Here's a link to the Blur camera:

Is it possible to increase the number on home screens without installing a launcher?

mikeinrichmond
05-04-2011, 03:50 PM
No you cannot change the number of homescreens with the stock Apex launcher.. But you can with Launcher Pro, ADW, Go Launcher and others...

I am having trouble with the launcherpro Gmail widget... it worked on broodcomb, but did not work on any of the alpha releases and is currently not working on the beta release.

I emailed the dev and got a reply to check the forums. Nothing about this on his forum, since it's a new rom.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Widgetsoid works for this... You have to change the apn toggle to "root toggle".

I flashed it from Liberty. 4 in the following sequence wipe data /wipe cache /wipe dalvik cache / kernel update zip / apex part 1/wipe data /reboot. Went great. I skipped setup reloaded droid 2 bootstrapper from SD card went to clockwork recovery flashed ApeX part 2 and reboot. Boots up, do setup, apps start to install looking good. Go to sdcard to reload bootstrapper, root explorer and titanium and they all failed to work with force closing. Go to settings and they refuse to show up. CAN NOT GET TO THE PHONES SETTINGS! Reboot to stock recovery do several data wipes does not fix problem.

I went back to clockwork recovery and wiped everything again. Reloaded update zip and part 1 and once again everything is perfect. Can get into settings (white background) no problem. Get my bootstrapp app and did one more reboot before flashing part two. Once again everything looks great. It's snappy, apps are restoring furiously But SETTINGS ARE UNAVAILABLE!! I flashed a stock gingerbread nandroid backup. 588 without problems. I made charging up and will update to. 591 using TBH file and try Apex from there. But I'm confused with why part 2 keeps messing things up.

Any ideas. By the way I checked MD5 sum of all my files. But I will definitely Redownload part 2 before retrying.

Edit: figured it out when I visited Fabs post on this forum.The info on not data wiping was not there on his original link from twitter when I downloaded everything.

But anyway, I am on leberty v4 and what are the exact steps to updating to 591 with apex 2.0.0? Do i go into clockwork and install 591 first then the apex part 1 file? Do i wipe data before each install?

I'm likely missing something ridiculously simple, but I'm having trouble running the script to restore some of the blur apps.

I followed the steps that were listed, created a restore folder on my SD card then tried to run the script but it basically tells me that it can't do anything because it's a read only file system.

Any help is very appreciated.

The script for mounting the system is.

sys : r/w

Then run your script

Then

sys : r/o

I think that's what you need to do. It was the only other script he had in his instructions besides restoreblur and Turbo...

unfreeze it, open up the stock app, and go into the settings and turn off the notifications for it, this should help, leave it unfrozen to see what happens then refreeze and see what happens.

A few questions:

1. Has anyone been able to get quickclock oc settings to stick after boot? I've used the typical methods and the oc won't stay even with the boot option enabled.

2. Every single time I boot the phone it goes into clockwork recovery. Why? Is that expected? It didn't do that on my froyo roms unless it was from a battery charge.

3. Can I install the blur alarm?

4. Can I install the latest swype or am I stuck with the light grey skin from moto?

5. When I move my finger to scroll and the scrollable area has moved as far as it goes I see a shadow move across the screen. Assuming its a gb thing since it was present on 588 and 591 stock.

Thanks.

It's very easy to restore ANY number of Blur apps you want. Go grab the 'removedapps-GB' file from the ROM thread. Unzip it on your computer. Grab all the Blur stuff you want back, and put it on your sdcard in a folder called 'restore' (all lower case).

Then, fire up the terminal emulator, type in:

su (enter)
restoreblur(enter)

and read the instructions. It will restore everything in the folder and reboot. All the Blur stuff you put in the folder will now be in /system/app/

It refuses to see my backup's even though they are still on the sd card. Everytime I try to go in and batch restore my apps with data it says there are zero to restore? What could be causing this? I didn't have any other problems with the install.

I also can't get the market to see all of my apps it's only showing the ones that I have purchased excluding Launcherpro Plus for some reason?

