    Can I get the BB NexTheme without wiping?

    I'm using BB 1.1 Smoked Glass theme right now and I could use a different look. Is there a way I can get the Nextheme without wiping my data?

    hm, not exactly sure... most of it will probably be fine, but if anything is themed in smoked glass that isnt theme in nextheme, it will stay themed as smoked glass for sure. not sure if that helps, but just make a nandroid backup and give it a shot..

    You should be able to download the update.zip version of nextheme from the BB 1.1 rom post.

    [ROM STABLE] Bugless Beast V1.1 Android 2.1 ESE81
    NexTheme (by Manup456)

    You may have to add a few applications back to your home screen after, but you shouldn't need to wipe

    Edit: like bill said above. If nextheme doesn't theme something that smoked glass did you may end up with a few smoked glass themed things. Remember to make a backup ;-)

    NOT a good idea to apply one them over another. If you can find an update.zip for the stock theme, you could apply that before applying the nextheme. This is a good example of why it's convenient to have a nandroid of stock android before you have applied any themes.

    Yeah I have several nandroid backups, one I just used coming back from Jrummy froyo rom. So it seems that if I want the nextheme, I should just go into rom manager an download the nextheme Bugless Beast rom there and install as I did for the smoked glass rom. I guess I have to wipe though cause installing one rom over another isn't a smart idea?

    Installing one ROM over another isn't a good idea and installing one theme over another isn't either. You MAY get away with it, but it is much more likely that some problems will eventually pop up.

    Then what do people do who switch between roms a lot do? Seems a lot of people often use different roms.

    I always wipe unless I am just updating to a newer version of the same ROM. If you're on Bugless Beast version 0.1 and want to go to 0.2, you don't need to wipe. If you're coming from a Cyanogen ROM and want to use Chevy's newest 2.2 ROM, you would have to wipe. I usually stick with a single dev and only update when they release something new. With 2.2 just leaking out, many of us are trying multiple dev's ROMs. I bet I have wiped 4 different times since 2.2 was released.

    they master the technique of getting their device re-setup : )

    I ALWAYS wipe the device and flash a lot of ROMS. what I usually do is just put the basics back on kernel/set-cpu and run it for a while. If I like it I build it if not.....whoosh!!!!! it's gone

    Oh alright, so as long as I wipe data/cache before I install a new rom, then I'll be good? That was my understanding, I think I just got a little confused on a couple posts.
