    [ROM] ApeX V2.0.0 Release Candidate (RC1) (6/6/2011)

    ApeX 2.0 for Droid X Gingerbread (.596 OTA) has finally reached the Release Candidate landmark! While this new build is completely blurless and 100% AOSP unlike previous versions, the same philosophy remains. Build a fast, clean, reliable ROM that is enjoyable to use, and customizeable.


    Requirements
    • You must be on .596 rooted or a .596 based ROM
    • Kernel must be 2.6.32.9-g34b306d
      qgd748@il93lnxdroid09 #1
    • Baseband must be BP_C_01.09.12P



    Disclaimer
    Code:
    As always, you must take responsibility for what you do to your own phone. 
    I have created this ROM and tested it to the best of my ability. 
    The instructions are written to make sure that users have success installing and using the ROM. 
    However, if anything goes wrong and your phone is damaged or rendered useless, I do not take any responsibility.

    Additional Credits
    I would like to especially thank kejar31 for teaching me his secret sauce technique for compiling AOSP apps for the Blur Framework. I'd like to thank jrummy16 and drod2169 for helping me on Gtalk and troubleshooting some issues, and _Mycahya_ and Mobile_Sensei for helping me fix some of the theming! Also, I'd like to thank Dr. Carpenter for making the new boot logo.


    Of course, credits to P3Droid, Team Black Hat, MyDroidWorld for the Gingerbread leaks, the CyanogenMod team for many of the apps, Google for many more apps, Motorola, and all the nice brave people on Twitter for testing this for me, helping me squash bugs, and submitting beautiful wallpapers!


    If I left anyone out, please let me know so I can properly credit you!


    Changelog in RC2
    • Completely Blurless! Pure Google Experience.
    • Cleaned up framework with help from Mobile_Sensei
    • CM7 style battery icons - percentages, 10% increments
    • Original AOSP 2.3.3 animations and transitions (slightly faster)
    • Additional ringtones and notifications from CM7
    • Fixed white background when setting a Pattern or PIN/Password lockscreen
    • Battery usage can now be accessed from Settings->About Phone
    • Google Car Home is now included
    • Updated Superuser and su binary to latest versions (thanks ChainsDD!)
    • Tweaked Apex blurbs ;-)
    • New Boot Logo (Google)



    Features


    • Android 2.3.3 based on the Gingerbread OTA (4.5.596)
    • All apps replaced with AOSP/CM7 counterparts (compiled from source for DX, by me)
    • Stock Gingerbread Theme
    • Bloat and Market apps removed
    • Facebook for Android App syncs w/ Contacts!
    • DSP Manager (visual equalizer) for headphones, phone speaker, and BT
    • MusicMod with gesture controls
    • Dev Tools, Spare Parts, Terminal Emulator for fun tweakin'
    • ApeX wallpaper gallery with user submitted wallpapers!
    • Quadrant "Turbo" Mode for mad scores
    • Witty Protips (ApeX Blurbs)



    Screenshots












    Scripts
    1. poweroverwhelming : activate Quadrant "turbo" mode
    2. sys : mount system r/w and r/o



    Things to know
    • Market apps are removed (Gmail, Maps, Voice Search, etc). Remember to re-enable Gmail sync in your account settings after downloading it.
    • There is no "double lock" mechanism. If you set a pattern or PIN unlock, it's a good idea to lower timeout to 0
    • Sync Facebook contacts using the official app
    • If you need to activate your phone, hold down the menu button at the activation screen to bring up the keyboard.



    BUGS
    • Changing volume during a BT phone call causes a closeout and BT to stop working until a reboot. Please don't change the volume during a BT phone call for now. I am looking into the solution.



    Installation Instructions
    1. Meet all the requirements listed at the top of the post
    2. Wipe data/cache, dalvik cache (only wipe cache and dalvik if coming from RC1)
    3. Flash Apex

    Restoring Removed Apps

    I have made some flashable .zip files for common Blur apps that people want to restore. Check the following link first to see if I made one for the app you want. If not, then follow the steps below to manually restore Blur. Flashable .zip files here.

    1. Game plan -- figure out which .apks you need to restore to get the functionality you want. I won't be providing much support in this regard.
    2. Download the removed apps archive here. This is NOT a flashable .zip file.
    3. Extract the removed apps archive and cherry pick the .apks you wish to restore. Copy them onto your sdcard.
    4. Run the following commands in Terminal Emulator to restore apps:
    Code:
    su
    sys -rw
    cp /sdcard/APKNAME.apk /system/app
    chmod 755 /system/app/APKNAME.apk
    5. Repeat the bottom two lines for all remaining .apks to restore

    Great job, Fab.

    Do you have any idea why my LauncherPro Plus gmail widget won't work? It worked on .596 leak... I have tried clearing data and cache on LPP as well as uninstalling and reinstalling. Ideas?
    Don't know what we are talking about? Check the Android Dictionary
    Think you know what to do? Look at THIS first.
    Root .602 & .605 info here.
    Need to SBF? Try this.

    The 12p radio was part of the 588 leak if I'm not mistaken. you could downgrade to 573 and then flash 588 then back to 596 with an updated radio.
