Have you installed someone elses theme yet? If not then go directly to jail, do not pass GO and do not collect £200

Using ADB

There's an ADB Guide here (thanks to XPeriaX10iUser for having this in his sig ): ADB, Fastboot, and Nandroid for Noobs

Before you start need to unsecure the shell. Use the following adb commands to do this if you haven't already (to reverse it do chmod 0755... thanks XperiaX10iUser ):
adb shell
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock2 /system
chmod 4755 /system/bin/sh
This is all described in the links posted in the Getting Started section above

Thanks to MrRusch for making our lives easier with this tool. For those of you new to this, you should still read the guide linked above so that you know what is actually going on.

Here's a step by step for pulling the framework from your phone and pushing it back. The original post is here. The boot animation mod at the bottom is for 1.6. In 2.1 it is found in system/media/
@gavriel18: I hope it's OK to use this here, if not then let me know.

That will pull your framework-res.apk to whatever folder is displaying in your command line.
Step 2:
Find the framework-res.apk on your hard drive, right click and open with 7zip.
Step 3:
Use png's here or create your own and dump into the appropriate folder within framework-res.apk.
Step 4:
When you are done editing the files open up adb and type the following command:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock2 /system
adb push framework-res.apk /sdcard/framework-res.apk
adb shell dd if=/sdcard/framework-res.apk of=/system/framework/framework-res.apk

That will put the new framework-res.apk on your phone. It should automatically reboot (if not reboot it) and your changes should be applied!
When running the script above you can replace framework-res.apk with whatever you want. For example, Timescape.apk
Remember, it is CASE sensitive I made this problem many times)

If you would like to pull an entire folder put a slash at the end of the last word. For example, adb pull /system/etc /etc"/" (no " in actual script )

Courtesy of corruptfate is the steps to modify the startupshow (post #207)

step 1: open adb shell
step 2: type "adb shell"
step 3: type "su"
step 4: type "mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system"
step 5: type "mkdir system/etc/semc/startupshow"
step 6: exit and redo step 1 - 4
step 7: type "mkdir system/etc/semc/startupshow/default"
step 8: exit and open command prompt again, this time type "ddms"
step 9: look for the default folder in system > etc > semc > startupshow > default
step 10: push the images into that folder
