    I found a site that has the 2.3.20 droid 2 files deodexed as an update.zip. Would this work for me to deodex my phone?

    I would like to run black glass deodexed, however it is not 2.3.20 compliant as I understand. But I would still like to deodex so I am prepared for a new update.

    Any experts have an answer for this one?

    It's not a different version. I am currently on a rooted droid 2 version 2.3.20 that is odexed. My question is if I can use the deodexed version in that thread to deodex my phone so I can use the black glass theme.

    I think you're missing the question. The deodexed file I'm talking about isn't a theme. It's just a 2.3.20 deodexed version of the Droid 2 files. My question is:

    can I use the deodexed update files to deodex my phone so that I can use the 928 deodexed ROM?

    Follow the link the original post so you know what file I'm talking about.

    Okay good, that's what I was wondering. So the only way to deodex is the traditional adb route then. I tried that all day yesterday and ended up with a brick. I attribute it to either the deodexing went badly, or the deodexed version of the black glass theme is not compatible with the 2.3.20 update, or both. Wish this stuff was easier!

    Thanks for your time in this.
