Hi guys!

This is a placeholder for my debut into the Android ROM cooking world. If you've owned a Sprint Touch Pro2 and are familiar with my Bare Naked ROM series, then this is no different. I'm stripping as much away as I can, while still maintaining a functioning ROM.

ROM information:
Android Gingerbread 2.3.4
HTC Software 2.08.651.2
Rosie/HTC Launcher Removed
Sense Widgets Removed
Bloat Removed
Launcher Pro is the default launcher

Flashlight app included
Ringtones/notifications/alarms galore
DSP Manager included
Stock Sprint Hotspot Removed temporarily. PATCH IS BELOW.
Visual Voicemail Removed
AOSP Clock included
Other stuff I can't remember
Dalvik-VM set to 48MB
WiFi Scanning set to 180
HTC Software update server Removed
AOSP lock scren with a cool feature!
Most frequently updated Google apps have been removed. (since you can get them from the market)
Busybox 1.19
Bash 4.1
Random scripts...

I've removed as much Sense as possible, BUT there is always room for improvement. I'm constantly discovering random apps that can be removed and plan to either update with patches to do so, or just post back with my findings.

This ROM is very much stock, in that there are no modifications applied to the framework, but I'm sure that any current mods will work just fine. In fact, I plan on keeping up with them in the form of flashable zips instead of whole new versions.

Thanks (in no particular order):
-Team Win, AlphaRev X, Unrevoked, CyanogenMod team, toastcfh, Shinzul, TrevE, netarchy, dsixda, zeppelinrox, ch33kybutt, Death-M0nk, cayniarb, flipzmode, LiquidSolstice, Mikedick, wildcatswr5, SteelH, kushdeck, Ihtfp69, Team Bamf, JoelZ9614, hockeyfamily737, Virus, J.eremy, frosty_ice, Vinchenzop, YACO, the entire XDA community especially the modders, themers, and the helpful members. If I forgot you, or you would like to be included in the thanks list just because, shoot me a PM.

To do:
-Rearrange or just plain remove homescreen icons on first boot
-Probably more, I forgot.

Known Issues:
-With Sense lockscreen removed, you are unable to answer calls until you unlock the screen. Your phone rings, but you don't see who's calling until you unlock. Prevents accidental dials. Kind of neat for privacy buffs.
-It appears as though 3D homescreen settings only works with Rosie/HTC Sense Launcher. :(

Service Pack 1: Must be installed on top of 2.1. It is not a standalone ROM.
NOTES: Do not install if you have the Gingerbread Pack installed, as it will overwrite the pack with stock look. If you have any other themes installed, it's a good idea to either look over the changes to know if you want to install this, or extract the files from the ZIP that you don't wish to install. I will be creating SP1 with Gingerbread Pack as well just give me some time. SP1 must be installed on top of 2.1, it is not a standalone ROM.
-Removes shutter sound from Camera app. Bonus features: HDR/Panorama
-Removes MMS compression. Bonus features: Secure box/Backup option
-Fixes double GPS icon.
-Improves app_server and system_server aka device responsiveness. (Thanks nikademus!)
-Improves boot/shutdown time by removing delays.
-Lowers minimum frequency 192MHz on both cores to save battery.
-CIQ cleanup patch.
-Removes SIP over WiFi only.
-Updated build.prop to reflect SP1.
-Updated kernel with minor ramdisk tweaks and CIQ cleanup.

Well, I mean you can see who's calling you, if you slide to unlock. I've actually grown quite fond of this unexpected feature. If combined with a pin or pattern unlock, it ensures that only I can answer my own phone. Awesome huh? lol :)

It's because of the HTC framework that's still in the ROM no matter how much HTC related software you remove. CyanogenMod will not have this issue since built from AOSP.
