    No. They announced that they try to never release full SBF files.

    Who cares, though? If you can use the .320 full SBF, it's practically no extra time to toss the .340 system SBF on there.

    Have we come to the end of the line for ApeX on the Droid X? We have not had any updates or post from Fab in a while now... He is probably scouting out his next phone at CES

    I think its a little much to expect an update out every couple weeks. 1.3.1 runs really well. There really isn't alot that could be added to it. Maybe an updated version thats a blurless alternative, but I don't expect that because fab has said he made a conscience effort to make his rom a pretty even mix of speed and functionality.

    I just tried installing this ROM and keep getting an error saying the zip file is bad and the installation was aborted. Luckily I have a backup. Anyone know how to fix this? thanks

    Ok do I just restore the stock_ota, then wipe, then Apex?
    OR
    Do I wipe, then restore stock_ota, then Apex?

    I want to do this correctly this time so I just want to understand how to do it right.

    Just got done creating a custom set of stock icons for use with Apex 1.3.1 and ADW 1.3.6. Can't say enough about how much better this rom is then the stock moto image.

    Has anyone modified their services.jar file with the Throttling Modification? I'd like to know if people have been successful in using it.

    Also, could it be added to the ROM so people don't have to manually install it? While it won't help everyone (because not everyone is in a geographic area that Verizon utilizes throttling), it seems like a good idea to at least give people the choice of adding it if they want. Perhaps another options script could be added.

    Thanks!

    End of the line? It's been 3 weeks and in the middle of that time was the holiday season...

    Seems a little hasty to assume the ROM is dead.

    Has anyone had any problems recovering their contacts? (This is the first time this ROM has been on my phone so I cleared data and cache) I've reinstalled this ROM like 3 times and I seem to get weird little glitches each time. It wouldn't sync with backup assistant last time I tried it so I'm going to try again. Just to be clear I'm doing it right.....restore, then format data, then format cache, then install ROM. Correct?

    Sorry I'm a noob. Thanks for the help though.

    Question - Can anyone tell me where the backups are located, the ones made with the bootstrap application? I've made so many backups and just want to delete the ones I no longer need.

    Thx

    You may be right... I am probably being too hasty...Fab would not abandon the DX...at least not until he gets his Thunderbolt or some yet to be announced dual core phone :D

    Ok, I restored my Stock_OTA rom last night and let my battery charge all night. This morning, I wiped data and cache and re-installed Apex according to all the directions at http://wiki.fabdroid.com/index.php?title=Installation

    One thing I noticed is that there were still several of the preloaded apps such as DLNA, FM Radio, Madden NFL 11, NFS Shift, etc. Are those still supposed to be there? I was sort of under the impression the Apex got rid of all the bogus apps?

    Another issue that I have a question about is that it took maybe an hour to do the reinstall, setup and reinstall my apps from the Market. My battery at that point was down to about 80%. It has now been about 4 hours of intermittent/normal use and I am down to about 40%. I am wondering if I need to do more to get the same battery life as others have mentioned?
