    Just wondering if doing a data / cache wipe will remove a theme or do you have to have a nandroid pre-theming?

    Edit: Actually I think I meant to say a factory reset?

    no it will not remove a theme, the only way to remove a theme is to restore a nandroid you made prior to theming, sbf or flash another theme or rom

    Thanks for the clarification. I'm looking to test that Apex Alpha build and didn't know if having BWC theme would mess it up or not. Guess I could 'test' it. :D

    well that theme will have no bearing on apex alpha bild, since when you install apex alpha you will wipe data upon installation and dont use bwc while on apex they are surely not compatible as i doubt Bouchigo (since its his theme) or anyone for that matter would port over a theme for an alpha build as its generally for testing purposes only

    Not sure if you were getting at this, but if you mean will you be able to do a data/cache wipe and flash Apex Alpha over your current BWC themed ROM? Yes. That's what Gmenfan said, "or flash another theme or rom."

    PS--Not being smart...just trying to be helpful if you genuinely missed that. :)

    Thanks to both of you for clearing that up. I guess I was just uncertain if there would be remnants left over from BWC. I did obtain a Nandroid of .588 deodexed w/ no theme nor rom from another user which I might go ahead and restore to before attempting any mod or theme upgrades just to be safe if that sounds plausible.

    Just apply my deodex file and you will be back to stock (BWC completely gone)......it's simple, don't over think it ;)

    Does this seem to be the correct one?
