ApeX 2.0 for Droid X Gingerbread (.605 OTA) has finally reached the Release Candidate landmark! As always, the goals of the ROM are speed, stability, reliability, and simplicity of use. I feel that this version lives up to those goals admirably! Take it for a test yourself and see if you agree!




Requirements

You must be on .602/.605 rooted or a .602/.605 based ROM
Kernel must be 2.6.32.9-g34b306d
tkwp86@ca25rhe81 #2
Baseband must be BP_C_01.09.13P



If you're on a .340 based ROM, read instructions below on how to use AIO to jump straight to ApeX



Disclaimer

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.

If you need to activate your phone, hold down the menu button at the activation screen to bring up the keyboard.


BUGS

Cannot add dialer or contacts to hotseat in new Launcher 2. Keep dialer in the default position for now, sorry!

For .340 (Froyo) users, download the Apex AIO file below. In recovery, format system, data, and cache. Then MOUNT SYSTEM, and install Apex AIO. You will be on .602 with new kernel, baseband, and of course, Apex. FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS WILL RESULT IN BRICK REQUIRING SBF.

Market Fix (no longer necessary after RC4) - For 'an error has occured' when purchasing apps


Dark Market 3.1.3 (http://bit.ly/qHKwkV) -- by B-boy


Flash this in recovery.


Standalone Super Launcher 2 from Apex 2.0 RC3


http://bit.ly/rcaqxv -- install as you would any apk


Installable Blur Applications


Instructions - These apps are installable like any non-market application. This means you need to go into Settings, Applications, and make sure 'Unknown sources' is checked.


Download the desired file(s) to your sdcard, then use the file manager to click and install it. Some apps require additional steps, which will be detailed below.


Installable Blur Applications for Apex 2.0 (http://bit.ly/mPQRGV)







Additional Steps for Keyboards (Multitouch, Swype)


-After installing either/both of these keyboards, go into Settings, Language & keyboard, and enable the downloaded keyboard(s). Then, tap and hold a text entry field, and select 'Input method' and select desired keyboard.


Additional Steps for Blur Home


-Blur Home will not work without removing Launcher2. Pay attention to these steps as failure to follow them can result in a missing launcher. After installing the Blur Home apk, fire up the Terminal Emulator and type the following:



su
sys -rw
mv /system/app/Launcher2.apk /system/app/Launcher2.bak



Hit home, wait a few seconds, and the Blur launcher will come up.

I have been downloading them over wifi installing, then restoring data through TB, but I purchased ADW after install, so it wasn't even a TB restore.

Is it possible its something on the Market Place end? or Even with ADW source itself? I can download previous purchases and free apps, and I received a confirmation from google checkout...


@Jromash..Might be the market ..I've had that happen before on purchased app..

Question...I've been Flashing from Miui to SSX Cuz ...I like too and give me Variety...

Seeing that Miui & SSX are 2 init Driven...Is it possible to Flash Apex without SBFing...?

I know the 2 init changes the Rules from Flashing from one ROM like Apex to another...

Thoughts...

Bubba,

If you're on .340 (Froyo) kernel based 2nd init ROM, I will have an AIO file uploaded shortly that will get you to ApeX in one step.


Random protip: hold down the app launcher button in Launcher2 to get a 'card view' preview of all 5 home screens.

Well Hello Thar Fabolous...

That's Awesome...If you were Female... I'd have your Kids...

I've spent most of my ROMing Days on Apex and really Loved it ...I happen to think this ROM is Awesome ...
I Kinda Missed it...thats why I was asking for an easier way back to Point Of Origin I guess...Call it my Roots with this Forum...

Currently on SSX and quite sure Miui is the same with the A-Version 2.3.5...The Kernel I'm sure is different...that V is ...2.6.32.9.g55626e1...What ever the Hell that means...More numbers if you want them...

Question...Launcher2 App...do i need to D-load this App for Preview...

Bubba's not to Smart with Tech stuff...so dont go to far from the the Earth so I understand...LOL...;)


Looking forward to getting back to my Roots...

Thank you very much for Responding to my Post...

The AIO file is up in the OP. Please read the directions carefully or you will have to SBF.

The AIO only works if you're on a .340 based ROM (i.e. Apex 1.4.1 and older, or some 2nd init ROMS that have not moved to the GB kernel yet, MIUI for example I think).

correct. The AIO updates not only the ROM, but everything else too, moving a phone from Froyo to Gingerbread

If the ROM installed fine and you verify that you are on the correct kernel and radio, I would just try booting into recovery and performing another factory reset.

