Go check twitter now, it's there
Great battery life! I would have been at or under 50% in about 6 hrs on mini with the same use.
Tried to upload a screen shot of 9.5 hrs off charger with steady use and at 50% of battery.
I may have to flash this. Apex was always my favorite. And a HDMI solution would probably seal the deal.
On the other hand, my rooted stock is running so well right now. Choices, choices.
This is fine apex version. Recommend it highly.
Whenever I move to a different rom, I always try apex again and wonder why I left. Great job again Fab!
So did HDMI work???
Welp.... I realized after I had said all that. ... I've never used HDMI to begin with! I'm not even set up to be able to test it! Steven sits down now.
Ayye, Im trying to install the Blurr home but the terminal e command is not working for me. I get passed su but once I enter the launcher2.Baker command it doesn't recognize .
maybe someone can give me a detailed step by step command entry instructions. *I'm a terminal emulator newb*
Im w/ u Stevo. How do u use it and what can it be used for? Have I been missing out on a fantastic Dx feature?!?!?!
I use root explorer to change the name of the launcher and install the launcher 2 and reboot.
So can anyone tell me how to add extra apps on the home screen.
I changed the hot keys from 2 to 4, however I am not able to add any apps when I click on the plus sign. It states that "application not installed on your phone."
Mine works with 4, are you dragging from app drawer? I think he mentioned you cant move the dialer.
I am not able to drag anything there. Only the trash icon comes up as to delete something.
I haven't tried to move the dialer or anything like that.
Update: nevermind, I figured it out. Kind of dumb as you have to hold down the plus sign for the options to come up. I was just tapping it and releasing it, thus was getting the message.
Okay I am ready to install APEX and I have a really noob question in the instructions you say flash APEX, how do I flash APEX to my phone?
Well tell us what you are currently running so we can tell you how
I am currently running apex rc1 on .596
kernel 22.214.171.124-g34b306d qgd748@il93lnxdroid09 #1
What is the most efficient way to upgrade to the current version of apex?
I love your software fab! thanks for all your hard work!
I am currently running rooted droid x on stock GB .605
bmvq37@zin22Inxdroid28 #1 (I know this will get updated with apex 2.0)
My question is really basic and I feel kind of stupid asking it but I want to make sure I don't mess up, but in the instructions FAB says flash APEX to the phone. How exactly do I flash something to my phone, or what is meant by "flash APEX". Thanks everyone for your help and time
you flash using droid 2 bootstrapper
put the apex.zip on your phone, boot to droid 2 bootstrapper, install from zip, go find the Apex zip and install
also dont forget to wipe data/cache/dalvik before doing so
In Fabs notes he stats above. I am coming from rooted stock GB.602 should I wipe cache and dalvik. I have already wiped data.
If you have already wiped data just wipe all of it.
Found a bit of a bug.
When using Launcher2, I've had one random reboot and my battery died once. Both times, it went back to the stock launcher and had to reinstall launcher2.
Other than that, this is perfect. I'll take Apex over any 2nd init any day!
I'm running RC4 with a couple of issues.
1. Major lag on the lock screen. The slider will go over and then stop, sometimes taking 10-15 seconds until it actually unlocks. This happens with Widget Locker as well as the "stock" lock screen. Sometimes it freezes completely and I have to pull the battery.
2. Random reboots while on the home screen or facebook app.
Any thoughts/easy fix for this? I'm new to ROMs and root.
Is there a current version of the Revolution theme that works with RC4?
Hmmm i have not had the lag on lockscreen, was it right after boot?
