JaeKar (or anyone else),
I extracted the 'bootanimation.zip' file from Adryn's SC 2.9 voodoo zip with the intention of copy/pasting it into the 'system > media' folder on my phone.
I renamed the current boot file in that folder to 'bootanimation.zip.old' then pasted Adryn's boot file.
After rebooting, instead of seeing that great exploding honeycomb animation, all I saw was the word 'ANDROID' on the screen in landscape view with some highlighting animation... not what I expected!
Was I supposed to flash Adryn's bootanimation.zip with CWM or did I do something else wrong? DroidXcon seemed to think it has something to do with VooDoo and said to ask you or Gunnermike...
Thanks for any guidance!

You can try simply booting to recovery, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, flash old theme, reboot phone. Depends on which theme has deeper customizations. Old theme has more - no problem. New theme has more - may still have remnants of new theme carry over.
Also 2.9.2 is out which includes everything from 2.9 and the 2.9.1 patch plus a few other modifications/tweaks. If you want to save yourself the step of flashing the ROM and the patch separately, you could download 2.9.2 to your sd card and flash it through cwm.
Hope this helps.Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

post by ragnarokx - He details the issues and a fix... However - I would not flash the boot animation... it will likely need to be installed with method B.
I looked at the boot animation file in SC 2.9.2 it installs to system/media. - Here is a of that exact file. I looked into the VA green theme and the bootanimation.zip file is also in the same directory. As long as all files are in the correct locations you should be seeing the boot.
Given I do not use voodoo it would be recommended that you check in with gunnermike53 - he has worked voodoo from every angle..

Bad news - current kernels do not support the playing of sound during boot animations. (Shutdown sounds are playable)
Good news - Samsung released the source code for new kernel development yesterday.. (for Mezmerize - Fascinate twin) the hope is that new kernels will start to roll out in the next week or so... with that in play we should start to see the capability for boot sounds, voodoo sound, and voodoo graphics enhancements...

I just flashed Nitrohoneycomb and I'm liking it so far except I'm not a big fan of the way the keyboard looks...Is there any way I can change that back to the stock SC 2.9.2 keyboard?
Also, If i wanted to go back to stock SC 2.9.2 with no theme, what would be the best way to do that?

Worst case scenario is to clear caches (Dalvik and partition) then reflash 2.9.2. That will take you back to stock without any loss of data.

If you backup your freshly flashed base ROM un-themed - it will usually restore. Gunnermike53 has suggested: flash a theme over a theme to remedy the problem - I have had mixed success with that technique.
I keep a copy of the base ROM (SC 2.9.2) backed up and a copy of the zip on my sdcard. If I flash a theme I choose to revert back I will go with the backup in a pinch... There have been times that it will not restore..
If it will not restore I will clear both caches and flash the ROM back on - Either way - it takes the same amount of time.
