    So I rooted last night using Sholesmod, installed Bugless Beast, installed SetCPU. All is well. Now I'm at a loss for what I want to do next. I have read through a lot of stuff today and still can't decide on what I want to do next. Looked into Metamorph, possibility, but I need to install other things first. So I download DroidRootHelper for busybox, etc. I open up droidroothelper and im lost. Look around all over for help on installing and the stuff I have read is either confusing to me, or incomplete. So I'm at a standstill. I want to move forward on metamorph but i'm also looking for other things that I can do as well.

    Any help on droidroothelper/ metamorph?
    Suggestions for other fun things for rooted droids?

    All I'm doing now is reading as much as I can as well as trying to comprehend what I'm reading.

    You shouldn't need Droidroothelper for Metamorph....just download Metamorph from the Market and then download Andexplorer.....

    Then follow directions about Metamorph at the xda forums

    you need to install BusyBox to use Metamorph and Droid Root HELPER is the one stop EASY way of doing that. who wants to type into terminal
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    when you can just press a button

    -=Jason=-

    to install busybox
    open DRH and scroll down to Installs
    click on Install and chmod Busybox(installs to /system/bin)
    click on Install and chmod flash_image(busybox must be installed first)

    Ok I got that far and then opened up Metamorph, Start Checks and it says "Some Files Could Not Be Extracted and Set Up. Make sure you have enough space and busybox is installed."

    If you have bugless beast or beauty installed then busybox is already loaded on your phone so no worries about that...

    I only have droid rootPRO but its all about the same. You have to:
    1)Mount /system RW
    2)install & chmod flash_image
    3)install & chmod busybox
    4)flash SPRecovery (whichever the latest one is)
    5)rename recovery.from.boot.p to "".old
    6)sync
    7)Mount /system Read Only
    8)Youre done :)

    I say might as well try out 2.1 with nexus livewallpaper working :) i have it as mine and its awesome lol

    Did that with terminal and I got this-

    link failed file Exists

    I opened up And Explorer and opened up the system folder and busybox and cp are there.
    Still getting the same error with Metamorph when doing a check.
