    Question How to install themes?

    I am very new to android, just got my first android phone (Backflip) today. How do I install themes? I've noticed that in settings the only thing I can change is th wallpaper. Is there a theme app that will allow me to run themes?

    Theming in the truest sense requires you to have a custom recovery installed to flash the theme zip file. What it does is replace the framework-res.apk, android.policy.jar, and services.jar that's in /system/framework. framework-res.apk contains all of the graphic parts of the UI and the android.policy.jar contains the lockscreen elements.

    Of course I forgot there's MetaMorph, but it's not really giving you the whole shebang.

    Ah. Yeah I figured there'd be an app for it but wasn't sure. Perhaps down the road I'll look into it but I think for now I'm happy with what I've got. Thanks again
