    First of all, are you rooted?...If not you have to be rooted to install themes and ROM. There are some good guides in this forum so just make sure to follow them. Also, the instructions for each released ROM are in the original post. So just make sure that you follow those directions to the point and always make a back up before you install anything. Hope this helps

    I am rooted. I am trying to follow the instructions as close as possible, but it just says select the darkslide zip. I downloaded the folder but don't know what zip in that folder I should choose. And thankfully I do have a backup.

    the whole ROM is a zip, you should see install zip from sd then choose zip then the ROM towards the bottom of the list

    When I click on the rom I get 3 options: meta-inf, sdcard, and system.

    I think I figured out my problem. I think the file is already unzipped and stored as a folder instead of a zip. Looks like its backup time

    Yeah, it will only load as a zip, you shouldn't unzip it with the pc or the DX, just get the zip on your sd card
