You need root to use themes..about as close as you can get is to use next launcher and use a theme for that launcher..otherwise root your phone. You'll be happy you did.

How so? It automatically installs a recovery and cm11.he is already rooted. Cm11 doesn't come not rooted.

It must have rooted it automatically since I did nothing myself to root it. I checked with with a root checker and it popped up with superuser prompt then confirmed in do in fact have root access. Weird! What are the best themes (ie most stable)... Are there any disadvantages of switching themes?
