    Im running CyanogenMod 5.0.5.7 with BlackIceTheme right now and im wanting to switch to NexTheme 2.0 so just switching themes not roms i went ahead and downloaded it on rom manager and installed it without wiping data/cache when the phone rebooted it had no signal and still had part of the BlackIce theme and parts of nextheme so no i need to wipe data/cache before installing this theme

    When using MetaMorph, you cannot use the apply all if framework.res is in there - as soon as it gets to that it will (most likely) reboot the phone upon applying (this has happened to me a couple of times). Manually move framework.res out and then you *should* be able to hit apply all, and then move it back in and apply framework manually.

    Your other option is to apply them all 1 by 1....which is what *I* did not realizing that it was framework that was causing my reboots.

    i dont think you need to wipe. try installing the same unthemed rom over itself. this will get you back to the unthemed version. then re-theme it with the nextheme.

    when switch themes you need to either wipe or flash the original rom again to get back to a clean slate. Themes dont always theme all the same things so you will almost always get leftovers from the first theme

    Ahh, good points - sorry, longdaddy, I completely overlooked your mention of ROM Manager.

    My bad.
