Alright. I have googled this and it is just way over my head. Is there a quick and easy explanation as to what this is? And should I do it.

I recently came to the x from a D1. It was rooted with custom rom and themes etc but I never ran into this odex deodex thing.

My x is rooted.

Thanks for the help and I will be standing by for further instructions

My understanding is that if you want custom roms and themes you have to deodex...

only certain roms require you to be deodexed

its just packing the odex files into the apks
