How to Change the Theme of your Motorola Droid

Question:
Is there anyway to change the fonts and themes of the ROM without having to re-install the whole ROM onto my phone again? There are a ton of themes and fonts to choose from and that would take forever to do.

Solution:
You can use my goodies thread and they are all update.zips... or you can use rom manager and select "no thank you" when choosing your rom... or you can change them through scripts...


I use to have a script to change a whole theme a couple months ago but got rid of it cuz I didn't like it so for now the only way you can change themes is flashing a new rom but there are tons of options to change other things easily.

Can’t bring yourself to upgrade to the Motorola Droid X and sticking to your first-gen Motorola Droid? Well we have a theme for you that may ease the pain for your aging wonder-phone. Introducing the Droid X theme for your original Droid.

From the looks of it, the theme looks pretty spot on. You’ve got the “love ‘em or hate ‘em” three button configuration skinned to look like the Droid X, some wallpapers, and more. But there’s a catch. Only Droid phones that have been rooted and flashed with Android 2.2 Froyo OS installed can use this theme, and from the looks of it, only the final, FRF84B build can use this theme. But if you’re an Android junkie, you’ve probably done your fair share of modifications to your phone – in which case, this should be as easy as renaming to update.zip, booting to your recovery, and flashing the theme. Voila! If you’re not already using Android 2.2 Froyo, this might be a good reason to get a taste of some Froyo!

It may not be the real thing, but it looks pretty close. Other than looking like the real deal, the theme also comes with the Droid X’s dedicated video player, live wallpaper, as well as the X Android boot animation.

This is yet another reason I love the little green robot. There are so many things you can do with the device if you just look in the right place. Other platforms are hackable, but none are as fun as Android. I bought an iPod Touch for the sole reason of jailbreaking it, but it wasn’t much more than an extra App Store. There are some cool things you can do with it, but it seems that hacking the iPhone/iPod just gets a little boring.

With Android, you don’t even need to hack your device to get a different home replacement, most of which support themes on their own. For the bigger tech geeks out there, there’s root, in which you can overclock the processor if you want your device to be faster and don’t mind killing your battery more (Not suggested for EVO users), and apply heavy modifications. This theme is just one of the many things you can do.

For now, this stays in Motorola Droid-land, but I’d expect to see this coming to more phones as time goes on.
