Custom Theme Friday: Black Ice Froyo V1.3

We initially had planned on doing a dual-Froyo theme Friday with this new Team Chaos theme and JRummy’s Kangerade, but Rummy’s is still going through some testing so it’s just this one for now. You can bet that we’ll have the Kangerade for you once he gets it finalized though.  With that said, check out the second Team Chaos theme of the week!

Theme:  Black Ice Froyo V1.3 by Team Chaos

Instructions…

*Note 1* – Make sure you have the updated version of ROM Manager.

1.  Open ROM Manager, select Download ROM and then Team Chaos.
2.  Choose Team CHAOS Froyo Themes.
3.  Then check the box for Black Ice Froyo V1.3 and select OK.
4.  When it finishes, check the box to make a backup if you do not have a recent one.
5.  You can skip “wipe data and cache” if already running another Froyo ROM.
6.  Hit “OK” to allow your phone to boot into recovery and work some magic.
7.  When it finishes, it will reboot and you should be Onix Froyo’d!

Full support thread for Team Chaos here.

Comments or questions?  I know I”m loving all of these new Froyo ROMs and themes.

  • Drw

    When I open ROMManager and go to Download ROM, there is no Team Chaos to choose from, Actually there doesn’t seem to be any ROM that are suggested by most of these posts. I don’t have JRummy either, just JRumm16 and the Rumm Rx v1.0. So while I’m here how does one get the ROMManager Premium to update?

  • spursrchamps2007

    Ok so I did a full wipe on my phone before I installed pete's latest froyo update. First time around this theme installed fine. Now I can't get past the moto load screen. I have seen other people with the same issue, anyone figure out why.

  • Ksmckay

    Noob question.

    Does installing a theme have anything to do with the base version. Meaning if I already have BB 0.1 running and then I install this will that change any of that or does it just modify whatever is already installed on the ROM to apply the new theme.

    Kind of like when you install the new basebands it affects a different part of the ROM then where the BB 0.1 is running.

    Thanks

  • Damonlbeaty

    Major Battery Drain! Dont know why, have been running this since it came out and seems like just in the last day my battery wont stay charged for long at all! Anyone else having this problem?

  • tonytbone7883

    When I do what the instructions say I get a “abort” unable to open file, bad file. Whats up??

  • Buuishere

    how do i put this theme on???

  • otter34

    I'm going to finally root. Just so I'm clear, can someone please verify the steps?

    I know I follow the guide below to to flash SPR. Then I need to install a rooted ROM. Do I install a 2.1 ROM or 2.2, or does it matter? And which do I choose?

    1. “Guide to rooting Android 2.1 on Motorola Droid” http://www.droid-life.com/2010/05/06/guide-to-r

    What's next with regards to downloading kernels, ROMS, themes, etc….that don't have any bugs? I have been reading a lot of these forums the past few weeks and it's come to a point of confusion. I know there were some bugs in the google maps app as well as some bugs in the new bugless beast and the themes from last week so now I have too much information in my head and don't know how to process it!

    When I install a 2.2 kernel does that mean I'm overclocked or do I have to adjust the settings somehow to become overclocked? Which one should I choose?

    Which theme would you recommend?

    • root4life

      me personally i always use cyanogen or buglessbeast. as far as the new bb i havent tried it due to it bein brand new.that said bb is an awesome rom.

      • otter34

        Thanks. I was leaning towards bb. Will I have to reprogram my phone? I sure don't want to have to call Verizon!

        • Chris Nimon

          If you have to reprogram youll know it when your phone reboots. Whenever I have to do it I just click “touch the android” symbol and press 1 when it tells me and that normaly takes me about 30 seconds. Option 2 is to skip the programming part http://www.droid-life.com/2010/06/10/tip-how-to… and dial *228 after boot.

  • Socaliabs

    after installing this rom ,my droid seems to take a long time to charge and display the wrong percentage of the battery – what shall i do?

  • Mrlamotte87

    When install from ROM Mgr everything is good…im signed into Gmail and the Market opens up except for when i go to my downloads all of my paid apps are downloading at the same time with no progress. I can cancel all the downloads except for one of my games, it FC the market when i try to cancel it…any ideas as to why that is doing it???

