    ApeX V1.0 for Droid X - the AOSP experience finally arrives on Droid X - kinda :)

    Warning, this is an overclocked ROM! Though the overclock is mild, there is a slim chance your phone may not take. If this is the case, an SBF restore will be necessary.

    Please read the next post on how the overclock script works!


    Changes in V1.0
    -Fixed bluetooth pairing issue, hopefully
    -Grass wallpaper is back ;)
    -Default overclock to 400/600/800/1100
    -No voltage increases
    -Additional sysctl.conf mods (ty drod!)
    -Auto memory management (ty Pete!)
    -Multiple overclock profiles available
    -Overclock script for easy auto overclocking
    -Removed YouTube app, get the awesome one from the market!

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

    Base: Official OTA 2.3.15 deodexed, with Blur thoroughly removed. AOSP apps provided compliments of Tranquility 2.3.7

    Features:
    -Built in overclocking
    -Optimized and Aligned Framework and Applications
    -Build.prop and sysctl.conf optimizations (ty Beesley, nenolod, drod)
    -CyanogenMod (Stock Android) Theme
    -Transparent Notification Shade
    -AOSP 3D Launcher with 5 homescreens (TranQLauncher)
    -Stock Android Lockscreen arrives on Droid X!
    -Neural Network Live Wallpaper
    -Minimum autobrightness level lowered
    -Built-In Ad Blocking
    -MMS app with black background
    -Music Mod by Eliot Stocker
    -Spare Parts app
    -Wireless Tethering preinstalled

    Reinstalling Blur Apps

    If there's a Blur app you just gotta have, you can reinstall it using the install script. Download the following file:

    removedapps.zip

    Those are all the apps from the stock 2.3.15 system I removed. Copy the one(s) you want to your sdcard, and install by typing the following into terminal emulator:

    su
    install BlurJunk.apk

    How to use the overclock script

    By default, this ROM overclocks to 1.1GHz with no voltage increases. There are many overclocking options, all of which are made easier by the overclock script. To see all the options on your phone, you can just run terminal emulator and type:

    su
    overclock

    The options are -on, -off, -def, -lv, -oc, and -sd

    on/off edit the install-recovery.sh script to either have overclocking on or off at boot

    def/lv/oc are profiles. Def is default, LV is stock slots with lower voltages, and OC is mad OC up to 1.3GHz (beware when trying this one, you want to disable auto overclocking first!)

    sd loads up the a setscaling.sh file from /sdcard/

    You will need to reboot to see the effects of a new frequency, OR, just run in terminal emulator:

    su
    setscaling.sh

    Default Keyboards

    If you want to return to the stock MT or Swype keyboard, download these and use the install script to install them.

    LatinIME.apk
    Swype.apk

    Suggestions:

    -Install Droid X Bootstrapper if you use adb push (it auto elevates to su)
    -Go into MusicMod settings and change the notification color (orange by default? Black = FF000000)
    -Use Spare Parts and make all transitions fast and enable fancy input animation
    -Use the scripts to remove apps you don't use
    -Turn off superuser notifications (I find it annoying, anyways)

    Script Instructions(detailed):

    You can run each script without a modifier at the end to see what they do. They will show you the modifiers to be attached at the end, and what it will result in. For removal/restore scripts, the modifiers are -rm and -rs. So if we ran:

    carhome -rm

    that would remove carhome. And carhome -rs would do restore it.

    For the switching scripts, the modifier at the end lets you choose which version you want to use (i.e. -mod for music mod, -mot for Motorola's app)

    As for install/uninstall, I wrote these because I found a lot of people asking how to install an app to the system partition. These scripts will do/undo that for you. Just place the desired file on your sdcard (not in any folders) and run:

    install nameofyourapp.apk

    and it will install to /system/app/ for you!

    If you root your OTA 2.2 and install bootstrap, you can install this ROM by following the directions in the OP.

    In fact, all 2.2 ROMs require you to be on 2.2 anyways besides the initial 2.3.9 leak, which installed the 2.2 kernel as well.

    Nobody try installing this coming from 2.1 please :)

    I was about to ask about the incognito theme as well. I am going to test is once I get everything back installed. As for launcher pro is should work just fine.

    You may have to go into the theme file and remove some of the system apps like Gmail, Maps, etc. if you already synced with the market and have them installed on your /data partition, but there's no framework incompatibilities or anything, they're both 2.3.15 (I'm pretty sure Incognito is, anyways)

    As for LP, it runs great :)

    Absolutely ;)

    Sure thing, install your launcher of choice, then fire up the terminal emulator and type:

    su
    launcher -rm

    If you ever want it back, you can just go into the emulator again and type:

    su
    launcher -rs

    Yes. Switch to a different home launcher. LauncherPro or ADW are two good ones that I recommend.

    Yes it will. As long as you made a backup(like you should have) before installing.
