    A theme is purpose built for a specific ROM (stock or custom) and changes the notification bar, dialer and system font for example, they go deeper than a launcher. A replacement launcher, like in Abe's thread allow quite a bit of customization to the phone without root.

    Alright, so the way I picture it at the moment is it all works as layers. The base would be your phone. on top of that you have your kernel which is comparable to a bios. then you have a ROM which is comparable to the operating system. On top of that you have both the launcher and the theme to customize the look. Do these layer on top of eachother, or do they conflict with eachother?

    You will just have to make sure you flash a stable reliable ROM and a theme made specifically for that ROM and use a good launcher.
    The ones posted in the last page should help... LauncherPro Plus is my favorite... I've tried them all but I always go back to it.
    Just do your research and make sure you do alot of reading before taking the plunge. A ready soldier is an alive soldier.

    What have you guys done to me?

    I can't control it, it is an addiction.

    Please... Make it stop!!!

    Just reminiscing on old times... Wow was I dumb. I have come a long way since then and am now writing my own Roms and kernels. Thanks again for all the help along the way!