The OTA itself will probably be the next platform. The leak race isn't practical unless it's a significant and actual improvement from a prior version. I believe there is plenty of rom creativity fodder with .591

What version of BusyBox do you have?

LPP: did you buy in market or a while ago with the PayPal unlock? If you did PayPal the full version will not show in market as something you bought (limit of the market and google rules). All you have to do is DL the free version, restore a LPP backup and it will apply your code from PayPal. If you don't have a backup, go find the code.

I think I figured out what happened. When I updated to .591 the other day my titanium backup wasn't working because I didn't do the thing were you press problems and it updates your busybox so everything in my titanium backups folder on my sd card were only in the .properties extensions no actually apk zips. So when I flashed to Apex it didn't see any of my backups. So I flashed back to a backup of .591 and updated titanium backup and ran a backup.

I'm gonna flash back to Apex now and hope that it has fixed it. Will let you know in a few.

Does the HDMI out work on Apex 2.0? It was working in the froyo versions and hopefully it works with this one also. I actually use it a couple times a week so I only want to use a rom that has the HDMI out working.

Its an issue with the buildprop in gingerbread that gives the home launcher low priority when it comes to memory so all the third party launchers are slow,sluggish,stop,or just fc alot. The fix is easy. But still have a back up just in case. Using root explorer go to system/build prop and long press it into text editor. Go to the bottom and add this line exactly;

ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1

Then press the hard back key and accept to save the change.
Then reboot system. You should see an inned Improvement. There is a whole thread discussing it titled ADWex redraw or something like that. I have now done it on stock gb, apex and liberty. I can finally appreciate the speed of gingerbread because until I fixed this it was hidden by a leggy launcher.

JNEHAMA,
Fascinating! I've been seeing some redraws in both *Spark UI (home replacement) and Slide-Screen beta. (yes I've been playing with non-adw, launcherpro,go or other conventional launchers). Not too many FC's but definitely some redraws.. Though the draws aren't as evident in Slide-screen which appears to be pretty light and redraws quickly, but I can tell with *Spark which has a kind of "boot up" with their logo screen. I noticed this coming back from a few apps but Pulse especially.. Maybe due to the resources used by the app and Pulse I can imagine is an intense one. I'm emailing instructions to phone now to try when I can get to the phone.

Still jammin' me some ApeX. Alpha-3 just plain rocks. I wish I could decide which Camera I should keep? Shoot I can't even tell which one is which.. One has just the round lens icon, the other a picture of a whole camera. Whatchu guys like? I assume one is the better one in the new build but can't tell which that is. Duh.

Fascinating! I've been seeing some redraws in both *Spark UI (home replacement) and Slide-Screen beta. (yes I've been playing with non-adw, launcherpro,go or other conventional launchers). Not too many FC's but definitely some redraws.. Though the draws aren't as evident in Slide-screen which appears to be pretty light and redraws quickly, but I can tell with *Spark which has a kind of "boot up" with their logo screen. I noticed this coming back from a few apps but Pulse especially.. Maybe due to the resources used by the app and Pulse I can imagine is an intense one. I'm emailing instructions to phone now to try when I can get to the phone.

Still jammin' me some ApeX. Alpha-3 just plain rocks. I wish I could decide which Camera I should keep? Shoot I can't even tell which one is which.. One has just the round lens icon, the other a picture of a whole camera. Whatchu guys like? I assume one is the better one in the new build but can't tell which that is. Duh.

I am sure you will find a huge difference. And just to make you curious the new ADW ex update is a really good one.

I just tried tapping my local Starbucks phone number from the map and it took me directly to my dialer... Not sure why people are having that issue...

Only issue I'm having is Force Close when I open the app to this forum and a few other times.. Any solution as to not get FC?

The solution to the DX forum app is to exit the app when you're done. Generally only fc's when going into an open page and you try to go back to forum.

I am on Apex2.0 but i see that i do not have the ability to group apps. This ability seems to be lacking compared to my stock .573 GB.. Also missing is the ability to have multiple profiles.
But I love the ROM so I was wondering if anybody had any solutions, workarounds pointers etc..,

Also is there a way to go back to .588 from Apex2.0 or is that a sbf to froyo and then upgrade .588?

