Hi guys i am fairly new here so i can nott ask the question on the relevant dev thread

i recently installed the: [ROM][CM7.2][RC4] Reincarnation Rom Series v.5 | Touchwiz Nature UX Edition [20/03/2014] onto my galaxy y

i would like to know if it is possible to install a CM7 theme straight on top of this ?

i really have no idea and i would appreciate some guidance

cheers BZ

you can install any theme chooser theme (most ldpi/mdpi themes will work - dont try hdpi only themes or higher)

there are loads on xda and the google playstore

just install and then apply the theme with the theme chooser app that already comes with cm7

After having a look through the app drawer and the settings it would seem that i have no theme chooser in this Rom

unless it is hidden somewhere or has been removed for stability maybe, i really don't know :/

any ideas are appreciated

some custom roms may remove it or hide it from launcher and place it in rom settings instead

look in system/app with a root browser
you should have
ThemeChooser.apk
ThemeManager.apk

if not you can try installing them with system app installer (playstore) or push to system and set permissions to rw-r-r and restart
iv included them in the attachment

if they dont install you will have to change to bieltv cm7 and not use port or custom versions
