    restore from a backup. That's the only way. when you install a theme the existing files on your device get overwritten.

    Some roms also have a stock theme that you can apply.

    You always need to create backup, once of the reasons is that.

    You can do a wipe and then install the new theme. Or you can flash the original Rom. THEN MAKE A BACKUP FOR THE FUTURE. Then load the new theme.

    The suggestion by coltzfan is a good one - that's the route I'd take. Obviously, in the future, make a backup *before* you experiment with a new rom. That way, you can easily put things back the way they were.
