    This is a port of Manup456's NexTheme for the Motorola Droid X. It is meant to be run on deodexed Froyo 2.2

    If you are running Froyo, but not deodexed, consult these threads:

    [HOW-TO] Manually deodex your phone. - Droid X Releases - AllDroid Public Board - [HOW-TO] Manually deodex your phone. - Droid X Releases - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home

    Droid-X Clockwork Recovery image. Deodexed Rooted, Froyo'd - Droid X Releases - AllDroid Public Board - Droid-X Clockwork Recovery image. Deodexed Rooted, Froyo'd - Droid X Releases - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for anything that may go wrong in this process - Though with the SBF file now, it is almost impossible to brick a Droid X.

    Includes
    -Themed Framework and some apps
    -Custom NexTheme Font (removable)
    -Themed MotoTorch and Ringer widgets

    Downloads

    NexTheme: Fabolous_NexTheme_Froyo_DX.zip

    Default Fonts: Stock_Fonts_Froyo_DX.zip

    Battery % in notification bar: Battery_Percentage_Froyo_DX.zip

    Installation

    Requirements: Rooted, Deodexed Froyo, Koush's Droid X Bootstrapper

    1. Download file(s) and place the .zip files on the root of your sd card
    2. Reboot into Clockwork recovery
    3. Install .zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard
    4. Install NexTheme (and customizations if you wish).

    Note: If installing default font or battery %, install NexTheme first, then apply patches.

    5. Enjoy your new theme!

    Outdated - For Android 2.1 Only
    Changelog

    V2.1: Fixed the horizontal progress bars (the weird behavior before a download, etc.)

    V2: Fixed the pull down buttons so now you can read the white text. Themed MotoTorch and Ringer Control Widgets now included! Optional wallpapers can be found here:

    nexpapers.zip

    Instructions

    1. Download 'MetaMorph' from the market. Run it once and grant it root permissions.

    2. Download the following file:

    NexTheme_V2-1.zip

    3. Extract the file. Make a folder on your sdcard called nextheme. Extract the contents of the 'framework' and 'apps' folder into sdcard/nextheme. Extract the contents of the 'metamorph' folder into sdcard/AndroidThemes

    4. We will first need to push framework-res.apk and services.jar to the system. Open up your terminal emulator or adb (preferably) and type:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. su
    3. mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    4. cp /sdcard/nextheme/framework-res.apk /system/framework/
    5. reboot
    6.  
    after this reboot, you should notice a different status bar, but the clock and time will still be black.

    open up terminal emulator (or adb) again and this time we'll push services.jar

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. su
    3. mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    4. cp /sdcard/nextheme/services.jar /system/framework/
    5. reboot
    6.  
    the following reboot will take between 3-5 minutes!

    Now the clock and time, etc. will be white.

    5. Now, fire up MetaMorph and choose unzip/extract new theme, select nextheme, and let it do it's thing extracting. Once it's done extracting, you can apply all the themes (for the apps), or apply only the ones you want.

    6. Using the 'Files' app that comes with the Droid X, you can navigate to sdcard/nextheme and install the widgets if you'd like. You can see what they look like in the screenshots section.

    7. Enjoy your new theme :)

    do not use root explorer to do this. It will result in a bootloop that can only be fixed with the sbf file

    How to get back to stock

    The following instructions are for 2.1 only -- a 2.2 method will be released this weekend

    Those looking to get back to stock can use this file:

    Back_to_stock.zip

    There are extra apps in the MM on purpose, since you can use this with other themes as well (and possibly more things will be themed in future releases of NexTheme)

    Use the same instructions as installing this theme.

    Well, I put the files and instructions up. What brave souls dare try this, hehe?

    If you happen to do so, report back with your findings! :D

    I will report back tomorrow. But how would we go about getting rid of this theme. I guess you could just flash the sbf file, root then restore with TiBu

    Installed this on my phone today, at first it rebooted twice - thought I was reboot locked. But after that second boot all was OK. Then I cp'ed the services.jar and waited a little while. It proceeded to do a two-boot process as well. Once all that noise was said and done, it started looking pretty sexy. So I fired up metamorph, extracted the theme files, applied them all and voila! It works fantastically and now my friends who have the Droid X wonder why my phone looks so much cooler. ;)

    This is still running "on top of" Blur correct?

    This does not replace it nor fix the occasional stutter of Blur through the screens?

    That's correct, this is just a theme and a aesthetic change only, there are no performance implications.


    Also, for anyone who wants to try this, we found out the hard way at Droid Forums that root explorer does not work. So only use adb or terminal emulator.

    I dont seem to have a /sdcard/nextheme directory on my sd.

    Android themes is there, but not this directory. What do I do to create this directory?

    Just make a new folder within /sdcard named nextheme and place the files in there. You can do it on the computer in the mass storage mode.

    When I type su I'm getting "permission denied" even though I'm rooted. What am I missing or doing wrong?

    Edit: I just did it through the terminal emulator instead.

    I've run into a problem since applying the theme(s), whenever I plug my phone into the usb cord and connect it to my computer my phone resets twice.

    Edit: Phone will not turn off, it instantly boots back up (twice) after pressing power off.

    Edit: Pulled the battery and now everything is fine.

    Is there any way to get back to stock without using the sbf file n testing your phone, like in case this causes any issues with the froyo update? Any chance it will? Or is it same old nobody knows?

    I know this is a little off topic but I would be most happy to get a theme that just got rid of the blur look and made the phone theme a stock android one.

    I don't think it would affect the froyo update since all it does is changes the .png images. And Fab said that he would make a MM that would take it back to "stock"