    • Chris Nimon

      Mine kept doing that so I used the pull down menu and kept hitting clear. then went back into the market and updated 1 or 2 at a time. It seemed like it was trying to update too many at once and was locking up. Anyway this is what worked for me.

    • Terry

      After updating to this rom I can not longer download updates from the market. Everything else seems to be running fine.

  • iammebane

    IS THERE A FIX FOR GOOGLE MAPS……

        thanks bro…..i have no idea about any of that….. i was so lost…..i will keep reading… thanks again'

        • Chris Nimon

          I tried both the chaos clean black and the onix themes and they gave me back maps and navigation

  • Paintballxkid21

    is anyone having the problem that once it goes to reboot it doesnt leave the “M” screen

  • J Scott Gwin

    Outstanding!!! Running this on FRF57 without any issue. Hell, even the installer is tricked out. Thanks guys.

  • Smokeeater218

    Why doesnt it have navigation and google maps? This is a deal breaker for me. Too bad because it is a great looking theme.

  • Fireproof1905

    I can't get mine to boot into backup at all when i try to download and installl.. I'm using that latest froyo on my droid. any ideas???

    • Phillip

      try flashing alternate recovery, then flash the newest clockwork mod recovery. then retry downloading and installing whatever rom you want.

  • FP101

    Anytime I try to download this ROM or any other ROM for that matter, I get an error message and the download aborts. I'm running 2.2, BB V0.1. Any help please?!

  • FP101

    Whenever I try to download anything from the ROM Manager, I get an error message and it aborts the download. I've tried this download twice now to no avail.

    Any suggestions? I'm running 2.2, Baseband C.01.41.00R, Kernel 2.6.32.9-g103d848 [email protected]#1, BB V0.1

    Help please!

  • Pimp Steak

    I have the updated version of ROM & paid for the Premium version but I cannot access anything under ROM Management. Therefore, I cannot tap on “Download ROM. Any ideas?

    • dpu328

      You wont have options if SP is flashed. Make sure you flash clockwork

  • Pdroid00
  • Thegoldendroid

    Simple question: Can anyone suggest the smoothest and quickest froyo ROM in Rom manager with a black or colored notification bar? Just throw one out there.. everytime I seem to try one it has a stock look! THanks!

    • Put on bugless beast v 0.1 froyo, then put Team Chaos black with stock icons over it.
      Looks great 🙂

      • Thegoldendroid

        Tim thanks so much. I know you're one of the celebrities on this board…But can both of those be found on the ROM manager.. whenever I try downloading and transferring stuff things get a little crazy so i wanna keep it simple and easy…Im not trying have my cake and eat it too am I?

        • haha thanks man. Well heres the thing, we wanna get you set up to the point where
          you can have the cake and eat the whole damn thing lol
          Both items (bugless beast v 0.1, and team chaos black) can be found in ROM Manager
          Premium.

          First you throw on the bugless, then you open up the team chaos section, and scroll down to froyo themes and find the clean black with stock icons…
          And there you go. And also, its super easy since if coming from another froyo rom then there is
          no need to wipe anything. Just make a backup just incase 🙂

          Have fun!!

          • Thegoldendroid

            Android is like that rich grandpa who just spoils the hell out of you… he just keeps giving and giving…Bugless Beast has always been my favorite so Im doing it now. But man Froyo is fast. My quadrant benchmark tests just keep getting higher and higher everytime I do em..IM coming from Onix so Im sure this will be smooth as pudding.. Thanks so much for the formula.. I can't wait until JIT comes out!

          • And this is only the first release. It will only get better and better.
            In Pete we trust! 😛

          • Thegoldendroid

            I was showing off my old bugless beast to a buddy of mine after a couple drinks and he so innocently said “This really is a bugless beast”.. I thought it was highlarious.. Pete is a wizard.. I can only imagine where its gonna go from here

          • machinegun68

            Sorry to butt in here, but how do you apply theme after the download? Sorry kinda new at this.

          • From Rom Manager 🙂

      • Chris Nimon

        I'm skeptical to load that with all ive heard so for. lets see a screenie, maybe that'll make up my mind.

