    Cool PiMp My DrOiD!

    This is a tutorial on how to pimp your droid!!!!!(note this theme is for 2.1)

    First off download and install metamorph from the market place.

    Next download this theme and place it to your android themes on your SD card: http://alldroid.org/download/file.php?id=1069

    Unmount your sd card and open metamorph. In metamorph select the theme.
    It may take up to 5 minutes for metamorph to unzip the file but sit tight!
    (Note: it is important to mount your sd card or metamorph will refuse to run!)

    Next download beautiful widgets from the market place (note please do not steal by using websites that host free versions!)

    Now replace your boot animation. this can be done by downloading this: http://droidboots.com/http//droidboo...ions/nexus.zip

    Now rename it to bootanimation.zip

    Then in adb shell type
    Code:
    su 
    cd /sdcard
    cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip 
    reboot.
    Link to Droid root helper: Droid root helper.zip root helper.zip

    How to get metamorph
    1 Open android market on you Droid

    2 Search Metamorph

    2 Download Metamorph

    Metamorph not working? In adb type

    Code:
    su
    ln -s /system/bin/busybox /system/bin/cp
    Accessing ADB shell on a mac
    1 Open terminal

    2 Type cd and then drag your folder called tools from the Android SDK and hit enter

    3 Type
    Code:
    ./adb shell
    4 You have now open adb!

    Accessing ADB shell on windows

    1 Open CMD.exe

    2 Cd to your tools folder (you must find and type your exact adress to your tools folder!)

    3 Type your commands begging with adb

    4 Finish!

    Okay.
    1. This is not a good tutorial.
    2. Where is the diversity? Everyone would have the exact same Droid.
    3. The method you gave for bootanimation requires root access but is not talked about at all. But there is a way to do it without root.

    Sorry to be harsh I like the effort.

    Ok. I am actually happy to hear this because it lets me know i can improve. Now i ask how can i improve? And also as the diversity goes if you dont want this theme then dont use my toutrial. Simple simple

    Metamorph won't initialize. It starts up, goes to load up some files, then says something to effect of "not enough space in /system or busy box isn't installed." Iknow busy box is installed. How do I fix this?

    It may be the location of busybox. What i use is droid root helper download that apk to your droid and use that to install busybox. its very straight forward.
    First open droid root helper
    Second click mount system read/write
    Third Click on install and chmod busybox and TADA!!!!

    Note: I have included droid root helper as a attachment in my tutorial.

    That's exactly how I installed it. Still no dice.

    In astro or any type of file explorer check to see if busybox is installed in /system/xbin.

    in console:
    su
    ln -s /system/bin/busybox /system/bin/cp


    works like a charm.

    It is.
    I think it has to do with the amount of available memory.
