    Not sure if this specific question has been asked. I did go back quite some time and could not find anything. I have recently rooted and ROMed back and forth between the Sholes updates and Smoked Glass Themed ROM. My questions is this:

    I like the features of the Sholes ROM, but love the graphics and a few items (Swype) keyboard of the Smoke Glass theme. Is there a way to combine some of these items?

    You're going to want to get familiar with the Android SDK.
    All the rom's are compatible with each other since they all deox, but you'll need to download each ROM, copy the apps you want from each, then use ADB to push them onto your phone.
    Just search for installing ADK, there's plenty of posts on how to get started.

    Sholes has smoked glass theme available in 2.0.3 so thats part of the answer
    Then you would follow these instructions to get swype on your sholesmod after install is complete:

    1. Download swype from http://www.androidcentral.com/download-beta-version-swype-android

    2. From the adb shell type the command adb install <the file you downloaded>

    3. Enjoy your SholesMod v 2.0.3 with smoked glass themes (assuming you chose the theme in the installer) and swype keyboard.

    you can just install most apk's on another rom (like swype), but you cant combine whatever you want wherever you want, but you can add most apks to one

    Yeah why couldn't he just install the apk instead of making it all complicated with commands? Especially with Swype...you can download Swype in this forum and all over the place...
