    I'm looking for a ROM similar to what Virtuous used to be on the original Incredible:

    * based on OTA ROM (not required, but it's the simplest option)
    * strips out the bloatware/spyware (e.g. Carrier IQ, City ID, anything named VZ* or HTC*)
    * adds useful goodies instead (e.g. WiFi Hotspot, file manager, maybe an improved kernel)
    * doesn't require wiping for updates (i.e. "it just works")

    Suggestions?

    Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, two problems:

    1: I did indeed install VirtuousROM. And now I regret it. Virtuous Unity & Affinity are very different (in bad ways) from the old Virtuous for original Incredible. Also, the entire Virtuous forums site has been down for a month.

    2: I'm looking for something very close to stock. At a minimum, that means Sense-based, so CM = thanks but no thanks.

    I will probably switch to Jermaine's Stock Plus.

    Go with andybones stock. It is the Inc 2 ota push from dec. Use titanium backup to remove what ever is there you don't want and if you search on Google for wifi tether you can use 3.1 beta 8. And you'll be good to go. If you want to try something more try RunnyMik it has sense 3.5 and 2.3.7 Android. It's extremely slick and clean.
