If you put them back do they stay? Sometimes the things themed will go away (icons, widgets) when you first apply the theme. Once you add them back they should stay.

Are you wiping before installing? I know this is a rookie question.. wipe 3x... If so, that problem seems out of control

If I keep the rom (any) unthemed....widgets work fine...etc....however once themed and a reboot...widgets are gone...been seeing this since latest froyo...and yes I have wiped up to 5 times....just irritating the crap out of me...I can tell when its going to happen to....when I reboot and it wants to know which launcher I want to use...like it has forgotten what I selected and setup ;(

of course you lose your widgets because in a clean rom they are not themed and a theme has themed widgets so of course you will lose th eoriginal you just have to replace them once you are themed. and as for ultimate droid for them to be themed you have to install through the ultimate d roid section

I've used 3 diff Froyo ROMs, all with a theme applied and have not seen this issue.

When first going to Froyo from 2.1..... I did 2 data wipe/factory resets just to be sure.

Generally after applying a theme you lose your widgets anyway. This is normal. And also you usually have to re-select your default launcher. I don't see anything abnormal here.

I was having similar problems turned out its a2sd, the sd isn't mounted when thehone starts looking for files so they vanished. Since disabling a2sd and moving everything back to internal memory (where it belongs in my opinion) I have not had a single issue.

Step 0: Make a backup of your rom.
Step 1: wipe everything multiple times
Step 2: Install your Froyo Rom of choice
Step 3: boot it up and make sure it works BEFORE installing a theme.
Step 4: Find the theme of your choice.
Step 5: Install the theme using the Update.zip method (if using SPR then rename to Update.zip) otherwise no need to rename.
Step 6: Reselect your main launcher (most themes come with a themed launcher and will require you to reselect the main launcher)
Step 7: Add your widgets, desktop icons, etc.

Thats what you should do be doing :)
