    Metamorph as a whole won't load on 0.7 (on mine)
    Free space/busybox error not enough space and not everything will be loaded. And it doesn't launch (the message is something like the above, but it flashes too quickly to read.

    Anyone have success? This is the theme I want to load.

    Try this:

    adb shell
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtd/mtdblock4 /system
    chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox
    reboot
     
    Icedemon and inssane like this.

    I think you should be able to do it in terminal emulator also, just replace adb shell with 'su'

    Damn terminal emulator won't work on this update either.
    Darnit - lemme find another.

    I am curious if anyone else with this update is having metamorph issues or if it's just me.

    It's not just you. Busybox is broken, and I posted the fix.

    However, I think there's a function in MM itself that lets you reinstall busybox. I just suggested the other method first, as busybox is already installed, it just needs its permissions modified.

    I don't see why not. But, better be safe and make a nandroid before you try it.

    Yeah, I agree on doing the nandroid backup. I might try the glass theme although I am considering trying Ultimate Droid. So I just need to make up my mind

    Haha, yeah. I haven't had the best of luck with UD, but I know lots of people really love it.

    Btw, the Smoked Glass looks really nice, and Pete altered the Neural Network LWP a bit to match it:

    Hi guys, first time post for me but I figured this was a good place to start asking. I have the motorola droid, rooted with droidmod 1.0 initially I had sholes mod and that had a smoked glass theme. I've been trying to find it again but have yet to find it. The theme you link will it work with my droid? Do I need metamorph or do I simply use the update.zip method (do rename the file for that glass theme you linked?) And will it interfere with droidmod? Lol sorry for so many questions but figured id give it a shot
