    Either nandroid restore to a backup without the theme or re-flash the ROM.

    What sort of theme?

    Was it a theme that you flashed via custom recovery or some other rooted method (metamorph)?

    Was it a theme you downloaded for the market, like one of the various Go Launcher or ADW options?

    Syndicate is correct. Either use your nandriod you made before you flashed the theme, or reflash the ROM.

    Hmmm. Still a little new to this so I made a mistake. When installed the theme I didn't make nandroid backup. So is my only option to re flash my rom?

    Yes you have to reflash the ROM. You should not need to wipe anything though.

    yes that's what you need to do.

    alternative is to use root explorer to replace the themed apps with the original ones...or adb push them to the system app folder. Since you've said you're new to android I suggest reflashing the Rom.

    first rule of android customization is ALWAYS backup before flashing anything

    So I'm clear my steps will be:

    Reboot into recovery
    Reinstall the rom zip file
    Reinstall the gapps
    Reboot system

    No need to make backup??

    if the theme you flashed was only to theme the google apps and not the entire Rom, you should be able to flash the gapps only

    I'll try that now. Real quick question. When I'm using titanium backup do I back up all user apps and system data?? Or just user apps?
