Thanks to beanstown106 for the deodexed base, saved me a couple steps :) http://rootzwiki.com/topic/37445-romtwrp-stock-root-deodexed-insecure-kernel-vraljb/
Thanks to AdamOutler for the bootloader unlock

First ROM release in over 2 years! This is just a basic deodexed rom (for now). I wanted a debloated rom, and couldnt really find one with the stock feel, so I threw one together. There is still some work to be done on the debloat, and also some features that I want to add to this rom. Pretty much, this was built for me personally, just figure I would release and let everyone else enjoy it!

The big mod that I have already included has been ExtSd2InternalSd found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1772234
This swaps your internal and external sd cards, so your sd card functions just as you would expect if you've used any android phone pre-ICS. The requirement is that your sd card is exfat formatted.

I will release two versions, one with ExtSd2InternalSd and one without it. Let me know what yall think and have fun with it! This is going to be such a great device!

Just to be safe, I ALWAYS RECOMMEND FACTORY WIPE BEFORE INSTALLING ANY ROM!

12-21-12 - Ive been doing some testing with the perseus kernel found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2048013 I think the dev changed some mount points in the ram disk, because the script i have been using for extsd2internalsd stopped working. I made some changes to it, and seems to be working as expected. I will package it up and upload it tonight. Might build my own kernel this weekend to fix the mount point changes back to normal.

"Going to be a great device"


You mean "be a greatER device"? lol. Nice mod to the ROM with the internal external swap. Be nice to see that in all ROMs.

This sounds like a really cool ROM build, stock yet tweaked to make it custom enough. I look forward to what else you are going to do to it and the fact you built in the Ext.SD card as primary storage. Given the limited space on the GN2 its a must for it.

One question re: debloat part, not sure what you have removed yet so could you update the OP to reflect that and perhaps post some of the .apk files in case we want to add certain one back.

Thanks for the work you are doing.

Just noticed that we need to format the ext.SD card in exFat and not Fat32. I will have to reformat first then.

Do you plan to add any mods to add any app you want to the multi-window feature?

Possibly. I have a few things I want to add this, but have not had a lot of time to totally dig into this. I might try to keep this as close to stock as possible, there will be other roms that will have those features too, but time will tell.

When it comes down to it, I may just make an update.zip for the extsd stuff that should work on any tw rom

Cool, stock works for me as well. Less stuff that risks being broken but having it as an extra add on you can install makes it a bit easier than trying to tweak it manually.

Thank you!

This is just what I need. 300mb available free space :(
How do I revert to the standard version if somehow I don't like the Extsd2internalsd version?
