    Sorry I did not get back to you quicker. Did you purchase the premium version?

    I was trying to assess if you had Rom manager or SPRecovery.

    Do you have a file manager. like Astro, installed? If not you can get it from the market or you can mount your phone and view the SD card via your computer.

    I need to know if you see files named:

    nandroid
    ClockWorkrecoverymod

    recovery-99.9-3
    Forgive your enemies it messes with their minds!

    I prefer to use SRP to install roms, themes and kernels so I'm not the best with Rom Manager but I believe that the free version will only allow you to install the Cyanogen rom. If you want to use Rom Manager to install other roms you need to purchase the premium version.


    You can install SPR with Rom Manager.

    What rom do you want to install?

    SRP is a recovery system similar to ClockWork.

    The only way I know how to remove the current theme it is to install a backup that did not contain the theme or install the same or new rom.

    If you decide to install a new rom make a backup first.

    Ok i think I am starting to understand the droid.

    The roms is a modified OS correct? You have to use the right themes with the modified rom correct?

    Its nothing like the blackberry when you just download the OTA and apply a theme/skin. The rom gets modified no as simple as applying a theme/skin?

    I played around with it some, found the rom that was being used and applied another skin for it. Is it common to lose all apps, and data like messages etc when applying a new rom.

    I first made a back up of what I have, I tried the beast rom and lost all settings and apps. So i reverted back to the one i was currently using.

    1.Yes a Rom is a modified OS.
    2.Certain themes only work with certain roms. True.
    3.It is not as simple as applying a theme.
    4.You will loose all data only if you wipe the data and cache first, but you can use a backup software like titanium backup.
    5. If you don't wipe data and cache you will still have all your apps. Though some roms require you wipe first before applying a new Rom. In that case see 4. For info on backup software.

    Well.... I'm still a NOOBIE but I'm learning that I'm a flashaholic lol. I have flashed a couple, definitely even close to as many as most the people on here! But I really like ChevyNo1 SS 4.8 which comes with a simple blue theme, which is actually really sweet. Now I am using Lithium Mod and it has a really good speed/battery life combination.

    ChevyNo1 Simply Stunning 4.8 (The link is broken but post #285 has the right link)

    SS 4.8 - More Statusbar Options - Music Controls Incl. BT

    Lithium Mod link to themes.... the ROM comes with the theme...

    [ROM] Lithium Mod - Source built awesomeness! Themes galore!