I use simi folders to create "groups". I think ADW EX launcher also allows groups in the app drawer but I have not tried it. I don't know of any alternative to profiles.

I know you can restore blur apps through the restore script and restoredapps file (link is in Apex2 op). I wonder if the blur launcher is there too. Then you could have Apex plus the launcher you want.

Greetings, I have installed the keyboard zip to try to get back to the stock ginger keyboard. All I got was the swipe version. Is there a way to either go back to the original keyboard from apex, or to the original from gingerbread? Is the original gb kb included in the blur apps zip? The keys were too small for me with the stock kb, and I suck at swiping. Even though I've heard that swipe is the way to go if you can get it down pat.

I just liked the old way. I know you can still type normally on the swipe keyboard, but sometimes its aggravating. Not a big deal.. Just wondering.. Thinking about going back to Liberty for a while.. I do like Apex, don't get me wrong, I know a toolbox is coming, but the customizations in Liberty are insane. I've been pinping rides and stuff since X to the Z was in his diapers so its just a better fit for me. I can't say one is better than the other and don't wanna start a fight, it's all a matter of personal preference as I've seen so many say on here.

Has anyone tried modifying the framework on Apex 2.0? I've been trying to use metamorph to change the notification bar icons, but the only one that will change is the battery. The wifi, signal, and 3g icons stubbornly stay the same. Anyone got a workaround/know what I'm going wrong?

Also the cool old style TV power down effect just disappeared the other day. No more cool lock animation.

The wifi, signal, and 3g are in system/app/systemui.apk. The "fully" ones are the ones that show up after it's connected...

Not sure if you can use metamorph with non-GB icons, since the names would be different, but you can definitely use ninjamorph to swap them out...

The CRT animation is built into the framework, so if you've modified the framework, you may have overwritten it...

These are awesome ROMS, but after trying out the different ones out there I find myself going back to APEX. The battery life does not compare to APEX with all the other ROMS. Just came off of the Liberty v05 and I find myself charging the phone everyday. Its okay developing wise, and has some features, but I really done see the difference that you can't do APEX. Fab did a great job on this.

Are you thinking @the buildprop edit? It was the line
ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 added to the build.prop in system/build.prop . If you want to see if it took correctly go to terminal emulator and after su, enter, type
getprop ro.HOME_APP_ADJ
and enter. If you get the number 1 back it is correct and your problem comes from something else. If it is some other number you can retry the edit with root explorer in build.prop.

You could always rename the existing one. That should work, then you won't have to worry about the overwriting. Also, if you decide you want to go back, you still can. I usually rename three original until I'm sure I'm going to keep the replacement.

I'm pretty new to this scene, but I would guess it's because with ApeX you don't have the Blur junk installed. From looking at the removed apps, I would say SocialShare.apk is probably what the Blur Camera is trying to use to do the share. That's just a guess, I don't have the Blur Camera installed to test that theory. If you want to try installing the SocialShare.apk, you may also need the blur_facebook.apk, blur_flickr.apk, etc installed too. Again this is just speculation, I may test the theory later, so don't crucify me if I'm off base.

I came from the Gingerbread Liberty ROM with this same issue in not giving me any chance to share images or videos, I was getting that message saying there is no apps installed to share. But, when I went to the APEX RC1, it came back. I did researched the above reesponse about in stalling the socialshare.apk, blur_facebook.apk etc.... and none of those apps are installed or running on my phone, which is weird. So I hope that helps and maybe someone can find what is running on this ROM that Liberty is'nt or vice a versa, because its weird how you have that error and I have no share issues with my media, I even have the list pop up in my gallery app. Sorry but I do hope this helps.

So since 2.0 Beta I haven't been able to figure out how to turn off the camera shutter sound. This is if I use AOSP or Blur cameras. I use Vignette as my main camera app and have the sound set to silent in Vignette, but it doesn't matter. If i enable the sound in vignette, it makes a double shutter sound; the one for the system and the one from vignette.