      • Pdroid00

        I already have a froyo. Do I need to wipe data before I run.

        • Noooope 🙂
          But hey, make a backup just incase 😉
          Have fun! Play safe!

      • Thegoldendroid

        Guys I feel like an old black lady in a southern baptist church cause I need to testify! I just installed this combo and its insane..Did an immediate quardrant test and its at 1027 ( and you know it gets faster and faster) Thanks so much Tim for the combo this will definitely keep me happy for the next 48 hours 😉

        • haha nice!
          I'm boasting 17 MFLOPS running at 1000mhz
          and 1450 in quadrant….lovin it 🙂

          • Thegoldendroid

            Ok I just need to know how.. cause that combo you gave me can only be overclocked to 800mhz. 11 mflops and 1000 in quadrant. How do I get it faster? What are you using? what has a faster kernel? These are things I need to know immediately..Whatever ROM i gotta switch too is fine!

  • droid

    This sucks!!!! eveytime I try to download a theme from rom mgr. it downloads i go into recovery and it aborts install… i tried black ice , jsinlegacy iron man same issues… can anybody help? please

    • Chris Nimon

      for some people updating ROM Manager and reflashing clockwork has worked. Others have had luck with using alternate clockwork recoveries such as 1.8.1.3

  • ejmccarty

    hey guys im kinda new to the world of rooting and this is the first time i've ran into a major problem. i've been trying to install the team chaos red rum theme. right now i am currently running the blue energy theme with bb v0.1 and it's super fast. my problem is when i'm trying to install the theme. i've downloaded it from rom manager wiped data and cache and backed everything up but it keeps saying “installation aborted” “bad” so i tried to manually install it to sd card and came to the same trouble. i was just wondering if im doing something wrong. any suggestion would be helpful. thank you. droid for life brothaaas

  • Kraymanbauer

    Now not able to restore at all. Boots in the black ice rom over and over again. Deleted all from sd card. Attempted to dl bb and chose to install and still get team chaos rom. If anyone has an idea that would be money. Anyone else having issues?

  • blackcatroad

    Anyone having issues installing this from ROM Manager (where it just ends up rebooting or can't get into recovery) try this:

    Go into ROM Manager – Scroll down to “All ClockworkMod Recoveries” – tap that and then choose 1.8.1.3. I flashed that and was able to get the phone to boot into recovery and install from the ROM Manager.

    • Ninjah

      yep im still having this issue, ill try that see what happens…

  • Chuck

    I'm running BB, and I was trying to download this theme! When i got to the rom manager it said i needed to download the newest version…tried to do that but in my app market it just contiously saying starting download, but never does! I tried to download another app just to see, and it still does it for that one as well!! Can anyone please help with this issue??

  • Flyinion

    Well, I know it's not this new Froyo theme or 2.2 but woot I just overwrote “rooted” 2.1 with my first real ROM. Chose JRummy's the Shiz blue to start with the stock kernel (haven't bought setcpu yet to monitor temps on an OC kernel). Everything came up fine without a data/cache wipe as well. Now to keep my eye on the 2.2 ROMs. I think being new to this I kinda want to wait for some of the kinks that sound like they're still around to get worked out first 🙂

    • Chris Nimon

      Feels good, dont it. congrats.

  • Chris Nimon

    just loaded the ONIX theme. very plain but it keeps the navigation app

  • jackadams

    Motorola shadow has already available in the market. As per my knowledge the Motorola Shadow aka the Droid X, which is basically a Droid, sans-keyboard is set to launch in July with its “shadow BLUR” UI and Android 2.1. The more exciting news for you Droid 2 fans is that the phone is set to launch in August with Android 2.2!

  • so..i tried flashing over to this, with the most recent ROM Manager + ClockworkModRecovery. I'm coming from the Blue Electric theme, and it just sat at the Motorola M for at least 15 minutes, before i got fed of with seeing it and rebooted and restored my backup.

    anyone else having the same issue?

    • Kraymanbauer

      Yeah man me too! Trying all night morning to fix it. Flashing and recovering to death. Tried team chaos help thred. Failed to download. Going back to bb 2.2 now. Droid fa life!

