Someone pointed out metamorph to me to change our themes on the fly
if your using it or trying to and are stuck at the unable to open .zip make sure busybox is installed /system heres the fix assuming busybox is installed

you must be rooted!!!!!!!

download metamorph from market
download andexplorer from market
link cp with busybox- open adb shell type the following
ln -s /system/bin/busybox /system/bin/cp
reboot
now metamorph should work
Do not apply any theme without a good nandroid backup
I am not reponsible if you botch your droid !!!!!!!
Have fun

Are you sure that symbolic link is correct? Dont you really want the cp command to be as "busybox cp" or just the cp version of busybox (which then you would have to install, and then copy or move this version to /system/bin.

If it doesn't work and if you find the busybox file in /system/xbin instead of /system/bin, use:

ln -s /system/xbin/busybox /system/xbin/cp

I could not get it to work before, but it worked this time.

Yeah I successfully made a morph for a pretty nice battery icon for the taskbar, it worked fine in 2.10. I upgraded to 2.1 and then i read that people were having problems changing the taskbar icons in 2.1, so I kinda set it aside for a while. Anyone tried changing taskbar icons in 2.1??? I don't want to be a guinea pig.

From what I have seen, some apps use system/bin to find busybox, while others you system/xbin...

So basically, for compatibility reasons, you should probably copy it to both /system/bin and /system/xbin so nomatter what you use, it can find it. It wastes some extra phone space, but is probably worth it since it will make things easier in the future (better compatibility)..

Rooting after 2.1 is installed

I have installed android 2.1 and I was wonder how you can get root command after the fact. Now when I'm at the terminal su does nothing, I dont get the #.

make sure you put the su file on the phone after rooting it. also make sure you didn't block it with the superuser permission app

Everytime I try to load my changes with metamorph my phone reboots, but I'm using a pretty early 2.1 install still.

Yeah, mount /system as read/write first.

Code:
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
ln -s /system/xbin/busybox /system/xbin/cp
mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
sync
exit
