    I'm now using Adamz new smoked glass rom and it comes with a smoked glass themed 2.1 Launcher. Unfortunately like all other 2.0 or 2.1 launchers with functional buttons, I get a lot of FC and there's the landscape issue.

    So, as long time fan of GDE (gotta have my functional button launcher using the hero and espresso themes), I wonder if anyone would be willing to make a smoke glass theme for GDE. My guess is that such a theme would be quite popular.

    AdamZ's rom can be found here

    Try obsidian skin. It has a clean/glass feel to it and looks great with all the smoked glass themes. I have been using it for a while now.

    custom dropdown navigation bar?

    Sorry if this is in wrong place. I have an unrooted Droid. I would like to change the stock dropdown navbar to have the *****in' look I have seen on others screenshots. I currently use backgrounds that change every hour and I love that. I have scoured the forums and have not been able to figure out how to accomplish this.

    If you are wanting to change that you will have to root. And use metamorph

    I was afraid of that. The day I got my droid, my wife and I spent several hours trying to root and finally gave up. The language pro's use was above us. No worrys. With the upcoming ota update to 2.1 will that option be available? Or would you know the details yet?

    dude if you want to root, use droidmods dmupdater... it does all the hard stuff for you. And there is a step by step guide with pics to help you. You can have all the 2.1 goodies now. It is a very stable rom

    I do like the obsidian skin (have it, hero, and espresso loaded on my phone), but prefer the glossy blackness and icons (of the 2.1 smoked glass launchers) over the text buttons.

    IF the 2.1 update that is forthcoming doesn't give me the option then I will root. I am familiar enough with this machine now that it shouldn't be too difficult. This was my first smart phone and it was the first day I had it, so I Was really just a kindergartner showing up for my first day of high school.

    Well I can tell you now that the 2.1 update will not allow you to do it either. It will still require root acess. Problem is if you update to 2.1 you may not be able to root. Devs will have to find a exploit to gain root access, and no body know how hard it will be. It may happen right away, or it could take weeks or months. If at all

    I dunno if this is the right spot to ask, but I am using the GDE hero theme on my unrooted stock Droid, and I love the look, except it changed my wallpaper, is there a way to get my old wallpaper back with the hero theme for GDE?

    Long press on a empty space on any home screen and you will be brought to a menu to change wallpaper.
