    I can load themes. But can not revert back to default. Like others stated it is greyed out. I love my Cowboys theme but was wanting to get it back for the future update. I do not know what you guys are talking about with that code entry. What am I to do ? Will the update mess my phone up if I leave the Cowboy theme on there ? Is there another way that a non programmer or just phone stupid person like me can fix this ?

    You can get the "Revert" button back without removing the theme. The problem is that when the theme was installed the "theme.xml" file was not uploaded to the Pre. Here's what you need to do.

    1) With Preware, install the program - Terminal (it will also install a back-end service).
    2) Follow the instructions in the first post to create the "webos-quick-install" folder.
    2) Follow these steps:
    a) Download the theme you have in zip format (PreThemer.com allows you download themes directly to your computer) and extract the file "Theme.xml to your computer"
    b) In Dev Mode, connect your Pre and load WebOS QI.
    c) Go the the Tools menu and select "Send file"
    d) In the File window select the location on your CPU where you stored the "Theme.xml" document.
    e) In the Destination window type "/media/cryptofs/apps/usr/lib/webos-quick-install/
    f) Click "Send to Device" and exit QI.
    g) Restart your Pre and then connect to QI and go to Themer. You should now be able to "Revert to Default".

    Success ! Dude (solarus) you are a credit to this community and you have my personal thanks. What you do not understand is that if you were able to guide me through this ANYONE can do it. I hope this may help others that are not as knowledgeable. I feel like I have really done something. Ha haaa But you don't know how sweet it is to feel like I can keep using themes and get back where I want to be. Ohh and i am gonna check out Preware now. Now on the terminal app. Do I still need that and what does that thing do ? Thanks again !

    No problem - this was the first I discovered how to fix an issue so I know the feeling

    I would keep Terminal around - its quite useful when you need it, although you will probably not use very much at all.

    Solarus, you are amazing! I was SO frustrated by this whole theme process. I will never install another one! Your steps were incredibly easy to follow...even for a technophobe like me.

    Thanks!!!

    Hope I'm not duplicating anyone elses previously-posted findings. When I 1st tried this using the Terminal app (installed using webOS-Quick-Installer), it launched, but the instructions didn't work- sudo -i failed, couldn't remount /, couldn't change directory. Solution: I had failed to also install the Terminal Service Plugin. Without this plugin, the Terminal can only READ the filesystem. Both the Terminal app and Terminal Service Plugin are available from webosinternals.org.

    I am having a hell of a time removing a theme. I run QuickInstall and press revert to default. It replys back with "Theme removed". Phone resets, but icons/bootscreen/various reminants of theme is still present. Will I hae to load the default? Anyone have it so I can load it?! Thanks !

    what a load of crock. yeah i know i should have heeded warning. how long do i have to wait for revert to default to complete? been over 10 mins and still saying please wait. do i need to load theme again or can anyone give link to default ipk

    update:
    well something happened as original theme returned without telling me that theme was removed. i waited about 30 mins and pulled usb then restarted phone. original icons and theme returned so i did a partial reset and voila its all back. SOLARUS dude you a life saver. buy you a drink anytime

    The problem seems to be in the Terminal installation. Did you install "Terminal" or "Terminal Service Plugin"? If you installed Terminal and you don;t have an icon, try rebooting the phone. If that does not work then try removing Terminal in Preware and then re-installing using the following steps.

    1) Open Preware and install the Terminal Service Plugin first.
    2) Close PreWare and restart Luna or Reboot
    3) Open Preware and then install Terminal.
    4) Restart Luna or Reboot.

    If this works and Terminal is now installed, just follow the instructions in this post... http://forums.precentral.net/webos-t...ml#post2170885

    Hope this helps and yes I feel your pain, it took quite some time before I figured out how to get my theme off - after two trips to the Doc too.
