    This is a guide on manually deodexing, you phone. (Duh!)

    The reason I am making this tutorial is because I could not get my theme to work with Teenfaces deodexed android. You may want to follows this if you have the same probalem as me, or if you just want to take a shot at doing it.

    What you'll need:
    A Windows based machine
    xUltimate v2.2


    1. Unzip xUltimate v2.2, and launch "Main.exe"
    2. If everything goes well you xUlt should recognize the phone and make a connection. You now should see a list of options.
    3. Run option 1. After option 1 is done, run option 2.
    4. Now these well take a while. Run option 3.
    5. IMPORTANT: After you have run option 3, you MUST navigate to the xUltimate folder and find "origi_frame" folder, and delete "guava.odex". It's a bad file, and interferes with deodexing process.
    6. Now run option 4, and wait.
    7. Exit xUltimate, and put the phone in USB mass storage.
    8. Go back into the xUltimate folder and copy "done_frame", and "done_app", and move them to the root of the sdcard.
    9. Open a command prompt, and do the following:
    Code (Text):
    2. adb shell
    3. su
    4. stop
    5. mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    6. cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
    7. cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
    8. rm /system/app/*.odex
    9. rm /system/framework/*.odex
    10. mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    11. reboot
    Your phone should now be deodexed!

    You may notice an increase in speed, and you now have the ability to edit certain files for effectively. (i.e. services.jar)

    Rainabba and Mike919: For initially working with me to get a white clock, and later deodex.
    toxman: For testing, and being a huge risk taker.
    teenfaces: For letting me use his services.jar
    And especially Xeudoxus: For letting me a guinea pig, for xUltimate, and answering my questions. And also for the making the xUltimate tool. It defiantly makes thing easier.

    I did some looking around and really couldn't find much, what are the advantages to deodexing the phone?

    from what i understand it allows you to theme

    Yep... themeing is the big thing. I used the other method of doing this that I released earlier. The one where you use Koush's bootstrap loader to recover a nand that is Froyo 2.2 rooted and deodexed already. Just simpler.

    Sorry... released to this forum. I didn't make it at all. Just transfered from one forum to another after I found out it actually worked (by doing it myself).

    Haha... no sir... noob still... but learning a ton... my wife is going insane with all the time I spend on my phone and/or on the forums. Can you pm me the link again for the current RSD with the right .ini in it. I am back on my laptop now, did all that on Saturday with her laptop (while on vacation, btw)...

    I'm with you man this is like when I got my C64 all over again. I learned everything I could about that little 1mhz box and learned to code for it in every language I found. (I love assembler).You could say that little computer lead me to my current profession, AS400 administrator, and this thing has me all hyped up to learn just like I did back then. I'm thinking of learning to code for this thing. But I haven't coded in years and not sure I have the time to take it up again. But it has me thinking hard about it.

    I did sbf, universalandroot, update, then deodexed using Koush's recovery. Everything done now, just restoring everything with mybackup pro. This stuff is starting to get really easy to me

    how would deodexing result in a speed increase? I thought it just let you edit the files

    Another stuck at motorola logo here... damn.

    If it means anything, when I tried to do the commands:
    cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
    cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
    the cmd prompt said:
    cp: /sdcard/done_app/* No such file or directory
    cp: /sdcard/done_frame/* No such file or directory

    Good thing I can boot to stock recovery, select reboot system and the phone boots back into clockwork...

    nandroid is HUGE at this point in the game [​IMG]

    I got the same thing, was stuck at the Moto logo, then just booted into CMrecovery and loaded my backup. The easiest way to do it is just to flash the rooted, deodexed version that is floating around the forums.
