    2.0.1 dock.apk's only

    Firstly! please do not spam this thread with "how do I root?" "How do I get busybox?" "How do I use Metamorph?"

    these are all questions that can be answered by searching.

    now, what this is. Ive been making some custom dock themes. this being one of the more dificult things to change while keeping it clean looking. Ive decided to take requests for dock themes.

    what you need. Root, busybox and metamorph.

    steps involved. firstly, ive included 2 dock themes in this post to let you see what it looks like. simply download the link, unzip it and place the zip file in Androidthemes in your SD card. open MM. select "pick theme". select the dock theme. select the dock.apk. and hit apply it. then enjoy!

    now, if you have a image you would like for your dock, simply post a link or the image it self in this thread, ill fix it up for ya and repost it for you in a MM format so all you have to do is install..

    theme 1

    [​IMG]

    theme 2

    [​IMG]

    enjoy!

    Note: both themes are in the zip, download it, extract the files to see both zips the pick the one you want. droiddock1.zip is theme 1 and droiddock2.zip is theme 2.

    files can be downloaded here

    EDIT: 3RD theme added

    good stuff, these look great. Tried them both but ended up going with the first one. Fits my overall theme much better.

    Not working for me. Metamorph tells me: The target/system/app/dock.apk does not exist. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to put the dock.apk file somewhere???

    with these custom docks could you set the minimum brightness to less than 10%?

    the brightness on docks doesnt change the brightness of the phone at all. it infact is just a darker background. strange huh? i found that interesting too. so to make it go darker, you quit literly have to go in to the image it self and darken it.

    did you download the first link? it has 2 docks in it, if you did, you have to unzip it, pull out one of the zips inside of it and place that in androidthemes file

    So there's really no way to actually override the LCDs brightness level directly (or indirectly)??? I had seen that with the stock dock and figured someone would figure a workaround at some point... that's rather odd (and stupid...) seeing as many people (like me) would like to put the phone on their nightstand.

    Oh, do you have a dock APK? That sounds like you don't have a dock API.

    I'm guessing I don't - which is odd, b/c I have the 2.1 dock launcher app. Any ideas where I can get this dock.apk?

    theres your issue right there, I guess I should have said this is a 2.0.1 thing =) your best bet would be to download dockrunner from the market. its a 2.0.1 dock.
