Original build: dthadamaja:

XDA: All the PPL that help: All the threads that helped me manage to get this build done.

Read these note I don't put theme here for my health I know how this thing works they are for you.

This is a modified build of the original buff Theme many of the old icons have been replaced. There also have been update to further improve the skin. There will be continued work to get this theme fully embedded into the android platform.

I am taking rom requests if you would like to see buuf ported to your rom please.

Post in this thread

Supported Roms
  • Cyanogen Mod
  • Dwang
  • TheOfficial
  • Manup Eclair

The release numbering will be changing now that there is a stable version of buuf. As of version 1.0 buuf will be considered a stable theme. The release versions will work in this manner.

Stable releases will consist of the primary release number and an even second number.
exp... 1.0, 1.2, 1.4 these are all stable theme releases
Experimental releases will consist of a primary release number and an odd second number.
exp... 1.1, 1.3, 1.5 these are all experimental releases and may cause problems.

I am going to extend the the life of the flashable release (Cyanogen Mod only) since some people are still having problem with metamorph. I will continue the flashable release until version 1.5 you will still need to use metamorph to do gmail, talk, vending, youtube images.

How use ddms
What you need
1. You need android sdk installed.
2. You need to have java sdk installed.
3. You need to have adb setup.
4. This should all be setup if you have a rooted phone.

How to use it
1. Navigate to you android sdk > Tools directory
2. double click ddms.bat
3. Make sure you select V or verbose
4. run the application/theme causing the problem
5. when done select a line in the log window
6. go to edit>select all
7. click the icons of the floppy disk and export to txt
8. send it to me or who ever needs it.

Logcat in ddms
1. go to device>run logcat
2. run the app/theme causing problems
3. click the X in the right corner
4. click save then save as <some file>
5. send it to me so I can fix the problem.

Not to hard is it! so someone having a problem with metamorph and a partial theme please send me some logs so I find out what is causing the problem and fix it.

If you didn't back up you can attempt to uninstall by reflashing CM MOD which should replace anything this theme changes.

Make a backup IT takes all 5min and you don't have to go though the whole flash procedure again. I recommend making a back up on a fresh flash before you put anything on your phone. Then make a second when you have all of your apps and configurations done all you have to do is rename the nandroid folder.

MD5Sums are your friend check these!! they will tell you if there is a problem with your download. This will stop you from flashing a bad archive and it will also let you know that I was the last one to modify it. They are to keep you safe. There is a link to a windows app to check these below
Windows: WinMD5Sum
Linux: $md5sum filename

Release 1.2 Stable CM
Release Notes: Release_Notes.txt
To fix Market Crash you must do this, go to settings then manage applications. Choose market, then uninstall updates. Open your market, sign in, and you can download again.
You must do this after installing framework-res

To theme market follow these steps exactly. Scripts attached to thread scroll down.


1. Run this code before you uninstall the market update. This backups up the market update so we can move it the /system/app/Vending.
mount -oremount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
mkdir /sdcard/buuf-backup
cp /data/app/ /sdcard/buuf-backup/
2. Now uninstall the market update.
3. Now run the following code and this will move the updated market to /system/app/Vending and you should be able to theme it.
rm -rf /data/app/
cp /system/app/Vending.apk /sdcard/buuf-backup/Vending.old.apk
rm -rf /system/app/Vending.apk
cp /sdcard/buuf-backup/ /system/app/Vending.apk
4. Theme vending.apk with metamorph.


1. copy the scripts to your sdcard
2. Run script from terminal
sh /sdcard/
3. Uninstall the market updates.
4. Run script from terminal
sh /sdcard/
5. run metamorph on the vending.apk

Buuf Addon Packages
Something New and Fun
I have been playing with some java programing and widgets. Note: (I am far from great programmer if you have any input I am all ears) So I manage to fumble through and get a clock widget working So here it is 2 sizes small and large.

Alpha Eclair_2.0.1-v1.0 (metamorph) New!!
rom manup456 Eclair_2.0.1-v1.0:

This is an Alpha release that mean little to no testing. Make a backup before using it. This is only known to work on the rom stated you may try it on others but I recommend only installing core packages. There is still work that needs to be done so it may be missing themed peaces here or there if you find any of these and can take a screenshot for me please do. I will fix them.

Custom addons how to
  1. Find the addon thread
  2. Confirm the addon work with your rom
  3. Install or flash the addon depending on how it is installed
  4. Open metamorph
  5. Morph the sub-theme for your addon
  6. Reboot if required (framework requires a reboot)

nice port over.. and i see youve added some extra fill-in parts to match the original theme...

nice job, im not sure if the creator has quit development, with all of these roms and new OS ports etc and themes evolving with the amount of customization that can be put into it... not sure if he has the time

good job tho,

are you customizing the PowerControl widget as well? - some people use it

I am slowly working though, updated a lot of the icons/animation I didn't Like. I will be doing more with the power control widget soon. I just did a quick background skin on it so it somewhat matched the theme. I have been putting of fighting with .9.png that have to be edited to make the widgets. Some are next to impossible to get stretched the right way. There will be more updates to Come.
