[Guide] - Updated 7/22: 3VO Clean Up - Remove *ALL* bloatware and Adblocking! V2.0

Updated: 7/22/2011 - I updated the script to include the removal of more bloatware. As well I coupled it with the updated root scripts. I also added Ad-Blocking host file to the root script.

Free RAM comparison
Fresh boot of a completely stock ROM: 371 Megabytes free
Fresh boot of a Cleaned stock ROM using this script: 441 Megabytes Free (save 70 megs running the script!)




Ok, I wrote a quick bat file to scrub some of the crapware from the device. It doesnt actually remove the programs, thats simply not possible yet but does remove the entries in the app draw making for an almost Custom ROM appearance ;c)

This will remove the following junk from the app drawer:

Amazo MP3
HTC Appsharing
Blockbuster
Android Debugtool
Ereader
Greenhornet
Nascar
Picasa
Spiderman
HTC Mobile Guide
Sprint TV
Sprint Wallet
Sprint Nav
Sprint Radio
------------------
The following files are now disabled in ver 2.0
HTC Likes
Media Share
Polaris office
Qik Video
Watch
HTC Look up
HTC Transfer
Dock Mode
Car Panel

These Items will NOT reappear on a reboot of device. This is a reversable change if you choose to, see post 2.

Prerequisites:
You need to have HTC Sync Drivers installed The drviers can be found here: http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/attachment...22_release.zip
You need to be temp rooted (Dont worry if your not, I have the root-er included in the download!!)
You need to have USB cable connected with USB Debugging on.

Step 1 - Download the attached Clean My 3VO 2.0 ZIP file and extract it to desktop (or wherever)

Step 2 - Run "Run_ME_Fr3vo_ROOT.bat" file. This will give you the temp root you need. Remember this is temp root. It will go bye-bye after reboot of device.

Step 3 - Run "Clean My 3VO 2.0.bat" file. This will clean the menu items noted above and then reboot the phone. These will not return on reboot of device ;c)

Step 4 (Optional)- Re-run the "Run_ME_Fr3vo_ROOT.bat" after the phone reboots and it will re-root phone and apply an ad-blocking hosts file ;c)

Thanks goes to agrabren of #TeamWin for the temp root
Thanks goes to eugene373 of XDA for the fre3vo.bat file for easy temp root

Re: [Guide] - 3VO Clean Up - Remove *ALL* the bloatware!

very nice!

and if you want to modify the .bat file, simply edit it, I like using Notepad++. remove the lines of code for the apps u wanna keep.

Code:
adb shell pm disable com.amazon.mp3
adb shell pm disable com.htc.appsharing
adb shell pm disable com.blockbuster.app.htc
adb shell pm disable com.android.debugtool
adb shell pm disable com.htc.ereader
adb shell pm disable com.htc.watchshortcut
adb shell pm disable com.htc.loggers
adb shell pm disable com.handson.h2o.nascar09
adb shell pm disable com.htc.reportagent
adb shell pm disable com.htc.picasa
adb shell pm disable com.gameloft.microwidget
adb shell pm disable com.SIE.HTCMobileGuide
adb shell pm disable com.gameloft.android.SPRINT.GloftSMHP.ML
adb shell pm disable com.mobitv.client.sprinttvng
adb shell pm disable com.sprint.dsa
adb shell pm disable com.telenav.app.android.sprint
adb shell pm disable com.mspot.android.music.mspotradiosprint
adb shell pm disable com.sprint.smps

not to steal your thunder scrosler, but here is the code to enable apps, simple change disable to enable

Code:
@echo off
adb shell pm enable com.amazon.mp3
adb shell pm enable com.htc.appsharing
adb shell pm enable com.blockbuster.app.htc
adb shell pm enable com.android.debugtool
adb shell pm enable com.htc.ereader
adb shell pm enable com.htc.watchshortcut
adb shell pm enable com.htc.loggers
adb shell pm enable com.handson.h2o.nascar09
adb shell pm enable com.htc.reportagent
adb shell pm enable com.htc.picasa
adb shell pm enable com.gameloft.microwidget
adb shell pm enable com.SIE.HTCMobileGuide
adb shell pm enable com.gameloft.android.SPRINT.GloftSMHP.ML
adb shell pm enable com.mobitv.client.sprinttvng
adb shell pm enable com.sprint.dsa
adb shell pm enable com.telenav.app.android.sprint
adb shell pm enable com.mspot.android.music.mspotradiosprint
adb shell pm enable com.sprint.smps

Awesome work. I'm personally going to wait for full perm root to do anything. Hopefully in a couple days we will have the fre3dom to remove all the crappy for good.

Re: [Guide] - 3VO Clean Up - Remove *ALL* the bloatware!

Thanks scrosler! That's awsome!

To be honest though, the crapware doesn't bother me as much as it does some people. Besides, when ppl are standing next to me and I'm flippin' through my apps, all that crapware makes it look as if I have a lotta stuff and they are like "WOW", "look at all those apps!!"
