    Ok so far, I've rooted my droid 2, deleted some bloatware, changed my M boot up symbol to something nicer, now I want to change themes. I'm still new at this stuff, so maybe you guys can help out.

    I need to be deodexed to change themes but can't find that info in a Droid 2 forum..

    CAN I USE THIS THE X way???

    So I need to now download ultimate x and follow the steps here:


    1. Unzip and run Main.exe
    2. Pull the files, so run options 1 and 2.

    3. Run options 3 and 4, which will deodex your apps and framework. This WILL take awhile so make sure you have a beer and some chips ready. Maybe a tv show.

    4. Those files will output to the xUltimate folder under done_app and done_frame.
    5. Connect the phone into Mass Storage and copy those folders over to the sdcard root.
    6. Now go back to PC Mode.
    7. Time for some cmd prompt goodness with adb, so open up cmd prompt.
    8. adb shell
    9. mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    10. cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app
    11. cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
    12. rm /system/app/*.odex
    13. rm /system/framework/*.odex
    14. mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    15. reboot

    Before I go through the process I should make a backup right? I have titanium backup, Anything else?

    Is that correct? Sorry for the long NoOb post, just want to make sure I'm not screwing anything up.
    THANKS

    What version ROM are you running? If stock you can find one of my threads that has all the files deodexed already and just follow the instructions in it.

    No problem. If you already have root then you might wanna try 2.3.1.5 ROM or tne new R2-D2 ROM 2.40. They are already deodexed but some themes are not updated to 2.40 yet.
