm here again! Can I deodex your ROM with autodeodex from AmonRA? If I deodex it, then I can remove Application like facebook ecc simply from phone...but shall I remove HTC sense too?

    I manually inserted the settings on my Desire. (Only for the internet now) It would be nice a stock room with that "goodie" ;)

    that's weird man, I think mine was automatically set up...not sure though...
    if you need the settings for mms and internet in optimus, just create/mofify so you have the two apn's with these settings here
