XDA member Dont Panic presents this complete collection of elements to enhance and personalize your Android device.

[Morphs] Theme Chooser Add-ons: Lockscreens, Dialers, Boot Animations, Wallpapers
I love the new T-Mobile Theme Chooser provided in CM7, but it still has limits. These morph add-ons are meant to fill in some of the gaps. I started with UpwardSpiral’s excellent themes, and they may work well with others out there.
First post: Theme Add-ons
Second post: Boot Animations and Wallpapers
Third post: Instructions, Troubleshooting, and Changelog
Note: Themes override morphs. All morphs made for CyanogenMod7. Hdpi versions tested on my D1. I have no mdpi device to test on. Return to Stock images morphs are at the bottom of the OP.
Themes lockscreen icons, sliders/rotary, unlock pattern, lense, and volume.
