    Now using my OWN base! Based off of 2.3.15, deodexed the ota myself and packaged together!
    Build.Prop tweaks (thanks to Beesley)
    Market fix to see all apps
    System fully deodexed
    All apps optimized/zipaligned (Credit to me)

    Bloatware removed (Credit to me)
    Over 125 MB free in system!

    Bug fixes from Focused 0.3, Calendar working perfectly!
    AMAZING Boot animation from WJD Designs! Thanks!
    Few more things that I'd like to keep secret for the time being

    This rom is VERY speedy, stable, and loveable, it'll make you want to laugh in Moto's face for the locked bootloader.

    http://ninebysix.com/boostdscoob/Rub...Focused0.5.zip

    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:
    Open DroidXBootstrapper
    Bootstrap Recovery
    Reboot Recovery
    Nandroid Backup (Just in case you don't want to keep my rom or something goes wrong)
    Mounts and Storage
    Format System
    Format Data
    Format Cache
    ****Mount System**** VERY IMPORTANT, DO NOT FORGET THIS STEP OR YOU WILL BE BRICKED
    Install Zip From SDCard
    Select rubiXFocused0.5.zip
    Select Yes
    Reboot System
    Enjoy

    The first boot will take a while, so be patient with it loading.

    edit: replace swype with the swype apk from the previous release. I forgot to patch that in

    edit2:
    Heres a patch.. mount system before installing, DO NOT format anything. it's just a patch

    Do we need to format data, system, and cache if we're on your original RubiX release? or is it just a good idea?

    And as far as a changelog goes, is it pretty much the same except with the new base and a few more AOSP items?

    The first was solid so I know this one will be good too!

    seems not.. but if it was me, i would. just start from scratch
    Only system is necessary if running the previous focused release, cache is recommended, but if any problems occur, wipe data as well

    Man, this is fast! I just updated to 2.3.15 via tbh, then applied this over top and it rips. Black status bar after that. All in all, I'm pleased - it is fast and stable. There's only one problem and it is a big one:

    Google calendar doesn't work or sync. For me, that is huge. I'm a professional musician and my life is my calendar, sometimes doing up to three gigs a day.

    The dev posted a fix on page seven of another forum, but it did not work. This seems to be a common problem, too.

    Rom is killer otherwise, though. Fix that calendar ASAP and you've got perfection...and a donation :-)

    Steve....did you put 2.3.15 from TBH over flyX? did you just download right on top of it ? if so did you run into any problems? And what are you seeing as different from the 2.3.9 that you download from the ROM Manager site? and is the rubix focused 0.5 better than fly x ?

    I'll try to be as specific as I can here - I started yesterday with Froyo 2.3.9, FlyX on top, black status bar, black gallery mod from WSJ Designs (been down with them since bb days). All done via ROM Manager. I tried to install 2.3.15 via Rom manager and it didn't take.

    To start, I downloaded the TBH 2.3.15, went into root exporter, changed file name to update.zip, moved to root of sd. Flash Clockwork Mod in rom manager, open bootstrapper, tap bootstrap recover, reboot into recovery. Go in mounts and storage, format system, format cache, mount system. Back out, click apply sd/update.zip. Wait for install to complete, select reboot. Bang - Droid X eye reboot was back. Took a few minutes, but it was fine. Checked about phone and there it was as the correct version. I moved the update.zipv file to clockwork backups in root explorer and renamed it froyo 2.3.15.

    I did the exact same thing with Rubix and has no problems. I didn't even wipe the data. Just downloaded from this thread and did exactly what I did above with the Rubix file. It booted right up.

    Don't get me wrong - flyx was awesome, but I never really knew what it did other than Make the phone a little snappier, remove most of the bloat. I also had this annoying problem throughout my use of it where upon reboot, lp would fc every single time without exception, then boot fine. Don't know if was something I did or a flyx issue, but it is gone now. Rubix is noticeably faster, wiped our blur almost entirely (which might explain my calendar issues), added wireless tether (though I already had barnacle), comes with adw pre- installed, and has a ton of new options under the spare parts section. I had a great experience with flyx, but it was just time to change things up and be up to date on my froyo. Calendar aside, Rubix is a ridiculously great rom. Plus, the boot animation is killer.

    I can't seem to find the download file for RubiX so I can rename it to update.zip,even using root explorer. Do I need to wipe data and cache to load this ROM? currently running flyX but I'm looking for the next best thing. Can I load this ROM on top of flyX?
    Correction:found the download link after looking for it. Still curious to know if I can install this ROM over flyX

    Ouch - Maybe download was incomplete? Not sure what might have happened. I however, am in the same situation. I went to try and apply ZapX over this and made the mistake of trying to do so via ROM Manager - I"m in the M Screen Loop. I'll post a thread for help...

    I was prior: 2.2 OTA, rooted.

    I used ROM Manager to find it, DL'd, and did the 'wipe cache' when it popped up during install. Simple easy for for me using ROM Manager.

    Now I need to figure out how to get the galaxy X theme running

    i cant explain how crazy my day was yesterday. Sat night (after my gators lost) I tried messing with my phone some. I started out the day with Leaked 2.2(2.3.9) , flyx , gala x 1.6 , blackmodz, beesleys build props , rooted of course.
    I tried to upgrade to the 2.3.15 leaked from TBH . Phone got locked in the M logo. Tried everything i knew how to do . Ended up taking the phone to verizon sunday afternoon . They put it on their machine to flash it back to 2.1 . Remember i was on leaked so that was totally ok to try . Well guy said "I cant get it off the bootloader screen" . I took phone home to try to fix it myself.
    I noticed that my bootloader version was 30.03. so i thought i need to flash 2.2 system file from TBH . I got some errors after that so i read up on alldroid forums . Someone said to try the 2.1 sbf . I thought what the hell , i will have a new phone tuesday .
    BINGO!! I got the droid eye(AND HOW PRETTY IT WAS ) after not seeing it for 18 hours. Phone booted up , i cleared the cache , i did factory restore , and my droid x was running 2.1 update 1 .
    So since i had the 2.2 sbf(from TBH ) and rsd 4.8 i figured lets go ahead and put official 2.2 (i think the sbf will get me back to 2.3.13) All i want to do is theme , for black bar , maybe fly x again.
    So now i am rooted (Silentkilll thank you ) with 1 click root , and about to deodex so i can get the blackbar. I do believe you have to be deodexed to get the black bar.But crazy , crazy day.

    **UPDATE**
    Over an hour and nothing stuck on RubiX. I went ahead and pulled the battery and still stuck on RubiX. Dang it I like .3 and was hoping .5 would be equally as good. I guess I will need to start from scratch AGAIN. Any ideas?

    How long should the first boot last? I am going on 30 minutes. Any ideas?

    did you create a nandroid back up? did you use ROM manager to try rubix? if so did you create a backup?

    Appears the problem is my battery died during the process. Ugh!

    Heading to VZW to get it charged and then back to use RSDLite to install the original sbf file. This sucks.

    Lesson to all make sure your battery is charged. Triple check it even if you think you had charged it over night.
