I set out to edit my first system file because I was annoyed by it. The stock gallery in the Droid X has the worst background that should be fully black to help the rendering process. Instead of the application rendering some horrible gradient background it should just render the thumbnails, so I changed that real quick. Next up was the photo frame widget that the gallery uses. I love the black frame look seen in other gallery apps, so I took the white and changed it to a slick black gradient frame with a slight shadow. Granted this is NOT a huge modded thing – it will be a great addition to any Droid X, enjoy!

*Note – This may work with other FROYO devices out there – so please test and comment!*

UPDATE.ZIP Method proves to be working perfectly so try this method first!

Love it! Goes great with the theme I'm building for myself...


Found one flaw. On your zip file you put the MediaGallery.apk in the framework folder instead of the app folder. You might want to change that...

Works perfectly! The load time for media in the gallery seems to be greatly decreased! Thank you
