    Has anyone else had a problem with the latest upgrade to Google Search and the Apex ROM? When I install, I get a package signing error. Is there a new build that takes care of this?

    Trying to install this over the CM7 build for DPro, and I just keep getting an error that says:

    "Can't open /sdcard/ApeX-Dpro-2.0.0-RC4.zip (bad)"

    Any ideas? I wiped data, cache, and dalvik. Thought I could just flash this right over CM7. MD5 checks out.

    Bigxie (the person who made ApeX) has moved to the GNex so as far as I know this is the final version.

    Redownload it. I don't know of any reason you shouldn't be able to flash it.

    Well, no dice. Still getting that (bad) error. I don't know what other information I could provide. That's a real bummer, I had high hopes for this being a nice, stable medium between stock and cm7.

    EDIT: Can't believe it, 4 good downloads, but something happened in transit over usb, and the md5 didn't check out. Switched to another port, and now it's installing. What an odd error. Rebooting into ApeX now!

    Welp. Bootloops. I can boot into recovery, but pressin the @ key doesn't bring up options. How the hell did I get so unlucky? I guess I'll sbf.

    Oh no! I thought I tried that, but not both at the same time! Shoot, now I'm stuck on stock 3.8.7. Anyone have a way to root this phone on linux?

    Wow, solid, I'll be back on ApeX in no time. I'm going to take the 4.6.8 OTA, then root and install over a totally fresh system. I think there may have been some problem with the data and cache wiping, because even my sbf bootlooped until I used recovery to do a factory reset.

    EDIT: Ok, I'm successfully running ApeX. So far, solid. Surprisingly blurry, but I think I really became accustomed to CM7's interface. Still, stability is what I was after, and so far I have no complaints. Thanks for all the hard work on the ROM, and the bonehead technical support I needed.

    Unfortunately nothing else out to move on to that is as stable as this. If you don't use the unlocked GSM radio, CM7 is really the only other option. That might change with the ICS ports, we'll see.

    Looping problem

    When I installed CM7 over 4.6.8, it looped endlessly, or at least I didn't wait 10 minutes for it. I went back in, wiped the cache, and it booted no problem. Since then, I have had issues with bugs on CM7, so I'm looking into Apex. Hope this helps.

    I'm curious, how do you guys like Apex compared to CM7. I know everyone says it is more stable but the only issue I have is an occasional reboot from Google Music which I also had on stock (maybe it's just Google Music in general...) My main concern is battery life which on CM7 has been sporadic the last few days (I am planning on wiping battery stats out once the phone is fully charged.) How is the battery life on Apex?
