    I've got Chrome theme on 2.5....only problem is I can't install any other themes now. Tried Luna and Smoked....really don't want to wipe...didn't with chrome.

    You should not need to wipe when installing a theme

    What steps are you taking to install? Are you receiving errors?

    using clockwork...no errors. Really strange. This is the first theme that has done it.

    This is strange. I'm not fluent with CW so my question may not be correct but do you see that the install completes?

    Have you tried redownloading the theme?

    RM allows you to download themes so are you selecting one that is compatible with the rom?

    Yes...Usually I'll download using my laptop and drag to root and install through root manager.

    I may be wrong but I thought RM allowed you to download roms, themes, and kernels onto your phone then install. Additionally, I thought that each rom had a section of compatible themes

    just on the premium version. I tried premium, but didn't see enough difference. I'll usually just grab the rom or theme from here.

    Thanks for the clarification. Are you sure the theme and rom are compatible?

    Are you sure that there is only one ".zip" and only one update.zip file on your SD card?

    Hey.. ask me next time :) I made it.

    DO NOT WIPE.

    my themes take up the remaining memory (almost) and I theme random apps no one else does. Red and Gold seem to be ok on this but chrome is a different beast.

    What you need to do is... reinstall UD 2.5 without wiping anything. let the phone reboot. you will see you have a stock theme and have not lost any data.

    NOW.. you can install any theme you wish.

    Actually, if you just use the Free memory script, you'll be able to flash the theme.

    What's happening is your system/app is full and during the flash, it is running out of space and aborting. Make sure you have enough space in system for the new theme to take.
