    Decided to finally root my OG Droid, and the first custom ROM I decided to try is Cyanogenmod (6.1.2). I just have a few questions that I'm sure someone can answer (or at least point me in the right direction).

    -In order to apply themes, do I need to repeat the whole update.zip process? I see theres a custom theme option under "UI Tweaks" settings sub-menu, but applying them well...doesn't apply them. Do I have to do the first process before I can switch quickly between them via this menu?

    -Alot of my apps aren't appearing (Calorie Counter, Angry Birds, Weather Channel, probably others) either in my drawer or the market. How do I get these apps, as well as the new market?

    -Is there a way to eliminate the transparency effect when I pull down the notification tab?




    Thanks for any answers

    What new market? The one with the 15-minute return window? Why would you want that? :)

    As for apps like Angry Birds not appearing, I can't tell you what's causing that. All my apps appear. Maybe you should clear the data and cache in the app manager for the Market?

    1st question---you can apply themes via the update.zip process only if they're compatible with the rom you're on. you don't have to wipe data and cache, but always make a back up using rom manager or clockworkmod recovery.

    on cyanogenmod 7 series/nightly builds they have a theme chooser which makes it much simpler.


    2nd question---go on cyanogenmod.com and read what other people are saying about the build you're on. they usually have fixes posted.

    3rd question--yes in the cyanogenmod6 you can find all the user interface tweaks in the cyanogenmod settings which is located in your original settings. there's one for the pulldown bar and notification bar where you can change the alpha (transparency). sometimes you have reboot to see the changes.

    I'll give these both a shot, thanks guys.

    Checked out the CM site/forum, thanks alot. So is a theme applied on top of my current ROM (not unlike an ADW theme), or is it an entirely new ROM I need to flash?

    Yes themes are installed over your rom. Just install via clockwork or sprecovery and do not wipe data/cache, just be sure to make a nandroid back up before doing so.
