    Final question I swear. When I flash a theme like aosp lock screen, can I uninstall it somehow or how does that work!?
    And the verdict is...........DroidXcon was correct. Even though you download the themes to your sd card, once you flash them they are applied to your phone.

    Unmounted sd card, pulled it from the phone ==> theme still there
    put sd card back in, deleted theme from sd card ==> theme still there
    rebooted ==> theme still there
    wiped cache/dalvik ==> theme still there

    Looks like the only way to get rid of a theme completely from your phone is through ODIN. Of course if you just don't want the theme showing I would imagine you could go into cwm, wipe data/cache, and flash everything but the theme. At least we have an answer now.

    OK, can I switch the theme? For example, if I get two different ones and flash them, is the one I most recently flashed the only one I can pick? I guess it would be nice to have this option to go back and forth from one to another or back to a stock theme. Thanks for all you hard work too!

    you can keep as many themes on your sd card as you want. to switch between themes, just reboot into recovery, apply update.zip, install the different theme, and reboot. No need to do any wiping of data or caches when switching between themes

    ever since i put superclean 2.1 on my phone, when the screen turns off for a long period of time the phone goes completely unresponsive.... i can take out the battery and put it back in and the phone boots up and acts like it should until the screen times out again for a long period of time... i have had to put battery in and out about 6x just this morning and is a real inconvenience in class when i gotta sneakily take out the battery lol.... but also ever since i flashed 2.1 i cant seem to get red cwm to work every time i boot into recovery it comes up as stock android recovery. i have even moved the update.zip file to the cwm folder and renamed it recovery-update.zip and renamed the old recoery-update file update.zip and removed it from the folder... is any one else having either of these problems

    unresponsive meaning you hit the power button and nothing happens? wow. By stock android recovery are you referring to the blue cwm? If so that is correct. You have to highlight apply sdcard:update.zip and hit the home button. that will take you into red cwm. don't move the update.zip file to the cwm folder, leave it where it is on the base of your sd card or you will not be able to get into red cwm. for the cwm folder, download another copy of update.zip to that folder, delete the current recovery-update.zip file, then rename the update.zip file recovery-update.

    yes when i hit the power button nothing happens and when someone calls nothing happens but my ringback tone plays it doesnt go straight to voicemail so it leads me 2 believe it is on but unresponsive until i do a battery pull... i will give wat u said about the red cwm a try... i did mean the blue cwm....other than this the rom has been absolutely flawless for me so far(also that battery life has been really bad but i'm attributing that 2 having 2 boot my phone up over and over)

    DriodX thank you for your work I used this methiod this morning and it worked ok when it loaded i went into market and it was trying to load all my apps so I pulled the batt rebooted went into market and instead of going to my apps I just searched TB and installed and re applied my apps that way everything seems to be good flashed a theme and even themed the market. Juat was wondering why it did or if I did something wrong and got lucky saving myself.
    I flashed the SC version through odin package.
    Again Thank You for your work and all the dev for making are phones what they should be and more.
