    I have read the posts and still can not get this installed. I mount my phone.....drop this file in..then unmount go to root explorer and look for this file to install...but cant find it to install it.
    What am i doing wrong

    Use root explorer, long press on the file and select either copy or cut. Then browse to /system/app/ , click up in the top right hand corner to change to RW, and long press to paste the file. Long press on the file you just pasted, and change the permissions to RW- R-- R--

    It only shows one backup ....should i wipe clean before trying it again as it still hung after restoring a few mins ago????

    I also get sd-ext.img not found skipping restore of /sd-exd.
    then it says restore complete

    the sd-ext is for ap2sd stuff dont worry about that. If you didnt make a backup before you tried the theme your best bet is to just reflash the ROM and start over.

    Yes, make a backup. You should NEVER make any modifications to your Droid, i.e., changing your ROM, adding a theme, changing the kernel, etc. without first making a Nandroid backup just in case something goes wrong.
