What do you do once you’ve determined that you want to Odex your ROM and you are away from your computer? XDA Senior Member MatrixDJ96 created a simple recovery-flashable script that does this for you from the comfort of your device. The tool does one thing, and it does it well: odex your device’s ROM.
