    Themes take a long time to install.

    You DID make a backup in recovery, right?

    You should have these backups:
    stock_rooted_2.3.15 (to upgrade with OTA)
    deodexed_2.3.15 (to install new themes)
    periodic backups

    There are 3 928Droid themes. You should DL all 3 while you can. One deodexs, one removes the deodex and the third one removes the black theme while staying deodexed. The last one is what you want to install next.

    I think that this is a problem for a lot of new people when putting a theme on their phone. I am included. The first time I did this and did it with 928 btw, I was starting to get nervous but then just left my desk for a while so I didn't jack anything up. Came back a while later and it was all set.
