I am new to the whole custom fw/rom.
Although I wouldn't consider myself dumb when it comes to using and flashing, but I cant seem to figure this part out.

I have the Warp Sequent, and atm I am using this rom and it works great. I like the idea of it being stripped down the way it is.
Since I am using this as a media player/web browser, is there anyway to strip it any more?
Taking out any phone functions and unnecessary carrier info would be awesome, along with anything else that is not essential for what I am using it for, so its just a bare min to run apps and web browsing.

If not does anyone know of a rom that would provide this?

You can grab a root file browser such as es file explorer, enable r/w access on /system, navigate to /system/app, and delete *.apk files. You could also rename them instead of delete them. That way if you break something you can rename it back. Make a cwm backup before you start. Good luck.
