I'm not new to android I had an epic it was rooted the only big thing I did to it was changing the lock screen I always wanted to do more though, now I have an evo. I want to put a theme on it or maybe a rom but I dont know where to start -_- like I got questions, if I dont want the theme anymore how do I go back to the stock look? And what if I want a different theme do I need to go back to the stock look or can I just go from theme to theme? And will I lose my apps text etc... when I put a theme on the phone. I want to try custom roms also. Any help? Please :)

Moved you over to the hacks section so you can get some proper advice :p

Once you flash the theme, if you wanna go back to the way it was you can either
A) Restore a nandroid backup. Or B) reflash the rom.

Your gonna have to do some reading for those answers, and they just might be in my signature links. ;)

You wont lose your apps or anything while theming.

Once your rooted, your golden, doesnt matter how you get root as long as you have it.
Thats up to the themer, if his theme is for the stock rooted rom then no you dont need a different rom. If he based it off of fresh, then you need to flash fresh.
See what i mean? What the themer does is download a rom (or the stock one), rip it open, edit the looks of the rom with a photo editor and XML editor, package up the stuff he edited into a .zip package that will replace the un-edited stuff in your rom with the stuff he edited in the .zip. Make sense? :p

its the MattedBlues theme CM6&7/Sense/MikFroyo/Vanilla Locks Versions. it says sence so im guessing its for stock also. i also want to flash the font pack he has.

[THEME] MattedBlues - CM6&7/Sense/MikFroyo/Vanilla Locks Versions *UPDATED 2/17/2010* - xda-developers

It says for 3.70, so yup. But your not on a deodexed version of the rom so it may not work.

Worth a shot though, do a nandroid then flash, THIS and then the fonts. Reboot, and pray...

ugh -_- i dont want to take any chances, what happens if it doesnt work? what themes work on a fully stock rom then? i dont want to download any roms, i been looking on how to do a nandroid and cant find anything YET.

if you did a nandroid backup then all u do is flash it and if it doesnt work no harm done just reboot into recovery and flash the backup and your back to normal
