    I might have to go back to stock. I don't like the lockscreen, notification bar, notification pulldown, and the keyboard. Is there anyway to retheme those or anything? I'm really just looking for something simple. Thanks.

    Wow darkslide is solid..but you might want to look into fission 2.5.7 its an aosp build and its stock froyo or gingerbread. From its own rom manager you can add many additional features and goodies as you please..oh and its fusion build adds blur. Have fun:)..

    Changing themes is much easier than changing roms, esp if the only thing you don't like is from a visual standpoint...

    I can't seem to find any themes for darkslide though. Any suggestions on where to look?

    Do you have any idea how to change the notification bar, lockscreen, and boot logo?

    My suggestion, pick a new ROM....? People have applied other themes, Tron for example, but always switch back. Why you ask? Cause there is no themed ROM out there more complete than Darkslide. If you don't like the lockscreen, turn it off. Or install the invisible one they provide. You can change the keyboard to any of the 5 they provide. I'm having a real hard time believing you can't find something that works for you.

    As for the notification bar....there are all kind of people posting options for that over at the DS thread at MDW.

    And I have have made hundreds of boot logo's for people in the hacks section here, check it out. The options are infinite :)

    Boot logo's here>>>http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-hacks/91707-droid-x-custom-boot-logo-ill-create.html

    Here's the keyboard I use right now, love it!

    This is a great rom, and it was no problem to switch out the keyboard.

    What exactly are you looking to change on the notifications bar? The color of the bar, the icons on it, color of clock?

    I find DS to be a great base to work off. Don't think you'll find a silver bullet of a ROM/theme, everyone has different tastes. IMO pick one that has some support and some staying power. I ran Apex before DS and considered trying Tranquility. Lots of people like to pat themselves on the back and say the ROM they run is the best. Ford vs Chevy - Eddie Van Halen vs Jimmy Page - my dad vs you dad - my ROM vs your ROM - whatever it's all opinion and a waste of time to argue over.

    After you get a good understanding of creating backups and restoring them look into using ninjamorph, metamorph, and or adb to change out the things you don't care for. Be patient, there's a lot of info out there to absorb, lots of mistakes to be made - it all builds experience and confidence.

    Yup, ninamorph... New project - navigate to system/framework & select the framework-res.apk to edit.

    It will unzip the file. Click the framework-resapk/res/drawable-hdpi/
    Scroll all the way down to status_bar_background.png, long press on it & choose edit. Drag the red, blue, or green sliders til you get a color of your liking. Hit menu button & save.

    If you want to replace, say battery icons from another theme, you need to have the theme you are copying from already unzipped in a folder on your sd card. Maybe just pull the icons out that you will be using (from in same folder structure as above - drawable-hdpi folder)

    When you are finished with all the icons you want to edit, back out to the main menu in ninjamorph & finish project. It will recompile.

    Yeah but darkslide is full of bloatware in the interior of the OS. Sure, you don't see it on the outside, but open up any task manager and see of the motorola crap running in the background slowing things up to a virtual crawl when having lots of apps open...

    LOL. You had some sort of problem with your install then. Darkslide is the fastest rom I've used so far. Not sure why you had issues.
