The odexed version will be slightly quicker but can not be themed, the deodexed version can be themed and you can switch if you install the other version.

How would switch to the deodexed version? Do I need to flash deodexed zip through safestrap in the stock slot? Factory Reset?

Yes. Go into safestrap, factory reset and then install deodex.zip on stock ROM slot

From what I've read - performance between the two shouldn't matter - after the initial login. Odex should be faster but I ran Odex for awhile (4.4.2) and didn't notice any difference between that and after getting Baja 4.4.2 (deodex). Battery life is a lot better for me on Baja 4.4.2 (deodex) than it ever was on Odex 4.4.2.... but that's comparing apples to oranges I think as Baja might have rom optimizations that weren't in the stock Odex 4.4.2.

If you theme at ALL - Deodex is a must. (I never theme but I've been really happy with Baja 4.4.2 so I'm changing my mind on that...).
