    Okay, so basically I rooted my global, been experimenting with oc/uc and now I am very interested in getting into my first theme. So I am looking for all the info on getting them, installing them, using them, and also removing them. The more info I can get the better!

    P.s. I am wanting a black notification bar like crazy!!

    Basically, theme installs are just .zip files that you flash through Clockworkmod. All themes should have installation directions included with them. You can only use themes for whatever rom you are on though, for instance a liberty theme wont work on fission and vice versa. Just look around, theyre on here. To remove you have to either reflash the stock rom or sbf (very very easy to do).

    How would I do this? Just curious.

    I have droid 2 bootstrapper and have made a backup of it but is that an actual complete system backup? That I can use to go back to regular after flashing a theme or rom? A "nanoid" backup?

    Also, although my global is rooted, I am wanting to take the next step with customization. Basically I am curious if I can install a theme on my stock rom? One that has a black notification/drop down list? I am interested in this, and also learning about Roms backups and everything regarding these topics.

    Thanks.

    to my knowledge .. yes .. a nandroid backup is a full system back up .. ive got several on my phone ranging from regular out of the box stock rooted to fission 2.4.3 rom and themed .. and liberty 2.0.1 which i currently use the most .. as well as diet droid rom backed up .. unfortunately with my bad memory in my old age i have had to write down what each back up was since i learned the hard way that you just cant rename the back up .. lol... dont ask .. i think the bubbly hit me a lil too hard that day .. anyway .. keep asking questions and researching .. thats the only way to learn.. theres lots of intelligent people on this forum that are willing to help

    Huh, weird. I have renamed all of my nandroid backups. I did so after running into the problem of having about 5 and not remembering which was what. Everything seemed to work fine. Is there a reason you say you can't just rename them? Just curious.

    It changes the md5sum and then it fails when it tries to check it and its not the same.
