Why do theme's use so much memory?
I have been enjoying the rooted phone thing for a little while now and found a few themes that I really like, but one thing I have noticed is how my memory drops while using themes that I have flashed.
I don't get it, I thought I was simply replacing resource files for the GUI. Would this have to do with the optimization of the images?
Also, what are some of the lighter-weight themes for cyanogen? I'm not looking for anything über fancy, just clean and different.
