    Current Toolbox Version: 1.0.6 (2/21/11) - run 'updatetb' to update

    ApeX V1.4.1 for Droid X & Droid 2 - As Blurry or Stock as you'd like. The power is in your hands!

    For Droid X users, you must be on system 2.3.340 already. I think it is safe to assume the overwhelming majority of you already are. There are no additional requirements for Droid 2 users.

    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 V1.4.1

    -updated busybox to 1.18.0
    -switched from install-recovery.sh to init.d startup scripts (won't butt heads with apps anymore!)
    -integrated Marius/Imoseyon's startup/cron scripts into my init.d scripts (well, basically kanged them!)
    -Almost 100% certain I fixed nasty startup FC's!
    -Apex mountain wallpaper is now reaccessible through 'Wallpaper Gallery'
    -THX Certified sound is working ;-)
    -Swype is fixed for D2 Version
    -Toolbox update 1.0.6 (cleaner menu drawing, more themes)

    Changes in V1.4.0

    - New Apex Toolbox (Terminal Based) to customize the ROM to the max
    - New Boot Animation (thanks tntdroid!)
    - New Background, Ringtone, Notification Tone (change of pace!)
    - Taller GB Keyboard, same size as MT Keyboard (thanks kejar31!)
    - Removed Data Throttling (thanks droidxchat for an awesome utility!)
    - Core Apps all updated to latest versions (Gmail, ADW Launcher, Market, Search, etc.)
    - Blacked out Google Talk app (ty kejar31!)
    - Fixed Mms.apk w/ Android 2.3.2 routing fixes (won't send to the wrong person!)
    - MusicMod back by default, supports lock screen controls (ty kejar31!)
    - FC @ Startup fixed (no more wait, power, reboot cycle!)
    - Updated JRummy overclocking script (ty JRummy16!)
    - Option to install leaked Motorola "Connected Player" in Toolbox
    - Finally updated the Swype theme to "Blackout" (ty javroch!)

    - A LOT of new features in the Toolbox (services.jar tweaks, goodies downloader, etc.)

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

    I especially want to thank kejar31 and JRummy16! They've both been very helpful to me to help make ApeX better!

    Features:

    - Optimized & Zipaligned framework and applications
    - Combination of AOSP and Blur apps (customize with Toolbox!)
    - Build.prop and sysctl.conf mods (ty Beesley, nenolod, drod!)
    - Gingerbread Android 2.3 Theme from SDK image
    - Transparent Notification Shade
    - ADW.Launcher with up to 7 homescreens (5 by default)
    - Customizable Neural Network Live Wallpaper from CyanogenMod
    - Built-in ad blocking (toggle with Toolbox!)
    - Google-fixed 2.3.2 MMS app w/ black background (switchable to Blur via Toolbox!)
    - Yahoo! email and corporate sync working (requires switching to Motorola Messaging Suite)
    - Custom window animations and transitions
    - Spare Parts, Terminal Emulator, Wireless Tether preinstalled
    - Many options to customize and make this ROM yours via Toolbox!

    Toolbox: You can access the toolbox by following these three steps - open terminal emulator, type su and hit enter, type apextoolbox and hit enter.

    You can then navigate the toolbox using the corresponding numbers from the menus!

    [​IMG]

    Comprehensive guide to the Toolbox will be up in the Wiki within a few days!

    Scripts: There are still a few scripts left. They are as follows:

    apextoolbox : this launches the Toolbox script
    overclock : this launches the overclocking script
    sys : this mounts/unmounts system as read/write
    updatetb : this updates the toolbox against my server

    Installation Instructions: Please have a nandroid of your current setup in case this is not for you :)

    Users coming from 1.3.1 may be safe to keep data and cache. If there are problems, then factory reset. - Uninstall updates to Market, Gmail, ADW Launcher, & Search if they're there under Settings->Applications->Manage Applications first.

    -Place file on your sdcard. Bootstrap recovery and reboot recovery
    -Select Factory Reset (delete data/cache)
    -Return to previous menu and install .zip from sd card
    -Choose ApeX and install!

    QUIRKS

    - 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.

    - If you add a Yahoo! or Corporate account through the My Accounts app, you will need to use the Toolbox to switch to the Motorola Messaging Suite (MMS & Email)

    Themes:

    Tlo, Am actually complete opposite of you w/Lib and My DX. Lib 1.5 and my DX are Best of Friends..Absolutely No issues at all. It goes to prove that no two DXs are the same and will certainly react differently w/roms..I will try Fab's new release just to cure my curiousity though..I know Fab puts out Fya w/these roms so am sure it'll be all good:) For Themes, I would love to see Tron, Big Crystal DX , or anything Teal or Metallic Blue..

    Whoa hold on, I'm not sure this will work on the Global. In fact, I'm almost certain it won't.

    Can the D2G flash regular D2 ROMs?

    Fab,

    Any major differences between this and RC2? Haven't had issues with RC2 so far.

    Nifty. Let me know how it works out!

    If you need me to host the D2G file, I can do that too ;)
