Is it possible to deodex the factory rom (4.0.2) that is on my phone? Can it be done and if so is it possible to do it while it's on the phone or can I dump what is on the phone and deodex it and then load it back onto the phone?

I do not want to build from source and deodex that. I have built 4.0.3 from source but I 'm not interested in running that right now. I'll add that i'm familiar with decompiling apk's and have used smali and baksmali a little, so i'm not completely green on the subject.

@runandhide, Thanks but I'm wanting to learn how to do it myself :)

@Mike, thanks dude. I found that shortly after posting and worked my way through it.

Now I have to figure out how to bundle it all up into an update.zip and hope that I didn't make any mistakes.

Aww man... did you have a problem deodexing or getting what you deodexed to flash/work? I've got all the framework and system apps deodexed. I'm going to use the info in this (http://www.londatiga.net/it/how-to-create-android-update-zip-package/) and the template posted in the deodexing link above and see if I can get it flashed via cw recovery.

I may not get around to it tonight but I will post back with my results.

Wow so no more amend support (update-script). Now you got to use edify... good thing I didn't need this done in a hurry


*edit*
If anyone in the future should need help deodexing 4.0.2 just pm me and we can put it up somewhere for everyone to see. The process should be the same for every version in the future as well (I think) if future stock roms are odexed.
