BareBones App and Sense Removal Script for EVO4G

Magnificent as the EVO 4G is, the Android device does come installed with what some owners may deem bloatware, as well as HTC Sense and other widgets.

If you’d like to run a barebones version ROM it is possible to remove Sense and any ‘excess’ apps that you are not likely to use.  However, it can be time consuming to go through all the steps required manually – especially if you are constantly flashing new ROMs.

XDA forum member omegasun18 has written a script in order to speed up the process and has uploaded the tool for other members to use.  The script will remove Sense and all HTC apps plus lockscreen as well as all peer networking and Sprint applications bar navigation, VVM and promotion.  Additionally the script removes other apps that have been confirmed in the forums to be removable without causing stability issues.

The XDA member has stated that if there is demand for a version that does not remove HTC Sense, then the will make such a version.

For more information and to download the mod, visit the forum thread.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...
