    Q & A

    Q: Will this rom ever include Aroma custom installer?
    A: No
    Q: Will this rom ever include a custom Updater?
    A: No
    Q: Why do you not de-bloat the rom?
    A: You are big boys and girls.. you can remove what you dont want. There is always someone that wants that crappy app that you want removed. With an odexed rom, it is easier to remove than to add.
    Q: Do you use a "script" to odex your rom?
    A: NO!
    Q: Then how do you odex it?
    A: I manually odex every file according to the bootclasspath using dexopt-wrapper, smali, baksmali, dd, and zip
    Q: What is the holy grail edit?
    A: It is a smali edit that changes the webkit highlight. I have been searching for it for a year.
    Q: Will you ever offer a deodexed version?
    A: No way
    Q: I like green and dont think its fugly.. can you put in some green?
    A: Never!.. Seriously, if you like orange and green.. Use dazednconfused Anakonda. Its very nice.

    Eradicate all green and orange TW fugliness
    Stay current on custom mods and options

    1. Nand
    2. Full Wipe!
    3. Flash Rom


    1. Nova Users go to settings/look and feel/color theme and set a nice solid blue theme color
    2. Go to developer options and set all three animation scales to 0.5x. See if checking "Force GPU rendering" gives you a better experience
    3. Open SuperSU, go to settings/theme and set theme to device default
    4. For brightness slider in your pulldown - Go to settings/Display/Display brightness slider
    5. Go to Settings/Date and Time. Set all your clock options. Center, AM/PM, day or no day.
    6. For name customization on pulldown - edit data/eri.xml with text editor. Change Odexed Blue to whatever you want
    7. Never let the market update Nova, Gmail, Gplus, YouTube, Dropbox, Hangouts, Gmusic, Play Store, Gnow, Maps, Sprint Voicemail, SuperSU. Wait for me to post a flashable update.
    8. Go to settings, applications extras/toggle settings and choose which toggles you want to use and which order you want them to show in your pulldown. There are 23 choices.
    9. Keep on eye on post 2 for any new developments
    10. Use Titanium backup to freeze/disable those apps you dont like or use. That way, if something goes awry, you can easily unfreeze/re-enable. You have more than enough space. Dont worry about freeing the space by deleting apps blindly.
    11. Download Screen Off and Lock by Katecca from the market. It has the old CRT animation shut off. Program a Nova gesture to your Screen Off and Lock and that way you dont have to use a hard button to turn off your phone.

    1. Make sure you are on LATEST version
    2. Make sure you did not dirty flash and performed a FULL wipe prior to flash
    3. Make sure you are on the ORIGINAL stock kernel included with the rom

    Closing Thread

    I am going to close this thread now as I am will be focusing on the Note III. To best stay in touch with my future work on the new device, be sure and join the Odexed Blue Hangout by PMing me your gmail address.

    I would like to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed this project and the excellent people that have helped keep it going. From my assistants, benefactors, and team members that have supported me, I send you a heartfelt thank you and God bless.

    I can say that my future projects will always stay true to my basic ideals. Remaining odexed, a good solid blue color scheme, inverted, and attention to detail. I invite you to join me on the Note III device but if you cant, I understand.

    Also, please remember that this rom does not expire. It will work on your SIII forever. Do not think that it no longer is a valid rom. You can stay odexed and Blue for as long as you own your SIII. This has been an amazing rom and I too will miss it dearly.

    Stay in touch and as always, Stay Odexed, my friends..
    I am just wondering how much interest there would be in a MAJOR odexed blue update...

    would include..
    Fully themed and inverted Calendar Widget
    Fully functional Multi Window
    Insane Clock Mod

    Just saying.. maybe
    At this point, I still have not started on MD4. I am pretty happy with MB1 as is and I am hoping that it is finished for good. I do tentatively plan on starting MD4 at some point but this is a busy time of year for me at work. I will soon have the summer off, however. I am waiting a bit to see if the prices fall on the GS4 so that is up in the air right now too. Anyways, I hope that the few of you left still enjoy my MB1. For now.. I am just going to take it easy. Thanks to everyone that continues to support this project.
