I plan to remove the apps I dont need and add those I use to the ROM. The ROM size unzipped is about 142 Meg, is this the maximum size ?

and just to check I am doing the right thing ...

An example is google maps which comes as version 4 in the Modaco Rom, so I download version 5 and back it up with Titanium backup.
This produces a file called com.google.android.apps.maps-(+binary stuff).apk.

So I rename this maps.apk and replace the original one in the ROM ?

thanks .. Mike

should anyone be interested, this all worked. I now have all my apps and widgets in Rom, and 114 meg free of internal storage

Just for a little further info on this, you can pull your apps directly from /data/app with adb.
Also if you type...

adb shell

then

df

...you'll get a list of how full each partition is.

thanks, that is easier, particularly pulling the whole folder
