    U can use launcher pro are u talking theme or wallpaper. Launcher pro ads try one of those when your ready to rom try darkslide it is awesomely themed and better battery life among other things

    There is no Darth Vader on Darkslide. Take a look at the screen shots on the thread.

    It comes with a darkside of the moon android wallpaper or a green android wallpaper but you can change those otherwise its all black. Keyboard is a glossy black with smoking darkslide logo. Its pretty nice compared to stock

    Sorry I saw a screeen shot of a darkslide rom with Darth Vader and made an asssumption

    How do you change between roms??

    If I wanted flash the Darkslide ROM and then go back to the stock ROM or change to another one, how is this done?

    I believe there is a ROM called Liberty coming in a few days that I might also be interested in.

    switching between ROMs is just as easy as flashing the new ROM over top of it. one thing you have to keep an eye out for is your system version. you have to have a ROm built on the same system version your phone is running. if you grabbed the latest OTA update, you will be at 2.3.340, so you can only flash a ROM built from 2.3.340 or it will totally screw up your phone.

    once you get clockworkMod, make a backup of the stock ROM, this will save you the hastle of reflashing with RSD lite. but you can flash roms over top of other roms with no problems, but you usually have to wipe data/cache.

    there are tons of themes for every ROM out there. i personally didn't like darkslide as it was themed too "cartoony" for me. personally i have gummyjar 2.5 with galaxy s theme and it is awesome. i came from an original Droid so i HATED Blur, so this ROM was the best for me.

    just try out different ROMs. one will work better for you than another.

    you dont have to have a custom ROM to theme, but there are just a LOT more options with custom ROMs for themes.
