    Droid 2 Deodex and Zip Aligned System & Framework Files

    This is the stock Droid2 System and Framework files deodexed and zip aligned. This first of two packages that contains my Black (HTC) Status Bar Theme that looks like this. The next package will be the stock Droid2 deodexed and zip aliagned with stock status bar.

    ( Picture from my Droid2 Theme for Droid 1. Status bar is exactly the same. Too lazy to update pic :) )​


    It contains all original Droid2 files so if you have renamed or removed files it will replace them. This includes all Droid2 widgets and bloatware. If you have removed or renamed files then you can rename or remove the files from the app folder you placed on your memory card so you do not have to go back after install to clean up.​

    A couple of apk files have been modified so the status icon matches status bar better. I still need to fix up a few more apk files and will post them as an update.zip file.​

    I will have a update.zip file soon so it can be installed with clockwork. If you would like to test it for me please message me to let me know.​

    Root Privilege:
    You must have Root Access to install the files.
    Check this thread and this thread on how to root your phone.​

    ADB:
    You also need to have The Android SDK installed so you can use adb commands.​

    Clockwork Recovery:
    Download from Android Market or check here and make donation after you download.​



    Install Instructions - Recommended Method - Command Line:
    Prep
    Download the archive from above, extract file to your compter. Place app and framework folders from archive on the root of your sd card (/sdcard/app /sdcard/framework).​

    Make sure your phone is plugged into the USB cable and PC Mode is selected and that you have debugging enalbed on the phone application settings.​

    Open DOS prompt and type the following commands or paste them at the DOS prompt.
    adb shell
    su
    stop
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/app/* /system/app/
    cp /sdcard/framework/* /system/framework/
    rm /system/app/*.odex
    rm /system/framework/*.odex
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    reboot​

    Install Instructions - Clockwork:
    Coming Soon!​

    After reboot it will take a few minutes too boot up so be patient. Your phone has not hung on boot unless the droid eye stops moving.​

    Launcherpro:
    Download themed LauncherPro 0.7.9.0 here.
    Extract the com.fede.launcher.apk file and place on root of SD Card.
    Open command prompt on pc and type following commands.
    adb shell
    su
    stop
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/com.fede.launcher.apk /system/app/
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    reboot​

    Good edits to your post, much clearer now, thanks. Themes are usually posted in the ROM section, btw.

    Honestly I had no problems reading it, was clear and easy to understand. I was going to deodex my phone today, this just speeds it up and gives me the blackbar I want so win win for me :)

    The update.zip does not work in clockwork boot recovery? Did you try to mount the system first before installing it?

    Delete com.fede.launcher.apk from the system/app folder if you just want the blur home.

    I'm fairly new to Android and I've been reading about Deodexing and it seems like something worth doing, especially since I just want to run off the stock-rom until most of the kinks with the bootloader are ironed out. That said, is there anything that Deodexing messes up? I'm waiting until you get the stock-notification bar up to do it but is there any downside here?

    No downside besides that if you root you "void your warranty" but you can just flash the phone back with the stock SBF file to remove all mods you have done to it.

    Check out this thread I started to help out new people
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ial-how-hack-your-droid-2-all-one-thread.html

    I will have the stock status bar package up some point today.

    Thanks. I've rooted and been playing around with everything pretty extensively (setCPU underclocked when screen is dimmed, LauncherPro, bootstrap, ect). Just from what I've read, when most people have a deodexed ROM it is usually a custom one and thanks to eFuse I'm trying to be extra careful with side-effects. But that is reassuring to see that nothing wonky happens here.

    Thanks for your work, I can't wait until the stock notification bar package is out to give this a shot.

    Wasn't crap, was a concern...your original post wasn't clear to me, and just PM-ing you wouldn't have helped anyone else if in fact there had been a problem and they had done something before you responded...chill out, don't take everything as an attack.

    I'm not seeing it, is it part of the package or is there supposed to be another download?

    EDIT: My bad, I see it. Is the only way to use the Clockwork Mod or can I use the command line install for it?

    No prob. Just noticed I had the stock status bar labeled as clockwork install. It is command line and not clockwork. Fixed up link...

    Let me know if you have any problems...

    I had the last step before the reboot tell me the mount couldn't be done because it was busy but I just did the command again and it went through no problem, all set. Really digging the transparent drag down menu.

    So, if I am understanding this right, now that it is deodexed I could, theoretically go into LauncherPro and change the background of the App Drawer to be semi-transparent or a different color? Not that I really have the expertise to do so but it would be an interesting experiment.

    Glad it worked out. Did you use the stock status bar? Is the clock text, ongoing and carrier text black? I did not test it and just guessed it would work :)

    In my other thread, How To Hack Your Droid, I will post instructions on how to modify APK files in a bit...it is easy. Install winrar and 7zip. Open, not extract the APK file with winrar. You can drag and drop files when the APK is opened to replace files. When you are doing replacing files just close out of winrar and it will save the changes to the APK. You can extract the APK file as a zip file to see which files you want to work on but you can not zip it up after it has been extracted to have it work. Just replace the files when the APK is open in winrar...