Hey everyone, awesome forum you guys have going here! Everything I know about rooting, or my DX in general I have learned from the threads here, which is impressive because I know a fair amount at this point and this is the first time I've actually had to ask a question myself.

Today I went through all of the steps and got RC3 running perfectly on my phone, and am loving everything about it. The only problem that I am having is getting the super launcher2 to work...I downloaded from the link in this thread and installed it on my phone, but nothing changes. Just curious if I'm doing something completely wrong (remember I said I know a fair amount, but that definitely doesn't mean I know what I'm doing), or if the new launcher is supposed to look the same as the one that comes with the ROM...?

Any help you could give you would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hey everyone, awesome forum you guys have going here! Everything I know about rooting, or my DX in general I have learned from the threads here, which is impressive because I know a fair amount at this point and this is the first time I've actually had to ask a question myself.

Today I went through all of the steps and got RC3 running perfectly on my phone, and am loving everything about it. The only problem that I am having is getting the super launcher2 to work...I downloaded from the link in this thread and installed it on my phone, but nothing changes. Just curious if I'm doing something completely wrong (remember I said I know a fair amount, but that definitely doesn't mean I know what I'm doing), or if the new launcher is supposed to look the same as the one that comes with the ROM...?

Any help you could give you would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I noticed that too lol, i didn't see any difference at all :P

I am pretty sure by the way I am reading the post where it is that it is the launcher from this ROM so you shouldnt see a difference. It sounds like its posted in an installable apk for us to use with other ROMs if we like it.


I've updated the 3rd post with a theme :)

Awesome! I love revolution. And still running great here, now looking great too :big smile:

If the ROM installed fine and you verify that you are on the correct kernel and radio, I would just try booting into recovery and performing another factory reset.

EDIT: Beat me to the punch!

Ok wow that makes a lot of sense haha. Thanks! all is well then!

One more thing I've noticed is that I can't get my phone to charge in my car now. When I plug it in, it acts as if I'm plugging and unplugging it very fast, displaying the message that it says about unplugging your charger to save energy and beeping/vibrating hundreds of times a minute. Just curious if anyone else has had this problem or if I am the only one. It charges just fine when I plug it into my wall outlet or USB on my computer.

i don't remember this being an issue in previous releases, but as much flashing as i've done in the past month or 2 i can't really remember.

i thought this had been set up to bypass the stock lock screen if you have the pin or pattern lock set up. i use the pin and widget locker and i have the pin timer set to 10 minutes. i notice when i have to use the pin to unlock, it will show widget locker, then the stock lock screen, then the pin. is this a bug or just a side effect of widget locker? i could have sworn on the past releases (on .596) this didn't happen.


edit : flashed the revolution theme, and the problem went away. works for me.

Ok, so I was previously on SSX, so i used the TBH monster SBF file to try and make sure i was on .340, used z4, installed bootstrap, wiped data/cache/dalvik, mounted system, and then flashed the AIO. Well it said it completed, reboot, the Google symbol showed up but then it put me right in to bootloader. Couldn't get it to do anything else, had to SBF. I'm pretty sure i followed the directions to the letter but still didn't work :(. Any help?



Edit: Upon looking again, apparently i'm on the wrong kernal version? How do i change that? My kernal is showing 2.6.32.9-g55626e1

Before mounting, did you format system, data, and cache then mount? I wouldn't use the tbh monster zip, use fabs zip instead.

For .340 (Froyo) users, download the Apex AIO file below. In recovery, format system, data, and cache. Then MOUNT SYSTEM, and install Apex AIO. You will be on .602 with new kernel, baseband, and of course, Apex. FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS WILL RESULT IN BRICK REQUIRING SBF. mean the droidx bootstrapper or the one built into phone?

I used Rom Manager to do all my wiping but I think it left over some MIUI things causing some FC issues at start up.

I can't figure out how to get this thing into Recovery mode. I tried holding power + home key but it didn't do it the Google logo just kept showing up no Triangle with an ! mark. I also tried D2 Bootstrapper and Rom Manager but neither will boot into recovery. How do I get into recovery to try to format again?

