    First off, I want to say thanks to everyone who contributes their expertise and advice in this forum. I finally rooted and upgraded to froyo last night after months and months of waiting for Samsung. Just couldn't take it anymore. You guys helped me make a decision that I wish I would have made a long time ago. Anyways, I went the easy route and used the all-in-one debloated froyo+root+clockworkmod using odin. Now I want to try some custom themes. I have searched all over this forum and other forums trying to find out how exactly you go about it, butI feel more confused now with all the different instructions I've been reading. Any simple, straightforward help you guys could give me? Thanks and you guys rock!

    Download the theme u want and copy it directly to your sd card. Boot into recovery and go down to install from sd card then the next screen go down to choose zip. Find the theme and install it.

    Thanks Jerome! Just one question, do I need to wipe cache first?

    Correct me if I am wrong but when it comes to themes, flash away. No wipe needed.

    I tend to only run nitro's themes and they play well together, but I do agree that wiping cache and dalvik are easy and quick.
