    Hello, So im new at this phone and am looking for a little help to get some stuff accomplished so im turning to the experts. I have a Samsung Fascinate that was just updated with the latest version of 2.2.1 released directly from Verizon Wireless via their OTA update. I love the OS i just want to be able to customize it a bit more and found a few themes i would like to download to it. It is not rooted or anything so im just looking for some direction as to what to do. I found some themes from this site and would like to load them to the phone if that's possible?

    Thank you

    You have to be rooted to flash an actual theme. The only way you can do it now is to get a launcher from the market, like launcher pro, adw ex, and get themes for them. But even that won't theme the status bar, just icons, animations, and wall paper

    I have launcher pro and its it just changes the way the icons line up and nothing with the color or anything like that. So is it possible to root the device with my current version of 2.2.1?

    Ok so not sure what happened here but i completed the steps you said above and all was going good. Tried to load a theme to the device and when it boots up it gets stuck at the samsung loading screen. Ive done a hard reset and gone back and redid the steps above and same problem....Where do i go from here?

    Did you wipe cache and dalvik before you flashed the theme? If so, it'll take about a good 5-7 minutes or so to boot up.

    Also, you have to make sure the theme is compatible with the rom you're running
