    WARNING: The Odexed file is NOT rooted, and it’ll overwrite any custom recovery you are currently using on your device! After spending several hours trying to reflash SPRecovery and rolling back my D1 to a backup that was stored on my SD card, I wasn’t about to take a chance with the “Deodexed, rooted, and busyboxed” version.

    Ummm just bricked my phone…thx?? It keeps looping the log “droid” animation and “eye” animation what’s going on here??

  • Terry says:

    I can’t use my phone… I used deodexed version, but It keeps looping the log and the eye.
    Is there any way I can save my phone?

      Can’t you just use the SBF? SBF’s don’t come with a deodexed version… its just a stock image to restore a phone… I’m confused… if you can, join #androidchat on IRC and we can help you there.
