Default [ROM] ApeX V1.4.1 for Droid X & Droid 2 - Refinement and Ease of Use (2/22/2011)


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!

Screenshots







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!



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:

Well done, Fab! I tested the RC2 today and it ran flawlessly. The battery life was so good, it was shocking! I have to test that out more a it was significantly better than everything I ran before, including the last ApeX, which was also amazing.

I highly recommend this rom and dev to newbies and more experienced users. It is the top of the line of roms, imo.

I also urge users to generously support this developer by contributing to him, supporting his superior work. http://fabdroid.com/beer-fund/

Niiiiice! :-)
THIS is what I've been waiting for.
Great timing as well, I just got my replacement X and boy does Stock .340 blowwww.
ApeX 1.4 just made my night.

ApeX 1.4 is extremely stable and Fabolous' toolbox gives you the user, almost complete control over ApeX 1.4!
You decide the level of stock and/or blur.
Battery life is very VERY GOOD!
APEX 1.4 is simply THE BEST!

Go get it Now!
Time 2 get it crackin'!!!

A big thank you goes out to the Devs and Fabolous of course, who all made ApeX 1.4 possible.
Buy FAB a beer!

Can't wait to try this out.

For some reason gallery is showing up as com.cooliris.media.gallery. The app works fine but it just seems weird that it would just say Gallery.

Soon as my replacement X comes tomorrow, this is the first thing I'm gonna throw on it. Then I'll have 1 X with Liberty 1.5 and 1 with Apex 1.4. WHO WANTS SOME SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISONS!

Well regardless I'll probably make a Apex & Liberty thread seeing as how I'll have the golden opportunity. And before anyone asks why I'm getting a replacment and if it'll interfere with the comparisons, worry not! The only reason I'm getting one is cause my camera button doesn't always work.

As for Apex, Can't WAIT to try this out Fab, love your work. I think if someone cracks the bootloader on this phone, Fab, Kejar and Jrummy should create a super ROM. The thought alone gives me the chills =]

First of all thanks,Fab.

I installed the 1.4 rom, and used it a little with no problems.

Then I installed the water mark theme from 1.3, seems to be working good. I did get a couple fc's at first from google process, but it is as smooth as can be rite now.

Thanks again

Great work... its smooth and fast as normal. Looking forward to some new themes for Apex 1.4. I don't like loading old themes over new ROMs.... just seems counter-intuitive.

I came from Liberty 1.5 but all I did was restore a clean backup that I have that I use to install new ROMs with.

Another great job Fab! Installed over 1.3.1 and all is well. Only tweaking I needed to do is kill Madden Football (easily done with the toolbox).

I went over 1.3.1 as well and everything is good. Toolbox tweaking worked quite well.

I am a little sad it doesn't say "ghetto toolbox" anymore.

I jumped over to the Liberty bandwagon but there were some annoyances that have added up. I'm gonna go back to my trusty Apex so long as this new version hasn't added in major bugs.

Really leaning toward trying this out...with a rooted X I've so far not felt the need for anything but stock. (Coming from my old Eris with many different ROMs)

I understand this ROM will come "baked" with ADW launcher. I prefer launcher Pro - can ADW be uninstalled?

Also, I assume I will need to install the Droid X Recovery Bootstrap (for $2.00 from the market) and then I will be able to make a Nandroid of my stock ROM?

Yes, you can uninstall ADW and use LP instead, I prefer LP myself.

And yes on bootstrap.

Yes you can remove ADW and use whatever launcher you would like.

Bootstrap is somewhat required and is real handy for making backups.

Has anyone tried the Clock removal? I was able to get it to work but got a force close on reboot. I then powered down and then started it back up and it worked ok. Just checking to see if it was an app I had doing it or if it was from the rom, thanks...

BTW everything is running very nicely.

Dang it I downloaded the ApeX 1.4.0 zip file and after I wiped data cleared cache, dalvik, etc. I went to install ApeX 1.4.0 and it aborted....I had to restore my Liberty 1.5.

Turns out I didn't get a complete download of ApeX 1.4.0. Maybe it's a sign that I should just stick with Liberty

Same here. For me the only "problem" on Liberty was the battery life. ApeX is definitely superior in this regard.

So I have it installed. Go me! Now, are there any themes available? And if so, how to install. In this regard, Liberty was very user friendly.

You have to flash new themes. Be sure to make a backup in case you don't like a theme. Also, I'm not sure what themes will still work with 1.4.

Got everything set up and all is smooth as expected. It isn't as snappy as Liberty but I suspect it's because of the screen transitions. I think they are pretty enough to keep them on my phone. Now it's time to dig into that toolbox. Would love to have a UI based toolbox like Liberty but I'm not gonna complain any more than that. Thanks for writing all those lines of code Fab! I've been following you on Twitter.

so glad I grabbed that .340 sbf and did just that this weekend. Clean stock, nandroid, now finally have that stock backup to do just this. Great idea and works so good!

Have a ton of backups now, I swear my phone is heavier!
