    you Need to pull MetaMorph using adb shell to your Computer...
    From there you need to open the .apk and inside of assest there is 2 file's... 1. zip 2. zipalign...

    You need to Push those Files into /system/bin then repair...

    That's it, now Metamorph will work.. But? I was almost positive I had this fixed in R8

    Can you guys elaborate on how you got this to work? I was under the impression we can only metamorph themes that were designed for behold 2:thinking:

    Hey guys, I think I've been good about reading every post in any of the rooting threads and been able to ODIN my phone all r* 1.6 without a hitch. However, I want to theme BH_MAN's 1.6 Galaxy R8 with this bluish theme. I have the stericson.xda.metamorph.apk sitting on my desktop. How do i pull the zip and zip-align from this apk to push back into /system/bin? I've google and search this forum to no avail. Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated. Just need to know how to get zip and zip align, the rest i can do. Thanks in advance.

    AndroidFriend provided the files in another thread. You can also open the .apk using WinRar. Then the zip and zipalign files are in the assets folder.

    awe okay.... Just check my R8 build... I was mistaken that I had added the MetaMorph support to it.... R9 has it... I just haven't finished it & I have added it to the 1.6 Factory Behold II & the 1.6 no Twiz Rom...

    I'll try and make time this week & get R9 posted & back to stock since we have Themers coming into play....

    I'll also Upload a Templet for MetaMorph for everyone to use as well with a How-to when I get time, both for the Behold 2 1.6 & for the Galaxy 1.6 rom's

    Thank you. I don't have WinRar yet. I will download soon. I must say we have a lot of good support from these forums.

    behold 2 1.6 no twiz is gonna be hard to theme do to massive renames of framework images to touchwiz named images.

    really looking forward for the galaxy template.
