Having read bigxie's twitter feed and seen the back and forth between you two, I am convinced that you most definitely did not build this rom from scratch.

Any developer who knows how to build from source knows how to use baksmali/smali.

The funny part is, if you legitimately made your own tweaks to Apex, and just gave credit to where it was due, instead of getting defensive and lying about it, I'm sure there would be no problem here.

Come on now, if you were such a "big man", you'd own up and just admit that you used Apex as the base, ripped out the identifying elements such as build.prop, my Protips and Wallpaper apps and put in some junk like D2X wallpapers and Fancy widget.

If you were capable of compiling source apps for the DX, you really think you'd be asking me how to change the build prop to modify the BUILD NUMBER? Or how to disassembled a DEX file?



And I've attached a binary comparison of the /system folders of Apex and Detox. Anybody can reproduce this report using Beyond Compare 3 and his file vs. Apex 2.0 RC2. Here are the only differences (left is Apex, right is Detox)

Absolutely correct, my friend.

Along with the other evidence, we can tell that the framework is from Apex, too. The grey title bars above each app is the same one that _Mycahya_ used (made on his own).

I think at this point giving credit isn't going to help you at all.

best case scenario: delete this thread. you will never regain your credibility back.

suggestion: create another account and start fresh. just don't make the obviously stupid mistake twice.

how can i get sued for this...Apex is a free ROM its not sold out to people and even if it was I didn't sign **** telling me that Fabulous owns all rights to it and its can't be edited and reposted. So no I can't be sued. My dads a lawyer. Im not a dumbass.
