    Please forgive me for asking rediculous questions regarding my rooted Droid, I'm probably old enough to be most of your Dad. Last night I installed DM 1.0 and love it, OC at 800mhz but afraid to go any higher. I'd like to try to install the Smoked Glass, however I don't want to mess anything up. There is a video on YouTube: - I want to know if I can install the Smoked Glass ROM following his instructions or will I mess up DM1.0 ROM?

    Easiest way to do it:


    Download metamorph and andexplorer from the market
    Download the smoked glass file to your computer
    mount your phone to you computer
    Move the smoked glass .zip to the androidthemes folder on your SD card
    Open up metamorph and find the smoked glass.zip and apply it to your phone (make sure you click on the framework.res one)

    Reboot

    look up how to make the clock white (there are a thousand threads on it)

    What's this 800 stuff and you're afraid to go higher. Crank that puppy up to 1 Ghz and let her rip.:)

    Apparently the smoked glass theme zip file I put in the androidthemse folder isn't good. It was extracting 5 files but I get a message something is invalid and exits the program. Any idea where to get the smokedglass.zip ? Oh, and I did have metamorph. I just got it this morning when I switched to the transparent news/weather widget.

    I am just afraid whatever I do I am going to lose my DM1.0 ROM.
    Thanks for your instructions - easy to follow, but I just got the wrong zip file I guess.

    Vulcan -
    I did this yesterday and it doesn't mess up DM1.0.

    Anyone -
    I just tried another one and for some reason I get messages that it skips things when it is running. For example, it says it can't find contacts (which i know is there). After reboot nothing looks different to me. Am I doing something wrong?

    Is DM1.0 a 2.01 rom or a 2.1 rom? If it is 2.01 the framework-res will work fine, but if it is 2.1 it will need some modification. Also what color is the time right now for you? If it is black it may stay black. In which case you would need to look at xUltimate over at alldroid to change the color.

    DM is based on 2.0.1 The clock will be black when applying the smoked glass theme, so you have to push a services.jar file to make it white.

    If the specified app doesn't exist it will be skipped, or is the path for the app is incorrect in the .thm file is another reason it can't find it.

    I read somewhere that when using metamorph you should not just go from one theme to another. You need to download the xStock theme and apply that to get everything back to stock and then apply a new theme. The other way was to restore from backup.
    I think that may be why you saw no changes to your theme.

    Hmm

    I am using dm 1.0 its a 2.0.1 based rom as you know, I have run adamz rom before but now when I go to nandroid back up after extracting ect. reboot the and run a advanced back up I get the blue droid and the nexus boot then it restarts the boot animation and loops it self? wonder why as I have used it before. I am using the 1.0 now but hate the stock look so I downloaded the red theme from mjones thanks mike for that but I have the white status bar on top should I download the smoke theme in metamorph or can I change my status bar to smoke using mikes current apk in metamorph. :reddroid:

    When I select the theme metamorph says that the theme control file could not be found and may be missing what does this mean?
