iam up and running file with the olleh image that i had previously

The reason i reset the phone was because the go launcher was not removed from the system and also because i was not able to see the top portion i mean the status bar in the sd4 version of venue

i will try to flash it again and keep you posted..

Tryed to Flash it again on my phone it did not work...

got stuck at the same dell logo... just does not go ahead of that....

what iam trying to do now would be to flash the stock rom and then try to flash it again...

lets see if it works...

Which stock file are you trying to flash? If it's a zip file then CWM, otherwise Fastboot.

OK. I am going to give you some basic guidance on the steps you should take but if it works (you get to SD4) and then for some reason the theme still doesn't work for you - then you should abandon the idea of installing this theme and just use Raven's or something different because I will not be able to help you due to my business travels.

I don't really understand where you currently stand. But let's start from the base point. First you need to use fastboot to flash the stock 408 recovery, and you can find it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/Dell_Venue
While you on that page download the 408 package, rename it to update.pkg and move it to your phone's SD card. (You may already have that there)

After you flash the 408 recovery image in fastboot you need to reboot (fastboot reboot) and when it tries to reboot you need to hold both volume buttons and power button to get to the screen where you are given a choice to install the software update (update sw package). Choose to install the update.pkg and let it load fully. Now you should be on stock Olleh 408 build. DO NOT do a factory reset.

Once you have stock Olleh installed and running, you need to install CWM by using the steps explained here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1423002

Now you should have CWM recovery installed and it is time to flash deodexed 408 ROM which you can find here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1416537

Let the deodexed ROM fully load. DO NOT do a factory reset.

Now you should have deodexed 408 ROM installed. Final ROM to install would be SD4 2.5.0. Just flash the StreakDroid zip and let it fully load. After it's been fully loaded, you may need to flash Superuser to root your Venue (in case SD4 doesn't come already pre-rooted). DO NOT do a factory reset.

Final step is to flash the theme zip via CWM - again do not do a factory reset.

If the theme still doesn't work - i.e. your status bar is messed up or something, just flash SD4 via CWM again and forget about my theme. And again, DO NOT factory reset. Best of luck and hope it works out.

One more thing: do not factory reset I am serious.

If CWM is working, just flash the Streakdroid or deoxed 408 ROM, then reapply the ICS theme.

I installed strekdroid and reapplied ICS theme, but now the blur android animation is just looping. Any ideas on that?

Sorry about your troubles, mate. With two major new ROMs avaiable for Venue now - MIUI and CM7 - I would just flash those instead of ICStocktheme. I like both of them, but prefer MIUI more at this time.
Just go to this link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1565517

and download the MIUI ROM to your SD card. Once you're in the CWM recovery before you flash the ROM zip, you need to :

1. Wipe data/Factory Reset in CWM recovery
2. Wipe Cache Partition
3. Wipe Dalvik Cache
4. Flash the zip
5. Reboot
6. Before booting to the ROM the first time, press power and volume up and down buttons to do a Factory Reset
7. Enjoy

There are a ton of themes available for MIUI (and for CM7 if you go that route) and you can even customize and mix/match between different themes.

If you don't like default MIUI launcher (which doesn't have the app drawer) you can install a launcher of your choice, like Go Launcher, ADW, and so on.

Good luck! I promise you you gonna like these new ROMs.

CM7 and MIUI are the way to go really.
