    Hey guys and gals, I've been working on this little project the last couple of days, trying to build a stable blurless ROM that gets as close to the AOSP experience as is currently possible on the Droid X.

    Though I've tested this pretty thoroughly, it's still a beta release. Please let me know if you find any bugs!

    Changelog

    Beta 2: stock Android lockscreen, minimum autobrightness tweaked, system is completely optipng'd and zip-aligned, notification bar is no longer rounded :(

    Without further ado:

    README
    Thanks to: TBH, P3Droid, Beesley, Cyanogen, Pete, et. al

    Based on 2.3.15 deodexed
    Blur Removed using Tranquility 2.3.7
    Further Blur Removed

    CyanogenMod 6 Framework Res

    3D AOSP Launcher (TranQLauncher)

    Optipng'd and Zip-aligned

    Goodies:

    -Stock Froyo Lockscreen!
    -Minimum autobrightness level tweaked
    -Build.prop mods
    -sysctl.conf mods
    -Removed all market apps
    -Music Mod by Eliot Stocker
    -Neural LWP (Nexus colors)
    -Black BG MMS
    -AOSP Apps:
    ->Email
    ->Car Home
    ->Clock
    ->News and Weather
    ->Gallery3D
    -Wireless Tether
    -Spare Parts
    -Scripts galore

    Switchable Apps:

    -Music Mod / Stock Music
    -Motorola Gallery / Gallery3D

    Scripts (much thanks to Pete for the format):

    learn the usage by just running the script with no modifiers

    -calc
    -carhome
    -cpuinfo
    -dxeye
    -email
    -gallery
    -genie
    -launcher
    -music
    -office
    -sound
    -tether
    -sys

    Example:

    su
    sys

    ...and it will print what the script does. In this case:

    sys -rw
    sys -ro

    are the two forms, which will either mount the system read/write or read only!


    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

    (if coming from beta 1, no need to wipe data and cache)

    -Please make a backup of your current setup
    -Place .zip on sdcard
    -Boot into recovery
    -go to mounts, wipe system, data, and cache
    -mount /system <<<<-- CRUCIAL STEP, don't miss it!
    -go back a menu, select install .zip from sd
    -find the rom
    -install
    -profit!

    BUGS

    That I know of:

    -Drop down lists still have white text (buttons do not anymore though)

    DOWNLOAD

    -I doubt my DropBox will run out of bandwidth, but if it does...IDK. Beta's over? LOL :D

    -Link is temporarily removed due to major bug

    Suggestions

    -Install Droid X Bootstrapper if you use adb (it makes it auto #)
    -Go into MusicMod settings and change the notification color (orange by default? Black = FF000000)
    -Use Spare Parts and make all transitions fast and enable fancy input animation
    -Use the scripts to remove apps you don't use
    -Turn off superuser notifications (I find it annoying, anyways)

    Very happy to report that all is well so far.

    No errors in logcat, and its very crisp.

    Thanks!

    Well, not from the app, but you can still adjust audio effects by going into settings, sound, adjust meda effects. I think it's a fair tradeoff :)

    If you want to switch back, it's as easy as opening the terminal emulator:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. su
    3. music -mot
    4.  
    -----

    Also, I've read some posts on AF about how Wireless Tether is kinda broken in Froyo - how security doesn't work or it may drop the connection. I didn't really test too long last night, but I did stay connected for about 20 mins with WEP and didn't drop my connection. If someone who relies on tethering a little more can chime in with some experiences too, that would be great :)

    Been using it for a little while this morning and it looks good. Using the CM framework res was a great idea. So far seems to me to be the best DX rom. Nice work Fab

    So, couple questions that may be n00bish but I'm not an android developer, just an IT guy who likes to play with his phone, so bear with me.

    - Where is the launcher? I expected the .apk in /system/app after unpacking the zip and it's not there, or at least not named anything I recognized as the launcher. Just curious.

    - I kind of wondered what it'd take to change the launcher for these ROMs. I like some of these ROMs but run Launcher Pro, and while I recognize that the stock launcher with no widgets is pretty low-overhead, it just drives a little part of me nuts to know it's running in the background. I have renamed the Blur launcher so it won't start up but I also recognize that, since LP is a user app, if I ever wipe the user data I'm going to have to make sure that I can get a launcher back. I'd rather put LP into the /system.

    Probably will go ahead and start with this as my first ROM after the in-laws are done visiting and I have time to play :D

    Works for me as well, don't have a chance to put this on my phone yet, at work but I will later tonight.

    Is this going to be any different than using rubiX with vanilla theme? That is what I am currently doing now, just wondering how different it would be.

    Thanks

    Looking forward to testing this one out. Does anyone know how to install the Blur Alarm clock back onto a phone after it has been removed? I've tried it with Rubix but I can never get it to install I actually like the Blur Alarm clock and the slide feature. Better than using Kaloer Clock.

    The launcher is in /system/app/TranQLauncher.apk

    You can easily "remove" it with the script launcher -rm, and easily restore with launcher -rs.

    I imagine they'd be a pretty similar experience. Honestly, it's up to you if you like to tinker a lot or not :)

    I, personally, don't mind wiping data/cache, but I understand for others it takes a little more motivation.

    Yeah it doesn't bother me to wipe my data/cache, I have everything backup anyways. I figured they would be pretty similar, I will download this when I get home and give it a shot.

    Thanks again for the everything you have done for the community.

    @Fab - I'm running an early version of P3's Froyo (2.3.9). Any issues that you know of with the zip when coming from an older release?

    There shouldn't be any issues. The .zip is a full install, so just wipe system and it should be replaced with the newer Froyo (2.3.15)

    Seems to be running real quick and smooth so far. Only bug I've found is the known bug with the status bar. Great job! Scripts work just fine also, BTW.

    Funny, my version of 2.3.15 doesn't even have a sysctl.conf!

    I dont understand the benefit of this over the other ROMs...

    What is the benefit/usage of scripts?
    Of Android Open Source Project similarity?

    Well, all of the ROMs out right now are essentially very similar, as they all stem from the same base and there's only so much of the underlying Blur framework that can be removed.

    That being said, this is just another alternative configuration of /system for users to try.

    For an advanced user, they can remove bloat and theme their 2.3.15 installation to match any of the ROMs out anyways, this is basically just a shortcut :D

    As for scripts, it just makes removing unused apps easier (and a little safer, as there's an easy way to get them right back).

    Unrelated, but I'm still trying to think up a name. Suggestions?
