not sure why DXLC1 bootloops. It may be impossible to get a logcat in this situation too. Wonder what would happen if you flashed my latest XXKL3 Deodexed /system & /framework?
Also try only wiping "cache" from CWM before flashing theme.
It just may not be compatible with your firmware. Wish I knew why.
As for me doing any work on CM9, I will help where I can, but I have very little free time, and my home internet connection cannot meet the demands setting up a build enviornment and building would require.
If we had sources, I would give it more of a shot, becuase Im a kernel N00b, Id be totally lost.
