    using rom manager you have to bootstrap recover then reboot into recovery(should be the option right above it).

    Also all ROMS and THEMES are close to installing but the forum where you got them should tell you.

    EXAMPLES:

    black glass theme install reboot into recovery. Clear cache then Install zip from sd card . then choose file then reboot when it's done

    to install rubix ROMS

    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:
    Open DroidXBootstrapper
    Bootstrap Recovery
    Reboot Recovery
    Nandroid Backup (Just in case you don't want to keep my rom or something goes wrong)
    Wipe Data/Cache
    Mount System (in the script of installing you do not have to do this for rubix. but other roms you do have to. I do it anyways cause you will brick if step is missed)
    Install Zip From SDCard
    Select rubiXBlurry0.3.zip
    Select Yes
    Reboot System
    Enjoy


    AGAIN read the forum for what one you want. installing theme is different then ROM.

    SBF is the file to go 100% back. I would refer to it as the STOCK with no root OS for system. It has a different way to load to droid vs loading a ROM. You only flash SBF if you brick your phone. Before messing with ROMS i would highly recommed learning how to flash SBF in case you do happen to brick then you can get out of it quickly

    Remember also do backups.. Too many is better then none.

    i have a question. i have rubix 1.6, apex 1.0, and chevys ssx rom all backed up on my phone(rom manager). is switching back and forth between the different roms as simple as restoring from backups in rom manager, or do i need to wipe and start over every time?

    also wipe before restoring to a backup. Also always wipe before installing new ROM