    • Michele

      how do you get it off the m? i just tried to install this rom and and i forgot how to reboot, please help

  • Flyinion

    Anyone else getting a message from ROM Manager that an update for it is available? I'm running 1.8.8.6 and when I go to the Market that's the same one that's out there. I did update it earlier in the day. Does this mean there really is a new update but it's not on the market yet?

  • Adamania

    Quick question. I went into ROM Manager to flash to Stock 2.2 and I got a notification saying, “There is an update available for ClockWorkRecovery”. How do I do that? There wasn't an option.

    • duckphan

      go to the bottom of rom manager screen and the option is there to flash clockwork recoveries or something like that. click it and it gives you options

      • Adamania

        Thanks dawg.

        • duckphan

          no prob. Now if I could get some help too LOL!

    • Chris Nimon

      you can just click on the notification also

  • duckphan

    HELP! I am running Froyo with root and flashing the most recent clockwork mod, and have an up to date rom manager. I currently show I'm NOT running a rom, and when i try to install this or any other rom from rom manager it goes to CM recovery then aborts and asks me to reboot. What am I doing wrong? Wipe data, cache, and factory reset every time. whats up with that?

    • Chris Nimon

      My ROM Manage came up as up to date but just to make sure I checked my downloads in the market and ROM Manager had an update. to 1.8.8.6 it also says something about breaking your recovery.
      http://i596.photobucket.com/albums/tt50/chrisni

    • Chris Nimon

      I get it now, Its saying to (in ROM Manager) flash the alternate recovery and then flash back to clockwork mod

      • duckphan

        Thanks for the help. I tried that and it didn't work either. I just saved to my sd card and installed from there. Thanks Chris

        • Chris Nimon

          so you got it to work?

          • duckphan

            Yeah I got it working. But for some reason when I open rom manager it doesn't show that I am running a rom. therefore, it won't let me back up my rom. Any ideas?

          • Chris Nimon

            blackcatroad up above posted that he opened rom manager and scrolled down to all clockwork recoveries and installed 1.8.1.3 and were then able to boot into recovery and install from rom manager.

  • Djrachelamaya08

    And google maps?

  • Just tried to install it, but after the reboot everything was exactly the same. Cleared download cache and trying again…

    • OK, just tried to install again and got the same thing. For some reason this theme just won't take on my phone.

    • Got it working thanks to a quick reply by bgill, just needed to reflash my recovery. One thing that really should be mentioned about this theme, the boot animation is SICK!

  • Djrachelamaya08

    Is there a way to get navigation back with this theme or the red rum I like both but cant seem to get navigation

    • Chris Nimon

      I cant get mine back either

      • Djrachelamaya08

        I have the ffr57 froyo and it works perfect i just wanted a theme and I like these ones but i NEED google maps might have to go back until its fixed unless there is an easy fix

        • Flyinion

          Is navigation in the basic 2.2 and just missing from these themes or is it missing from 2.2 altogether at this point? If it's missing altogether then I think I'm gonna end up with a 2.1 ROM until the 2.2's get some more things worked out.

          • Djrachelamaya08

            Well its on my stock 2.2 froyo the second release the ffr57 or whatever it is. With these themes for me the maps and google navigation is not working but the actual car navigation still works just not the google stuff can anyone help with this I like the themes but this is a dealbreaker for me I need those 2. Anyone? Probably just going to backup to the 2.2 no theme *sigh*

          • Djrachelamaya08

            Maybe if I wipe data and cache? Does that mean I have to input all my settings again?

          • Chris Nimon

            i havent wiped since first going to froyo but when i did a restore it kept most of my stuff but i dont really know.

          • Djrachelamaya08

            Just seems to be this theme for no maps unless I wipe cache and data but then I have to reinput ALL my settings and its a big hassle. I have the blue energy theme now and its pretty sweet and everything works.

          • Chris Nimon

            I was unable to get it back so i loaded the onix (very plain) and the clean black themes and they both keep the navigation

          • Chris Nimon

            not positive but i think i had it with the droidlife froyo rom. I still have maps and can navigate from there i just dont have the little triangle app to put on my desktop. I believe i lost it when i first installed chaos clean black theme. so you can definitely navigate.

