    So i'm rooted and using Liberty 1.0, and installed a Red Gingerbread theme, what is the process to change the ROM? or uninstall a theme?

    Do you have to do a backup and wipe everything everytime you go into recovery and change something.

    FYI i have a Droid 2
    If anyone can help that would be awesome! thanks.

    Themes can be changed through the Liberty Toolbox and do not require a backup/data wipe. A theme change may require a cache wipe, but that will be done automatically if you change the theme via the Liberty Toolbox.

    If you change ROMs then a backup/wipe is almost always necessary.

    Most ROMs come with installation instructions, the instructions for changing a ROM are the same as installing one.

    Of course Liberty ROM is probably the best one I have seen (at least for the X). I don't see any reason why I would use a ROM other than Liberty.

    Ok thanks! That helps a lot. So i,m still wondering, I downloaded a liberty blue theme I guess you could call it, and had to install in recovery, when I change a theme through liberty toolbox, some of the blue theme is still there. Is there a way to uninstall things?

    My suggestion would be.

    Re-install the default theme, then install the other theme you want to use.

    I would presonally recommend the WatermarkD theme, it is excellent.
