    ive been meaning to ask, on the IHO rom, and also on the harmonia, theres a "theme chooser" in the home icons. I have downloaded one theme called Cyanbread and it allows me to choose between the default and the cyanbread using the theme chooser....

    now, this is different from using themes in ADW launcher, so im wondering how do i just get themes for this theme chooser? do i have to look on the market for just "theme apps" ones that dont require launcher applications?

    Mainly im just trying to change the way my status bar looks, IE the color mostly. thoughts?

    It's not a flashable theme. You apply it with the theme chooser.

    I found it on the Marketplace. It says it's for HDPI devices only. What is that and how do I know if my OV is one? (OK I googled and it's apparently the screen type, but I still don't know what my screen is.)

    The V is mdpi. Generally mdpi is screen res of 320x480, and hdpi is 480x800.

    Which one? I found one by Sekhon for mdpi but it's been "installing" for 10 minutes.

    Wish I could remember. It doesn't show up in the app drawer, of course, and it doesn't say in the theme chooser. After my kids go to sleep, I'll try to look it up.

    Okay, I got a chance to check it out, and it is in fact the Sonny Sekhon one.

    Did it install for you eventually?

    No, I rebooted and it was in the Theme Chooser and I got the warning message when I tapped it. I booted again and it still went to the default theme.

    I tried to uninstall it and it sat on that screen for over ten minutes too. I just flashed a fresh rom to get rid of it.

    That's weird! I've never encountered that issue before, and installed it at least 5 times.

    I'm running BACKside on a newer OV (came with Android 2.2.2). I wonder if it's a version problem?

    I wouldn't think so. The only thing different between the new and old is the screen (and therefore, the screen's driver). I don't think that the theme is directly interacting with any drivers. I would try it on a fresh install, before restoring any apps and see what happens.

    Maybe I'll try it again. I just reflashed and the only thins i added were gmail and Google voice.

    ADD: I just realized my gapps is for 2.3.5. Don't know if that is a problem but I'll see if there is one for 2.3.7.

    Have you tried Harmonia 2? It's IHO based, and you don't have to flash gapps at all, it's prepackaged.

    It sort of worked. The icons and behavior are different, but the background didn't change.

    I'll try Harmonia 2 tomorrow.

    I want to say that I've had some issues with a theme, just not the ones you're describing, and it was because of a bad flash. Are you checking the MD5 sums on the ROMs (on the phone) before you flash?

    I checked with the files on my PC and they matched, didn't look at the official md5 on the websites. HTTP/FTP downloads are supposed to be safe.

    Downloading Harmonia 2 now.

    This time it still got hung in the install although the top status bar said install was successful (don't recall seeing that before). Rebooted, went to Theme Chooser and selected ICS. Got the warning and rebooted again. And . . . nothing. Black background, icons didn't change, can't tell any difference with original H2. Might stick with H2 for awhile though.

    ADD: The checksums all match with the ones posted on the websites.

    ADD2: In fact shouldn't there be a background on stock H2? All I get is black. Under Theme Chooser there are two choices already there.

    The stock background on H2 is black. And once you change it, I haven't figured out how to get it back.
