Default How do I Install themes & Bootlogos?

Here are a number of ways to get the Prethemer.com themes on your phone:

  • Install Preware: This is the recommended method. Preware is an application much like the App Catalog which can install homebrew apps, patches and now, themes! Install the latest version on your phone, then navigate to the "Available Themes" option.
  • Use Webos Quick Install (WOQI): WOQI is a tool that does a lot for your phone, everything from installing tweaks to actually installing apps (and now themes). Download the latest version and then use a zip or ipk file from PreThemer to install the theme!
  • Manually (ADVANCED USERS): For the pros who may want to mix and match elements, you can download themes and bootlogos as a zip file and then either manually copy over the files using WinSCP or something similar - or you can edit the images and xml and rezip it to install with WOQI!

If you have any questions, feel free to post up!

Is there any way to restore the original WebOS theme after applying a custom theme using an ipk file? Thanks.

Is it possible to install the .IPK through the Terminal app on the Pre? If so, what are the correct commands to do that? Would it just be "ipkg -o /var install theme.ipk"?

Thanks!

I have honestly never done it, so I'm not sure. does calling ipkg run the postinst as well? If so, that should work

Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for any help!
