    I would like to change the theme for ShadowRom 0.2.1, from DropTheme to something different (havent decided and nothing against DropTheme, i just want to try something new)

    My question is, do I need to wipe? I would like not to obviously, but if I have to I will. Can I reinstall vanilla ShadowRom without wiping and then reinstall another theme or will that cause probs, also can I Nandroid, wipe, reinstall, theme and then Advance Nandroid data back? What would be the easiest without wiping, if that is possible I suppose is my question.

    Thanks! Love the ROM btw, first time I have tried ShadowRom and I love it so far!

    Couple things....

    The best way to install a theme is to install it over a vanilla ROM. For example, if the Drop Theme has Camera.apk themed but Cold Fusion does not, if you install the Cold Fusion over the Drop theme, your phone will be Cold Fusion with a Drop Theme Camera.

    You don't have to wipe when going from theme to theme though. I hardly wipe. The only time I do is if things start getting quirky. Other than that, I flash about 2-3 ROMs and about the same amount of themes daily.