I thought that's what it was. Watermark'd that you did for Lib. Any chance you're gonna share this? I've been thinking about trying this new Apex because everything fab does is usually top notch. And I'd like to see how his 602 is coming along. I'd probably use revolution if watermark'd isn't available yet. But I've always liked watermark'd and the rivers. I've complained about not having the red ones but Blue will do. :big smile:

Forgot something: did you port watermark'd to the apex rc2 596? Is that what you're using, a theme for RC2 596? I can't imagine that working on 602. But I don't know.

Holding power and both volumes gets you to where you need to be to SBF. Holding power and home puts you into stock recovery, with the triangle, but, you still have to hit the hard search button to get to the options menu.

If you mean clockwork, good luck, I've tried all four methods located somewhere in this forum, and had varying degree's of success with them. This is when I was bootlooping the other day. I ended up using stock recovery to wipe data that got me into my rom so I could then tell it to go to clockwork.

Having issues, maybe someone can tell me how to get it working. I did the SBF to .340 I tried to get .602 on with the two part zip. everything worked up until the two part zip and it would give me an error and not install the zip. I saw the AIO for .340 to RC3 and it does the same thing. I've followed instructions to the letter, but most be missing something. Thanks!

if you're going to sbf anyway, just use the 2 part. when fab put out the first version of this for .602, he said that some people were having issues flashing from the AIO

08-29-2011, 09:30 PM
Hey man I just came from ssx with no issues at all. I used the all in one. Again followed the directions. I manually formatted data/cache/system, formated system, installed the AIO, cleared data/cache and dalvik, which was unnecessary then rebooted. I say that last part was unnecessary, I am not extremely familiar with where android put's things, different distros sometimes put stuff in different locations, but its all basically the same so formating cache if its on its own linux partition, should clear dalvik unless its on its own partition.

Anyway, perhaps you can try again. At what stage are you at right now? If you can get into clockwork you shouldn't have any issues, if you can't then maybe try getting into stock recovery and wiping data/cache. This has helped when I couldn't get into clockwork after flashing something that didn't work with something else and I bootlooped.

And Of course to wulf, well man since you've already got that much done, how bout you upload something and call it alpha or beta... Sorry to be so impatient. But those theme's are awesome. Oh well, I've used revolution in the past so revolution it is. Also, can you get morphs to use with zip themer for 596, 602 roms for things like the volume control, I noticed the volume control in your screen was very nice. Thanks Fab for the sweet rom, All is good so far, Actually I didn't expect anything less, at least after the pre-release. Thanks Wulf for putting up with my pestering.. and for sharing your themes.

I was on the Test 2 version of the ROM when RC3 came out and CWM would just reboot my phone when I would tell it to do recovery. I wanted to install RC3 so I tried Droid 2 Bootstrapper and that worked.

I am actually using "Make Your Clock" widget. Search for it in the store. I am just using the free version. The full version lets you add other components such as battery stats, weather information, and memory numbers. You can even download clocks that other people have designed straight through the app. I absolutely love it.

If you download the app and would like to use the clock I made, open this link on your phone.

Well, Taken a Bold Move on my part...

Currently on SSX...So I am told... is Froyo Based...going to Flash back to Apex 1.4.1... .340 Requested by Fab...

My process back...Wipe Data, Wipe Both Caches, Wipe Bat Status...Bcuz I wanted too...

Now to, Backup & Restore...Chose Restore Apex 1.4.1...now Restore....Dont wan'na look...

Keeping my fingers crossed... based on being Froyo...Version 2.3.5

Well, I open my Eyes...its notes...MD5 Mismatch...I am sure this may have to do with 2 init...???

Plan B...
Restored my Backup with SSX...doing its thing...Looking Sweet so far...Hopefully, it gets me back to SSX with no Issues...so far, everything is restoring...Restore is Complete...Here we go...Reboot...

Anticipation...This is like having Seat-Belts sitting on a Toilet anticipating an Explosion or SBF...Oh! Same thing...

Holy Macroon...No SBF to do...
Its back to SSX...

Well, That didn't work...The next piece ...To The RC3 Process to Apex in RED...Sounds like the "Lady In Red" prefer her process rather then Apex...

Well, tommorrow night is the Plan...

For those that wanted to know... if you could Flash to a Restored ROM based on .340 the answer is NO...Well at least in Bubba's World...;)

Just Flashed back to Miui...MD5 for Both ROM's are a Match with 2 init...

I thought I could Jump the system...Restoring back to Apex 1.4.1 then to RC3...Well, you know the answer to that one...
Just spent a couple of days with SSX...Just checking Performance and the total Package...

