    Question, probably a noob question...sorry

    I cracked my screen on my droid and I'm getting a replacement tommorrow. I was wondering if I can transfer all my backup to the new phone with my sd card. Do I have to root the new phone again(spfrecovery)?Or can i just put my sd card in there?

    well, Savidi. the easiest way if youre running a windows machine is to download RSDlite and sprecovery and flash it on. after that you would create a nandroid backup and repeat the same process on your new phone and restore the previous backup

    This does not effect your sdcard

    Rsdlite is only for the internal memory.
    I had a nice signature, but the mean ate it.

    Not exactly, RSDlite modifies the recovery file changing it from the standard motorola/android recovery to SPrecovery.sbf which allows you to preform a full nandroid backup.

    when you restore it onto your new phone youll continue exactly from where you left off

    Kernels are the core component for running an operating system. They handle all the interaction between the applications and the hardware of the phone, computer, etc.

    Changing toolbars and button slides would be considered a theme; a lot of themes are compatible with different ROMs, which are built off the complied kernels, but some themes are ROM specific.

    Kernels are complied when created and when developers compile their kernels to have special features the end user gets a different ROM, so while some themes are made compatible with ROM X and Y, the same theme won't work on ROM Z. So you have to check into the different ROMs and see which available themes they can run.

    Another option to consider is MetaMorph. It is a themeing tool that does much of the dirty work for you, but again, you should look further into it here on the forums because some MetaMorph themes only work with certain ROMs, etc.
