I've seen so many developers say "deodexed" or something like that. What exactly does that mean?
In simple terms it's sort of like decompiling an Android application so you can take it apart and change things about it. There is a more complicated explanation involving the Dalvik Java runtime machine and how dex files are optimized but that seems unnecessary.
Ok so when i see a developers that says he/she "deodexed" FRF72, could that possibly mean that he did it so it can be put on the Droid?
If someone were porting it to the Droid, that would be part of the process.
Oh ok. Gotcha.

While the CyanogenMod Wiki doesn't have a definition for "deodexed," it does include a lot of other terminology if you're curious. (For me, I was never sure what 'zipaligned' meant.)

I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting this. It turned up on a Google search when I was wondering what 'deodexed' meant - these definitions are just as valuable to me!
In return, thank you for 1) using the Thanks button! 2) Being an obviously kewl individual with a very very big gun lol
Thanx, but that's just my squirrel gun - shoots a bullet a little bit bigger than a .22. My SKS is better
Don't know much about guns, but I know that .22s are not all that large lol. But you've got a scope on it - those squirrels must be feisty!
Bump for the info after a search turned it up.

doing exactly this 9 months later..
thnx for the link
Ok so why would a published rom be de-odexed and another be not deodexed? is that so develoopers can dl the deodexed and play with it? Or does that mean the non-deodexed is 'baked in' with kernal etc?
