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.
