    Hello, I just got a new home replacement app, and it replaced (only!) my Google search widget (originally black glass) back to dreaded ugly white, and it goes with nothing on any of my pages of app's. I was just wondering if someone could give me a Metamorph file to morph it back to black glass. :motdroidhoriz::motdroidhoriz: Thanks in advance. :motdroidhoriz::motdroidhoriz:

    DO you know the apk name and location? Can you just pull it, edit the background and put it back in? My smoked glass creation is a bit under par and those few that I've asked to share their work, haven't even the decency to respond and give me the FO.

    I'd share mine with ya if you can get it to work.

    The name of the launcher is "LauncherPro Beta." Also, if you could do the Pandora widget? I know it's a lot to ask for. It's alright if You can't. I completely understand.

    Are you wanting smoked glass with the blue or just the smoked glass background itself?

    Just the smoked glass. No blue needed. Also, for that link you just gave me do I have to reinstall the whole launcher and put all my apps back out on to it, or what is the best way to do it.

    Here is Pandora skinned as well. Both of these need to be in /system/app and removed from /data/app
    Pandora.apk

    That's fine I will try to explain it then. In adb (easier to use) follow these commands.

    adb shell
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cd /data/app
    busybox cp com.fede.launcher.apk /system/app
    busybox cp com.pandora.android.apk /system/app
    cd /system/app
    mv com.pandora.android.apk Pandora.apk
    exit
    adb push com.fede.launcher.apk /system/app
    adb push Pandora.apk /system/app

    If you don't know or have ADB please look into it.

    I have never used ADB before (although I have heard a lot about it but could never get it to work), is all I do copy and paste that text into what looks like CMD? (of course have the files you gave me downloaded, and also have my phone mounted to my computer)

    First do you have ADB? It is part of the SDK. If not it can be found here Android SDK | Android Developers

    Then unzip it and rename the folder to "android" and place on the C: drive. So the path for it would look like this C:\android.

    Open CMD and type cd C:\android\tools --->this is where you need to place the files I made

    In the command prompt do the commands I gave you with the phone connected to USB.

    When you say at the end "In the command prompt do the commands I gave you with the phone connected to USB." I have two questions.
    1) Do I have to mount it or just leave it connected to USB
    2) Do I have to do those commands one by one? Or do I just copy and paste it in CMD? Because I copied and pasted those commands you gave me all at one time, and It showed me some things going on in CMD and it made me choose my default launcher again on my phone and once I clicked it, it rebooted my phone, but it still didn't have glass Pandora/Google Search Widget.

    Do not mount just have USB debugging on and cord connected. Do the commands one at a time.
