If you own an HTC Thunderbolt, and rooting is not your thing, but you still want to be able to change the look of your device beyond the options already available, you will be happy to know that more HTC skins have shown up. The process for downloading these skins is pretty simple, and in only a couple of minutes you should be all set and have the ability to change them on the go. The instructions are quite simple:
- Download Astro File Explorer from the Market
- Head over to this thread on XDA
- Download the .apk of choice
- Use Astro to navigate to the downloads folder of your SD
- Select the .apk, click install
- Go to home screen, press menu then personalization
- Select new skin from list
- Share your screen with us in the forums
While this doesn't allow complete control of the theme of the device, and there isn't much you can do to customize beyond what the theme brings, it certainly adds more options for those of us who wish to avoid rooting and flashing custom ROM's and themes. [XDA via Android Central Forums]
