problems with flashing the theme

hi, i have some problems with flashing themes to my dhd. like the install instructions say, i flashed the latest leedroid hd v1.2 rom. everything works just fine after that. i am able to boot the phone and it works.
after that every time i try to flash the theme, at the first boot i get stuck at the green htc logo with the white background. at this point i am not able to turn off the phone anymore. i have to take out the battery and do a full recovery to be able to boot my phone again. i dont know if i am doing something wrong in the flash procedure. i am doing it the same way i flash the rom. i would be greatfull for some help. thx

Not working with Leedroid 2.3

i just flashed it with Leedroid 2.3 and it said completed.

Now it keeps coming to lock screen and in a loop :(

i guess it's not compatible with this version.

I just tried to flash the theme with LeeDroid 2.3b but it says "Can't open"...
My phone has AlphaRev s-off so I presume it's not a signature issue.

However, I installed LeeDroid after AlphaRev so I don't know if LeeDroid reset S-OFF to S-ON ?...

edit: it works fine with eskOdr0id black & blue theme. Strange... Do I need to install Espresso mod bar first ?

Flash has worked, zip must have been damaged when moved to SD card on first time.
Boot animation is working .... but that's all. Boot Anim is looping with SIM card not detected, boot anim restarting, then tells me no service again, then boot anim restart for a third time and then FC with a black screen...

What can I do?

Edit: I've been able to install simple Espresso Black linked on this post.

Tried again, no way to get Carbon working and not looping after first bootanimation.

I give up. :(

Loop problem

Same problem here,

Brightsilence_Carbon_Expresso_2.2a installs then boots up to the sim unlock screen and then reboot the phone and restarts the whole process again.

Using HTC Desire

Android version 2.2
Baseband Version 32.44.0032U_5.09.05.30_2
Kernel Version [email protected] #1
Build number 2.29.405.2 CL226611 release-keys
Software number LeeDroid V2.3b
Browser version Webkit 3.1


and yes i have cleared cache and Dalvik...

maybe a Kernel problem?

any ideas pls keep the comunity informed :)

    BrightSilence Black/Carbon Espresso v2.2a

    There is now a Carbon Espresso skin available for HD roms here!
    Thanks to sopL87 for porting it!

    Tested by me on:
    • LeeDrOiD 2.2f

    Should work on 2.10.405.2 Froyo Sense ROM's... Might work on earlier versions too. Does not work on based roms like AuraxTSense 7.7.
    On MCR ROMs, if you experience issues sending text messages, replace the mms.apk in system/app with the one from the MCR zip.

    The mod includes the following:
    • Two versions of the Espresso mod: Black & Carbon (The latter includes carbon elements for the Espresso interface)
    • Rebuilt from ground based on files from Froyo Sense 2.10.405.2
    • Circle Battery Version C
    • Fancy icon set by trinityEon
    • Blue elements by trinityEon
    • New bootscreen HTC + BrightSilence + Nexus animation
    • Custom boot sound
    • Homescreen Drag and Drop in helicopter view
    Black left | Carbon right


    More Carbon screenshots




    Install instructions

    Follow these to the letter and you shouldn't have any issues:
    • Install the latest LeeDrOiD version from here if you haven't already (recommended ROM, this step is not required as long as you have a Froyo Sense ROM)
    • Do a full boot into the LeeDrOiD ROM (This may take up to 15 minutes. Skipping this step will result in a boot loop!)
    • Reboot into recovery and run a nandroid backup!
    • Flash the BrightSilence Black/Carbon Espresso from recovery (make sure signature verification is turned off!)
    • Do another full boot (May again take up to 15 minutes, don't worry, it will boot fast again after this initial full boot)
    • Enjoy!

    Question about flashing


    I have a simple question about flashing this theme.

    I spent all day yesterday getting from .92 to .80 and rooting and flashing Leedroid and setting up all icons and homescreens and folders and what not.

    So my question is, if i flash this theme, what exactly will be changed on the phone, will it be wiped, reset home screens or do absolutely nothing? :p
    Just flashed the latest version looks and works great. One thing though you have done some great work but im not a big fan of the custom boot sound.
    Would i be able to change with winrar and get the old sound out of one of the previous versions and replace it?

    Yep, that would work just fine.
    @BrightSilence is there any chance of updating your wonderful themes to work on LeeDroid 2.3 a2sd+ 2.29.405.2 base?
    Hi to all!

    tried it on my ReflexTSenseHD v1.7 DHD port bot the phone hangs up on bootscreen. Does my Rom not support this mod? Which one should I use instead?

    I just flashed it in recovery mode.
    Did I do something wrong?

    Thanks for your help
