Normally, no problems are seen during this process of odexing, but still it is better to have a backup of all the files before starting the procedure.

Here we have a step by step guide to odex a ROM using OdexMe app.

  • This app is useless without root, so at first confirm that you device is rooted.
  • Enable Unknown sources by going to Settings > Security > and scroll down.
  • Download com.modaco.odexme.apk and install it just just like the installation of normal apps.
  • Open the app, give it root access and allow the app to run.
  • While the app is running the device reboots many times.
  • You will be welcomed with Android is upgrading, which means that the dalvik cache is being rebuilt.
  • You can confirm the completion of the process by seeing the lock screen. You can also confirm it by going to  system > app and there you will see a bunch of appnamehere.odex files.
