    You can have stock and just root in order to stay overclocked.

    The short answer: No. In order to overclock or modify system files (necessary for themes) you must be rooted

    Overclockong is no problem as that's kernel related, not ROM related. To truly run stock with a theme, you would need to install one of the OTA updates and modify framework-res.API and whatever else you want themed manually. Any "stock" ROM you install that's themed won't technically be stock. Kind of a catch 22 thing going on here...cause of you take a stock build and theme it then well...lol.

    I dunno...I've been at the hospital all day dealing with idiots so my mind is fried.
