    It's the Rom Manager app. There are no links just yet.

    I had the same problem - after I posted this I downloaded it and tried it too. Couldn't seem to get it to work. Do you have ROM Manager installed? I know it's a paid app but it is worth every cent! If you download the paid version of ROM Manager, go to download ROM > roberj13 > Blue Enery > then pick which Which ROM you're running. No need to select wipe or backup (unless of course you need to make a backup).
    I would highly recommend you get ROM Manager - it makes backing up, restoring and managing all your ROMS very easy.

    Worked great for me in Rom Manager (ClockworkMod). But then again I just rooted last night and downloaded BB v 0.4, then downloaded the theme this morning. So far loving it. Except I can't for the life of me read the battery icon.

    Seems like it hasn't been fully updated? Email and maps wasn't skinned and the battery icon was the regular battery with charge % on it instead of the little atom that I've seen in previous screenshots of it.

    Yeah, i think you'll need the paid version of RM to get this.

    I ran it for about 2 days then started noticing some apps weren't working right. Speed Test, Bookmarks for Dolphin browser, kept force closing. eBuddy would give me the force close box, but the the icon would show up in the notification bar and not be responsive. I also noticed this morning that JogTracker stopped right in the middle of my run (although I am not sure this is related to the theme or if it's a JogTracker issue). I flashed back to the stock SS4.5 and all these apps are working right again. I will recheck JogTracker tomorrow morning.

    So, you may want to hold off on the Blue Energy Theme for now - it may be a little buggy or it could just be me, who knows.

    Hmm, odd. I didn't notice anything weird, aside from not a lot of apps were themed.

    Although I use a frankenstein theme (a mix between the stock blue that comes with SS, Blue Energy, 928's Black Glass, and a bunch of my own edits. Maybe that's why.

    Yea I was stuck at the bootanimation when I applied it.
    For those who are interested, I've combined Blue Energy with the Smoked Glass theme that Chevy has for his ROM. It's basically BE with SS's status icons, phone dialer, notification pulldown, and a few things I've added myself.

    Yes, you need to be rooted with a ROM installed in order for a theme to work.

    Figured Id pop in here for a minute.

    Blue Energy was modified to work with Chevy's ROM.

    1. I've never had email themed and I haven't had maps themed in a long time due to some issues it was causing with updating when froyo came out.

    2. I am checking on the problems yank. Hopefully will have it sorted out soon. I will need to download the apps you mentioned however as I have none of them..lol

    3. Now that I am done with Alternate Dark, Blue Energy is going to be the first theme I go back through and update. EXTENSIVELY. This means almost every stock app will be themed, cleaner, etc. It will take a little bit of time obviously so a little bit of patience, but hopefully I can make BE better than it has ever been.

    How's that for a run on sentence....

    Thanks everyone!

    Excellent - I'm interested to see what you find out with those apps.
    As far as going back to BE (I think I asked this before on another thread but I can't remember the answer so, I apologize for asking it again) will Launcher Pro be on the agenda?
