    i just rooted my moto droid 1 and i installed the ultimate droid rom. i was wondering if i could have the notification bar like the lithium mod and succulent 7 or do i have to install those or a different theme? and what is the difference between roms and themes?

    You would have to find a theme that gave you the same look that you get with those ROMS in order to have it for UD.

    A rom is basically the operating system for the phone with changes here and there.

    a theme simply changes the way the phone looks

    I've tried them all and operationally I find very minor differences. I would suggest just trying a few (MAKING BACKUPS BEFORE YOU CHANGE ANYTHING!!) and see which ones work best for you on your phone. If the rom is good for you, then theme it (after making a backup).

    Good luck and enjoy.

    thanks.
    and one last question, is it hard to make your own theme or rom to have complete customization on your phone?

    Look around before deciding you want to try doing what whole teams have a hard time doing. Theming is a lot easier.
