    ****DISCLAIMER***
    YOU USE THIS THEME AT YOUR OWN RISK. FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND YOUR PHONE'S OPERATING SYSTEM AND APPLICATIONS WHICH MAKE THIS THEME POSSIBLE TO INSTALL, CAN HAVE A POTENTIAL NEGATIVE EFFECT WHICH MAY BE IRREVERSIBLE!
    YOU SHALL HOLD NEITHER ME, NOR DROIDFORUMS.NET AND/OR THEIR AFFILIATES RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MISUSE OR IMPROPER INSTALLATION PROCEDURES



    Now that the legal mumbo-jumbo is disclosed.....

    I bring to you the Executive Series theme for your MOTOROLA DROID 1 Android device.
    An elegant executive style theme. Brushed metal accents along with gloss, wood trim and leather influences. Some icons from my previous themes have been re-used with different color schemes to match this high level of elegance.

    I have removed the stock themed keyboard for this theme as the Multi-Touch keyboard was having some issues during my testing. I may add it back in later if I can transfer some images and get the layout to work properly.

    INSTALLATIONS OF THEME: PLEASE READ BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL

    Some users have issues with FC's (force closes) when applying themes that have been edited from their stock looks.
    This can be a result of many things, but is usually a /data/data/ issue and/or conflict with applications.
    I have set up a procedure/installation method that will work every time IF you follow the steps exactly as stated.
    This method is generally agreed upon by most experienced users and themers to be the best practice when installing themes for you specific ROM.

    Steps to follow:
    1. First and foremost, make sure you have all of the current/updated files to install a ROM and theme on your SD card.
    2. WIPE, WIPE, WIPE! Wipe everything on your phone. This includes the data, cache, system and boot partitions. You can do this in your recovery menu.
    3. Install your ROM.zip
    4. Install your g_apps.zip
    5. REBOOT your phone and sign-in to Google. Once signed in, complete the set-up process and allow the sync to finish.
    6. WAIT WAIT WAIT! Wait for ALL your apps to restore from the market. Do not do anything else until your applications have restored! For most people, the apps will restore without a problem. Length of time will vary depending on your connection speed (3G or wi-fi). If your apps do not restore, then you have an issue with the ROM and not the theme.
    7. Once your apps have restored, sign-in to any of them that need to be set-up. Example: Pandora, or Google Voice, etc.
    8. Now that your phone is all set up, you're good to go, right? Well, if you like Vanilla Android, then I guess so. But now you want something cooler on your phone.
    9. Next, complete a FULL NANDROID back up! Why? because if something goes wrong with the theme, you can always go back to stock and not have to re-install the enitire ROM.
    10. Once your NANDROID BACKUP is complete, reboot your phone.
    11. Now, boot into recovery. Do this by powering down your phone. Slide open your keyboard and hold the "X" button down, then hold the power button down. Keep holding down until you enter the recovery menu.
    12. Install theme.
    13. Reboot phone.
    14. I present to you, your newly themed phone!

    Remember, this method is tried and true. Failure to follow these steps, or performing of steps in a different order can/will result in problems for you.
    This isn't meant to berate or make fun of anyone, regardless of user experience level. This is meant to make sure you follow a good practice when installing themes
    If you don't follow these steps to a "T", I can offer you no help or support as I will have no clue what went wrong in the process.
    Please make sure you followed these steps BEFORE you report any issues with the theme :) It'll save me, and more importantly, you, headaches in the long run.

    These themes are ClockworkMod AND SPRecovery compatible.

    Yeah when I put cytown in my rom for a theme it was f.c when I hanup calls and when I declined them. That why I put the stock phone and contacts in the rom. I may work on that for next release but just like bowers asked if its cytown then that would def b why.

    I grabbed the phone from the ROM. Re-tested it and now appears to be working.
    I think when I ported it I used thebowers theme file, but then realized something didn't take so I ported it manually and re-upped the file.
    All seems to be okay now.

    :p

    I should have blamed it on myself. I don't fully trust the Theme Porter app. Sucks that only images get transferred.

    Thanks for the quick fix guys. I like both themes and was disappointed that I wasn't able to run either of them because of the phone issue. Good work.
