    You may know me from my Rubik releases for the droid 1.. Well recently I purchased a Droid X. I couldn't stand the phone stock, so of course I got busy. I've been working on this for quite a while, gone through quite a bit of bricks, sbf flashes, and passing it to my testers cause I couldn't afford to brick at the time.

    I bring you the first release of the rubiX series for the Droid X. rubiX Focused, It is a blurless rom, keeping gallery, contacts, camera, and phone only.


    Features:
    Tranquility 2.3.5 base (2.2.3.15 base) thanks to p3droid, motorola (hah) and google
    Build.Prop tweaks (thanks to Beesley)
    Market fix
    System fully deodexed
    All apps optimized/zipaligned (Credit to me)
    ADW Launcher as stock launcher (No more laggy blur home!)
    Bloatware removed (Credit to me)
    135.42 MB free in System! Speedy ;) (Credit to me)
    Google market apps removed (download from market)
    Auto Brightness Hack (credit to Pete, huge battery saver!)
    Speed and battery tweaks (Credit to me. Thanks Nenolod and Pete for inspiration on sysctl tweaks)
    Few more things that I'd like to keep secret for the time being ;)

    This rom is VERY speedy, stable, and loveable, it'll make you want to laugh in Moto's face for the locked bootloader.

    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:
    Open DroidXBootstrapper
    Bootstrap Recovery
    Reboot Recovery
    Nandroid Backup (Just in case you don't want to keep my rom or something goes wrong)
    Mounts and Storage
    Format System
    Format Data
    Format Cache
    ****Mount System**** VERY IMPORTANT, DO NOT FORGET THIS STEP OR YOU WILL BE BRICKED
    Install Zip From SDCard
    Select rubiX0.3Focused.zip
    Select Yes
    Reboot System
    Enjoy :)

    The first boot will take a while, so be patient with it loading.

    I am NOT responsible by any means for ANYTHING that may happen to your phone. Blame Motorola for locking the bootloader!

    In case you don't like the minimum brightness level for the auto brightness patch, here's the stock brightness:

    And the Calendar fix, use this one, p3droid's does not fix the issue:

    The facebook app doesn't perform that for the droid x, the blur social networking app does. I'll see if there's some way I can get your contacts to sync. I had it successfully sync in actual contacts, but not in the messaging app

    Figured out a fix myself. If anyone is having this problem, or having problems with any other system apps, I would install them from this system app folder
    http://www.hawkeye411.com/droidx/systemapp.zip . For my problem with facebook contacts syncing, I just installed all blur elements pertaining to contacts / social sync that were pulled out on this rom. Let me know if you need help with this...

    Contacts are still included in this rom from blur. It ties into the phone app, so it wasn't removed, but the social sync ones should fix it. Either way, thanks for making/posting a fix :)

    Right I was being vague, it was socialshare.apk, socialmessaging.apk, and BlurSNMessagingEngine.apk that really needed to be added for this specific problem. Enough said, great ROM. I was actually able to flash this, going from flyx which makes it even awesomer.

    Just wanted to clear it up :)

    Glad to hear you're enjoying it. The X is one step closer to the phone it is capable of being

    What are you looking for in a screenshot? All of the roms out are not themed or anything. The changes the rom makes are to the performance of the X not "how it looks".

    If you clear system, data, and catch you get the "touch here" Android logo to go through the process of setting up your phone after the first boot. It does come with ADW launcher and when you get past the set up in rubix you end up with a blank ADW screen. So... I guess you could install ADW launcher for the first time and thats what it would look like.

    I have themed my phone the same for rubiX as it was on Tranquility so it look the same, but it feels like it runs faster. This is however subjective because IF you were to trust Quadrant to measure performance I get similar numbers. One screenshot I guess you could see a difference is the "About phone" page in the settings. [​IMG]

    Drod will have a patch up for those who use backupassistant shortly. I don't use it, so dont have a backup on hand. The official patch for users will come soon though.
