    Usually you download the theme you want to apply (make sure it goes with the rom version/build you are using), place the theme flashable .zip file on your sd card, and reboot to recovery mode.

    in recovery mode, wipe cache partition and dalvik cache, then install zip from sd>choose zip from sd card>find your theme .zip and select it.

    it will install, then you can select reboot system now.

    Well said zero...

    Always make sure you do the cache partition & dalvik cache wipes, if you don't the theme your flashing will only overwrite whatever is new. In other words without doing the wipes you could end up with a mix of your old theme and the new theme.

    Some people do this on purpose at times to see what type of crazy "hyper breed or cross breed" theme they come up with

    I did what zero said but it was optimizing apps, then it was booting up for like 10 minutes, so I stopped it and restored a nandroid. Should it take this long?

    It could take 5-10 min to boot up. When it's done optimizing the apps it should start up.

    Did it finish optimizing?

    Are you sure the theme is the right one for your rom?

    It didn't say optimizing it was something else, but looked the same setup as optimizing. Then it went to the boot animation again and didn't stop until I booted my old nandroid

    you could try dl'ing the theme again, maybe the dl was incomplete or corrupted.

    It didn't say optimizing. Instead disreading or like discontinuing. Should I just back off this theme?
    After it discontinued the apps it went to the boot animation again for the second time.

    If the theme didn't work then it's probably not for your rom or hasn't been updated to the rom yet

    This isn't true all your doing is just wiping the apps and system caches. If you want to remove your old theme you will need to wipe your phone then flash your new theme and reset all your apps etc

    This is right I musta had a stroke or something

    You need to reflash the rom after data, cache, and dalvik cleared.