I've seen this questions posted around the net, but no real answer. Not a huge deal, but a minor annoyance that can probably be fixed pretty easily.

Using a root file explorer such as root explorer or super manager, go into system/media/audio/ui and rename camera_click.ogg to camera_click.bak...no more camera sound

I'm not sure if anybody else has had this issue, i did a quick search through the thread, but didn't find anything. I'm having an issue when moving/dragging icons onto my homescreen, either from the app drawer, or from a different location on the homescreen. What happens is if I have a folder, say in the lower right hand corner of one of my homescreens, lets call that homescreen 1, then on another, homescreen 2, I try to move an app into the lower right corner, the app will disappear, as if I deleted it. After the next time I reboot the phone, I will find the app that I attempted to move to the lower right hand corner of homescreen 2, in the folder on homescreen 1. I'm using ApeX 2.0 RC2 now, but noticed it on RC1 as well, both times I didn't notice it until after I installed the REVOlution theme, and some apps. Right now I just wiped data/cache, and reinstalled ApeX RC2, and I can't replicate the issue, I'm going to try restoring all my apps next.

[edit] I still cannot replicate the issue after restoring my apps. I'm going to test for the next couple hours.

[Edit]
OK, now after testing a few of my apps the issue is occurring again. At least now I know it has nothing to do with the theme.

I'm currently on RC2, and have the Blur camera installed via the terminal method. The camera works as expected, but when I press on the thumbnail for the most recent picture, like to go to the gallery, the message "Media Gallery not installed". I have enabled the MediaGallery.apk file via terminal, but that doesn't seem to do anything. Does anybody else know which other files I need to enable? Looking at the photos with the 3D AOSP gallery works fine, but I have to back out of the camera to do that.

Thanks!

Thanks for the great ROM, very smooth experience so far. This is great work.

Three questions:

1. Is there any way I as an end user can replicate the experience of several other ROMs which have ad blocking built in?

2. Is data throttling by Verizon disabled on this ROM?

3. Is there a way I can get a 10% increment battery read in the notification bar? Right now I just have a single green+red bar which is a pretty coarse measure.

Thanks!

I came over from Liberty. If your baseband, kernal, and system version match (system version .596), and your RC2 md5 is: 6fc322740ef9f0ae19ed37716da4ce46

You should feel pretty confident you'll successfully flash RC2 after you wipe data, cache, and Dalvik.

Before flashing, don't forget to make a Nandroid backup so if something does go wrong, you can restore back to Liberty.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean resetting Apex, but check my reply 3 posts up from your original. Make sure the baseband, kernal, system version, and md5 is correct.

If everything is correct, wipe data, cache, and Dalvik, and try reflashing Apex 2.0 RC2.

I'd the above doesn't match, start there first...

Check out this link, you'll be following the Froyo method.

http://www.droid-life.com/2011/05/28/download-official-droidx-gingerbread-4-5-596-for-rooted-users/#more-35005

First, root your phone using z4 root. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=833953

Next, get the Droid2 bootstrapper (market, but apk can be found through searching).

Continue with the 2 part.

This should get you to the correct baseband, kernal, and system version to be able to flash any .596 ROM without worry.

I'm having an issue during install. I'm on .596 after the 2-part GB root. Each time I try to install I get "installation aborted - (bad)". I've re-downloaded the ROM multiple times but no luck. I'm using the Droid2 Bootstrapper. I was running the liberty GB last week with no problem. I SBF'd back to froyo and then ran the 2-parter again just to prep for this rom but can't seem to get it to work when I try to install zip from SD. Any ideas?

Is there something stupid I need to do in advance like - uncheck usb debugging or something?

How do I get all my apps to show up in the market "My Apps" screen? They disappear, I'll try to redownload from the phone or market.android.com and then later randomly it will show those apps as "Free" not "Installed."

Also, I still am having trouble with Gmail not syncing correctly. It gets emails quickly, when they come in. But when I read them, delete, or archive them, they don't tell the server that happened, and it can be hours since I've done something. Auto sync and all that stuff is on, I've reinstalled the app and I still can't figure it out. Help?

