    Yes, I'm sad...and probably can't search..

    Once I download a ROM with a certain theme how can I easily switch between a couple of the themes and/or fonts and see which ones I like the most?

    1) Download the various themes you want to try

    2) Reboot into recovery mode and make a nandroid backup

    3) Apply one of the themes the same way you applied the original ROM

    4) Reboot and check out the theme

    5) Reboot to recovery mode and restore the nandroid backup

    6) Go to step 3 until happy

    Except I use ROM Manager (paid edition). So you are saying I can download just the theme itself? Or is the theme and ROM embedded together?

    I can use an update.zip or whatever just wasn't sure I could apply a "theme only".

    Sometimes they are packaged together and sometimes the theme is by itself. As long as the theme was done for the same ROM you are using, it will not matter.

    I forgot to mention, most folks would recommend clearing the cache before rebooting.
