Just the Basics Brings the Apps a Flasher Needs

XDA has always been, and will always be, a place for development. However, there are a lot of people who come to XDA to find and flash custom ROMs. In fact, a lot of newer developers attribute their joy of flashing ROMs as their primary motivation for getting into development. As long as there are developers, there will be users that want to play with it. For HTC EVO 4G owners, there is now a mod that makes the flashing process a little more fun.

The mod is called Just the Basics. It is a small package of popular and often used applications that flashers can quickly add to their ROM installations. Basically, you download the AROMA-enabled zip and flash in recovery after the ROM. From there you can choose what applications you want installed, reboot, and not have to use a backup app or the Play Store to download them again.

The list is pretty limited right now, and includes:

browsers: firefox and dolphin
original apps: the goodies
games: everyones favorite HTC game………TEETER!

XDA Senior Member lreyes says that there will be updates and additions as time goes. After a few decent updates, this could definitely be a go-to mod for frequent flashers who want as many of their applications installed as possible before the first boot.

To learn more, head to the original thread.
