You don't have to be an advanced user to install the ROM. You just need to carefully read the threads in this forum for installing ROMs.
Hey, i'm currently using this ROM trimmed to 128 MB partition. Here is what I did:
But before you try to trim the ROM, I think it would be safer to install another launcher and keyboard and choose them as default. Then do a nandroid backup and install the trimmed version. After that, if the phone is stable and the system fits into less than 128 MB, do another nandroid backup, do the TPT and restore the last nandroid backup.
This is not a good advice at all. It is quite stupid to TPT only for this, with making backups, etc. If you have larger partition, you don't need to do this - just use it. If you have smaller - you will have to do TPT twice, which is insane - just TPT to 160 and use it that way.
Also you have removed some apps, that souldn't be removed (LiveWallpapersPicker.apk, ThemeChooser.apk, etc.) - you lose core functionality. Removing launcher and LatinIME is not a good idea at all (even with backups, etc). This whole trimming thing is for advanced users only, if you don't know what you are doing, you shouldn't try.
KonstaT made the ROM this way with purpose.
I don't know exactly what you will need and what will work on your phone with your apps (trimming to 140 is easier, but 128...). If you need more space just use S2E or Link2SD with ext partition on SD card
- you will save hundreds of megabytes, not just 30.
I already gave you some advice, if you need to experiment. I think there was a Windows program to trim LatinIME too (removing languages from it) which will make things easier, but it is also for advanced users.
