    Blur Email/Calendar to blurless ROMs

    Hi all,

    I need some help here. I don't like blur, and would like to get rid of it. I do like the AOSP aspects of apeX, for instance, but i absolutely need to have blurry email/calendar for corporate sync. for whatever reason, my corporate email CAN be added to the non-blurred style, but in order to do it, i need to provide administrator access to my phone (including allowing them to remote delete all data....) for whatever reason, the blurry corporate sync (blue sync) and associated bluremail.apk do not require this insanity.

    i tried rubiX focused (which i also like), and tried to install bluremail.apk but get a message saying it cannot be installed. likewise, when i add the apk to system/app/ it does not do anything (do i have to remove the other email.apk?)

    any help would be greatly appreciated. ideally, i'd like the MINIMUM amount of blur required in order to have a blurless rom with corporate sync.

    Im with you 100%

    Im all for blurless roms, but there are many folks like us that need corp sync working. Hell I was and still am willing to pay re first person to figure it out. It just seems like anytime someone brings this up, it gets swept under the rug. Well, the money is on the table.

    likewise. this shouldn't even be that hard, i don't know why people keep ignoring the question every time it is posed on the various ROM forums. i'd also be willing to donate to whoever can solve this issue.

    To Reinstall blur stuff back to a blurless rom, use Root Explorer, or ADP to do the following:
    --Remount /system to ReadWrite (in Root Explorer, that's done by navigating to the /system directory, and tapping the "Mount RW" button at the top).
    --Copy the files to /system/app
    --Change the permissions of the files to match the other files in /system/app (In Root explorer, long press on the file, select permissions, and make it user: Read and Write, Group: Read, and Other: Read.
    --mount Read Only again (button at top of Root Explorer "mount RO"
    --reboot.

    i tried both doing that, and running the .apk. neither works.

    thanks for your help though, do you have any other ideas how to get corporate sync back up and working?

    To which ROM?
    It ****MIGHT**** work on Blurry, but very very unlikely it'll work on any version of Focused. Keeping in mind that the dialer and contacts apps alone will break some things. They both are tied very heavily into framework components. Which ones exactly, I'm not sure.. but you'll likely create more issues than you fix in trying.

    PLEASE make a good backup before testing... and be ready to go back to it.
