    I've tried all that! I'm going to try going back to the normal unthemed FRF84B and see if I can work from there.

    Got it!!

    I just did a factory wipe and went back to the normal FRF84B and then did the same and went to BBv4 and then did it again and renamed this update.zip and put it on the root of the SDCard and used CW (power+X) to install.

    It was daunting (aka annoying) but it worked. I must have had something that installed or was doing something the wrong way before.

    Sweet, glad you got it to work!
    I too have issues at times installing themes (usually because of ROM Manager issues) but when I do a theme, I ALWAYS do it over a completely fresh install of a ROM (stock theme).
    Sometimes the apks. will have issues/conflicts with other things already installed. It shouldn't matter, but even the /data/ folder seems to mess with things.

    Anyway, enjoy and Happy 4th! :)

    cant get carls to work with sprecovery.
    im probably doing it wrong. but the readme sucks. lol.

    i hate that everyone automatically thinks "oh well u should just know how to do it"

    i put the theme on my SDcard and renamed it to update. then tried to just update from zip file on sdcard through sprecovery. but update kept aborting

    so i gave up.

    i also cant move the bootanimation files to ANY of the places it says to on the readme file with ASTRO file viewer. it just wont allow me to.

    i think i give up.

    I was hoping to grab the wallpaper png from carlz28's zip file. I can add jpegs as wallpaper, but unfortunately I have no idea what to do with the png file to make it the wallpaper.

    which theme are you talking about? for carlz28's theme, you need to extract the provided zip. within that, you will find a theme.zip.

    if you're using sprecovery, rename that to update.zip and install it as you would any update.zip.

    if you're using clockworkmod, install it as is.

    the other items included in the provided zip is a boot animation and other extras.

    what is the UD FroYo extreme base? Carlz28 works with FRF57, and Roberj's works with FRF84b.

    roberj13 zip file should install just fine with either sprecovery or clockworkmod. just rename to update.zip for sprecovery.

    Will Roberj's theme work with Sapphire 0.7.0? I'm feeling really patriotic:)

    I get a bad download everytime I try to download roberj13 submission. As if it is not complete.

    Just copy the png to your SD card. Then long-press and bring up the wallpaper menus. Select gallery. Once in there, navigate to where you put it on your SD card) You may have to reboot before trying to install the wallpaper however. Sometimes gallery doesn't update 'live'...not sure why it does this. I've run into this problem a few times. Reboot fixes it. Allows the reading of SD card (and to create thumbnails of newly added pictures)
    There is no issue with using pngs as a wallpaper. Actually, its probably better as there is no banding/pixelating issues with pngs.

    As for anybody else's problems....remember, this is a theme. Many changes to icons have been made, but also some changes to the framework-res.apk as well.
    When testing this theme, I did so over a completely stock ROM/theme (FRF57). You may or may not have changes done to other files that need to stay the way they are in order for certain features.
    My files installed properly over Bugless Beastv.4 and Jrummy's newest ROM (haven't tried it on ChevyNo1's ROM though).
    So it should work for you as well.
    With that said, installing on top of another 'already installed theme' is not recommended.

    To those having issues downloading the themes, a few suggestions:
    At all possibilities, please download over wifi or onto your computer first (then transfer to SD card).
    Make sure your download doesn't get interrupted..i.e a text message or phone call, etc.
    This seems to be an issue for lots of people (interruptions).

    Again, I have to restate that this was tested on stock themes/ROMs first.
    I haven't tried on top of other themes (as that's not the best practice anyway).

    Just to note, I downloaded both my theme and roberj13's theme from the links provided and they both installed fine for me.

    Maybe it's an issue with downloading from DroidForums.net that some are having.
    If so, you can try from my own server linked below.
    Mods, feel free to add this link to the OP
