    Have nandroid back to redux as i get much better battery life than oxygen. Can i flash the themed version straight over the non themed version or will i need to wipe first? Also does the themed version fit in the oxygen hboot table? Thanx.

    I've flashed between themed and unthemed without a wipe. I don't think there's any great difference in ROM sizes.

    Different statusbar icons, green overscroll glow. That's all I can remember being different really.

    only issue I had with the themed version was when I added a UOT Kitchen thing, the battery icon didn't allow me to show the percentage. It just showed me an icon more akin to a usb sign.

    Is Redux THAT much better than Oxygen for battery life? I find Oxygen fab, even OCed to 1113mhz!

    Strange how every one is different! Redux is one to try in the near future!

    @shauny - yep, running themed version and it fits Oxygen R2 hboot with about 5MB to spare

    UOT circle battery mod works fine on mine (always do a cache and dalvik wipe before i flash UOTs just in case). Have you changed the battery style in the Interface menu, 'cos I haven't touched that since flashing battery mod?

    Probably not that much.
    I did however had a much better battery life with Oxygen, compared to CM7.

    @saltire thanks for that. I don't use the themed version now. I use the non-themed and my Kitchen works fine.

    I think I remember when I had the problem before as I mentioned the usb sign came up when I went into the Interface settings and changed to show percentage.

    I am happy with the settings I have now but if I change to the theme version again i will try and remember your advice.
