First Deodexed DROID Bionic ROM Released

Here we go, DROID Bionic owners.  The first “deodexed” ROM is now available for you to fondle with care. Brought to you by Mr. Kejar31, this would be a great starting point for anyone looking to theme or starting hacking on this latest edition of Blur.  He hasn’t made any other real tweaks to it from what we can tell other than deodexing, so if you were hoping for massive changes, you will have to give the community a little extra time to start tweaking things.  

Download:  DeodexBionic.zip | Debloated version:  DeodexDebloatedBionic.zip


1.  Obviously you have to be rooted.
2.  Then download the file from above and drop on your SD card.
3.  Bootstrap and then reboot into recovery.
4.  Once there, make a full backup.
5.  Then “install zip from sd card” and choose the file that you downloaded above.
6.  When it finishes and reboots, you will need to bootstrap again to get CWM recovery back.
7.  Enjoy!

Full support can be found at this RootzWiki thread.

Update:  As our dear friend Koveleski pointed out in the comments, this is essentially the beginning of Jrummy and Kejar’s Liberty ROM for the Bionic.  Good times ahead.

Cheers Mike!

  • I as well as my guys came examining the excellent pointers located on your web blog and then before long got an awful feeling I never expressed respect to the website owner for those secrets. The guys came consequently warmed to see them and already have actually been using those things. Appreciation for really being simply thoughtful as well as for getting certain incredibly good useful guides most people are really desperate to discover. My honest apologies for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.

    Good Bionic Deal!

    I bought a Bionic last night. $199.00 at Radio Shack. Got a 30 dollar bluetooth headset with it for free. I will bring back the headset and get $30.00 credit.

  • I definitely wanted to write a quick comment in order to thank you for all the precious pointers you are placing on this site. My extended internet lookup has at the end of the day been compensated with high-quality suggestions to write about with my good friends. I ‘d assert that many of us readers are extremely lucky to live in a very good community with very many special people with interesting solutions. I feel rather lucky to have come across the website page and look forward to tons of more fun moments reading here. Thank you once more for a lot of things.

    sorry for being a noob, but what does it mean by  “you will need to bootstrap again to get CWM recovery back”.?

    • Groid

      After flashing the rom you will still have root, but you will need to install the bootstrap.apk again to get the Clockworkmod recovery back.

  • Pretty fast development on the bionic. Still will wait for the prime. Couldn’t stand the screen. Plus a unlocked bootloader on the prime will be nice. Kernels make a big difference to the performance of phones and thats something the bionic can’t do.

    • Have you tried the Bionic out?  I really don’t feel like I need to make any tweaks to it right now.  Maybe that’s b/c I’m coming from the OG but the Bionic has been running silky smooth for me.  As far as the screen I guess it’s to each their own.  It’s not a Samsung screen but it works just fine for me.

      • Pennywise

        Bionic is faaaaast. Doesn’t need a bigger proc. Doesn’t need to be OC’d. Will probably run everything for at least the next year w/o issues.

        Definitely not a samsung screen (thank god), I love the screen on the Bionic.  I am genuinely surprised every time I go to use it and I can actually see the screen (outside).

        • Yea forgot to mention how great it works outside

  • babadush

    I remember when the mere word Bionic would get 200 comments. oh those were the days

    • Matthew Morrison

      u mean the days ppl were sick and tired of hearing about a phone that should have been relaeased months ago or how a) its gonna suck b) moto is awful c) vigor will b better ….then…yes… those were the days!

      • hatehatehatehatehatehatehatehatehate, whatsa matter? used your upgrade too soon?

  • Charp86

    lol everytime something is released for bionic ppl feel D3 is being left behind…look @ it like this: D3 took 2 months focusing on root whereas bionic enjoyed that work & started w/ root. So its clear things will happen quicker for the bionic in 1st couple of weeks after release

    The only big diff i see is that more ppl have the bionic, so yea its more of a focus point.  the phones arent THAT diff spec-wise so what one gets, then the other likely will as well, just difference in time of release

    i have a D3 & havent felt left behind, im just sayin…

      Here’s hoping that the love comes to the D3 sooner or later.  Are you sure more ppl have D3 than Bionic, though?  Seems unlikely this early in the Bionic’s career.

    At least there is a way around that pesky bootloader, too bad Moto can’t just let us do things the easy way… Still waiting though…

  • I had to bring back my Bionic. I just can’t see me passing up the Prime for this phone. Even tho Motorola does have some very very nice hardware………. sigh

  • Trooper

    Nice work. I considered getting a bionic when I heard they were teaming up again. But… will wait for the prime.

    droid 3 is being forgotten.. T.T

    • Anonymous

      Unfortunately the Droid 3 is not the phone everyone was waiting for since CES.  I am sad to see Team Liberty focusing on Droid Bionic now.  I hope they don’t leave the Droid X all together.  Considering the long absence from the X and the novelty of the new Bionic I doubt they will focus on the X.

      • Adam Elghor

        reminds me a lot of the whole dx and d2 dev community
        basically same phone with diff shape but dx always had more roms, tweaks, hacks,etc
        still love my d2 but i think ill drop it off for a nexus in a couple months ;D

        • Anonymous

          i agree the devs were all over the droid x when it came out

    • pcriz

      The behind the scenes on the D3 and the Bionic arent all that different. Keep hope alive

    • Well the good news is… My GF has a D3.. The bad news is.. She doesn’t like to have it messed with 😛

      But really she loves her D3

  • Carlito Pr787

    im rooted i got to the bootstrap app and everything but i have no idea what the hell to do lol ill just wait for someone to post a video on youtube 🙂

    • babadush

      if i remember correctly turn off the phone, press and hold power and volume up and it boots into the bootloader. Then from there you can go into recovery. Don’t take my word for it my friend has a bionic not me. 

  • could of posted the deodexed debloaded 😛
