    Is there a way I can change the Bugless Beast single bar to the Smoked Glass Rom Phone/Apps/Browser, without changing the rom itself? I would change roms, but I don't like going to screen 2 instead of 3 when i hit home. I'm a little picky. :tongue:

    Yea, still not liking the idea of a 2.1 rom. I like having a 2.0.1 rom since 2.1 hasn't even been released for the Droid yet.

    You could try MM theme Droidinator. I believe it has the correct home screen as the third one.

    Just choose the launcher 2 part of it. Should be the same thing, cause he got it from Adamz theme.

    You know its not that hard to put a metamorph theme together right?

    Take all those apks from the phone. Transfer them to your computer. Unzip all the apks to a theme folder. Strip out all the subfolders other than res. Usually the images you want will be in drawable-hdpi. Anyway, make a .thm file (use another metamorph theme as a template but it might take 3 minutes to make). Transfer back your theme folder to /sdcard/AndroidThemes. Go to metamorph and apply the theme (of course you must be rooted)!!

    I believe my question is pretty similar:

    Is there a way to get the 2.1 style, as in the 5 screens, and three buttons on the bottom, but keep it like a drawer without the 3D Launcher? As neat as that is, just seems a little unoptimized at the moment.
    I use GDE and have played around with other home replacements to simulate those very features, but I'd prefer it all in the basic standard Home... just with a regular drawer instead of anything crazier.

    Might try Home++ again as a recent theme made the bottom 'dock' so much more appealing and useful.

    You can get the 3 buttons on the bottom, but I don't believe the two side buttons will be functional.

    I made a metamorph theme with only the Phone for now. I know you want the Browser, but I couldn't understand the 3rd request. Please before applying this theme, back up /system/app/Phone.apk so that if Metamorph somehow corrupts things, you can reinstall this apk from recovery using adb push Phone.apk /system/app/

    To use
    Extract the .zip folder.

    Placed the folder within /sdcard/AndroidThemes/
    Used Metamorph to apply

    Good luck.

    @thebowers, i dont think that would work since I didn't have the bar in the first place.

    @kevdog, Thanks! Will try it this afternoon since im just about to lave. Is there a way through a patch to get them working? I got a 2.0 lock screen that way and it struck me last night as a possibility.

    You have to have Launcher2 to use those buttons.
