    Ok so i have finally got around to rooting my Motorla Droid but now i am completely lost on how to install a theme (one of the main reasons i rooted my phone to begin with).
    I want to install the Indigo Blue Theme: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-themes/58225-indigo-blue-theme-ud-bb-here-22.html
    And see that there is more then one link to install? Do i have to choose a certain one, afterall there seems to be the UD, BB, or SS links that it says to boot from recovery. Do i just put them on my droid from my desktop and then attempt to install it?
    My phone is pretty much bone stock so do i need to get any other apps to install the new theme after i have rooted my droid?
    Please someone help, i want to customize my droid so i can laugh at all my co workers i-phones since they all look the same.
    Thanks
    Also should i save links to my phone open it take out the folders and place them on my phone or just take the entire file over to my droid?

    What rom do you have installed? The rom would govern which theme (BB, UD or SS) you need to download. If your rom isn't one of the ones that Cuttalott has ported his theme to, then I'm afraid you're not going to be able to install the Indiglo Blue theme.

    Yes, in order to access one of the themes in this section, you need to have one of the major roms* installed on your phone. As to how to install a rom, try this video - Video: Installing a Custom ROM Using SPRecovery | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog It will walk you through the installation process.

    * By this, I mean am established rom like Buggless Beast, Ultimate Droid, Simply Stunning or Succulant Desire, to name a few.

    Hope this helps!

    Make sure the theme is compatible with the ROM you are using. Not all themes work for each ROM.

    First, make sure that you have BB 0.4 installed, and not an earlier version. If you do then just copy the theme to the root of your SD card, rename it "update.zip" without the quotation marks, and boot into SPRecovery. Once there, you install it the same way that you did with the rom.

    If you run into problems, come back here and one of us will walk you through it, but you SHOULDN'T have any. The installation process is identical to the way you install a rom.
