I am hoping to get some insightful information on roms and themes. I am a little new to all of this so bear with me if possible. I have rooted,4ever rooted my bionic. I also just installed TB, Root explorer and safestrap so I can have the recovery and the abilitly to flash themes, roms.. etc. My first question is, can you just install a theme or do you have to flash a theme on top of a specific rom.. assuming they are compatible?
When you run a Rom and/or theme, does it carry all of your current apps and programs along with it? I like the looks of some themes that are available but also want to keep the current functionality of my phone, current apps, etc. I did some searching but didn't find much along these lines but I thought I read a little while back that you don't want to install apps on a different rom..? It can create problems.
I just installed safestrap this morning so I haven't had much time to mess with it. Install was simple of course. In the safestrap app is the "install recovery" the starting process to creating a nandriod backup? I want to make sure I do that correctly first, before I starting flashing stuff.
I will probably have more questions along the way but I think this is a good start.
thanks in advance for any help.
