    Well, not sure if this was already somewhere else, but I looked and couldn't find it, so I'm gonna ask here...

    What are the required APKs to maintain running the Android OS? I have root access on my Eris, and was tinkering around with a bit with removing some of the preinstalled APKs such as YouTube and stuff like that, just wondering how much I can delete and work to create my own system to a certain extent. Anyone that can let me know what I need would be nice. Thanks.

    I know for a fact that Google Talk is required for the Market to work.

    Also remember reading somewhere that the default Messaging app is required to receive SMS/MMS.

    Alright, so Google Talk and default messaging so far. Any idea on what HTC stuff I can get rid of? And randomly on that thought, I at one point had the HTC Legend custom rom installed, minimal HTC stuff, what are the odds I can install a Moto rom or something comparable that wouldn't have HTC Sense on it?
