    guys,

    My names DOC and im a newb to the droid community. I have had a several Iphones and got tired of them. I have decided to try out droid for all of the customization with them.

    I have a new Incredible and would very much like to try some of the themes that are posted on here.

    I had read the FAQS sections and from what i can get from it is that in order to apply these themes, you must first root your phone. Am I correct?

    Also, before i do any such thing, of course i need to back up my phone, but all the threads i have read, people are doing so with PC's but i'm a mac guy and have a macbook pro.

    Can someone please school me on the basics on what I need to do to apply a new theme?

    Welcome to the forum. We have a section dedicated to the Incredible where I believe you can find all the answers you need on how to root your phone and how to install the ROM of your choice. To get there, click on the Forum tab at the top of the page, scroll down until you see the Incredible section then read and have fun. There are also a lot of very knowledgeable folks there that can answer any and all of your questions.
