    Android has, at its base linux but our apps are java.

    To run the app, linux opens a dalvik virtual machine (like VMware) to run the java apps. A .dex file is a Dalvik Executable (like windows exe files). An .odex is an optimized .dex file. Some manufactures (including Moto) use them for the system apps and frameworks. For many of the factory apps/frameworks there will be a corresponding .odex file. The problem with these, is that it makes it difficult to theme.

    To simplify theming we "deodex" the apks by decompiling the .odex, and recompiling it as classes.dex and injecting it right into the apk. Now what was two separate files, is now one apk.

    There are benefits and costs to each method, but because of Theming, the general consensus is to "deodex."

    Hey so I'm running Fission 2.4.3 for quite some time now on my D2G...
    It's starting to get awfully slow at times now (too many apps / junk build up), also getting crashes (reboots the phone, not a full reboot though, not sure what this is called but I've heard it is an issue with Fission 2.4.3) several times per day when unlocking the phone.

    Anyways, I'm wondering, would I find more enjoyment out of using this ROM since it is the latest and greatest version of Android (2.4.330 right?) versus Fission 2.4.3 which runs Android 2.2 correct?

    I really liked Fission because it was a very Stock Android experience without any of the Motorola "Blur" crap...

    However, if this ROM is also completely Stock Android AND its the latest and greatest from Google, then I'd be best off using this ROM then right?

    Also, would I have any trouble flashing this over my current Fission 2.4.3?

    Correct me if I'm wrong about anything...

    Thanks!

    This is stock motorola...not google :(

    It is essentially how your phone came out of the box, but with the update from December.

    No benefits over fission, just a full rom, as apposed to just the Frameworks and Apk's.

    Oh bummer...so perhaps I'd be happier to wipe data/cache and reflash Fission?

    Only reason I don't want to do that is because Fission 2.4.3 is getting a bit out of date (meaning no updates from Google upstream) compared to even Motorola Stock...

    What would be the best way to get the most up-to-date Stock Android experience on my D2G?

    Fission is the closest thing to stock google that we've got...

    We can't run true stock google because of the locked bootloader.

    So...while fission is getting dated, it is still pretty good.

    Will the battery life be better on this than fission?

    This rom is a great backup point because it will give you root, deodex (for custom themes), and busybox right at the start.

    I cant thank buryboi enough for putting this together! No more z4root, setting up bootstrapper, deodexing or busybox!!

    Having a nandroid of the moment you've flashed this is a great thing. I know I always have a failsafe on my sd card as well.

    Trikotret you might want to check out team defuse's website, and find and install their fission rom manager lite. Fission is a good starting point for getting rid of motoblur and knowing how to use the phone after that. I'd still be on it but I had started having issues with adjusting brightness, volume controls and viewing battery usage. It is faster and snappier than stock because it has no motoblur, and may (or may not) give you better battery life.

    I dig the blackout theme for it personally ;D

    I dont know if I have the OTA u are refering to. so.....
    1. How do I check and where to see if I need this rom?
    2. do I need to go back to my nandroid back up if theres another OTA?
    3. do i need to unfreeze my bloatware with titanium backup and then run your bloatware script or leave that alone?

    You guys have really been the best help I have found for getting into the rom's and theme's. Without ya'lls help I would be lost. Thanks for all you do and PLEASE keep up the awesome work you are doing. Donation will be sent this week to help and to show my appreciation for what your doing.
