    Hi wug..I was reading your wonderful write up and clicked on the ota deodex by sephtin link and I thought if be reading more info but it started (and still is) downloading. I'm not rooted and not good at computer stuff. I don't even know what it means to flash something. What did I do and should I delete it?(If yes, how?) I'd like to root someday when my warrantee is over but not until I really understand every little thing so I'm reading every thread I can til then to learn stuff. So what should I do about what I downloaded just now?

    You need to be rooted to deodex. If you don't plan on rooting anytime soon, delete file, its useless to you right now till you root.

    And always remember to read, read, read, and read some more!

    Excellent write up!!! I have a few noob questions related to this if you don't mind:

    You say ROM's are deodexed, so I shouldn't have to install deox version to use the roms, correct?

    If I just want to use a theme, then i need to flash the deox version, got that, but when I wnat to try another theme, can I flash that over the previous theme or do I have to restore the backup I took after installing deox and before i flashed the first theme?

    I've read that people have flashed the gingercomb theme, which i like, on the new OTA GB deoxed, but it was written for the leaked GB froma week or so ago. What are the pitfalls of installing that theme over the new GB version that's deox?

    Lotsa q's, i know, but so very curious and dont' want to spend ALL my time, restoring, flashing, trying, restoring, flasshing, etc.

    Thanks!!!

    Think of it this way:
    Your Gingerbread Droid X is a shiny new car. But now you're thinking about adding the 'sport package'(theme). So you do it...So now you have a GB DX with a 'sport package'. And then you see this other new option, the 'Luxury package' and you want to add that theme to your DX...If you install the 'luxury package' on top of the 'sport package', you might have some remnants of the 'sport package' along with the 'luxury package' depending on how complete the new theme is....
    So, if you want to make sure you have one theme, and one theme only, my suggestion would be make a backup of stock GB and restore back to that each time you change to a new theme to make sure....

    Make sense?

    Yes, it does, but I'm still curious about restoring to a CW backup, won't I lose all data, settings, etc., that have changed since I made the back up?

    What are the pitfalls to installing a theme written for the previous GB leak from a week or so ago?
