    Special Big thanks to Rainabba from Alldroid for helping me with this! He will be making something very big very possible very soon that will be incorporated into this rom the second I get it

    in terminal emulator, and follow instructions from there.

    Auto boot strap on every FULL boot of the system. This is beta, and will be tweaked within the next few days as I adjust and fix

    Install Instructions:
    Download rubiXFocused1.6.zip
    Move to root of SD Card
    Reboot to Clockwork Recovery
    Wipe Data/Cache
    Install Zip From SD Card
    Select rubiXFocused1.6.zip

    Please note, this has ZERO blur, except for settings, which isn't even blurry. Please do not ask me to add back in blur features, that's not the point of this rom, nor can I support ANY blur features that are not already in here.

    There WILL be hot patches within the next couple of days for features I want to add but haven't gotten around to it.

    I'm working on a fix for 3G HotSpot App still, please do not ask about this, I'll let you guys know when I get it to work

    Until I get 3g hotspot fixed, try this:
    wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre11.apk - android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users 2.0.5-pre11 *** EXPERIMENTAL *** - Project Hosting on Google Code
    it supports AP mode and everything people complained about not having in the market version


    If you like my work, please consider clicking me to send me some red bulls

    I'm surprised that I missed this release. Been running rubix 1.0 for 2 weeks and love it. Trying this baby right now. Good thing I'm off tomorrow.

    Been running since Saturday with only 1 reboot, By far the most stable Rom I've run. It's also very fast and very clean. Highly recommended.

    I love this ROM! Ive been testing out Fission and this one is the best one in my opinion this one and APEX are my 2 favorite.

    I like it too, however I do miss some of useful Blur stuff. The interesting thing on other ROMs you can install blur apks through TE or with Root Explorer, but not on this one. So, if you like multitouch keyboard or BlurAlarm, or hacked 3G HotSpot.... not going to happened, unless I'm missing something

    If you have the .apk file for any of the blur applications you can add them back you. You just need to use root explorer and move them from your SD card to the system/app file and then set the permissions to Read for all groups and Write for User only and then reboot your phone and you will have it again.

    I switched from ApeX to this last night and I am loving this as well so far. Have almost everything set back up and not having any issues. The only thing I miss is the keyboard that was on the ApeX rom. If anyone knows where I could get that it would be great.

    Has anyone tried Fab's clock removal mod with this ROM, I'm curious to hear if it works.

    Tried it today just to see. Google Maps worked okay, but a little slow. Not bad, though. VZ Nav wouldn't work at all and said GPS needed to be turned on, even though it was. Back to Apex for now..

    I'm going to get a little crazy and try to install the DX keyboard zip from the fission add-ons folder over this rom. Wish me luck!

    Edit: it works just fine. Just reboot into recovery then install from zip after mounting. Sorry i don't have a way to post the zip file to download if you need it.

    Thanks for tip, but that exactly what I was doing, just read read my post. None of blur apps I tried to install with Root Explorer actually worked. Multitouch keyboard-failed, blur alarm-failed, blur email-failed.

    So, did SBF... wiped data and cache.

    Rebooted, now I'm stuck @ Motorola logo screen. How do I fix this, how can I sbf again?

    gmenfan83 Well-Known Member

    sbf the same as you have already done...i have used the sbf numerous times and it always works

    Yeah, I couldn't get to it at first, since computer didn't recognize the phone via USB. Then I found you need to hold camera and volume up while powering on instead of home. Got into the bootloader fine, and SBF'd and started from scratch.

    Like this ROM a lot. Only things I miss are facebook pics integrated into contacts, and the bubble style messaging app...?