          • Djrachelamaya08

            With the black ice it says google maps not installed. It downloads but wont install. The car navi works I just want google maps any ideas? And I have the droidlife froyo rom. Hmmm.

          • Chris Nimon

            try going into your settings/applications/maps. try install if not installed. uninstall then install if it is. i dont think anybody has been able to install from the market.

          • Djrachelamaya08

            not even in the app drawer

          • Flyinion

            Thanks guy look like I'm going to see about checking out at least the base frf57 froyo ROM.

    • Chris Nimon

      the chaos clean black and the onix themes keep the navigator

  • Ok, so this is slightly out of place, but been having a weird issue with Froyo BB v.1…is anyone else having this?:

    I installed the ROM, updated to a P3 kernal (125/1100), updated flash player, maps, and all the other problem apps, no problem. But I kept getting a low disk space message. I had a lot of apps, so i figured that was it and i just installed a few….but then I'd keep getting it. I looked into it some more, and my “Contacts Storage” is MASSIVE at 57.02 MB (56 MB of data), and growing by a few MB every hour. I'm afraid to “clear data” on it, because I really don't know what that would do to all of my google cloud data. So, 2 questions…(1) is it ok to “clear data” on that, or will I lose everything, and (2) is this normal? I usually paid pretty close attention to my storage space before rooting and installing the BB ROM, and I've never noticed my contact data file being this massive. How do I fix this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    • toysdroid

      I dont know but I know if I go into a contact I have the contacts information 5 different times. Im going to have to go in an manually delete it. It may have to do with every time you wipe data and then google syncs again.

      • Chris Nimon

        i got the same thing. was wondering about that too. let us know if you figure it out

      • Ahhhhahah. I figured it out. Of course, it had nothing to do with BB, and everything to do with my own ineptitude; I installed that Socialite Facebook app (the LG port that Kellex recommended awhile back), and it was syncing freaking EVERYTHING, apparently, about my FB friends…so I'm no longer syncing that app at all. I cleared the data; should be fine. If anyone has that app, I recommend you don't allow it to sync at all…even disable “sync with current friends”…it's a massive data waster.

    • Chris Nimon

      I had problems with that too. first try rebooting. in the end i think i had to log out of it on my computer then activate on phone.

    • Jamerson90

      Are you running Frfxx or Frf57?

      • Richd36

        Yes and it was working…but then I installed Clean Black with Stock Icons over it and now its not working

        • Richd36

          Sorry Frf57

          • Jamerson90

            I'd say try running BB with your current theme. Make sure to make a backup before you install it.

        • Jamerson90

        • Jamerson90

          I've got mine working on MrB's Onix 1.1 with his BlackModdzFroyo theme overlayed

          • Chris Nimon

            lets see a screenie of that

          • Jamerson90

            Pretty simple actually. head over the here http://bit.ly/dpNG34. The first 8 screen caps are of my droid. I sent them in to kellex. The last 2 are of his Incredible (notice different movie app). It has a cleaner looking lock screen, and sense ui type notification bar. I like it because it keeps stock app icons. I don't really like the custom ones. they just look out of place in a sea of apps.

  • adam

    i tried installing another rom and my phone doesnt reboot into recovery….any suggestions?

  • Dpu328

    Did all the flashing, flashing and booting. I can only Boot Recover in SP. Everything is up to date

  • Dpu328

    This looks really cool. I just wish I could boot into recovery. There are a lot of us out here stuck not begin able to boot into recovery. We need a hero.

    • Chris Nimon

      just replied to your last comment. try that.

    • Jamerson90

      Go to Rom Manager, flash SP recovery, then flash ClockworkMod recovery. worked for me and lots others

  • Chris Nimon

    My screenies look nothing like Kellex's. Do I have some kind of hybrid bastard child? Last night I flashed the JRummy Kangerade then flashed the black ice. Its like they combined or somethhing. Any Ideas? Everything works perfectly though.

      You have the ADW launcher but he isn't running that. But I dont know why the background where your apps are is bright blue, mine is black and Im also running ADW.

      • Chris Nimon

        your app drawer and the desktop launcher are completely customizable. just hit settings then adw settings, drawer settings. you can change background color, number of apps in rows and columns, wether you scroll vertically or horizontally.

