    Let me know where I went wrong..

    -Downloaded "TruBlue_BBv0.6.2" on Pc
    -Mounted Droid and placed .zip file on SD card
    -Unmounted
    -Backed up current ROM with ClockworkMod
    -ROM Manager > Install ROM from SD > "TruBlue_BBv0.6.2"
    -Did NOT clear cache
    -Phone reboots, appears to be going fine
    -Following "M" logo, droid gets stuck trying to load the white "DROID" Not sure why it showed this because the boot animation for BuglessBeast is the Droid X eye, I just assumed it'd be blue in this them

    Restored with no problem, but why didn't the theme take?

    The culprit may be Rom Manager itself. That's a weird program, and while I have it on all three of my phones, I rarely use the thing, since it has a habit of not doing what you told it to do. Try using RM to boot you into CW Recovery, then use Recovery itself to install the theme. I *never* use RM to do the actual install, on any of my phones, preferring to chose what I want to do from the recovery program and eliminating the middle man.

    Another possibility is to go ahead and clear the cache - that may have been a factor in your problem.

    Did you install the rom first, and then the theme over the rom, without wiping?? If so, then maybe you just got a corrupt download of the theme file. Redownload it, and try flashing again.

    I have noticed some weirdness with RM (the loading ring is always going when I have it open and many of the free ROMs dont appea). So boot into clockwork recovery, then select install and the theme will be there?


    EDIT: Tried this method, same result. It reads that the install was successful, but when I reboot it just barely flickers at that DROID animation. I guess it must be a corrupted download? Or is there a major step I'm not doing...

    Yes, I installed BB then tried to install the theme over it. I'll give it another shot. I'll admit I got pretty scared when I got that boot loop screen, but its pretty simple to fix.

    I'll give this a shot. Any reason I can't use Dropbox to get the file onto my SD, rather than USB?

    You didn't mention the ROM you are running. If you are running Pete's latest (v.6.2.1 or the ver. with the easter egg) then I don't believe a theme for v6.2 will function correctly.

    My mistake. I'm running Bugless Beast 6.2.1, which I believe is the newest stable build of the ROM.

    I believe that may be the issue. I think Pete some framework changes that make older themes incompatable.
