    [ROM] ApeX 1.3.1 for Droid 2 - Running, running, as fast as it can


    ApeX V1.3.1 for Droid 2 - 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.

    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

    -Built using Droid X 2.3.340 base (official OTA 2.2.1 build)
    -Gingerbread themed dialer
    -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!

    A special thanks to kejar31 for providing a very easy method of porting DX roms to D2, TY!

    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

    -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

    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:

    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.

    *BUG?*

    FYI - I can't get the dialer to work with LCD density anywhere under the stock 240.
    It doesn't show up at all. The contacts, history, and favs work though

    Also, superuser won't give me the option to allow or disallow ROM Manager root access.

    The dialer thing isn't a bug per se, but the way the app is built, it doesn't seem to enjoy having the LCD density modified. I think JRummy found a way to fix this, so I just contacted him asking for some help. Hopefully I can get that working!

    As for the SU app, did you do a clean install or come from something else and keep data? You may need to clear the data/cache for the superuser app by going into settings->applications->manage->all, and try again.

    Good to hear there is a possible fix for the density.

    I just cleared app data for superuser and it worked on ROM Manager. Just have to check root explorer as that was another root access issue app.

    Thanks for your work, glad to see you on the D2 now

    So just flashed and I've noticed the feedback on the bottom buttons was kinda weak and the light beside my USB doesn't come on. Anybody else?

    Yeah the GB keyboard does not seem to work well with the D2. Better just to stick with the multitouch that comes preloaded or Swype.
