Remove the Google-Specific Files with NoAnalytics Remix, a Modification of the Freecygn Project

Some time ago, we talked about the freecygn project, which was created to remove the remaining traces of Google from CyanogenMod. This project brought quite a bit of controversy, as Google not only is most responsible for Android, but also collects data and gathers statistics for various advertising-related purposes.

XDA Senior Member MaR-V-iN‘s freecygn project was quite successful, and Senior Member sylentprofet decided to make a modification of it that allows it to compile alongside CyanogenMod itself. Sylentprofet compiled the Java Archive file in the Android Studio and wrote short instructions on how to make the necessary modifications to get a Google-free system straight from source.

It’s no longer necessary to run a script through ADB to remove Google’s files, as you can now compile this and flash in one go. Of course, all credit should go to MaR-V-iN for his original modification, but once again we can see how keeping things open source brings good things to the community.

Sylentpro’s remix can be found in its original thread. Don’t forgt to also¬†visit MaR-V-iN’s thread¬†too, so that you can keep track of the project’s latest updates.
