Sorry I kept you guys up so late :-(

I ran into some unexpected problems, though I got them straightened out.

I don't expect errors with the system apps, to be honest, but I think there may be ways to break the error checking in my toolbox script and cause it to do bad things. If you find any of those situations, please let me know so I can patch them up. Then, when I have an update to the toolbox, you can just use the updatetb script to update it (and I don't have to release a whole new ROM version to fix it!)

Also, here's the changelog:
------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.4.0 Changelog

-Apex Toolbox:
Launch this by typing the following into terminal emulator:
su
apextoolbox

-Cleaned up scripts (since 90% were consolidated into the toolbox)
The following remain
overclock
sys
updatetb (to update the toolbox)

-New boot animation - ty tntdroid!
-New default background
-New default notification/ringtone
-Fixed GB Keyboard (Same height as MT keyboard)- ty kejar31
-Removed data throttling
-Updated all core apps (ADW, Gmail, Market, Search)
-Blacked out Google Talk app - ty kejar31
-Fixed Mms.apk with 2.3.2 routing fixes (no longer can accidentally send to wrong person!)
-MusicMod back by default (supports lock screen controls) - ty kejar31
-Startup script bug fixed (no more system FC)
-Updated Jrummy overclock script - ty JRummy16
-Option to install leaked Motorola Connected player in toolbox
-A whole bunch of new features in the toolbox

...and probably some more stuff I left out. It's early morning!



For my testers:

-Please test the toolbox. If you find errors, please tell me the steps you took to create them.
-Run the system through its paces, report any FC's and such
-Try installing over 1.3.1 and a clean install. Report successes/failures.
-Enjoy!


Thanks!

-Fab

Been up and running for a few hours now. SBF'd and did a clean install, only encountered one system fc when I used the script to remove the clock from the notification bar, it happened on the reboot but another reboot took care of it with no more issues. Loving the update, keep up the good work.

Hey guys, I fixed wireless tethering. Please remove it using the toolbox, and then reinstall from the toolbox.

You may have to also go into settings, applications, manage, all, scroll down to wireless tether, and clear its data.

Also, I will shortly be releasing a RC2 file with this fix, and updated dialer, Vvm preinstalled, and a few other minor tweaks. Hopefully that version is ready for the primetime :)

Thanks but I was hoping for a shot of rom not toolbar scripts...

Its all the same mostly. Same default theme. Just added some nice new things. Just removed data throttle and clock in notification bar. Tweeks like that are new. If you ran apex before like 1.3.1 it looks the same.
