    If I am installing new fonts and themes through ROM manager do I need to

    a) back up?
    b) wipe?
    c) both?
    d) neither?

    Cheers...

    Fingers crossed I seem to have got LeeDroid 2.0a Working and got the Radio no problem....

    Just to font and theme it up and get me apps back on!!

    Only took 24 hours...

    Cheers,

    It's the end of a long, painful and highly stress inducing process, hopefully it doesn't go wrong now!!

    The main thing to remember is don't panic when doing things, also treat the phone as a pc rather than a phone & the majority of times it all goes right.
