    New to the android community, just had one small question. When I'm installing themes how do I make the actual theme wallpaper become active? It seems that when I install themes, my custom wallpaper is still active.

    some themes dont have a custom wallpaper and some do ...long pres your home screen and select wallpaper and there will sometimes be a wallpaper there that the dev has included with the theme but like i said some do and some dont

    Thanks, makes perfect sense. But in that case I worded the question wrong. I meant to ask for the widget changes. I just downloaded the BiG Droid X theme and the weather and clock widgets didnt appear on the home screen

    Oh yeah, one more question, if I am rooted and deodexed (with a theme installed), if there was a possibility I needed to unvoid my warranty, can I jus input that code into terminal to unroot? Or will there be difficulties? Will all my previous settings restore before I rooted?

    if you had to bring your x in for any reason you can unroot and do a factory reset or and if that doesnt work you can always flash the 2.2 sbf and go back to stock

    If you ever need to return your phone to Verizon, a factory reset will NOT unroot you or remove custom ROMs or themes, you will need to use the SBF to go completely back to factory state.

    Big DX adds a "BigDX!" folder to your sd card. In there you will find themed apps and widgets. Select the app you want, long press and choose install.
