Alright, I know theres a lot of threads about deodexing and black status bars, but I have a few things still need clearing up.
First of all I'm already rooted and I want the black status bar, so I need to deodex my phone, right? but before doing that I should make a backup of my phone using Droid X recovery boostrap, right? Then I can just go into rom manager and install the black status bar, right? :confused:

Oh, and by the way I'm referring to this guide http://www.mwd.com/2010/09/droid-x-credited-with-easy-deodexodex-by-928-droid/

928 has a deodexer update/theme you can apply using the bootstrap which will deodex it for you.

check out rooolers guide on more on the whole process

Cool thanks, it's all working. By the way, ill lose my black status bar when I upgrade to gingerbread if it ever comes out, right?

Probably. We'll have to wait and see with the OTA update.

Thanks for the answers. Just one last Question: will I still be deodexed if for what ever reason I restore from my original backup in Droid x recovery Bootstrap?

That all depends if you were deodexed already when you made the backup.
I suggest making anotther backup now and naming it deodexed if you havent made a backup since deodexing

Well, the deodexer I used themed me too. I don't wanna change the theme but id like to have a non themed, deodexed backup. Is that possible?

You would have to deodex manually, which is a little more involved than installing a zip file. There's a thread under the hacking subforum or it might be the theme subforum.

Oh, alright. There's no way to remove the theme and keep the deodex?

Actually, (light bulb) 928droid also has a theme removal on his original post. And I believe this will remove the theme but keep you deodexed.
