    I have a version of BB (not sure which, but not the latest) and I want to update it to the newest version, but I have made some metamorph theme changes, that I want to keep. Will these be over written? or will they stay the same?

    They will be overwritten.....because those changes that Metamorph makes are changes within the main most important file of your Droid, the /system file...

    And that's where all the changes and goodies are within ROMs...

    You could still update and just do all the same things you did to whatever version you have couldn't you?

    In theory you should be able to update the rom and then just reapply the MM theme.

    If you have the MM theme applied on your phone, it will also still be on your sd card. Check the AndroidThemes folder

    Also, there was an issue with one of the BB releases (0.7.5 I think) that caused BusyBox to not be executable, which would not allow MM to run. You can fix it with an adb shell or terminal emulator:

    Code:
    $ su
    # chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox
