    I know this is redundant, i just cant seem to find the thread explaining it

    id like to remove apps and widgets that i dont intend on ever using.

    no interest in restoring them, i want to make myself a stripped down speed-deamon version of my current rom (SR3.3.1) which i love. If i need any of the stuff back ill just flash a new rom.

    thank you

    thats the first thing i did lol, i only see 1 and its a guide to root.

    as i type this im realizing how dumb i will feel when i actually open that thread and see a link on how to do what i want lol .... here goes ..

    EDIT, sonofa .... the title is misleading! Common at least agree with me there!! LOL!!

    Thanks for pointing me. looks like im all set.

    I thought i remember reading of an app that helps you remove/restore unwanted stuff? Is it still necessary to use command prompt?

    Thanks

    If you know how to, you can unzip the rom and remove .apk's. You can also add .apk's. BUT PROCEDE WITH CAUTION!!! You can get bootloops by removing the wrong thing.
