Confused Theme? Deodex? How-To?

OK.. So I want to install the Galaxy S theme on my Droid 2. Im rooted and have the bootstrap, but how to i deodex my Droid 2? If i have to do it by installing a ROM, are there any custom Roms that still have blur and is compatible with the theme? i really want this theme but i dont want to lose blur because it seems like the few roms that are out for the droid 2 are removing blur. can someone help me?



(I'm sorry, can a mod move this to Droid 2-All Things Root please?)

Moved.

I'll leave a redirect for the rest of today. Hopefully a user with this kind of experience can point you in the right direction. Check out the DX threads too, for the most part it seems these two phones have had similar modding paths.

The things I used to Deodex my D2 are xULTIMATE ver2.2.2 and android SDK. I am running Windows 7 64 bit, you will need to use the SDK Version for whatever your operating system is on your PC.

xULTIMATE is what does the Deodexing, it reads your apks and odex info and creates a Deodexed set of files. You use SDKs ADB shell to copy these files from XULTIMATE to your sd card and then copy them to your system/app folder and your system/framework folder.

Both programs can be found on the web, if you can't find them let me know and I'll see what I can do.

With xULTIMATE installed connect your phone to your PC, make sure usb debugging is on and it is set to PC mode. Select option 5 and let xULTIMATE do its thing. When done as an option you can select option 6 and this creates a zipped backup of your originals incase you want to reinstall them.

Then you use SDKs ADB shell and type these commands,

adb shell
su
stop
mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
rm /system/app/*.odex
rm /system/framework/*.odex
mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
reboot

If you did everything properly, you should now be Deodexed.

It worked for me perfectly, I hope it does for you.
