    THIS QUESTION HAS BEEN ANSWERED. SEE BOLD TEXT BELOW.

    I'm currently running apeX V1, but I'm trying to get the stock Blur "Text Messaging" app to work. I've tried Handcent and a couple of other MMS apps, but I am not impressed with them.

    I restored to my rooted and just-deodexed 2.2 OTA nand backup and copied the entire /system directory to SD card. Then, I restored back to apeX V1.

    First, I copied:

    Messaging.apk
    Conversations.apk
    BlurEmailEngine.apk <- THIS .APK, ALONG WITH THE PREVIOUS TWO, ARE ALL THAT IS NEEDED - SOLVED 10/29/2010, thanks to Highflyin128!

    from the old /system directory on the SD card to the current /system directory. After rebooting, I saw the "Text Messaging" app in my app drawer. When I ran it, it popped up for a couple of seconds, started loading messages, and then immediately closed.

    So far, I've copied these additional .APKs from the old /system directory to the current one:

    BlurSNMessagingEngine.apk
    MessagesWidget.apk
    SocialMessaging.apk
    UniversalInbox.apk

    But I'm still experiencing the same behavior as before. Any ideas as to what I might be still missing?

    Apex is not a blur ROM, so you cant install blur apps.

    The framework wont support it.

    I have had luck with other Blur apps. BlurAlarm, Dock, and CarDock are all running smoothly, at this point. It is definitely possible, and I don't mind modifying the framework, if necessary.

    more information:

    The blur-res.apk was smaller in apeX than in the 2.2 deodexed OTA, so I extracted both and did a Beyond Compare (Scooter Software) on the two. It has been modified, but it's apparently not the source of my issue, since the only differences are in image sizes. All XML files are the same.

    Here are the differences I've found in /app between my deodexed 2.2 OTA and apeX.

    I currently do not have the following .APKs in /app in apeX:
    AdminFeedNotifier.apk
    AdService.apk
    amazonmp3_1.8.11_signed_zipaligned.apk
    android-syncservice-app.apk
    BackupAssistanceClient.apk
    Blockbuster.apk
    BlurCalendar.apk
    BlurEmail.apk
    BlurEmailEngine.apk
    BlurHome.apk
    BuaContactAdapter.apk
    CityID.apk
    ClockWidget.apk
    cmas.apk
    com.vznavigator.DROIDX.apk
    DLNA.apk
    DlnaSystemService.apk
    Fota.apk
    FriendFeed.apk
    Gmail.apk
    HelpCenter.apk
    HomeSyncWizard.apk
    MagicSmokeWallpapers.apk
    Maps.apk
    MediaSync.apk
    MtlrNotifier.apk
    Mynet.apk
    MyVerizon.apk
    NewsWidget.apk
    oma1motService.apk
    OMADownload.apk
    OMAProvisioning.apk
    PhotoWidget.apk
    PNI-Moto.apk
    PolicyMgrProvider.apk
    PolicyMgrService.apk
    Protips.apk
    QuickContactWidget.apk
    redding-7648-signed-zipped.apk
    SDMService.apk
    Skype_mobile.live.apk
    SocialShare.apk
    StatusWidget.apk
    StickyNoteWidget.apk
    Stk.apk
    Street.apk
    SyncML.apk
    ToggleWidgets.apk
    Visualization.apk
    VoiceCommands.apk
    Vvm.apk
    WmdrmDla.apk
    WmdrmWebpush.apk
    WorkContacts.apk
    YouTube.apk

    I keep thinking the stock messaging app may depend on the presence of one of these. If I could get blur text messaging to work, I'd be 100% sold on apeX.

    So far i installed thru terminal:
    BlurSNMessagingEngine.apk
    Conversations.apk<~~~which is the blur text app
    Messaging.apk

    And still closes upon opening.


    I got all the removed stock blur from Apex- post#2

    Got the Blur Text App to work.

    thru terminal:
    BlurSNMessagingEngine.apk
    Conversations.apk<~~~which is the blur text app
    Messaging.apk
    Universalinbox.apk
    -=====at this point it still wasnt working
    once I installed Bluremailengine.apk...BAM....StockBlurr Text messaging app was working.

    So I dont know if all the above needs installed or just some..But thats the order I did mine, till it worked. And of course use Titanium Backup and Freeze [SMS/MMS PREFS] Messaging 2.2 to stop double notifications

    Just so you know, for the stock blur messaging app, you don't need the BlurSNMessagingEngine.apk, or messaging.apk, or Universalinbox.apk. All you need is the Conversations.apk, and Bluremailengine.apk, and from the /framework folder, you need the com.motorola.blur.library.messaging jar file. This apparently has something to do with the messages that are actually stored. Set permissions and good to go. This should work for ALL roms, blur, or blurless.
