    ApeX V1.3.1 for Droid X - 2 parts AOSP, 1 part Blur, all ApeX :D (now with a hint of Gingerbread!)

    If at any point in time you get a system not responding message at bootup, do not panic! Just hit wait, hold down power to bring up the menu, and hit reboot.

    This ROM is only for Droid X users who have done the .320 leak or have gotten to .340 via OTA update or SBF. This is not compatible with 2.3.15

    Many common questions about Apex have answers that can now be found at the official Wiki. Please take a look below, thanks!

    Main Page - FabDroid Wiki

    Changes in V1.3.1

    -Bluetooth voice dialing is now working
    -Nexus S Livewallpaper now default (CyanogenMod one available via script)
    -Further theming of Gmail, Email, Music notifications icons
    -Market and Voice Search updated to latest versions
    -Nexus S Wallpapers and Pete’s 2.3 Icons are available on /sdcard/ApeX/
    -JRummy Overclocking Script (fixed for new oc module, customized voltage values)
    -Startup scripts have been moved so they are no longer overwritten by OC apps (i.e Jrummy)
    -Quick Office is fixed
    -Nexus S Microbe LWP can be installed via script
    -Using Blur text message by default now (fixes a couple quirks)

    Credits to P3Droid, TBH, Team DeFuse, JRummy, Xeudoxus, Beesley, Cyanogen, Pete, and many more. Without all the contributions of the devs to the Android community, this would not be possible. Thanks!

    -Combination of AOSP and Blur apps (customize with scripts!)
    -Build.prop and sysctl.conf mods (ty Beesley, nenolod, drod!)

    -Transparent Notification Shade
    -ADW.Launcher with up to 7 homescreens (5 by default)

    -Built-in ad blocking (toggle with script)
    -MMS app w/ black background (switchable to Blur via script!)

    -If you're using another launcher besides ADW, do not use the 'Search' widget. That's for ADW only. It'll get stuck at the top of your screen if you use it on LauncherPro. Use the 'Google Search' widget instead.

    Themes:

    Themes from 1.2.1 should be compatible. Get them here:

    Themes For ApeX (12/8/10) - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    Extras:

    Apps removed from 2.3.320
    -You can reinstall Blur apps from this archive by placing the desired .apk files on your sd card and then using the install script!

    Goodies - Install these the same way you did the ROM, but don't wipe.

    Much improved Gingerbread keyboard (with bigger keys) - credit to kejar31:

    GoodGB_KB.zip

    Goodies pack 1: This includes the battery icons with percentages by tom108 seen here as well as AppWidgetPicker, which groups multiple widgets of the same app together. You can read about it here.

    ApeX_V1_3_0_Goodies1.zip

    New Scripts in 1.3.1

    overclock - launches terminal based overclocking script by JRummy. This has 4 different voltage levels and 11 frequency options per. Also allows setting on boot.

    nexus - lets you choose which Neural Network LWP to use, the Nexus S version, or the CyanogenMod version. This will cause your phone to reboot.

    microbes - can install or remove the Microbes LWP

    New Scripts in 1.3.0

    Both of these scripts rely on files I've installed to your sdcards. Please make sure that the sd card is NOT mounted to your computer before running these scripts (i.e. Mass Storage Mode)

    fabadw: use this to automatically load up my ADW presets. You can use this as a base to customize ADW further (I find the default configuration a little...lacking).

    su
    fabadw

    Then, go back home, menu, adw preferences, and scroll down to restart ADW.

    keyboard: this switches keyboards, with 3 options (gb, wmt, bmt)

    gb: gingerbread
    wmt: white multitouch
    bmt: black (AOSP 2.2) multitouch

    Be warned, this does restart your phone after applying this script! Also, upon rebooting, you will need to switch keyboards back to the choice you made, as it will automatically switch to Swype because the script deletes the keyboard first, then restores your choice.

    I've clarified that in the OP though, thanks!

    Just to clarify, do I need to run the "-zipalign_apks" script? Or is it done by default?

    I'm a noob with scripts, my guess is that the stock apps are zip aligned, but downloaded and installed apps are not?

    If that is the case, what do I enter in terminal emulator to get this done? Sorry for my noobness.

    I'm getting the same FC as Steady Hawkin regarding gmail FC. Actually, I started getting that error after installing the Revo Theme. Also, the blacked out menu (nice touch btw), has reverted back to the stock color :(

    My guess is, something in the Revo theme is not compatible with ApeX 1.3

    Guys, Gmail FC is because of the update today. This ROM has the newest Gmail from earlier today on /system, but you guys have them on /data, which is why it's FC'ing.

    See if you can uninstall Gmail from applications settings.

    SBF'd from Apex 1.0.2.1 to 2.2, downloaded the update.zip to get to 2.2.1, then flashed Apex 1.3.0 . . . running great so far, except for one thing: I used the script to switch to the black keyboard, and when I wanted to switch back to the Gingerbread kb it would restart as if it worked, but I still get the black keyboard. I can't even switch to the white keyboard at the moment . . .

    Never mind, just realized the black keyboard was Swype (so I switched to the GB keyboard in settings). Any way to get the white Swype keyboard back, though?

    Crazy, so I could not find Gmail in app settings, nor could I uninstall from download section of the market. Luckily I had a copy saved in titanium, which I loaded and now its working like a charm! Now if I could only get that black bar back on this theme my life would be complete ha ha ha. THANKS AGAIN FAB!

    Thanks for the update. Love the ROM and the theme. Only thing I end up adding to make it complete is AppWidgetPicker from XDA. It groups all the widgets together making it oh so fresh and clean.
