    Just tried this on my milestone with the glass theme. It works and looks really good on my screen.

    I trying to understand the poster above saying it would be in german. The files the themes change have no text anyway besides your carrier in the pull down.

    John were helping the community out. We should start converting all of the guides for this forum.

    Intruda< yes I think the first thing that needs to be done is have a sticky with OpenRecovery from fufu... with the explanations on how this OpenRecovery works...:)

    and you don't even need a pc or mac to change you themes or anything for that matter
    it just works.... meaning if I download a theme I drop it on my Dropbox and I sync it with my stone and then just RootExplorer to drop it in the OpenRecovery folder...

    Sorry my bad..For some reason my default language was in German when I restarted the phone.
    However I have one more problem and I dont think anyone's run into it yet
    The themes dont seem to work if you have app2sd installed from before-hand.With or without open recovery
    I tried installing with the "install without apps" option too.All I get is an endless loop of the startup animation.
    Removing the theme with OpenRecovery doesnt help either.I have to perform a Nandroid backup every single time

    Do you or John have app2sd installed?

    I can't find anything similar on the android-hilfe forums either

    I actually dont use App2sd, so I cant help with that. I would think that as long as you put the theme file, in the theme folder under open recovery it should work. Have you tried to re-download the theme and which one are you using? If the update.zip file works that installed on the sd card, the theme file should work. Just to test use glass theme from FUFU and see if that installs.

    I will use this glasstheme for example:
    http://droid.fufus-world.de/downloads/glasstheme14rc.zip

    When you download this file there will be a glasstheme folder and a glasstheme.sh file. Do not put the glasstheme.sh file on your sd card.

    Place the file in /SDCARD/OpenRecovery/Themes/Glasstheme(FOLDER)

    Make sure your not installing the .SH FILE

    Let me know if this helps. Delete any theme files you've downloaded/installed and start fresh with the above download.

    Nope I don't use app2sd I don't need it...I think that would be the reason your having problems..

    Quick update.
    The themes work from OpenRecovery only when I chose the "Install theme without apps" option.
    I think its a problem with app2sd after all :(
    Doesn't work with just the "Install theme" option.Have to do a Nandroid backup to restore my phone.
    Think this should be kept as a disclaimer on that forum,because I've seen no mention of it.
    Can anyone post a mirror for the AndroidGlass theme? I keep getting a 403 error when i try to download from Fufu's link
    Cheers!

    I've installed several of the themes from that site using the sh files with no issue, just copy the theme folder and the sh file to the root of your sd card. Reboot to open recovery, and adb shell, and /sdcard/installer.sh (or whatever it's called).

    no, but that shouldn't affect it. The themes are applied to /system/app, where as app2sd is from /data/app.
