    I know some people like them, but for some reason the little green android guy in caller id and text emoticons annoyed me. I was able to use Metamorph to remove both instances, so I thought I'd post the zip in case anyone else wanted to do the same.

    What it does:
    - Removes green android from phone screen when caller id is unknown
    - Changes emoticons in SMS from green androids to round yellow smilies (basically the same images with antennae removed and color changed)

    Instructions:
    - Must be rooted
    - Install Metamorph from Market
    - Save Unandroid.zip to /sdcard/AndroidThemes/
    - (optional) Nandroid backup to be safe
    - Run Metamorph, select Unandroid.zip, click apply all. There is a warning about framework-res.apk and the phone should reboot.

    I hope this is useful to someone.

    This seems awesome--I hate those little Android dudes for smilies and unknown callers.

    Do you have some screenshots that you could post?

    Added screenshots to the original post. The smilies aren't super polished but I like them better than the green dudes.
