    I seriously believe it was placebo and just me being a little nervous about flashing for the first time.
    As promised, here are a few links to some really sweet mods for skyRaider... the first link is directly to XDA for all the avail mod options SkyRaider 4.0 THEMES by ACD168 - xda-developers (the first section on transparent app drawer are METAMORPH related and I never mess with it since I don't know much about it) only click on the 'DOWNLOAD LINK' buttons only (unless you feel adventurous and want to experiment with METAMORPH, personally I don't like it and find it confusing). there are many cool things you can do, youll see I am also including a screenshot of my phone with the transparent rosie mod... I love it. here is a second link that will take you directly to the mirror site for the transparent rosie mod itself and nothing else Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!... but you can browse thought the first link and see if there are any other mods you may want to use to. just remember, DL the link, place on root of phone (you don't have to clear Dcache and regular cache but I always do just to be on the safe side), then just flash as an other normal zip .... and here is what my phone homescreen currently looks like.

    Pville, I have been rockin the clear rosie mod for quite some time now for skyraider., However I tried to add another mod to change the notification bar to a light blue color, But for some reason it won't let me do both at the same time! I only have the choice to select between the clear rosie mod for changing my notification bar to the blue what is going wrong?... I have tried to set them both at the same time 1 after another in different orders I don't know what I'm doing wrong your 2 cents would be greatly appreciated :-)

    When you flash a Mod you also re-flash some of the system/framework .apk's that have been mod'd for that specific Mod. If 2 Mod's modify the same .apk's then the last one will win. That's why some mods are not compatible with each other or every nightly/build.

    It's also the reason they came up with metamorph. As I understand it metamorph installs Mod's as apps rather then re-flashing the system/framework .apk's. It's a pain in the butt however you can flash multiple Mod's.

    Hope this helps!

    Can you please direct me to some Metamorph info on how to CORRECTLY USE it. I really want to be able to use more than 2 mods at a time.

    OK.... so I read through all of it and I think I am missing something... here is a screen shot of the error that I am getting... I used to have the Clear Rosie and now since I had to pick. I am stuck with the Blue notification bar... I would like to have both... if you or I cant figure it out then I will just stick with the clear rosie.... THIS IS WHY I DON"T LIKE METAMORPH.... I have tried it in the past and had no luck then either... I have to go to work but I will be on tapatalk.

    It looks like that might not be a metamorph zip? Those zips need to have .xml's that basically say what files in the system (framework_res.apk, framework.jar, systemUI if on GB, etc) are being replaced by the metamorph.

    Another option if you want to get your hands a little dirty is to go with ninjamorph. Basically, you can unzip the framework_res.apk that was modified with the clear rosie and manually drag all the themed .pngs from whatever theme you want. Then, when you apply the theme, you are getting everything you want in the .apk.

    This is super powerful in that you can grab whatever elements of themes and metamorphs you want, but it is also a little more in depth, since you need to know what .apks to modify and if you are changing out .png's in a file explorer or via the computer, you could theoretically miss or rename one, which would cause a boot loop.

    If you want to get into this, please pm me and I can be of more help. If there's enough interest, I can do an update on the "how to change the notification dropdown" post I made a while back (though that didn't really seem to pick up any interest).

    Re-flash the Clear Rosie .zip then try the metamorph blue icons. The metamorph should just replace the Icon's in the System .apk and leave the rosie alone.

    Or what rpz said!

    Not to be all self promoting, but check out my post on changing the notification background if you haven't already (here). It lays out the basics of ninjamorph pretty well, I think, and being able to follow the steps to change that one file will be helpful as you try to replace many, many more.

    Once you have done it once to get a feel for what it looks like normally, you can open the workspace for ninjamorph on a computer and drag and drop the theme files that way. This tends to be a bit more time consuming, but once you get the hang of it, you can really do whatever you want as far as custom theming.

    I moved back to skyraider 4.0 for a while. I'll try to play with this some and see if I can't get the configuration you're looking for.

    Why, thank you! Here's what I've got so far.



    I've only modified the com.htc.resources file, which changes the clear rosie, the signal strength, and the 3g/1x icons. My battery icon is in the framework-res.apk and has a ton of other changes. I also used the honeybread icons by haxzamatic instead of the ones you posted, cause I like them better. Let me know if you want this and I can give you a dropbox link to the apk, though you'll still have to apply it with ninjamorph.

    Seth, you get your metamorth thing all straight?

    I've used it a couple times and it is a little odd compared to flashing but works. A word of caution though, after I "metamorphed" (not sure if thats a term) the transparent app drawer it added some sort of vanilla launcher theme as well. I got around it rebooting, when it finished it's boot it axed if I wanted to use the ADW theme or Skyraider theme...obviously chose the Skyraider.

    Good luck tomorrow morning. Just out of curiosity... What was the cosmetic damage on your first Tbolt?

    Adrenaline has a couple of nice Tbolt rom's out as well as CM coming soon.

    And bacause I would kick myself for NOT saying it... Don't sell your DInc too fast!
