    This is the deodexer zip brought to you by bouchigo.... He get's all the credit for this so make sure you scroll down and thank a brotha. I am just the messenger....

    Apply through bootstrap and mount system as a precaution... Also expect a 3-5 minute wait on startup..

    I've been trying, but it's giving me errors......maybe jonathan can do it :D

    I'll keep trying though........It might require someone with a bit more adb experience :D:D:D

    If I load up the rooted GB that has the recovery working in it, and then it gets deodexed, am I going to have to reflash and start over again? Or is the deodexing just for themes/ROMS and it will deodex and flash ROM/theme at the same time. I can't remember.

    I assume the devs are going to be furiously scurrying to produce roms/themes and will do it for us, no?

    Maybe, but I don't feel like trying it :D I don't believe it will work though, if it did, I don't think P3Droid would have called for someone to deodex it and shoot him a link.

    Maybe you can test it out for us......lol

    At this point it would be just for themes, as I'm sure the ROM devs would have pre-deodexed ROMs when released.

    thanks guys, thats what I thought. I'm thinking I'll flash the rooted GB when I get home, and by the time I'm done putting it through its paces, stock, someone will have a ROM up to try.
    I know it's a bit off topic, but does anyone know if Fab is gonna put down his new Nexus to throw us one last farewell Apex based off this? I def send him a nice donation for that!

    I keep getting an error. I can pull the system apps and framework apps, but when I go to deodex, I get an error, I think xUltimate needs to be updated due to opcode changes (might need modified smali.jar and baksmali.jar).

    Error:

    Yeah im not sure xultimate will work as it stands. He mentioned something on the op for xultimate that it was updated for froyo so I would assume it needs to be updated for gb

    Ok so a little update on what I've been doing. .
    I doedexed the ROM using a rom kitchen for HTC phones. But I figured these files and what I need to do would be pretty generic for android phones in general. So I did all that and I booted up very nicely. Started checking everything out and I'm like wow... did I actually do this? I had to go check and sure enough all apps in /system/app read apk. no odex files anymore. Everything is going well until I try to access the settings menu.... apparently it did all of them successfully but settings.odex. I tried messing with it for a while but I just dunno. I submitted an issue ...Give it a look if you want. Any feedback is appreciated. Issue 61 - smali - Cannot Deodex Settings.odex - An assembler/disassembler for Android's dex format - Google Project Hosting

    Try running this command:
    java -jar baksmali.jar -c Settings.odex instead of
    java -jar baksmali.jar -x Settings.odex.

    EDIT:
    It seems like JF has replied to your trouble ticket; a pretty lengthy and involved response at that.

    What HTC kitchen are you using? A link perhaps? :D

    the -c option is used to specify specific boot class paths. so the syntax to use it would be
    java -jar baksmali.jar -c :specifiedjar.jar -x Settings.odex

    By the way, xeudoxus has just updated xUltimate to v2.2.3 and says it should work with Gingerbread.....seems like it just got a lot simpler if indeed it does work :D:D:D


    EDIT:
    It's working so far :D:D:D

    I'm xUltimating as we type :p;) going good so far :D

    He had previously said he was going to be updating it pretty soon, so I wasn't in a hurry to try too many other things..........they take up too much time.......lol
