    I will preface this post with the fact that I am new to most of this. However, I am finding that a lot of what's on the repository is unable to be installed on 9.8. Am I the only one having this issue? I did a Nandroid install of 9.8 and installed nextheme through sprecovery as well as Droid fonts, quickoffice and a new boot theme. I cannot however install Droid wallpapers, any type of HTC keyboard (which I really want). Help a brother out, especially on the htc keyboard thing...would love to have that keyboard back. I know I could probably re-install ROM Manager and reflash new recovery and get it that way, but pita in my opinion.

    thanks,
    Alan

    *Edit - figured out keyboard - still need help on others.
