    [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!

    Main Page - FabDroid Wiki

    Changes in V1.3.1

    -Bluetooth voice dialing is now working
    -Nexus S Livewallpaper now default (CyanogenMod one available via script)
    -Further theming of Gmail, Email, Music notifications icons
    -Market and Voice Search updated to latest versions
    -Nexus S Wallpapers and Pete’s 2.3 Icons are available on /sdcard/ApeX/
    -JRummy Overclocking Script (fixed for new oc module, customized voltage values)
    -Startup scripts have been moved so they are no longer overwritten by OC apps (i.e Jrummy)
    -Quick Office is fixed
    -Nexus S Microbe LWP can be installed via script
    -Using Blur text message by default now (fixes a couple quirks)

    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!

    Features:

    -Optimized & Zipaligned framework and applications
    -Combination of AOSP and Blur apps (customize with scripts!)
    -Build.prop and sysctl.conf mods (ty Beesley, nenolod, drod!)
    -Gingerbread Android 2.3 Theme from SDK image
    -Transparent Notification Shade
    -ADW.Launcher with up to 7 homescreens (5 by default)
    -Neural Network Live Wallpaper from Galaxy S
    -Built-in ad blocking (toggle with script)
    -MMS app w/ black background (switchable to Blur via script!)
    -Yahoo! email and corporate sync working
    -Custom window animations and transitions
    -Spare Parts, Terminal Emulator, Wireless Tether preinstalled
    -Many scripts to customize and make this ROM yours!

    Screenshots

    (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).

    Remove/Restore Scripts:
    -calc
    -dxeye
    -genie
    -launcher
    -office
    -tether

    Switch Apps:
    -alarm
    -carhome
    -email
    -gallery
    -keyboard
    -messaging
    -nexus

    Install/Remove system apps: (warning, these are very powerful! Use with caution)
    *Place desired file on /sdcard
    -install
    -uninstall

    Miscellaneous:
    -adblock
    -cpuinfo
    -fabadw
    -microbes
    -overclock
    -sound
    -sys
    -zipalign_apks

    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!

    OR

    -Place file on sdcard. Install ROM from sdcard in ROM manager. Wipe data and cache.

    Download Link:

    Fabolous_ApeX_V1_3_1.zip

    QUIRKS

    -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:

    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

    Extras:

    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!

    Goodies - Install these the same way you did the ROM, but don't wipe.

    Much improved Gingerbread keyboard (with bigger keys) - credit to kejar31:

    GoodGB_KB.zip

    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.

    ApeX_V1_3_0_Goodies1.zip

    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).

    su
    fabadw

    Then, go back home, menu, adw preferences, and scroll down to restart ADW.

    keyboard: this switches keyboards, with 3 options (gb, wmt, bmt)

    gb: gingerbread
    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.

    Big fan of your roms - thanks for making my phone perform like it should!
    (All the "cannot play audio file" errors pushed me over the edge and made me root&rom!)

    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!!

    in terminal:

    su
    gallery -mot

    and for future reference, you can type just about any of the scripts in the first post without the modifier at the end (i.e. -mot) and it'll print out the correct usage (all the options, and what they do)

    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:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=833953

    and get z4root, which is a 1-click rooting app that works on the new OTA.

    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.
