    Yes I actually use this on all the roms I flash. Give me a minute and I will attach.

    This needs to be pushed in place of the music app you have now. This can be done I believe wether you are rooted or not. If not rooted you need to use ADB with this command from the tools directory of ADB from the command prompt.

    Code:
    adb push Music.apk /system/app
    If rooted you can do this through Terminal Emulator as well. First put the file on the root of your sdcard.

    Code:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox cp -R /sdcard/Music.apk /system/app
    remount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot
    EDIT: with the attachment, delete the .zip by rename it to Music.apk

    If you look at the terminal commands the last one is reboot. I would recommend rebooting after done this for everything to take affect.

    Coverflow is only in landscape with albums selected. The attachent is Music.apk.zip. once download rename file to Music.apk . just delete the .zip as I had to put it on there to upload

    The command through ADB will over right the existing one. If you don't want to do that u can rename the original or use Astro to back it up.

    I tried the adb command to push and overwrite the existing Music app on a non-rooted Droid, and got

    failed to copy 'Music.apk' to '/system/app/Music.apk': Read-only file system

    Darn.

    I tried to use Astro to rename the existing Music app but have 'insufficient Permissions' and I tried to uninstall the existing Music app with Astro and got that uninstalling was unsuccessful.

    For you guys having issues with adb, why not simply use Root Explorer?
    It is not free, but a must have file explorer for a rooted Droid. You can mount the system r/w and copy/paste the Music.apk (renaming the the original to Music.apk.bak first, so you have it). Set the permissions of the new Music.apk once it is in the /system/app folder. chmod 644 is the same as using Root Explorer and setting User to both Read and Write and setting Group and Others to just Read. And as always, make sure to mount back to r/o when done.

    Sorry guys, for those who are not rooted try this. At the tools directory of ADB type this.

    All lowercase. I am not at a computer so can't test to make sure.

    Adb shell
    Mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    Exit

    Now you should be back @ tools directory.

    Adb push Music.apk /system/app/Music.apk

    So, now I have coverflow, but I'm back at 2.0.1 music in portrait it seems.... Sure this isn't just the coverflow music app? I thought it was 2.1 mixed with coverflow?
