This is for MDPI devices Only
There are still alot more thing to do but ill give it as it is
There is no metamorph or update.zip, so attatched is the files needed
First you will need to get your framework-res.apk file and open it up (not extract), now navigate to /res/drawable-mdpi/ and place the images that are in the Statusbar folder (Which is in the zip i gave you) into the drawable-mdpi folder , now you can close that up and put it back on your device.
Now you will need to install the ADWGBMOD.apk file on your phone, if you already have adwlauncher installed, you will have to uninstall it first
Then finaly put the three images that are in the folder ‘Dock Icons’ onto your SDCard.
You can find more information in the original thread.
