    I have the Droid, Android's just released 2.1, and I downloaded dxtop, which in itself seems to work fine.

    However, when I install dxtop themes, they seem to download and install OK from the Market screens and the pulldown status bar, but when I go to install them they are nowhere to be found.

    The documentation I have found, even by dxtop itself, is nebulous about (finding and) installing the themes. ANyone have any experience with this?

    FIgured out for myself, but wanted to share. The doenloads to seem to go nowhere, you can't find them where you find all your newly downloaded apps.

    You have to do the following: Menu>Appearance (top middle)>Themes (2nd one down)>dxTop Themes (the little color icon of a house with a paintbrush behind it)> Then a scroll box displays showing all the dxtop themes you have downloaded and can choose from.

    From there, just select a theme and it will install.

    I would say they are probably on your sd card in a folder created by dxtop. Its like with lock 2.0. when you dl a skin it creates a folder called sliderunlock something something and places all your dl's there. Use astro or OI file manager and poke around your sd card.
