    I cant find any info on how to install themes the right way. The way I have been doing it is just installing the theme from the recovery clockwork. Do you have to delete anything to make it more of a clean install? I did do a search but i found nothing so sorry if this has been covered.

    You've been doing it the right way - just a flash in Clockwork is all you need for themes.

    Give me a link to the theme you're trying to install, what ROM you're using and the version of Clockwork that you're flashing the theme with.

    I'm not sure about that v2a theme, but the v3.1 needs Clockwork v3.0.0.X to install. Upgrading to that version of Clockwork will allow you to install midNIGHT v2.7. If you're interested, start here to get the new Clockwork and then head over to the midNIGHT thread.

    I too am interested in the midNIGHT Theme v3.1 Blue Circle Icon 1% Battery Mod AOSP LOCK.

    I'm guessing that by installing CWM v3.0.0.5, I'm going to have to reflash my current ROM? I like my setup the way is now, but I really like that battery icon. I'm already running midNIGHT 2.4 EXT, but I still have CWM v2.5.1.2.

    If you would like we could try to convert those back to Amend script for you to use since they are made for use with the new ClockWork.

    Yeah, that would be awesome if you could. I'm mostly interested in just the battery icon. But the whole ASOP lockscreen goodness would be fine too.

    Would I install via update.zip?

    Credit goes to ptfdmedic and midNIGHT for the theme

    Give it a shot. I'm not on that version of CWM so I can't verify it. But it should flash in CWM with no troubles.

    You rock man! Gonna give it a shot. I already hit the thanks button, so it better work! Lol, I'm kidding. Thanks!

    By the way, what happens if I want to uninstall the theme? How would I go about doing that? Never messed with themes before. Just ROMs.

    You would have to flash a different theme over it or reflash the ROM again and that will reset the theme to ROM has specified.

    That is one reason I usually do a quick backup with CWM so if I don't like something after flashing I can simply reboot and go restore the backup.

    Awesome. Thanks. I hope I like it so I don't have to reflash the ROM again!

    Thank you for trying... Hard to test it out when I'm on a completely different CWM.

    Enjoy.

    Yeah, well now you know it works. So in that manner, I'm glad I was able to help out. I'm sure this will benefit others that are still on a previous version of CWM.

    One more question do you lose the way your apps are all laid out on the front screens when you change themes?
    01-10-2011 02:55 PM

    Nope, everything is all the same after changing themes. I noticed it took longer to boot up, but everything was left the same. Only thing changed was the theme.

    Yes it always takes longer on first boot up after flashing.

    I'm considering trying this theme also, have it downloaded on my sd card. Just playing with it, unzipped it there to expose 2 .apk's.

    Can you just load them from sd card without going to Clockwork? I too am looking to put battery icon on top, I want to stick with Truly Epic's mod, but like the color changes on dial pad better.

    Hey, I don't know if this would be much help to you, but I tried other themes, and I seemed to like stock theming better. All I really wanted was the circular battery icon. Check this out. You can pretty much run whatever theme, and then just install the custom battery icon in clockwork.

    There are several other battery icons on the page as well.

    You will have to flash it using ClockWorkMod.
