Lite version idea
« on: February 18, 2011, 04:52:22 AM »
I know this is kinda of a lame idea, but maybe you could make the lite version with nothing installed, and just have people intall stuff from the repo?   Cuz I wanted a lite version just for multitasking, so I deleted the folders, installed backgrounder and curcuitios (as well as thier dependancies), and I now can run 12 apps and only then be below 30mb free mem.   I was thinking this would be good to cover all bases for a lite version.   I idle around 75 mb after I free mem when I'm done multitasking.   So, maybe put the modded curcuitios in the repo for people who want a free memory tool and stuff as an example of what to put.


I don't know, I'm thinking this would be good for people who only want one or two things and such, and for that to work really well.   (backgrounds, folders, multitasking, activator, etc)

I think Lite is fine with folders, it's easy to uninstall. Adding the circuitous would be nice

I know,  I'm just saying for those who only want to use it for one purpose, they could chose what that is.

Side question.   Is this post under the announcments?   It is for me on the mobile forum...

it's a good idea. will make everything a lot easier for the new people. but if we did this, we would need to work on repo A LOT more.
also, if this was done, people would get instant cydia updates for add-ons  :twisted:

But then on the other side of this thought, there are those who would just want it ready, but then again, what is the ready they want?

Even with my god powers on accidentally putting this post in the announcements, no one seems to be voting much  :|

I like Lite packaged just the way it is.  We can't have a "blank" Whited00r because then we are moving away from what Whited00r is, that is a iOS3 clone of iOS4 for the older devices.