    • Jamerson90

      You've got easytether and barnacle?

    Can someone help? The installation keeps aborting, saying the file is bad… any ideas?

    • Chris Nimon

          Im assuming your on the newer 2.2 and already rebooted and tried again. theres a 2.1 version and a froyo version, sure you got the right 1? (we are talking about this theme right?)

          • Andrew

            I'm on BB v0.1 froyo

          • Chris Nimon

            do you have a backed up froyo rom? you could go back then apply the theme.

          • Andrew

            Now I can't do anything, android.process.acore keeps force closing… I have no idea what to do. Pretty sure my phone is screwed.

          • Chris Nimon

            U shood still be able to restore by holding X. while powering on if nothing else. At least then u could restore the droidlife 2. 2 rom

          • Andrew

            tried it several times and still got everything force closing when i tried to boot. did a factory reset… seems to be working so far… now i just gotta redownload all my apps… what a bitch.

          • Chris Nimon

            what happened when you did the factory reset? never heard of that actually being done. did it take you back to 2.1? Maybe you can restore a saved froyo rom now.

      • Andrew

        I'm running BB 0.1 froyo btw, and I rebooted it to try again and now my phone is force closing every program that tries to start… I'm about to lose my mind

      to the right of your screen theres a link to DroidLifes How to root your motorola DROID. you wont find any clearer or more detailed videos anywhere.

      • evltwn

        If you're nervous about rooting, watch the videos a few times. Thats what I did. Droid-Life and Kellex have made rooting the Droid less complicated.

  • Dpu328

    Can't boot into recovery. Flashed sp and clock several times

    • Chris Nimon

      updating or reloading ROManager seems to work for most people with that problem.

      • evltwn

        i am having the same problems. i sent an email to Koush and he said to re-flash a different recovery, then flash clockwork. he says it happens to 5% of owners.

  • Flyinion

    Hey guys got a quick question about the “stock 2.1” “root”. I took a camera pic last night, first since rooting, and it is not showing in the gallery app. I had to use Astro to find it while trying to send a pic message. Is this just because I'm on the 'rooted' 2.1 and it's not really meant for real use and has some bugs like this? Or do I actually have some problem. The new pic is in the same folder as all others in the “camera” gallery folder.

    • Flyinion

      Nevermind I just restarted my phone (hadn't tried that yet) and it showed up. A new test pic I just took also instantly showed up. Guess something just got hung up.

  • tonytbone7883

    Anyone try this theme with launcher Pro Beta? What does it look like

    • Lt Cobra

      yes, it looks the same you just get sms icon and contacts icon in the bottom

      • tonytbone7883

        Can the browser and phone icon at the launcher be changed? there just gray now. at least in the image on the droid-life site. Do you know where there are more images?

        • evltwn

          you can long press the “fixed” icons in the tray at the bottom of the screen. click on the applications on the pop-up to select a shortcut. when you select the app you want on the fixed icon tray it will give you an option on how the app looks.

        • Lt Cobra

          yes they can be change

  • Lt Cobra

    cant installed google map

  • LtCobra

    google map doesn't work with this rom i can installed

    • evltwn

      it has maps already installed. it won't let you install any update. plus there's no navigation icon in the app tray.

  • Flyinion

    Ok just want to make sure I understand everything right since this looks awesome and I am dying to try Froyo :). I'm sitting at the rooted 2.1……still……yes I know, been a busy week since I rooted Tuesday night lol. I was going to just grab a 2.1 Cyanogen ROM and blue energy because of all the problems the Froyo builds seemed to be having. From what I'm reading here it's just install the 2.2 Froyo from “stock roms” in RM and then install this theme right? How is that Froyo build running? Are all the maps, market, contacts, dissappearing apps issues resolved?

    • caphoagie

      im running 2.2 that you talking about run nice i have not had one problem

    • SFC Airborne 51

      I changed to this theme and my apps sopped working

      • SFC Airborne 51

        I typed that wrong, I changed to this theme and my market app stopped working. I am currently restoring to my previous backup to make sure everything is good. If it works after I do a restore then I know this theme messed up the marketplace. I am using the Froyo build from this post http://www.droid-life.com/2010/06/05/download-a… and using the Custom Chaos Black theme that has had zero issues. I really like this new theme but if the marketplace doesn't work it makes it kind of useless.

