There's no built-in option to change the theme on the stock Xperia. You can make significant changes to the UI if you use a home launcher app such as ADW or LauncherPro from Market if that will be enough for you. But if it's really the theme you want to change, what you have to do is replace the stock theme file called framework-res.apk located in your phone's internal memory at /system/framework/ with another framework-res.apk that's of a theme of your liking. But first, your phone needs to be rooted and have xRecovery installed.

This tutorial automates the replacement of framework-res.apk for you with a script:

No need to revive such an old thread! If you have problems with the x10 mini go to the x10mini forum. People who have that phone could help you more.
Also isnt changing a theme very easy? Go to theme choser and change it.
Did I post something useful??? Press thanks
