ApeX 2.0 for Droid X Gingerbread (.596 OTA) has finally reached the Release Candidate landmark! While this new build is completely blurless and 100% AOSP unlike previous versions, the same philosophy remains. Build a fast, clean, reliable ROM that is enjoyable to use, and customizeable.
You must be on .596 rooted or a .596 based ROM
Kernel must be 184.108.40.206-g34b306d
Baseband must be BP_C_01.09.12P
As always, you must take responsibility for what you do to your own phone.
I have created this ROM and tested it to the best of my ability.
The instructions are written to make sure that users have success installing and using the ROM.
However, if anything goes wrong and your phone is damaged or rendered useless, I do not take any responsibility.
I would like to especially thank kejar31 for teaching me his secret sauce technique for compiling AOSP apps for the Blur Framework. I'd like to thank jrummy16 and drod2169 for helping me on Gtalk and troubleshooting some issues, and _Mycahya_ and Mobile_Sensei for helping me fix some of the theming! Also, I'd like to thank Dr. Carpenter for making the new boot logo.
Of course, credits to P3Droid, Team Black Hat, MyDroidWorld for the Gingerbread leaks, the CyanogenMod team for many of the apps, Google for many more apps, Motorola, and all the nice brave people on Twitter for testing this for me, helping me squash bugs, and submitting beautiful wallpapers!
If I left anyone out, please let me know so I can properly credit you!
I have made some flashable .zip files for common Blur apps that people want to restore. Check the following link first to see if I made one for the app you want. If not, then follow the steps below to manually restore Blur. Flashable .zip files .
1. Game plan -- figure out which .apks you need to restore to get the functionality you want. I won't be providing much support in this regard.
2. Download the removed apps archive . This is NOT a flashable .zip file.
3. Extract the removed apps archive and cherry pick the .apks you wish to restore. Copy them onto your sdcard.
4. Run the following commands in Terminal Emulator to restore apps:
cp /sdcard/APKNAME.apk /system/app
chmod 755 /system/app/APKNAME.apk
5. Repeat the bottom two lines for all remaining .apks to restore

Reason: Restore Blur instructions.
Thanks Fab, so good to say goodbye to that monster gingerblur and load this aosp rom at 1/2 GBlurs size. What a fast clean aosp rom, way better than stock. No blur or vzw=serenity. I am no longer interested in a new phone lol! Thanks bro....
Installed and running great.. glad to be back on an AOSP rom - I really like fission - now this has taken its place! Only thing I would like to see is a reboot option from the shutdown screen. Other than that.. working great!