        UPDATE: After doing a recovery to my previous ROM and theme my marketplace is working with no issues. It is definately a problem with this theme. Cannot use until that is fixed.

  • tonytbone7883

    very nice, so this is a theme on top of 2.2 Froyo? Right? Any issues yet?

  • Rojain

    Same thing for me….not sure what to do

  • blackcatroad

    Why do so many themers love blue? Gaaaah.

  • crucifix13

    definitely liking Team Chaos' Red Rum theme. alot better than this one, honestly. just an opinion.

  • hawaiianbrowneyez05

    sorry about that… it died and i had it plugged into the computer and it wasnt charging it i guess

    • caphoagie

      dont scare us like that. lol

    • nkhex19

      Glad its not bricked. Good to hear its up and runnning. 🙂

    • Make sure to always have more then 30% battery life before performing these tasks…
      Some people say 20…but screw them. PLAY IT SAFE! 🙂

      • nkhex19

        Good advice Tim, I usually don't flash anything either if my battery is 40% or less. Too risky for me.

        • evltwn

          I always make sure i'm greater than 80%. don't want to risk any shut-downs.

  • hawaiianbrowneyez05

    this rom just bricked my phone… it wont come back on

    • hawaiianbrowneyez05

      is there anything i can do kellex

      • Seriosuly?? What happened?

      • nkhex19

        Did you try a battery pull? Flashing a theme shouldn't brick your phone. If anything it should just cause a bootloop if anything.

        • Wow…the battery died he says….LOLZ!!! 😛

  • I have installed several different “colors” of this theme and it seems like every time it changes my froyo version back to the xxx build even though I had the 557 running before I installed it.
    Does that make sense to anyone?

  • nkhex19

    I am running Kangerade Test 5 from JRummy and its FAST!!! Smoothest Rom I have ran to date, haven't tried the new BB yet but I'm gonna stick with the Kangerade for awhile. Really impressed with it. JRummy is working on some themes for it which should be released soon.

  • t0ni

    I swear kellex hates me!! I posted on the DL facebook page, asking for ideas on 'good' themes, and said no black ice please… =))

    • kellex

      Hah sorry, I usually don't get to Facebook until the evenings. 😛

      • t0ni

        Ohhhhh, nice! I don't want to be hated by you anyways, your becoming quite famous!

        • He's cooler then most celebs if you ask me lol

          • t0ni

            Definitely cooler! Droid Life.com peace! That plays in my head
            sometimes…hahahha!

          • To take it to a new level, you know what plays in my head sometimes? The shower scene from Starship Troopers 😛
            lolcano! roflcopter! lol

  • Help…. I did this coming from BB 0.1 Froyo, and it downloads when I select backup and install, it reboots phone, the M logo shows waits for 2 minutes, restarts and just boots back into the phone, no Clockwork Mod…. there was a new version of recovery that I updated and a new version of rom manager but its still just rebooting.

    • Bricked………………jk 🙂
      Battery pull…..then reboot…

    • Same thing happened to me, bro. Boot back up, go into rom manager and re-flash to clockworkmod then try it.

  • fred114

    OK, probably the dumb question of the day, but I will ask it. I am rooted 2.1, can I just download this? will this take me to 2.2 or do I need to convert to 2.2 first? Thanks for any help.
    Fred

    • caphoagie

      no you have to have 2.2 first this is just a theme over the rom

    • nkhex19

      This is a theme for Froyo so you must be running Froyo before you install this. There is a Froyo stock build in Rom Manager under stock images.

      • fred114

        Thanks guys. Didn't know I could just get 2.2 from ROM manager. Man they make it easy for old farts like me. 🙂

        Thanks again. 2.2 here I come

        • evltwn

          I think you need to update the baseband setting too. I did. I updated twice. More bars in more places 🙂 Good luck.

  • Darkcomartist

    OMG, I'm rooted and I've OCed before but this is my first rom and it looks SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe I've been missing out on this.

  • Could have done their Red Rum Theme also. I tried this one when I first got Froyo and moved to Clean Black and still there.

