    Yes, a theme could include a new lock screen, but not necessarily.

    Two very active developers for the D2 right now are Motaboy (ROMs - see his post on 2.4.5 in this forum) and 928Droid (see the Themes section - he has his own sub-forum with a Droid 2 thread there.

    Motaboy ROMs come in a range of flavors that includes majority of "bloatware/blur" removed.

    928Droids themes tend to be based on stock releases, but they are beautiful themes.

    I hate to bring this up but I feel it does need to be said often. Rooting does void the warranty. Now chances are that someone (I almost said we but I can't) will be able to bail you out if something goes wrong. Just want you to be aware.
