    I would like to gently customize a ROM for myself. I unzipped the latest one from XDA, and found subfolders much like those seen with ADB on a live phone. I want to do such thing as remove specific bloat apps, put in a Phone.apk with my own default caller pic, and a custom boot. It LOOKS like all I have to do is remove or replace the files, just as I would do in ADB, rezip the rom, and install. I assume I would zip with no compression. Is it really that simple?

    Honestly, the easiest thing to do is install it then remove the apps with root explorer.

    yea you can do that... and like said above just removing them from the rom already booted is easy

    Cool, thanks. I know I can do it already booted, but there is just something rather satisfying about having it done before loading the ROM. :D

    But it's so simple using a root explorer then just rebooting. Why bother with all the commands?

    'Cause if I do it before I load the ROM, I can just bulk select and drag all the apps into a different folder. Basically, mouse is easier then finger.
