    [Theme] NexTheme V2.1 for Droid X (8/16/2010)

    This is a port of Manup456's NexTheme for the Motorola Droid X. It is meant to be run on the .604 update to Android 2.1.

    This installation will require some work, though it is not too difficult. You just need to follow the instructions.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that may go wrong in this process - Though with the SBF file now, it is almost impossible to brick a Droid X.

    That being said, I didn't even need to restore while I was porting and testing this, so there should be minimal chance of any major mess-ups.

    Changelog

    V2.1: Fixed the horizontal progress bars (the weird behavior before a download, etc.)

    V2: Fixed the pull down buttons so now you can read the white text. Themed MotoTorch and Ringer Control Widgets now included! Optional wallpapers can be found here:

    nexpapers.zip

    Instructions

    1. Download 'MetaMorph' from the market. Run it once and grant it root permissions.

    2. Download the following file:

    NexTheme_V2-1.zip

    3. Extract the file. Make a folder on your sdcard called nextheme. Extract the contents of the 'framework' and 'apps' folder into sdcard/nextheme. Extract the contents of the 'metamorph' folder into sdcard/AndroidThemes

    4. We will first need to push framework-res.apk and services.jar to the system. Open up your terminal emulator or adb (preferably) and type:

    Code:
    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/nextheme/framework-res.apk /system/framework/
    reboot
    
    after this reboot, you should notice a different status bar, but the clock and time will still be black.

    open up terminal emulator (or adb) again and this time we'll push services.jar

    Code:
    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/nextheme/services.jar /system/framework/
    reboot
    
    the following reboot will take between 3-5 minutes!

    Now the clock and time, etc. will be white.

    5. Now, fire up MetaMorph and choose unzip/extract new theme, select nextheme, and let it do it's thing extracting. Once it's done extracting, you can apply all the themes (for the apps), or apply only the ones you want.

    6. Using the 'Files' app that comes with the Droid X, you can navigate to sdcard/nextheme and install the widgets if you'd like. You can see what they look like in the screenshots section.

    7. Enjoy your new theme :)

    [THEME] NexTHEME-v2.0r2-Enom_1.9.2/CM_5.0.7.1 Back In the Kitchen! =) - Nexus Nation Forum

    How to return to stock

    Those looking to get back to stock can use this file:

    Back_to_stock.zip

    There are extra apps in the MM on purpose, since you can use this with other themes as well (and possibly more things will be themed in future releases of NexTheme)

    Use the same instructions as installing this theme.

    Yes, the framework and services files. The rest of the apps are themed with metamorph.

    YES, FINALLY!!!

    The only thing I've wanted on my X was a black bar! I don't need OC since it's so fast, I don't need most of the stuff that ROMs offer. All I wanted was to remove stock apps and get a nice black bar theme (NexTheme ftw!).

    Now that the SBF is out and you have ported over NexTheme, my dreams can come true! I can REMOVE the apps without fear of bricking and apply this theme, knowing that if I screw it up, I can flash the SBF.

    In case you can't tell, I'm excited...

    Just for reference, I tried to use root explorer. When I pasted the framework, the screen went black and went into a bootloop. I couldn't get it to boot by pulling the battery or anything and couldn't get to adb so I'm currently testing the SBF file! LOL

    edit: yep, same as hiphopvenom

    Really wish I hadn't done this. Really screwed my phone over by trying to use root explorer. After going into recovery mode I figured it would all be good if I did a factory reset; that didn't work. Now Im trying every way I can find to flash the SBF and so far having no luck. Its 5am and I gotta get up before 9, this is starting to feel like an FML moment.

    Don't worry, your phone is fine. Mine did the same thing and the SBF fixed it. Just go through the SBF instructions carefully. My only problem after the SBF flashing is that my 3G doesn't work at *228 option 1 isn't working but a factory reset should fix it.

    I tried it before you posted your results, been trying to fix my phone for hours.
    The problem is that RSD doesn't see my phone, even after updating drivers etc. I even tried the linux method and that didn't work. However, when in recovery mode there is an error at the bottom that reads:
    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command
    Could this be making my phone inaccessible to the computer for some reason? Or am I supposed to do something in recovery mode before the computer recognizes it?