I had a question about some of the removed blur apps and how to re-install them. I followed the directions in the official Apex RC 2 thread to use Terminal Emulator to restore the missing apps yet I am still having issues. For example, I use the multimedia dock and want to use the "Desk Home" app each time I connect the Droid to the dock and even though I re-installed "Dock.apk" using the instructions, I still cannot get it to appear when I dock the phone. If I go to App Manager it clearly shows that Desk Home is installed but I still cannot figure out how to actually access it.

Also, just want to extend my sincere thanks for all those who took the time to make this great ROM possible.

Edit: One other question that came up. I would like to try out different ROMS to compare them (namely CM7 and LibGB) and wanted to see the easiest/quickest way to go about switching between them. I did make a Nandroid backup immediately after I upgraded to GB (before ApeX RC2) plus another Nandroid after ApeX RC2 was installed so, assuming I wanted to try another ROM, could I just flash the fresh GB Nandroid then flash the new ROM or would I still need to format/wipe cache etc...?

I screwed up my phone today going from Apex 1.3 to 2.0. I downloaded 2.0 from Rom manager. When installing, black screen with white "Google" came up and never left. I can't turn the phone off. I must do a battery pull to stop. Holding down Power and Home when inserting battery can get into recovery, but that really doesn't help. I tried Factory reset, wipe cache, install update.zip and nothing works. Comes right back to "Google" in white on black screen. Using the USB cord my phone does not show up on my screen or in Disk Utility (I Use a Mac computer). I have a burned disk to get back to 2.2.340, but the computer will not recognize the phone when in that program. Please help I am lost as to where to go at this point. I am pining for my phone to come back to me. Thanks in advance.

You can set personal ringtones... Just click the contact then hit menu then options and you can choose ringtones.

Poll Question:
In your opinion which browser do you think is faster stock on apex apex, dolphin hd 5, or some other?

I think dolphin is fastest but was wondering what you all think?

I have some camera issues. On the RC2 camera, it takes a black (blank) picture. I can record videos fine. I installed the Blur camera and that one does the same thing. The option for 8 mp pictures is not in the Blur camera settings, only widescreen, 5 mp, 3mp etc. I tried repairing permissions. Don't know what else to try right now.

I also just tried the Blur video camera and there is only settings up to DVD at 720x480. The highest should be 720p, right?

BTW, I used the Blur zip files posted here earlier for the camera app. Maybe I need a different one?

I can't restore my gmail so I can add multiple accounts ( because it FCs after flashing apex). I downloaded the .apk for gmail in the one thread, followed the directions but got no results. I have no idea what to do once you open terminal emulator, helps appreciated.

Anyone have Wireless Tether or Barnacle working on RC2? They seem to get hijacked by a built in tether. I don't want to pay VZW an added $30/month when I already pay out the nose for unlimited data.

Can't you just install blue dialer and contacts, which will allow to personalize your ringtones?

Doing this will give you the blur and the aosp version at the same time since your not removing the aosp version. That happened to me with the camera and the gallery. I don't want that to happen with the contacts and dialer. Does someone know a way around this? Is this something that Fab could fix?

I don't have duplicate contacts. Nothing I tried worked so I went back to stock. Tried another rom and had to go back to froyo for now. I can't use this rom if the contact ringtones don't work. Actually that goes for all roms. It's the one thing that has to work for me.

Hey guys! Alright, I'm loving the apex 2.0 rom. So fast, so smooth. The only real prob I'm having so far is when I went to *228 & use opt 2, I couldn't get a dial pad up to press the number @ all! I also can't find any options in the settings menu neither. Is anyone else having this problem, & if so can u please let me know.

Thanks

Thanx for the reply, I did get the keyboard, but not the dial pad. My phone went ahead and updated, but I'm worried that this could lead to bigger issues if I am unable to press a number for a option.

Does n e one have a fix??

Is apextoolbox not in RC2 yet?

Only got 5 desktops. Want my 7 desktops back. Don't see the setting for that where it use to be? Has it moved or been removed?

