Yeah, saw your post in the other thread. Hopefully someone else might have a clue (maybe DJ himself?).

I tried this on Wicked's JB V.7 ROM and it didn't work. I launched the app and it reboots the phone, but nothing happens after. Maybe the Kernel. I'm using Wicked's new kernel.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

The System/app folder is full of .odex files!
Rom is here:

Question: If I upgrade a system app like Gmail or Maps, do I need to re-odex?

Thanks,

S3 on tmobile... Can't tell really if there is any improvement only caveat is that I flashed frosty rom and then did the ODEX so not sure if this made any difference. I guess I should have flashed rom and then played with it for a few days and then tried ODEXing it ... however I can confirm atleast my phone is not hosed =}

Confirmed working on Darthstalker S3 Edition Version X with XOne V2 kernel.

Tip: Patience pays. If the screen goes blank after the initial reboot for more than 5 minutes, don't fret. It WILL reboot the second time and you'll be greeted with the "Android Upgrading" message.

Hope this helps for whoever is on the Darthstalker Rom!

Cheers. Hit Thanks if i helped

Thank you, I'm glad someone finally brought this topic up. I have no idea why everyone uses deodexed roms. Odexed roms will offer you better performance and battery life. There are only two advantages to deodexed roms which most of you will not utilize anyway. The obvious being the reduction in rom size. However, no matter the size, as long as it is able to flash to your phone, it will perform the same regardless. The second purpose to use a deodexed rom is to perform easier app modifications. Lets bee honest though, the average user will never have to worry about that. Overall, if you have no intentions to modify your apps, go with an odexed rom. Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find one on these forums aside from a stock rom. Hmmm...maybe I'll whip something up for fun.
