What is DraX?

DraX is the latest (and greatest) ROM for the BLU Life One X2 Series. Developed by the talented Draco with support for the original Blox2 as well as the Blox2 Mini. Designed to provide the smoothest overall performance with extended battery life, making DraX the most optimized ROM currently available for the X2 Series.

Installation Tips

  • You can download the latest DraX releases directly from the DraX app.
  • If you have Xposed installed on the system partition (does not apply to xposed on magisk) then you will need to reflash Xposed framework!
  • Works best if data is erased via TWRP right before flash, but it works fine just flashing over. Ringtones and notification sounds need to be reset via settings though.

For instance:

Keep apps, data, and root

  1. Download DraX ROM
  2. Reboot into TWRP Recovery
  3. ALWAYS MAKE NANDROID BACKUP
  4. Once backup is complete, hit the back button until you get to the TWRP home screen
  5. Select "Install"
  6. Navigate to the newly downloaded DraX.zip file
  7. Select DraX.zip
  8. Swipe to flash
  9. Reboot into system
  10. You will now have DraX on your device with all of your apps and settings (pick up where you left off)

Or

Fresh install

  1. Download DraX ROM
  2. Reboot into TWRP Recovery
  3. ALWAYS MAKE NANDROID BACKUP
  4. Once backup is complete, hit the back button until you get to the TWRP home screen
  5. Select "Wipe"
  6. Swipe to perform a factory reset (this wipes all userdata, but your internal sdcard will be left untouched)
  7. Once reset is complete, hit the back button until you get to the TWRP home screen
  8. Select "Install"
  9. Navigate to the newly downloaded DraX.zip file
  10. Select DraX.zip
  11. Swipe to flash
  12. Reboot into system
  13. You will be greeted with the set up wizard for DraX on your X2 or X2 Mini

Post-Install

Check the DraX app to make sure you're up to date!

Install Xposed Framework

  1. If flashing made you lose root, use B2AutoRoot to re-root with Magisk and flash the newest TWRP
  2. Remove on-screen buttons
    1. Settings → Fingerprint → Sensor Button → On
    2. Settings → Display → navigation_bar_display → Off
    3. New home button controls to allow for a full screen display:
      1. Press for home
      2. Tap or swipe the fingerprint scanner (not click) for back
      3. Double press for multitasking
      4. Hold for Google Assistant
  3. Speed improvements
    1. Enable Developer Options
      1. Settings → About → Build Number (tap a bunch of times)
    2. Settings → Developer Settings → Window Animation Scale → .5x
    3. Settings → Developer Settings → Transition Animation Scale → .5x
    4. Settings → Developer Settings → Animator Duration Scale → .5x
    5. Settings → Developer Settings → Force GPU Rendering → On (optional; sacrifices slight amount of battery for speed)
  4. Flash preferred GApps if you’d like. I included all necessary apps to function, the other GApps can be downloaded from the Play Store.
  5. Go into your settings and reset your notification sounds, since they will need to be manually changed.
  6. For better audio, follow the ViPER4Android Install Guide
  7. For more optional mods, follow the Blox2 Mod Guide

    This rom is great next paycheck I will be donating… You are awesome

    1. Draco says:

      Happy you enjoyed it! New versions are being released in the future. Thanks in advance for donating!

      1. Stephen says:

        We’re you able to use us to connect to PC after drax install? I haven’t been able to.

        1. Vladimir says:

          I haven’t either. There are issues with that…

      2. Will updated versions enable modification of system/etc/hosts?

  3. Vladimir says:

    Excellent. I live in Cuba, which makes difficult to donate as we do not own credit cards to pay on the web. But if I had one I would not doubt to do it. Thanks for your rom for this wonderful phone. Be coming back for more….

    I haven’t either. There are issues with that…

  5. Yoh Toledo says:

    I am not using a Blu Life One X2 but the same specs and same OEM (Tinno Mobile)
    Works fine on my Cloudfone Next. Great job Drax/Draco!

  6. Profile photo of Ritchie Ritchie says:

    when flashing rom on life on x2 mini it crashes and phone will not boot, so then i have to revert back to stock
    any help

  7. Billy Isom says:

    Like the Rom but can’t seem to get an alarm to work when the phones asleep now. Guess the stock clock only worked because it was in the system.

  8. I’m running this ROM on my X2 Mini, but I do not have the option to turn off the on screen buttons under Settings > Display.

    1. ieatgravity says:

      There isn’t an option built into the rom, the best way I have found to disable the nav buttons is to use gravitybox on Xposed and make the height of the nav bar 0.

  9. Hey Draco thanks for the awesome work.
    I just got your OS to fly in a stable Manor.
    I’m going to run through the reinstall procedure agian, because I still have minor problems. Also grats on the and command scripts, they helped out. So I learned something and had a good time. I will maybe type out some quick facts later, for myself and anyone else if they get posted. You accomplished quite a bit, and I read others been helping out. Keep on hacking and cracking guys.
