    So I successfully rooted to Sapphire 1.0 and applied a custom theme to the phone. Everything works great, but the them kinda sucks.

    Wanted to put a different theme on the phone and for some reason the update.zip file won't install in SP. Any reason why my new theme is aborting the install? Tried ClockWork as well. Tried wiping cache.

    If anyone knows an easy way of switching themes, please, do tell. :)

    Thanks!

    Try downloading the update.zip again, you may have gotten a bad download ...

    I ran that one for a while too; very nice :biggrin:

    Like the above post said, flash to that older recovery mode in RM and then try it.

    Negative. Still not working. It's weird, you see the .zip extracting in ClockWork but no update applies. Don't get it all.

    RM has been giving me a hell of a time as well lately; even to make back ups. I've been flashing alternate recovery 2 or 3 times, then flashing older recoveries. Eventually it'll work for me but the process is extremely frustrating!!!
    The only recommendation I have is to stay at it with RM ... but it is strange that SPR isn't working either ...

    I mean, I'm not suppose to wipe it clean to install a new theme on top of another theme, right? Tried following the process on the Sapphire site, but that was a no go. Damnit.

    You need to flash the "stock" theme posted on the sapphire wiki site first, to get the rom back to stock. Then you should be able to flash another theme.

    I did this when going from the Droid X theme to the Black Bar theme.

    Edit: This is posted on the wiki:

    With this release, we have done away with the “stock” theme in favor of just re-applying the provided update/gapp update without wiping data.

    That was the other thing, I couldn't find the Stock Theme on their site for Sapphire 1.0. Know where that is?

    Refer to their wiki site (link above in Edit). They said they don't recommend flashing to the stock theme between theme changes anymore. Flash the update/gapps file instead.

    You downloading the corresponding theme? Make sure it's the correct one. I'm not trying to talk crap, as I have made this mistake before.