I have to tell ya...A Nice ROM...but they are Both Awesome...

Getting a Little Frisky with Flashing...Want to be able to Float with 3 ROM's to Test the Waters...

Not sure on this piece...If I couldnt get back to Apex 1.4.1 from SSX...Miui may be the same results...I think once you Initiate 2 init...its changes the rules floating back to .340...even tho its a Froyo Based...I am not a Tech Guy...Trust me on this piecs...LOL

Ok, want to try this apex thing, I'm on GB 602 pre-rooted with P3s 2 part 602, no ROM, i re-installed TiBu, had it before but removed after some ppl said it caused problems. Reinstalled it, Now it just FCs whenever I start it. Will Jrummy's rootools backup work? And/or Mybackup from rerware?

If things aren't to my liking, can I just restore a 602 CWR backup? Or do I have to sbf, and reinstall the 2 part 602?

Has anyone been able to change the density after getting on Apex? It really makes a big difference to me in the quality, near HD, of screens with lower density (higher resolution). I heard ppl had issues running droid overclock on this, which I used, among other things, to change the density so it's more hi-def.

Really want the solid blue circle battery mod on here, I have a flashable but was told I sholdn't do that as it changes framework, so I guess I need one that I metamorph in with, ideas?

I started the day running the latest nightly from cm7 it was a little buggy,so I looked around my sd card and seen a backup from 5 days ago, so I flashed it, turned out to be a liquid rom but I had forgot to backup my call and sms logs, bummer, so I'm thinking about finding a better battery life rom when I wandered over into this forum, where I learned I could flash the AIO APEX 2.0 RIGHT OVER MY 2ND INIT ROM, WOW!! Everything went smoothly, I started this around noon time with 90%battery, it's now around midnight I have 70% battery, awesome, great frikken work!!

This Backup I've always used to get back to Apex 1.4.1...but Since I updated to... 2 init...It apperars it will not allow me to Restore...Which is Fine...:confused:

If Apex was a Clean Backup then...

1...Why would it be Corrupt now?

2...What Changed the Backup?

3...Do I delete this Backup now?

To fix that Fab would have to add more blur. Yes you can restore a 602 backup if your on apex rc3 which issue based on 602. First started on 602 then went to shuji then apex test2 back to dsx, from there l restored apex test2 which was also 602 then latest apex on top of that. I think that's all, oh yeah... some in there was I on GB cm7

Is that blur I can add, like they have the blur apps list you can install?

I can't see going to a ROM and lose features/functionality, kind of defeats the purpose. Going to a ROM should keep features at the least and preferably add more. My DX is running pretty quick now, and ok batt life. Not sure the benfit of goign to Apex, other than batt?

Did you first start on 602? You don't need to go to mounts and storage. You could try data, cache, dalvic wipes and maybe battery stats then flash apex.

If you have 602 backup restore that then flash apex

I had to download it from the market, which I thought was weird, any way first time was within clockwork, hit reboot into recovery, didn't work, second time powered off, powered on with volume buttons, no go, just boots up third time, I booted into the bootloader, so I tried againand this was weird in clockwork I hit "flash clockwork recovery" then it asked me what type of phone I had, never seen that before, told it what phone I had, then clicked reboot into recovery, and no go.
I havent been on 2.33 in a long time, I'm thinkin maybe install droid2 bootstrapper, and that will do the trick ?

Stability is a feature to many. So is speed and battery life. The ability to customize things like battery icons is also considered by many to be a feature. Well adding these features means running some roms that are absent stock featured like HDMI. So you loose features to gain features. Don't be so hard on roms that lose some of the stock features. Its great to have choice.

I've been on RC1 and RC2 before, but that was quite awhile back and I didn't recall those working then...I've been off Apex 2.0 for a good while, so I'm out off the loop in regards to Apex.
Just too lazy to get back on Gb, and Apex was one of the best froyo based roms. So I've stayed here since.lol
So is the RC3 very stable & battery life comparable to Apex 1.4?
Thanks in advance!

As for the Apex toolbox, I have never used it and there is not sound during the boot animation.

As for stability and battery life, the ROM is very stable IMO I have not had a single FC. Battery life has been great! I have the Verizon extended battery but I have been running for 40.5 hours and I still have 40% battery left. The main reason I left the 2nd-init ROMs is because of the battery life.

