    Cannot install themed ROM!

    I want to download the Daiquiri Ice Flavored (Cyan) theme {i think thats the name} from the Kangerade Customizer in ROM Manager. It downloads, but every time i try to install it, it says "(bad). installation aborted." this has happened 4 times.... with the same file. whats weird is that i used the customizer to get some things from it yesterday (not a themed ROM) and it worked perfect.. what the heck is going on now?

    Device is a Moto Droid (VZW), running Froyo 2.2 overclocked kernel.

    Sounds like you got a bad download.

    Go into ROM Manager, use the menu button to select clear download cache. Then when you select download, a new, fresh program will be downloaded. Otherwise, it just keeps trying to load the one that is bad.

    Hope that helps

    I've tried that twice, with the same result... maybe I should DL the archive through wifi, because my 3G sucks here and punks out quite often -_-

    Yes, anytime you download large files use wifi. Give it a try. If you are not successful, then go into RM, scroll down to "Flash Alternative Recovery" and flash SPRecovery. Next, go the to forum or the Cyanogen forum and download the theme and flash via SPR.

    FYI his themes will not work on the Froyo build. To get the themed look you need to download his themed Froyo ROM itself. I'm not sure I'm understanding what you saying is why I mention this.

    personally I'd just download it via you comp using the link he has in the OP then transfer it to your sdcard and reboot into recovery to install it.

    Re: Cannot install themed ROM!

    I got it! I let it download around 7am (over 3G lol), and it only took about 15min! Successful install.

    And yes, thats what I downloaded. The Cyan themed ROM. Lol. I love it

    But I still have battery issues, even with ChevyNo1's ultralow voltage kernel o.O

    Congrats on getting it going.

    However the battery thing is odd if I must say so. It's got to be something with the kernel or an app you have installed. Currently I am running the exact same ROM as I just did it yesterday. I have not however install any kernel and am just using the stock one in the ROM and I have setCPU at 800Mhz. Threw it on the charger last night so it was fully charged this am. Took it off the charger at 5:45am and it is now 3:15pm and with light usage as I've been busy today it is sitting at 80%.

    Re: Cannot install themed ROM!

    Hmm.... my kernel is 250mHz-1.25gHz, but I guess I'll try leaving SetCPU on 800mHz ondemand for the day. Hopefully that will have better results.

    I'll keep you posted on it!

    Yea I'd for sure try that out and see what you get. FYI per my comment from yesterday I still have not had to charge as of right now. However it is at 10% now that I just looked. Again it was a light day of use yesterday for data services for me but I did have a few long calls and a boatload of Gtalk & txt msgs going. That said I'm just under 30hrs on a full charge with it set at 800/550, and my sleep/standby is set at 250/125

    Re: Cannot install themed ROM!

    Nice...... hmm. Once I get to a full charge, I'm switching SetCPU to 800-550mHz...... wait, actually, I'm going to change my kernel. Because my lowest slot is 250mHz, and not 125mHz, like yours -_- which are you using? Or are you not using autodetected speeds in SetCPU?
