Howdy all!

I present to you, a deodexed/de-bing'd and de-crapified shipping ROM.
This ROM is still 2.2.2, and is based off the stock LG ROM (so it still contains LG's colorization and notification bar mods).

Changes from Stock ROM:
  • Included ADW Launcher as default launcher
  • Removed Bing - long press search button = Google Voice search (included)
  • Set Google as default quick press search button
  • Removed Bing from Browser.apk (typing in URL bar goes to Google now)
  • Added Gingerbread keyboard (and removed LG keyboard)
  • Renamed LGHome, removed weather widget (only worked on LGHome anyway)
  • Removed CityID
  • Removed a few other junk apks in /system/app (Netflix, FriendsWidget, Photowidget, userGuide, Weather Widget)
  • Deodexed /system/framework and /system/app
  • Removed the setup help videos, saving 100mb in /system

This rom is pre-rooted!
Upcoming changes:
  • Remove LG's dumb lockscreen (swiping up sucks.)
  • Include a flashlight widget

Want me to add something? Post it here!
Pictures!


Installation Instructions
  1. Download the .zip
  2. Extract the .zip to your external SD card in /clockworkmod/backup/
    This should give you "/clockworkmod/backup/revo_decrap-1.0"
  3. Boot to Clockwork, select "Backups/Restore", then "Advanced Restore". Select "revo_decrap-1.0", then select "System".
  4. Once the restore finishes, select "Advanced" then "Wipe Dalvik Cache"
  5. Reboot, and enjoy your new ROM!

If you get a lot of force closes, you may need to wipe /data.

Press and hold the search button, and it should ask you what app you want to use to handle that intent.

Special thanks goes to Majorpay for giving me the location of the last remnant of Bing (android.policy.jar). Without that hint, I'd still be searching!

Yep! Donation funds partially paid for a Revo!

And as a side note, this ROM is going places-- fast! I'm going to be nuking a LOT more of LG's junk out of this phone tomorrow.
Hopefully, I should be able to replace the framework-res and framework with their Cyanogenmod 6.1.2 equivalents, which will allow us to use Cyanogenmod 6.1.2 apps (like stock browser, etc).

Also! This forum doesn't seem to send me emails properly, so if I don't respond for long periods of time, don't assume I'm gone
Hit me up on IRC, I'm pretty much always on.

Strong wirk cubes. My only suggestion is to leave the keyboard completely stock as now it doesnt do auto correct and to have an option to use the lg launcher

Love this cleaner ROM AND ADW and Google search by default! One thing thats broken is videos on Facebook and a couple other apps. Oddly enough, youtube videos work just fine.

Again, like someone else mentioned before the spelling autocomplete only seems to work for proper names and not anything else which makes typing on the phone very difficult.

People having issues with the keyboard, just download and install the gingerbread key lard from the Market. Fixes issues.

No it's not-- thanks for letting me know-- looks like my post got shuffled into the wrong subforum when the new RootzWiki theme was made.
