    Okies. Normally you need wipe but Cakes said this morning that you don't have to with this rom. If you have problems redo and wipe first though.

    -Download Rom (Cakes suggested the remix 1.4 to me)
    -Plug Phone in to computer USB
    -Mount Disk Drive(connect to computer usb setting on Bolt)
    -Place BAMF zip on your SD card. (I make a folder called My_Zips and put in there)
    -Reboot into clockwork recovery:
    a)reboot to recovery via rom manager app (suggested method)
    b)manual power down phone then press the down volume and power button same time

    -Once in clockwork (volume key to move up or down, power key to select item
    -Navigate to Backup/Restore(select with power key)
    -Choose backup, preform backup
    -Back up to the main menu if you don't see the following selection. (Can't remember if it puts you right there or not.)
    -Install zip from sd card (power button to select)
    -Choose zip from sd card (power button to select)
    -navigate to BAMF zip using the volume key, power to select it
    -after installed navigate /select "Go Back" until you get to reboot to android

    Will take a little longer while to boot than normal.

    Should have new rom and be happy!!!!!:icon_ banana:
    Was trying to remember by memory so hopefully the selections I told you are correct.

    Lemme know ;-)

    So I just want to clarify... I don't want to make any mistakes...

    Download rom 1.4 remix
    Connect to pc via usb enable disc drive
    Place the zip on the sd card
    reboot to cw - option a or b?
    In clockwork do backup/restore
    Back up to main menu...
    Install zip from sd (does it give the option to move to and choose install?)
    Choose the zip file on sd to be installed
    After installed just keep going "go back" until I get to reboot to android and wait for it to boot up? (takes longer than normal)

    So is this pretty much it??? Is this how the theme will be installed as well or is the process different?

    Thanks for the info it is very helpful! I might make a vid as I go through the process, to help noobs like me! I know I do better with a visual(vid)!

    :icon_ banana:You all rock!

    It needs to be on the root of your sd (not in a folder). But yeah, that's pretty much it. Themes are applied the same way but without wiping data. I've seen others saying to wipe the cache when applying a theme but I haven't done it.

    Ok so just on the sd where I see all the files?? I guess this rom works without wiping cache or data.. Someone has done it with no problems already... So without wiping data it is exactly how the theme will be installed? Was my clarification pretty much correct? (that is what I got out of the instructions)

    Yes, right there where you see the folders

    I do put mine in a seperate folder though. But for simplicity sake do as DD directed. Just put where you see all the other folders for now.

    Yes this will be how you will install the theme also. When it's done. That is

    I am also assuming to make sure debugging is on? Does it matter if fastboot is enabled or not??? I know that was a problem when I rooted.. It needed to be disabled as well as wifi....

    Turn those off just in case. No you don't need them on for this. I don't think will matter. But we don't want you to have a problem since this is your first rom flash. You don't need debugging on for this either but is okay if is on too.
