I was pleasantly surprised there isn't really much bloatware on the phone...Just the "Boost Zone" and "Qualcomm Enhanced Location" apps...Virgin Mobile could learn something...

I've "disabled" twitter*, gmail, Friend Stream*, talk with no bad effects...

How do you remove HtcLinkifyDispatcher.apk and use the default ICS application chooser/link handler?
I've removed the app and edited /system/build.prop with ro.da1.endable=false and also added ro.da1.method=false as a last ditch effort. Cleared cache and dalvik cache, cleared all app defaults but I'm still not prompted for the default app.

Hi guys,
I just got this phone today, had an EVO Design 4G. I'm rooted and loving this phone, but i have a little issue maybe someone can help me with it.
Whenever I uninstall a system app or bloatware using Titanium Backup, after a reboot it is re-installed. I don't understand how or why this is happening. I've rooted and flashed roms on 4 different Android phones, and this one has me stumped.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried freezing the app with TiBu instead of deleting it. This way it will still show installed in system/apps but will not show on the device. I don't have your phone and unsure of the root method but I know that some devices reset things when rebooted such as recoveries and apps that are part of the system apps.

The system is somehow write protected ... You need to flash new kernel.

Been doing well. Coming off the HTC Evo Design for Boost. That was light years better than the prevail, but I have to say.....The prevail was truly "The little phone that could"!!

so let me ask you,
I unlocked this phone and then i flashed recovery. From there I flashed SuperUser in CWM.
That is all I did. Do I also need to flash Busybox? or is that part of the SuperUser?

Does anyone know if there's a way to run a dependency analyzer for apps that let you know what apks not to remove that a particular app needs to run properly? Obviously, there are many apps that are easy to recognize and can be removed but some HTC apps take the place of stock ICS apps that don't need to be removed.

Did you fish Shinru kernel? That's the only way I was able to install busybox.

My speaker doesn't work after I use the stock visual voicemail, I have to do a full shutdown for it to work again. All my sounds come from the earpiece afterwards.
A bit of a pain, anyone else having this problem?

Default Removing more bloatware...HTC customized apps

I'm removing HTC customized apps like messaging, contacts, calendar, clock, music, etc. and installing stock ICS apps from a CM9 ROM. Should I integrate these to /system/app/ or leave them as user installed apps?

Am I asking the wrong questions, inappropriate questions, need to handle through PM? I thought we were talking about removing HTC bloatware.

Removing contacts will cause the dialer to fc. You can remove MMS.apk and a few other stock HTC apps but not contacts, dialer, and on certain ROMs removing email.apk will cause camera.apk to fc. Any system apps removed need to be replaced in the system partition. Hope that answers any questions you might have.

Thanks.

Yep I realized after I posted above that the phone and contacts are tied in together. I left the stock HTC lockscreen because if you remove it, you get the stock ICS lockscreen but you have to unlock the screen before you can answer a call

So far I've replaced Calendar, MMS, Music, Clock, Calculator, and removed a good bit of the HTC bloatware. Getting stock ICS 'Settings' is another challenge I'm not sure is possible without fc's and not worth the trouble.

Still stumped with HtcLinkifyDispatcher.apk and how to get the normal default app handler prompt.

Last time I searched for it I could not find it... wasn't in play store... wasn't first few links I clicked... I have automatic backups of all my apps so I've been using an old version for over a year now... adfree updates the file every time the phone boots so blocked ad sites are always up to date...

However thanks for the link to the newest version : )

Hi.

Squerl, I'm trying to do something similar here.

I already moddified old.splatterhand's flashable JB Stock rom to remove a lot of apps to make it lighter, it's working great, but now I want to "desensify" this rom.

I managed to replace some apps, like the browser, calc, calendar, gallery, camera etc... by switching the apk's in the system/app folder of the rom.zip, but some other ones are a little tricky.
For example, JB keyboard is working perfectly if installed afterwards, but it FCs if I put it directly in system/app, or if I move it there once the rom is installed.
It's about the same thing for sms/mms apps, email.

Do you guys have any advice or any good forum topic for me ?

Same problem with the lockscreen if I remove the HTC one, but Holo lockscreen seems to work ok, fyi.

Thanks a lot !
