    Rubix vs Apex

    I want everyone to know that in real world testing between these 2, I would say that they perform equally well when Apex is set to 1ghz and Rubix is at 600mhz. This is when using ADW as the default launcher.

    When both are set to 1ghz, there is not even a hint of a comparison. Remember, I'm not talking about synthetics here.

    If you are on apex, I challenge you to create a Nandroid backup and install Rubix to see for yourself. The proof is in the pudding

    EDIT: I FORGOT TO MENTION!
    I've ran the folllowing code a few days after my Rubix installation. I guess I may be basing my feelings off a tweaked Rubix vs Apex.

    If you have Rubix, run the following code and then put on your dirty shades


    $ su
    # mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    # chmod 755 /system/etc/init.d/01cpuod
    # chmod 755 /system/etc/init.d/02vm
    # busybox run-parts /system/etc/init.d


    You only need to run it once. Drod mentioned this at XDA but may not have here. It will increase performance and battery life!

    Thanks for the heads up. Haven't tried Apex yet. Actually I haven't even tried this ROM with a different launcher yet. Gonna give that a shot today

    Yeah, I haven't re-installed LauncherPro yet. RubiX's launcher has been fine for me and seems like it's built for it.

    I like ApeX. I haven't tried Rubix yet. But why mess with what isn't broken? I don't notice anything slow on ApeX.

    It's kinda like that whole poll about whether or not 2gHz processors are necessary for phones... If you can do better, why not do it?!

    I am going to download it and try it now before I leave work. I am making a backup now to see if I notice a difference.

    I have just left Rubix 1.0 and 0.5 for the past 2 weeks. Yesterday I wanted to try Apex to see how this Rom was. I think Apex was smoother and faster than Rubix on my phone. Used all the launchers, but I always go back to LP. That is my $0.02 worth.

    Cool man. I look forward to hearing your opinion on it. I've not tried ApeX but did extensive reading on the options before putting rubiX on and decided it was the best choice. I'd be curious to hear from someone who tries both back to back. I think you'll be happy with rubiX though
