I've updated the OP with a link to a text document containing a very thorough list of what has been removed from the stock ROM for my build, for those that are curious.

And thanks for the comments brad and CTB. :)

Good luck! It should work without issue. For all intents and purposes this is the stock ROM minus all the bloat.

I'll do my best to answer any questions you may have.

Google Search and its widget are both fully removed from this ROM, so inherently that would be the cause of the problem. :)

Glad to hear it flashed without problem tho. Thanks for trying it out!

Thanks for the comment guys, glad this ROM can help.

I did not remove HtcFacebook.apk because it is used solely for sync purposes and is part of the framework; built into certain menus.

HTC's version of the facebook app is FriendStream, which I have removed. And of course I removed the actual Facebook.apk app.

I just wanted to clarify this for others that may read through this thread.


Further reading for anyone that's curious about this kind of thing:

HtcFacebook.apk, Flickr.apk, and SocialNetworkProvider.apk are all aquainted. The first two are used for syncing purposes; photos, contacts, etc. The latter is the provider. These are not actual "apps" persay, but are ingrained into the OS. For instance, go into the Gallery, tap menu, and select settings. Notice "Facebook" and "Flickr" in there? Removing the three APKs above will NOT remove these options from the settings menu. It's in the framework.

That is not to say however that it not safe to remove those APKs. It is in-fact safe to remove them. Many people do without consequence. I personally prefer to leave them intact. They are dormant unless you use them to sync with those services. And because they are so tiny their impact on your available internal storage is nill.

Yes this little guy is AMAZING on battery life. Not to mention the remarkable stability and smooth operation.

For instance I'm currently roughly at 50% battery left while on the battery 1d 12+ hrs. I've had calls, lots of texting, a little gaming, web browsing, listened to music, lots of stuff on this charge alone.

My current Up Time is 130 hrs 28+ mins. Up time being since the last time I rebooted. Not a single hiccup. I love this build.

I can imagine battery life would only get better with a kernel like Freedom and underclocking to around 800MHz. Only reason I haven't done so is because I have zero complaints about the performance of the stock kernel. One of those "if it's not broken, don't fix it" things lol.

    Wow okay I didn't expect this kind of response. Since there's interest, I'll prepare a release and get it up asap! Stay tuned..

    Just to let everyone know I'll have it up tonight. Sorry it took so long! It's ready now but I have to head to work and don't have the time to upload and link it right at this moment unfortunately. "Tonight" may mean early early morning, just depends when I get off.

    Hey everyone. I wanted to stop in and apologize for not being around much lately, providing support, answering questions, chit-chatting, etc. etc. Life's gotten a little hectic lately and I haven't had much, if any, time to devote to developing and what not.

    I'm a professional poker dealer and the casino I work at is losing a dealer. The poker room manager decided to divvy up hours instead of bring in a new dealer. On top of that this is the time of year where business starts to really pick up.

    To sum it up I've been working a lot more hours. It's exhausting work. Not because of the activity of dealing cards, but because of the amount of people I have to associate with. Emotionally it's very exhausting lol.

    Anyway, I am still around and am still active. I decided to hold off on releasing the new barebones edition I was working on. I completed the final build and testing went great. However, I realized it wouldn't appeal to the masses. Reason being it is an ultra-stripped ROM. In regards to battery life, performance and responsiveness it is top-notch and super-stable. I ran it for over a week without a single reboot and it still ran slicker than greased moose poop.

    So what's the downside? All the niceties and conveniences have been stripped out. The rom is extremely lightweight. The zip it just a touch over 100 MB. Basically it's just the bare OS with the Google Services Framework left intact. All the "flashy" stuff was 86'd. I removed some 30+ megs of "junk" over and above my currently released barebones rom. Think smartphone with all the smart removed lol.

    So in saying, I don't think many people would find it useful unless you are an elite minimalist like myself that cares more about functionality and performance over convenience and aesthetics.
