Ill have to look at number 5 when i get back on stock, i thought airplane mode deactivated everything when activated but was overidable on a chip by chip basis afterwards.
I would be up for mesia scanner being removed as long as it doesnt affect performance, Im sure i have deactivated before by removing a file but it caused all sorts of other problem maybe would test a separate release with it removed and give you some feedback.
where are the wallpapers stored?
I like Holo launcher some of those options appear to be in plus, ive requested some of these options from them already so who knows. Its much quicker, agreed.
