    A lot of people have been asking for a method to remove themes. Well, this file will work with any theme. It removes all themed apps (restores the stock versions), as well as removes any custom fonts and themed frameworks.

    This should also help those who have removed stocks apps restore all of their stock apps in the case they want to do the OTA update to Froyo.

    Requirements

    -Rooted
    -Have Droid X Recovery App

    Instructions

    -Download the following file: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    -Place it on the root of your sd card
    -Launch Droid X Bootstrapper, bootstrap recovery, reboot recovery
    -Navigate to 'install zip from sdcard'
    -'Choose zip from sdcard'
    -Find 'Fabolous_theme_killer.zip' and select it
    -Press 'Yes'
    -Reboot

    You'll have to remove bloatware again, if you did so.


    To Remove just custom fonts and return to stock fonts

    The OP states it will return to the stock font but I'd like to be able to just do it to the font and not the theme, I'm finding the Revolution font a little too thin/jagged for smaller text. Thanks.

    Thanks a lot, I like the new font but it's just a little too "thin". Thanks again for all of your work, I really appreciate it.

    JrzDroid, try toggling Airplane mode, then reboot if it still doesn't come back on right after.

    Is this essentially the same as manually replacing the services and framework, and replacing the metamorph, as you posted in the nextheme and revolution threads? If I wanted to go back to stock conditions for froyo, would both methods suffice, or is one better than the other?

    First I'm a newbie. Second, I never rooted the phone or messed with any of the apps. I did however install a 3rd party launcher which has themes. I should be fine when upgrading to 2.2 right? Never had a desire to mess with the core operating system until 2.2 was released. And with only a few hours away with a possible release I want to be prepared.

    You're fine. The themes for the launchers wouldn't apply here.

    Nope. A factory reset only wipes your data, it makes no changes to the system, where the theme files reside.

    The version in the market is there if you'd like to support him by donating $2 for the app.

    It is also available for free at his website:
