Whenever I try to download a skin, it comes out as a .bin, and I cannot open it.
What's wrong?

From the FAQ:

Q: Why skin is downloading as ".bin" file?A: Because you are using browser in your phone to download skin. Use your PC browser to download or use XDA official Android app and download via it.

I too had some of these for Froyo. I downloaded and installed the GB versions and two issues I noticed:

I can't uninstall them like I could on Froyo
There is an issue with the skin refreashing the menu bar. This is fixable but you need to install things in recovery so I assume that needs root.

I went back to using the stock one called Slate. I like this one but wish it was more transparent.

I used the browser on my phone to download it (but you have to keep the browser open until it's finished downloading) and it works great. Then I use the AppInstaller App to install it and BINGO new skins. Not rooted.

You could simply name the file to whatever you want followed by .apk and all you need to do is install it using a file explorer. It works for my non rooted phone.

Note that actual Sense3.0 skins isn't compatible with Sense2.1

I don't believe that was what was meant. There is an actual skin called "Sense3", designed apparently to look like sense 3.0, that is one of the nicest looking ones I've seen.

Which Appinstaller would I have to DL from the market?
