    As suggested by NoNameFace, I decided to create a thread devoted to themes created specifically for the much loved BACKside ROM. Here is a list of the current (as of the 11/01 bulid) themes so far:

    Note: The themes on this list should be updated for the current BACKside build, but some theme-er's probably work faster than others when a new build comes out, so double check the build before you flash. Make sure you are using a theme that was made for the build you are using

    Theme Reverter Flash this to return to stock theme. Get the Reverter here

    Statusbar Transparency Mod Flash this if you are using a Theme Chooser theme that has a transparent statusbar to get the transparency to show. Get the mod here
    How to apply a theme:
    Download theme to your SD card (you may want to set up a folder titled "themes" or similar to avoid mixing up theme .zip's with ROMs and whatnot)

    Boot into recovery

    Backup better safe than sorry

    Optional step: wipe cache & dalvik cache some say do, some say don't. If you have wiped caches before with no ill effects, I would wipe, if wiping caches gives you issues, skip it.

    Choose "Install zip from SDcard"

    Choose <name of theme>.zip *if you created a folder as suggested above, choose your folder, then the theme zip


    Enjoy :)

    If I missed a theme, please let me know so I can add it to the list! I just did a quick scan of the past posts in the BACKside thread, so if I missed someone's theme, I apologize. If someone wants to post a list of themes for older BACKside builds, feel free (or PM me the links and I can add them to this post)

    Hopefully, we can get everyone posting their new themes in this thread so everything will be in one place and easier to find :D

    I have never been able to apply a theme this way. Every time I wipe the cache and dalvik and then apply a theme I have to restore my backup. Are you sure about these instructions? And step #2 should be backup.

    all i need to do to flash themes is wipe the caches and flash it and reboot, haven't had a problem yet and i've probably flashed 20themes.

    On my two OVs I have never had wiping caches work. They both get to the IHO screen then reboot to the LG screen a couple times before finally getting stuck on the IHO screen. I flash the theme, never wipe anything.

    Hmm, all the instructions I've ever read say to wipe 1st. You are right about step 2,.I will edit.
    The only times I have had issues with wiping caches has been since I started using link2sd. Before that, I would wipe both caches at least once a week, usually to fix market 'insufficient space on device' issues,and I never had a problem

    You missed my most popular but it was buried lol. I couldn't find it at first but I've now updated it with new links. Also make sure they know to get the theme based on there current build. When a new build comes out make sure to rebuild your theme because they use files unique to the build and can cause problems not having the right build.

    Here's the one you missed, the blues:

    Perhaps it would be easier for her to keep up with the links if theme makers had a DeviantArt page she could link to? DA accounts are free. ;)

    She updated so it went to the post specifically so all they have to do is keep the post updated and new posts can be put here and she can still link to the one post in the main post.

    For future reference, how do you undo themes? Can you just go into theme chooser after all the flashing?
  11. benslgdroid

    benslgdroid rockstar

    If you have another theme chooser theme. Other wise you flash another or reflash the rom is the only way I know of.

    Even so, there's a new CyanogenMod Themers group that was just created over at DeviantArt, for those who wish to submit their themes. :D

    You are correct there. I've been looking around trying to learn about making my own theme (I want the GreenMachine theme, but all blue. Everything else identical). And everywhere says wipe cache/dalvik first. But on both mine and my wife's Optimuses doing so they never booted past the IHO splash. So I've always skipped that step.
  15. sadielynn

    sadielynn Well-Known Member

    I've skipped that step the last couple of times myself, since it seems to do really bad things if you use link2sd. (tried it once, didn't lock up at the IHO screen, but once it booted, EVERYTHING on my phone threw up force close errors all at once). I've had no ill effects with not wiping, but I included the step (now as optional) since it seems to be the norm. *shrug* whatever works.

    New Theme: RedHead





    Get it here: RedHead 10/18

    RedHead 11/02

    I'm not real happy with the divider lines. They turned out way to extreme (they are everywhere!). I may redo this without them. Let me know what you guys think.

    Also, if you use the center clock, it turns white. Not sure why it won't stay red.

    It has to do with the coding for the center clock, UOT kitchen doesn't recognize it, so therefore it can't color it, which is why Jerry is working on an option to change the color of the center clock, and it would be a neat feature as well ;)

    After flashing a few of the themes above and a few others I always have the same problem. My lock screen is crammed and the bubbles overlap each other. Normally they are 2-3mm apart. Is this a common issue or unique to me? I've tried clearing no cache, and wiping cache and dalvik. The result is always the same. Pic of what I'm talking about below

    Hmm...I have no idea. I have never used pattern unlock, so I've never seen this before. Rebooting after you flash the theme doesn't help?
  21. G19

    G19 Well-Known Member

    Nope. Its weird because the greenmachine theme and redz theme I downloaded from the marketplace don't do this. But every other theme I've tried does it.

    I don't touch the lock in my theme so I'm not sure what could be causing it.
  23. G19

    G19 Well-Known Member

    Very odd. Do you have this problem if you setup a lockscreen?
  24. G19

    G19 Well-Known Member

    Maybe its a problem not affected by the theme. Let me clear everything and try to reflash greenmachine.

    Update:: Looks like greenmachine theme now has the problem also. Humm. Something must have affected/changed the rom I guess.

    Well,I just tried flashing my pink theme and added a pattern lock and,yup,overlapping bubbles. Weird, as I don't touch the lockscreen in my themes either.
