    I am new to rooting and custom roms, so I have a couple of questions about flashing different themes. I currently am using ss4.6 w/ stock kernal and works great. So the ? is when adding a theme do I just put it on the sd card in update.zip form and install over the rom without wiping anything? BTW I rooted the old fashioned way with rsd lite and have been using sprecovery to flash the roms.

    Yes, you've got it exactly right. Make sure to make a backup before you try a new theme, though, and make sure any theme you install is compatible with the ROM you're using.

    Thank you that clears a lot up. And I did see that the themes seem to be rom specific, so I'll be careful as to which ones I try.
