    So I have decided to just take the time to properly list the details on EXACTLY how to properly remove your themes because I am tired of reading posts day after day about people having problems with either installing or removing their homebrew themes.
    If you have a way of doing this other than what I have mentioned following please feel free to share so that others may share your knowledge.
    Please stop posting thread after thread about questions related to this!!!

    Installing with webOS Quick Install (WOSQI)
    There are 2 ways of installing themes via wosqi and this assumes that you already have wosqi on your computer and properly setup. If you do not please follow the instructions on this thread
    WebOS Quick Install


    1. Install using a zip file
    • These files must be downloaded directly from the website PreCentral or PreThemer
    • You can find the themes in PreCentrals theme gallery here.
    • You can find themes in PreThemers gallery here
    • Click on any theme you would like to install
    • Scroll down the themes page to the section called "Download Options" for PreCentral Gallery
    • Scroll down to the large button "DOWNLOAD" on PreThemer Gallery. A new window will open and you will have the option to download a zip or a ipk. Download the zip.
    • Click on the link located in this section
      • You will be downloading a zip file. DO NOT DECOMPRESS THIS FILE ONCE DOWNLOADED. LEAVE AS A ZIP FILE
      • Remember where you downloaded the file
    • Now open WebOS Quick Installer
      • Select the "Tools" pulldown menu
      • Select "Themer" within this menu
      • Now a new window called "Theme Settings" opens up
      • Select "Load Theme"
      • A browser window opens up. Hope you remembered where you downloaded the zip
        • Select the zip file and press "Select"
      • Once you have selected the file another window called "Theme Info" opens up.
      • Here you will able to see the information of the theme that you uploading including screenshots, basic info on the creator and also a button called "Set Theme"
      • Push the "Set Theme" button if this is the theme you want to install
      • A window pops up saying "Changing Theme" DO NOT DISCONNECT the phone or touch anything. Wait for the theme to load and let it do its work
      • Once it has finished working another window will pop up saying "Theming Complete" Press OK.
      • This will restart Luna and the phone and will set the theme.
      • Your phone will reboot with the theme and YOU ARE DONE!!!
    2. Install using an .ipk file
    • These files must be downloaded directly from the website PreThemer
    • You can find themes in PreThemers gallery here
    • Scroll down to the large button "DOWNLOAD" on PreThemer Gallery. A new window will open and you will have the option to download a zip or a ipk. Download the .ipk file.
    • Click on the link located in this section
      • You will be downloading an .ipk file.
      • Remember where you downloaded the file
    • Now open WebOS Quick Installer
      • In the main window select the large plus sign.
      • A browser window opens up. Hope you remembered where you downloaded the .ipk

        • Choose the .ipk file and press "Select"
      • Now that the file has been added to the queue window and your phone is connected via the usb cable. Press the large "Install!" button on the bottom of the window.
      • A popup window appears saying "Please wait..." So please wait and let wosqi do its thing.
      • The window will disappear and the phone will automatically restart. and YOU ARE DONE!!!


    Uninstalling with WebOS Quick Install
    This should ONLY be used with themes that are installed using wosqi. Do not use this for themes installed via Preware. This removes both zip files and .ipk files.

    DO NOT INSTALL NEW THEMES OVER OTHER ONES. This will cause your phone to install themes over each other and files will be permanently changed. Some files may be changed and will not be changed to the default using this method. You wil have to us WebOS Doctor otherwise. And this sucks.
    • Follow the above directions to get back into wosqi and to the Themer area.
    • The "Theme Settings" window will now give you an option to "Revert to Default" Choose this option.
    • Again the "Changing Theme" window will open. Let the program do its thing and do not touch/disconnect the phone.
    • Once it has finished a "Theme removed" window will appear. Press "Ok" and let the phone restart.
    • Once it has restarted the theme will be completely removed and you are set.

    Preware Theming
    Preware is a great application that has been contributed to the homebrew community and has made theming very simple to do for any user. This has also created problems for users that are unaware of some of the problems when it comes to theming. Please follow these instructions in order to put Preware on your phone

    • Wait for it to do it's thing.

    Can you install themes with patches already in place or should I uninstall patches before installing a theme? I am worried about the Luna Restart messing with my patches, specifically the virtual keyboard. Thanks for you help.
  6.    #6  
    This is not a straight yes or no answer. It depends entirely on the theme. Some themes make changes that could screw with patches while others do not. Personally if it's a theme you havent used before I would probably remove the patches just because you don't know what their theme does. Or you could email the developer and ask them.

    So, overall, I would say be careful. Ask the developer if they made any changes to the source code that would effect patches and if you don't email them then just remove all the patches first and then switch themes.

    I can't believe I'm doing this; I am a glutton for punishment.

    sam_inc, it appears that you unzipped the theme instead of loading it into webOS QI as a zipped folder. The instructions above explicitly state this. Go back to QI, select load theme, then find and select the zipped folder. Read the remainder of the instructions carefully and follow them exactly.

    ahhhhhh YES!!!!! well done cas_esq....he is trying to install the xml file and not the zip folder itself. well done. and yes...sam just try following the instructions exactly how I have posted up above. Thanks to cas and sam good luck and pm me if you need nething.

    As you have been told on multiple occasions, providing more information will result in a quicker, more constructive answer. If you are attempting to uninstall the theme through Preware, I will assume you installed it using Preware. (You wouldn't try to uninstall the theme using Preware if you installed it using QI because the instructions above explicitly tell you not to do that. Because you have listened to all of the advice you received in your multiple previous threads and heeded the admonishment of the moderator who closed your previous threads, I know that you have carefully read the information presented in this site, these forums, and this very thread. So, here goes . . . .)

    In Preware, go to Installed Packages, Theme, choose the theme, and then press Remove. Of course, if you need to uninstall the theme using QI, you will read the instructions above. If you get lost, you can then post a message giving details so that someone can quickly and efficiently help you. (I'm not going to go through what those details ought to look like; I and others have provided that info in your other threads.)

    After you installed the theme using Preware, did your phone restart? Did you see the theme on your phone?

    Then you will need to provide a detailed description of how you installed the theme. The installation of the theme should have resulted in a restart of your phone. In your next post, include the name of the theme and the steps you took to install it. Then include exactly what you've done to attempt to uninstall it. That will make it easier for someone to help you.
