Default [ROM] DEODEXED Stock Merit (update.zip)

UPDATE- a few people used this CWM version to root so I figure this would be much easier and quicker to root as a zip.

Hey everybody. So i noticed we didn't have this yet and decided to get to work on it. it was a real pain and I had to manually deomplie a lot of it. So i hope people make use of it so it feels like it was worth it.

DISCLAIMER: IF YOU BREAK YOUR PHONE I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE (it works fine and I don't see how you would, but ya know.)

MAKE BACKUPS BEFOREHAND.


BIG THANKS to Xeoxudous for vUltimate and JesusFreke for baksmali to do the ones that wouldn't work.


UPDATE 1-12-This is now an update.zip type file. CWM not needed. no unzipping. and I already added Superuser and fixed all apps. one stop shop.

just download this- DeodexedMeritRoot.zip


DO NOT UNZIP THIS FILE!
Navigate to recovery, install zip from sd

IF YOU ARE NOT ROOTED YET- download and rename update.zip. go to recovery and select wipe user data. it will install and root you


Figured it would be a good base for themeing or roms. If you use it just give me some credit and we are good.

So I took algree's CWM stock backup, rooted it, then got to work. This is entirely stock(orkut,etc.) So don't expect lots of space or anything. It is out of the box pretty much(with root and DeO). so just get yourself superuser and go on and have fun.WILL TAKE A LONG TIME TO BOOT. Your first boot will probably be about 5 minutes, so don't panic if it takes a
bit.

thanks to algree for the backup, stayboogy for wipe data trick and tmp cwm algree used.

Dropbox link edit:dropbox is taking a year to upload, so ill put it in when its done.

So I took algree's CWM stock backup, rooted it, then got to work. This is entirely stock(orkut,etc.) So don't expect lots of space or anything. It is out of the box pretty much(with root and DeO). so just get yourself superuser and go on and have fun.WILL TAKE A LONG TIME TO BOOT. Your first boot will probably be about 5 minutes, so don't panic if it takes a
bit.

Instructions: Download file. Unzip it(i use 7zip). take the folder you get and move it /sdcard/clowckwordmod/backups. Boot into ClockWordMod, pick backup/restore, scroll to DeOdexedStockMerit and pick yes. Sit back and let it load, then reboot.
Very nice work!

Does this mean you can delete one app without another being dependent on it?

as far as keeping it all stock, I doubt it. I tried to use videos with the broken gallery and it fc on me. pushed to right one and its fine.

And what started as a theme is turning into a full blown ICS look alike ROM. It won't have all the functions of 4.0 but it looks great and is pretty snappy so far. Still tweaking it.

so far it looks like this.

looking good, man.

i'm liking the deodexed too.

i unpacked the .img, edited the system apps to mirror what i slimmed mine to, took the framework directory too, and then made an update.zip to delete both those directories on my phone and replace them with the deodexed versions.

much much better. it's actually a little snappier too.

good work.

i also have a nandroid that has the correct gallery app replaced--i can upload it if you need it. that way no one has to do it manually.

I would like to save myself some time and work and extract a few of the core apps that you have deodexed so that I can theme them and add them to my roms and patches. Apps like phone.apk, contacts.apk, messaging.apk and settings.apk are the ones I will use, most of the other ones dont contribute much to the User Interface

EDITed EDIT- would be nice to have it pre-rooted for folks that dont wanna mess with that again. 2nd edit, Boogy just told me that it was in fact rooted but I couldnt get link2sd to gain superuser permissions with either superuser, or superSU, not sure...

Yeah thats cool, just mention it or whatever. And yes it's rooted already. I've flashed back and forth with this and stock unrooted. Is link2 the only thing not working? can you edit files and stuff?

@sb thanks dude. Its coming along pretty good. I already have a backup to upload, probably got time to do it this weekend.

I just flashed over real quick and it was still giving problems, but a data and dalvik wipe in cmw fixed it. I guess I should have just tried that first. But if this happens to anyone else... thats what fixed it for me.

@james. ahh one of those. I usually wipe caches before i install anything as a force of habit. Probably shoulda mentioned it in the op.

@sb yeah a little bit further, having a hell of a time with one little modification so far. Im thinking of dropping a sort of beta of what I got so far today.

Dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/5536p9lmg930kvt/DeOdexedStockMerit.zip

ADDED: Gallery3D didn't recompile right the first time, so here is an updated one that works. Just download and adb push it into /system.

Outofideas, D/L file and installed on my Merit. Checked to see if it was rooted w/root checker and found it was not rooted. It was a rooted stock ,right?

This was my life saver, only had one problem. When I tried to restore it with CWM Recovery it failed with an error about the boot image being corrupted. So what I did an advanced restore and used a boot image from one of my previous backups and then restored the system, data, and cache from this backup. It worked great!
Thanks a ton.

Idk what the problem was, I know it's not an md5 mismatch (I checked manually). It may just me my phone, because if I remember correctly I tried to flash speedfreak and ran into the same problem, I tried my same work around but speedfreak loads the ext during the boot or something like that so without it's own boot.img it got stuck in a boot loop. But it allows me to restore my own backups of the boot, go figure. I'll look into it some more and see if I can put a finger on the cause.

Hi,

I downloaded the file and renamed it update.zip then copied it to the sd card on the phone (ZTE Merit ZTE990G). I tried installing it by holding down the power, volume, and menu button button to access system recovery and wiping the cache partition then then selecting the wipe data/factory reset option. This is what i see on the phones screen:

--Install from sdcard...
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
Installing update...
E: Error in /sdcard/update.zip
(status 2)
Installation aborted.

Any help would be great.

Thanks!

google isn't the authority concerning android info. in fact it's lacking like the rest of the net is concerning android information. if you want to learn about it you must dive into the source code...

status 2 i've seen several times, but i've never really figured out what it is definitely. even looking at the source i can't tell you 100% what it means. my experience leads me to believe it is a corrupted file error of some kind. i've gotten it when the whole file didn't get copied to the sdcard before i rebooted the phone using a linux box.

status 7 is the wrong api update-binary and status 6 is failing signature verification i believe.

I'm a pretty firm believer that if it exists and you know how to look for it , google is gonna find it. I ended up on a chinese development bbs to finally get that swipe to remove working. still cant find a damn smali guide though

7s could be if you are using AOSP binary mount language on a stock update script.(like if I used your mount language on my binary it wouldnt work.) i also get 6s for lots of dumb little stuff(not switching EOL to UNIX, forgetting a ;, and stuff like that.)

2 being a corrupted error makes sense.

yeah try swapper2, or a kernel with swap.

I've never used it and don't really get why people do. involving the sdcard for ram just makes it slower and android is designed to use high levels of the available RAM. I'd much rather run overclocked for games and what not.

go into Superuser and scroll to the left and see if all the
rwx-wrx- stuff is in green.

if not, update the binary from there.

checking current install path /system/xbin/su
downloading new binary okay!

so you can go up to /system level and check files, but cant delete?

did you mount system as writable in ES root settings?
try going into recovery and wiping your cache then rebooting

Ok, flashed the deodexed, had to use a separate "Update.zip" which included clockwork mod to flash it, otherwise i got failure to update. What I would like to know now, is where can I get ICS Lookalike Rom?! I want!

Thank you all for your research, work and information.