I would recommend giving this ROM a try!!

Anyone, I tried this rom for about 12-16 hours, maybe 24. It definitely seemed fast, but that could be attributed to tweaks for animation speed etc. How has the battery been for those of you on the stock battery??

Wulf, I'm wondering if you have an eta on your theme? I saw the post where you mentioned the dialer was done. Not trying to rush you or be a pain, I'm sure it's a lot of work. And time is pretty precious these days. Just wondering.

And how are you guys liking this in general? The main reason I left was that I missed the customizations of some of the CM7 based roms. And little things like being able to hold back to kill an app. Or the power widget in the status bar dropdown. Does anyone know if there is a way to make a button or something kill an app on a non CM7 rom?

JSM9872
09-01-2011, 04:25 PM
I was getting better battery life then CM7 but not that much more. Maybe an additional 2-3 hours.

And as far as killing apps with a button press I would think it would need to be built into the ROM. You could always get a task manager with a widget to do that. But I think I have read more why donts on those than anything else. And I dont like how my phone runs with them.

Wulf
09-01-2011, 04:36 PM
Battery life is good, about 15 hours with normal usage on stock battery.

I've been getting about 17 hours per charge as well. I've been going for 10 hours so far and I'm at 60% with moderate/heavy usage. Not insanely good battery life, but i think its better than stock and I am willing to sacrifice batterry life for speed. If I switch my OC profile to battery saver (max CPU speed of 800Mhz) I could get much better battery life haha.

I really appreciate the input fellows. I'm thinking about giving it another whirl since CM7 will also be built on 602 officially probably pretty soon, and revnumbers, already has a few out. So, it'd be nice to try both. I'm kinda surprised fab didn't jump on the CM7 bandwagon. But it's nice to have a couple dev's working on plain ol 602 anyway. Choice is good, it's just so dang gone hard for me to choose.

As like_a_boss said, it was posted that there is a market problem when trying to purchase. Never even tried to buy anything so I didnt notice then while running it.

You see any prroblem restoring apps from jrummy's roottools or mybackup? Can't get TiBu to run, just FCs

I have root tools but only use it for status bar carrier name change ....I did backup thru tibu with apps/data...I've never had it FC on me ...I would try a new flash and try it again ..

Try uninstalling TiBu and reinstalling it. There's no reason why it shouldn't work.

UFB - uninstalled, removed ALL traces of TiBu, reinstalled and now it's working.

BK - I guess it needed you to tell me to do that, it wasn't enough that I did it 3 times and it alwys FCd. Backing up data now, then I guess it's on to Apex.

Awesome great to hear ..make your backups and stock 602 rom backup and you are on the way..one tip: I don't like to restore Android overclock with tibu..maybe its me but I try the rom as stock then when I'm ready for overclock I get it from market . This rom goes well without OC but I started testing it since yesterday and no issues so far..

Ok, I'm about to do it. By stock 602 backup you mean the full backup I made with CWR?

I only use OC to set profiles at stock speeds and screen down low.

The market fix work for you?

Not to be a pain but reading the instructions, I shouldn't wipe anything?
Meet all the requirements listed at the top of the post
Wipe data/cache, dalvik cache (only wipe cache and dalvik if coming from 602 Test2)
Flash Apex
I'm on stock 602 prerooted, so no wipes? or only wipe data?

Any one?

Hello everyone, I installed Apex RC3 with the AIO file after SBF'ing from .596 (TBH two part, deodexed). I first tried installing TBH's two part of the 602 with no luck (tried several times, downloading the files from several serves). I decided to install Apex from Froyo and it was super easy! It was a fast installation with zero problems! Thank you Fabulous!

Questions:
1- Any recommensations for email (exchange supporting html)? Tried K-9 and it is no good (very nice, it is just not working properly). Can the blur email be installed? That one was working perfectly fine.
2- If I want to go back to blur 602, can I just CWR and install the two part file right from Apex RC3? The only thing that might push me to do this is the email (need it for work).

Other than that, love Apex. Super fast, no blaotware, and just clean!

The request was for a mod to disable the lockscreen. Similar to the tablet tweaks on CM7. The No Lock app works pretty good until and actual mod can be created.

My fave rom as usual. Major props to Fab.

Just like the test 2 version, the call settings and contacts editing menus are stock white, not black like before.

I could have sworn there was a revolution theme no clock mod and a smaller battery circle file. Anyone have those?