Also on the desktop when I tilt the screen doesn't auto rotate? Only when I am in apps??

Also get a FC on "android.process.media" ALL the time. can't download from market, music player crashes alone with a few other programs that keep crashing. I did do a restore from Titan Backup started to do it after that so don't know if that has a reason for it happening. Was on Froyo with Apex 1.4.1

On the verge of going back to Froyo with Apex 1.4.1 till an offical 2.0 comes out.

7 desktops youll need to use adw ex or launcher pro plus ( i think the stock android launcher -launcher2- only uses 5)

I'm not sure about the rotate check your display settings (settings/display)

android.process.media go to settings/applications/media storage and clear cache if that doesnt fix it take your sd card and move everything to you computer and then format your sd card place everything back on and that should fix it.. there is a bad directory/file there or something is restored from the sd card and causing a malfunciton

Thanks for the info. I will have to keep that in mind. In the process of going back to Froyo and Apex 1.4.1. I think i'll wait till a non Beta/RC version comes out and check it out then. Still like certain blur things that seem like it will be too much of a pain to get back in it at this time. Not super hardcore at this but more advanced by far from other people i know with Droids. Just been having nothing but issues with Apex 2.0 RC2.

I absolutely love this rom!! My only concern is that I'm actually getting pretty horrible battery life, which is surprising. I've underclocked & undervolted to see if that helped & no dice. Also calibrated battery, the very first thing I did.

N e one who is getting great batt life, let me know what ur found if its n e thing special.

I'm still having issues getting the Motorola Multimedia Dock App to work properly, even after installing dock.apk and dockservices.apk according to the detailed instructions on this forum. I posted this question at another forum as well but others ran into the same issue so I wanted to see if anyone else here had some alternative ideas on how to possibly get it to work correctly. Thanks, as always.

I have a D2 (not global), that I've upgrade to Apex 2.0RC2 and I'm having problems in particular with the Marketplace not working, and android.process.media FC'ing all over the place, it does do it more than just on Marketplace. I tried the suggestion of formatting the sdcard and copying stuff back, that didn't solve the problem, nor did clearing cache or trying to change permissions. Frankly, I'm tempted to just roll back to 1.4.1 at this point.

Hi all,

I am running Apex for it's stock GB appearance and performance. One this bugs me though, and it is how the lockscreen uses Droid Sans font for the clock text in portrait ONLY. When I see the lockscreen briefly in landscape when I put it in my dock, the landscape clock is Clockopia, the stock Google clock font. I would like Clockopia to be the font for portrait as well. It must be a setting somewhere in an .xml file or something, because the font is there, it's just not using it.

Thanks!

Have you tried uninstalling Droid 2 bootstrapper and reinstalling it? Otherwise there is a hack that I found on my Droid 2 Global that got rid of Clockwork mod recovery. It involved deleting and renaming some files in Root Explorer.

I don't believe I have any bootstrappers on my dx. It came with Apex 2.0 when I bought it. I'm using Titanium Backup and don't see anything in the list. Also, as someone asked me in a few replies earlier, it doesn't matter if I am plugged in or using battery, same result.

What it does is I shut down my phone, power back on and it reboots into CWM recovery. Then in the menu I can select reboot system and then it will boot up fine. It just seems like it takes forever to reboot since it has to go through the boot logo twice. Just wondering if there is a way to fix it.

I would download the Droid 2 Bootstrapper and install it. Click on the bootstrap recovery option and then reboot. Then reboot from within clockworkmod recovery as you have been.

I found once before that when I had clockworkmod recovery installed, but not the bootstrapper app installed, it booted into recovery every time. Once i reinstalled and ran the bootstrapper, it quit and behaved normally.

Not an expert though, it just worked for me before.

Thanks for the advice. I installed the Droid 2 Bootstrapper and did the bootstrap recovery. Rebooted and it didn't go to clockword mod recovery that time. Rebooted again and it goes into clockwork mod recovery again. Seems to only work for one reboot. Any other ideas?

Also, this may be a silly question, but what does the bootstrapper actually do?
