I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS TO YOUR PHONE!

You must be rooted!


This is a guide on manually deodexing, you phone. (Duh!)

The reason I am making this tutorial is because I could not get my theme to work with Teenfaces deodexed nandroid. You may want to follows this if you have the same problem as me, or if you just want to take a shot at doing it.

What you'll need:
A Windows based machine
xUltimate v2.2
Patience

Process:

1. Unzip xUltimate v2.2, and launch "Main.exe"
2. If everything goes well xUlt should recognize the phone and make a connection. You now should see a list of options.
3. Run option 1. After option 1 is done, run option 2.
4. Now these well take a while. Run option 3.
5. IMPORTANT: After you have run option 3, you MUST navigate to the xUltimate folder and find "origi_frame" folder, and delete "guava.odex". It's a bad file, and interferes with deodexing process.
6. Now run option 4, and wait.
7. Exit xUltimate, and put the phone in USB mass storage.
8. Go back into the xUltimate folder and copy "done_frame", and "done_app", and move them to the root of the sdcard.
9. Put the phone in PC mode
10. Open a command prompt, and do the following:

Code:
adb shell
su
stop
mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
rm /system/app/*.odex
rm /system/framework/*.odex
mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
reboot

Your phone should now be deodexed!

You may notice an increase in speed, and you now have the ability to edit certain files with greater effects. (i.e. services.jar)

Credits:
Rainabba and Mike919: For initially working with me to get a white clock, and later deodex.
toxman: For testing, and being a huge risk taker.
teenfaces: For letting me use his services.jar
And especially Xeudoxus: For letting me a guinea pig, for xUltimate, and answering my questions. And also for the making the xUltimate tool. It defiantly makes thing easier.

I got to step 4 (which is pressing 3 to start deodexing) and I got this message on the third element:

My DInc. is rooted and running 2.2: 3.21.605.1
Do I need to be in recovery with system mounted to make this work?
Does this only work on the Droid X?

Lol, sorry to be rude. But this is in teh Droid X section. I'm sure the Dinc has some way of being deodexed.

When I ran "mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system" at the end of the process I got "Device or Resource Busy", is that ok or am I going to have trouble?

I had this as well. All that part does is re-mount the system partition as RO (Read Only). This is done when you reboot as well. So if you rebooted at the end of the process, it was taken care of.

    So when you run the test and everything passes except odex, does that mean the deodex worked? it seems like nothing would be left odexed because you deodexed it. does that sound right. I know this was mentioned through the thread but was never fully answered.

    How do you know for sure if it worked or not?

    Thanks, Hell

    Many thanks to all involved to make this possible.http://media.xda-developers.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

    I wanted to say I used this on the fascinate gingerbread leak.
    Here is what I had to change to get it to work properly.

    step 5 does not apply to (or at least not on the leak).

    In adb shell I had to change
    Code:
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    to
    mount -t rfs -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl9 /system

    Also I had a problem of
    cp: write error: No space left on device

    to solve this problem I simply ran the
    Code:
    rm /system/app/*.odex
    rm /system/framework/*.odex
    before the
    Code:
    cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
    cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
    and that solved all my problems.

    My first attempt at this and it went great.
    I hope this information will help others.

    NOOB QUESTION : Will deleting all the .odex files from system/app counted as deodexing ?? :angel:
