Themes

[info]Themes change the look of a ROM. You should consult with the theme developer regarding compatibility questions. As a rule of thumb, to be compatible the ROM must be deodexed which can be verified by the ROM developer, and also the theme must be made for the source the ROM is built from, which the theme developer can answer.[/info]
