[ROM] ApeX 1.3.1 for Droid X - Running, running, as fast as it can (12/16/10)
ApeX V1.3.1 for Droid X - 2 parts AOSP, 1 part Blur, all ApeX (now with a hint of Gingerbread!)
If at any point in time you get a system not responding message at bootup, do not panic! Just hit wait, hold down power to bring up the menu, and hit reboot.
This ROM is only for Droid X users who have done the .320 leak or have gotten to .340 via OTA update or SBF. This is not compatible with 2.3.15
Many common questions about Apex have answers that can now be found at the official Wiki. Please take a look below, thanks!

Credits to P3Droid, TBH, Team DeFuse, JRummy, Xeudoxus, Beesley, Cyanogen, Pete, and many more. Without all the contributions of the devs to the Android community, this would not be possible. Thanks!

(older, will be updated soon)
Scripts: Use in terminal emulator or through adb. For installation, removal, and switching of apps. To get a detailed description of what each script does, just type the script without any modifiers into terminal emulator. The dashes are to be ignored (they are pseudo bullet points).
Install/Remove system apps: (warning, these are very powerful! Use with caution)
*Place desired file on /sdcard
Installation Instructions: Please have a nandroid of your current setup in case this is not for you
Users coming from 1.3.0 may be safe to keep data and cache. If there are problems, then factory reset. - Uninstall updates to Market and Google Voice Search if they're there under Settings->Applications->Manage Applications first.
-Place file on your sdcard. Bootstrap recovery and reboot recovery
-Navigate to mounts and storage. FORMAT data, and cache
-Return to previous menu and install .zip from sd card
-Choose ApeX and install!
-Place file on sdcard. Install ROM from sdcard in ROM manager. Wipe data and cache.
-If you're using another launcher besides ADW, do not use the 'Search' widget. That's for ADW only. It'll get stuck at the top of your screen if you use it on LauncherPro. Use the 'Google Search' widget instead.
Themes from 1.2.1 should be compatible. Get them here:
Themes For ApeX (12/8/10) - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum
Apps removed from 2.3.320
-You can reinstall Blur apps from this archive by placing the desired .apk files on your sd card and then using the install script!

Reason: regarding system not responding.

Goodies - Install these the same way you did the ROM, but don't wipe.
Much improved Gingerbread keyboard (with bigger keys) - credit to kejar31:
Goodies pack 1: This includes the battery icons with percentages by tom108 seen here as well as AppWidgetPicker, which groups multiple widgets of the same app together. You can read about it here.
New Scripts in 1.3.1
overclock - launches terminal based overclocking script by JRummy. This has 4 different voltage levels and 11 frequency options per. Also allows setting on boot.
nexus - lets you choose which Neural Network LWP to use, the Nexus S version, or the CyanogenMod version. This will cause your phone to reboot.
microbes - can install or remove the Microbes LWP
New Scripts in 1.3.0
Both of these scripts rely on files I've installed to your sdcards. Please make sure that the sd card is NOT mounted to your computer before running these scripts (i.e. Mass Storage Mode)
fabadw: use this to automatically load up my ADW presets. You can use this as a base to customize ADW further (I find the default configuration a little...lacking).
Then, go back home, menu, adw preferences, and scroll down to restart ADW.
keyboard: this switches keyboards, with 3 options (gb, wmt, bmt)
wmt: white multitouch
bmt: black (AOSP 2.2) multitouch
Be warned, this does restart your phone after applying this script! Also, upon rebooting, you will need to switch keyboards back to the choice you made, as it will automatically switch to Swype because the script deletes the keyboard first, then restores your choice.

Reason: better gb kb
Downloading and will install in a few minutes.
Looks like I'm dowloading the leak this weekend. Anxious to hear how this is working!

Does this keyboard still suffer from the weird mini treatment that requires the LCD Density app?

Love this version! The scripts are awesome, but I think I'll be sticking to my blue and black swype keyboard.
Let me just say, Ive flashed every rom out for the X. With that said I must say this is by far THE BEST ONE IVE TRIED. It runs flawless. I have ZERO issues. Everything works perfect on my phone. I wish they shipped the X like this stock. I love the GB keyboard, no its not the little one. I love the GB icons in the status bar, this rom is FAST. Blazing fast on my phone. Cant say enough how awesome this is. Hats off to all who worked on it. This is a must on any X!!

First, go into settings, and confirm that you are on build 2.3.340 and Android version 2.2.1. If that's all good, then go here:

Then, download Droid X Bootstrapper from the market, click bootstrap recovery, reboot into recovery, backup/restore, backup.
Once you reboot back into android, you can follow the steps in the first post to install this ROM.
