Talking NexTheme for DroidX

This is a copy/paste from here.

This is a port of Manup456's NexTheme for the Motorola Droid X. It is meant to be run on the .604 update to Android 2.1.

This installation will require some work, though it is not too difficult. You just need to follow the instructions.

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.

That being said, I didn't even need to restore while I was porting and testing this, so there should be minimal chance of any major mess-ups.

Instructions:

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

2. Download the following file:

NexTheme.zip

3. Extract the file. Put the MM.zip file in sdcard/AndroidThemes and the other two in /sdcard/nextheme

4. We will first need to push framework-res.apk and services.jar to the system. Do not use root explorer to copy the files! Open up your terminal emulator or adb (preferably) and type:

Code:
su
mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
cp /sdcard/nextheme/framework-res.apk /system/framework/
reboot
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:
su
mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
cp /sdcard/nextheme/services.jar /system/framework/
reboot
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. Enjoy your new theme

From what I understand the only change to the services.jar is so that the text shows up white. Other than that everything else is changed in the framework-res.apk (aside from the settings icons and such).

I was wanting to do the same thing, but don't want to deal with going into a bootloop in the chance it does cause that. Does anyone know if this would be OK?

The Android in the pull down is great! Can someone post some instructions for us to put that on as well?
