    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.

    Yes, made sure it was the right one. But I can't even go back to the stock theme. So frustrating.

    If I were in this situation,

    1. I would open Rom Manager and flash the new Clockwork 2.5.0.1. That will mean you do not have to rename the file. (note: all of the recent Clockwork files have a bug that will on some Droids cause them to reboot while selecting options. If this happens to you, immediately press and hold X key until it reboots into Clockwork. It will function properly after this reboot.)
    2. I would redownload the file on my PC
    3. I would put the new download on the root of my sdcard.
    4. Boot into Clockwork and select install zip file from sdcard
    5. Select zip file on sdcard

    Good luck.

    Wooooooo!

    So I got it working! And first let me say that Sapphire FLIES! Along with the Alternate Dark Theme. I mean, wow, what a difference...

    So when I first rooted the phone to Sapphire I was wondering why it was so easy installing the update.zip's and stuff, and then why I wasn't able to install different themes.

    Ready for it? I was using a PC for doing the initial rooting and I used the MAC to try and put the zip files on the phone. That was the problem. Using a MAC. I knew something wasn't right. I'm MAC heavy cause of all the video editing I do, so I said, ya know, might as well boot in PC to see if it works that way and it did.

    Damn you MAC, and thank you PC. haha

    Thanks everyone for the help. Now ya know. And this all worked in the latest ClockWork.
