1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So i have a quick question that can be summed up probably in one reply but here goes. How exactly does one apply a theme. I have searched for an answer but all i get is to install an app from the market. That doesn't make much sense to me seeing as how i'm rooted and don't want a crappy jay-z theme. So for an example how would i go about applying the smoked glass theme to a bugless beast v5? or any other theme at that.

    I believe but am not 100% sure that you just flash it over the rom (always back up first)

    If you are using SPR download the theme, rename to update.zip.

    Mount your phone
    rename or remove any existing update.zip files
    add the new update.zip to root of your SD card
    Boot into recovery and make a backup
    then install the theme (do both installs) do NOT wipe data/cache.
    reboot.

    If you are using RM/CW select and download the theme
    boot into CW make a backup do not wipe install the theme

    hope this is helpful.