    Haven't moved to BB yet. Waiting for everything to get fixed before I jump.

    • timarnette

      Love BB. The Best yet!!!

  • Adam

    FYI, using Rom Manager, the .zip of 2.2 Team Chaos Froyo rom failed on me. Showed as a bad version of the .zip.

    • Adam

      Had to download .zip and update manually – worked just fine.

  • Ace Z.

    I think BB has the best Froyo ROM. Others tend to lock up on me…what you think Kellex?

    • I know I'm not Kellex…but I agree with you. I can't wait for themes 🙂

      • maizekidstill

        I would have to disagree, just my opinion but I am running team chaos rom with the clean black them and it is quick as all can be with no issues. Just an opinion though.

        • I ran it for a little bit, and I wont knock it…I loved the Chaos Star in the note bar….but, I am loyal to Pete.
          lol

        • caphoagie

          thats what im running no complaints here.

  • Sean

    I assume it can still run the overclock kernels posted last week?

  • evltwn

    I had it on my Droid, but I went back to stock and am going to download Blue Energy. I like it better when I was running BB w/Blue Energy.
    On a side note, anyone having issues with ROM manager? It won't run Fix Permissions. I did the update, but no help.

    • Puck3511

      Im having issues flashing themes thru rom manager (chaos themes) for froyo. I have to dowload theme then manually boot into recovery, find theme and install that way. Anybody know why or how to fix this?? HELP PLEASE!?!?!

  • Adamania

    Now is this an entire ROM or just a theme? And coming from root 2.1 is okay?

    • evltwn

      it's a theme that goes over Froyo.

    • Puck3511

      Just a theme Adamania

      • Adamania

        Hey, Puck is my dog's name! Haha 😀

  • YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY Thank you Kellex :DDDD 😉

    I am sooo running this one. 😀

  • Stephen

    This isn't too bad…A little bright IMO. The Blue Energy Theme by RoberJ13 is pretty sweet though. Much more mellow blue theme.

  • caphoagie

    I'm running there clean black theme love it maybe I will try this only next week.

  • Holding back vomit….also first 😛

    • kellex

      Haha too funny.

      • All I want is a freakin' BLACK notification bar!! Is that sooo hard?!? 😛
        Thanks for postin Kelll.

        Have a safe and happy Froyo filled weekend!!!

        • Ludacrosse05

          I too only want a black notification bar.

        • Then theme it yourself…. 😉

          • You're gonna be sorry you said that because once you see Tim-o-tato ROM's on ROM Manager, you know this world is going to hell….
            My themes will be named….”Blacker Than Black”…”Porno Mania”…”Platinum Grillz”….and “Kentucky Fried Froyo”

            End of story…now I just need to learn Java LOL 🙂

          • Kentucky Fried Froyo… Why do I see this as the next food craze at the county fair, lol.

          • I'll take the Porno Mania

          • blackcatroad

            How about a Pabst Blue Ribbon Theme? I've already made the wallpaper. 😉

          • Let's see it! 😛

          • blackcatroad
          • I'm running this for the weekend. Party time!

    • duckphan

      Tim-o-tato or someone HELP! I am running Froyo with root and flashing the most recent clockwork mod, and have an up to date rom manager. I currently show I'm NOT running a rom, and when i try to install this or any other rom from rom manager it goes to CM recovery then aborts and asks me to reboot. What am I doing wrong? Wipe data, cache, and factory reset every time. whats up with that?

      • Tim-o-tato

        Tim here….sorry i am at my girlfriends house and am basically useless…
        If by tomorrow you still need help, let me know because I'll be home.
        Hope you figured it out, or can stick it out 🙂
        Sorry…

        • duckphan

          I had to download and install from my sd card and got it working. Now it won't let me backup my rom, but everything else is working great. Thanks for getting back to me

          • Is everything working now for you? 😛

          • duckphan

            Thanks for your responses and sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. It finally let me make a backup through rom manager. Sooooo yes, everything is working great thanks! Do you know why I have like 10 “diskcacheindex12345” files on my SD card? Can I delete them or not? Thanks tim-o

      • Djrachelamaya08
