    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.

    The message saying it "can't be installed".. how did you try to install?

    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. :(

    I have corporate sync e-mail and the blurless calendar/e-mail worked fine. (Aside from a small folder issue I'm dealing with)

    with which rom? I've added a few APKs back to my apex install, and i see both the AOSP corporate icon and the blur "Corporate Sync" icon. I don't need them, but my dad is getting an X in the next couple days and, based on the state of exchange sync in stock 2.2, ROMing and using the AOSP corporate client may be the best bet...i'm just not sure if it actually works :D

    Finally, something I can help with! I got my corporate email working by doing the following on the APEX release. This will NOT work with RUBIX since it has less blue base.
    To Reinstall blur stuff back to a blurless rom, use Root Explorer (buy it of you don't have it, worht every cent!), or ADP to do the following:
    you need two files (available on the removedapps.zip Fabolos supplied):
    1) BlurEmail.apk
    2) BlurEmailEngine.apk

    Then, as per a previous post, follow these directions for both of these files:

    --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 [COLOR=#812528 !important][COLOR=#812528 !important]files[/COLOR][/COLOR] 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.

    Note that you will then have full email and calender, but no Moto message or calendar widget (no biggee). Any other calander widget WILL work though! I use the Launcherpro since i have the full version.

    Enjoy! Love the APEX!

    I'm running Fission v1.2 and syncing with my corporate exchange server right now. All I did was open "Email" and "Add account" and there was an option for POP, IMAP, and Exchange and it's been working fine for me. There no icon labeled "Corporate Sync"; but, the function is there and it show as a corporate sync under accounts.

    This is what I have been looking for. I used the "white box" app and wasn't all too happy with it. I also used Touchdown, also not a fan. I had asked Fab what I needed to do to get the corporate sync to work and he said he would look into it, but didn't have a real way to test. Thanks for the instructions below.

    yeah, fission v1.2 will work with what it comes with, although RubiX doesn't seem to work at all. the real trick is in getting this to work on roms that are blurless, like rubix focused. any thoughts there?

    Thank you. So what is the extent of the exchange capability? Do you have mail, contacts, calendar, notifications, and tasks?

    I posted about this in the ApeX 1.0 release thread (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ex-droid-x-aosp-experience-56.html#post947775)

    Basically, you need:

    - BlurCalendar.apk
    - BlurEmail.apk
    - BlurEmailEngine.apk
    - Messaging.apk
    - UniversalInbox.apk

    This will give you the full Corporate Sync capability (Email, Calendar, Notifications, etc)

    As stated in the other thread, I prefer the rendering of the emails in the Blur version. They seems closer to the Exchange/Outlook originals.

    If you're using ApeX, just copy the apks to your /sdcard/ and then, in "adb shell", get root (su) and type "install <file>.apk" for each one (replacing <file> with the file name!)
