How to Install Custom Themes on the HTC DROID Incredible 2


The latest and greatest version of HTC Sense comes with Skins support which allows you to change the look of your device. A bunch of cool skins were discovered for the HTC Thunderbolt and it’s been recently discovered that those same skins work for the HTC DROID Incredible 2 – no surprise considering how similar the phones are in both software and hardware.

They’re packaged as .APK files and you can install them just as you would any application. Just move them to your SD card, find them in a file manager of your choice and open it up to begin installation (you may need to enable your phone to install third party applications). Easy peasy and no root needed. After that, go to the personalize menu and select skins. You should now be able to see it in that list and apply it just as you would any of the HTC ones.

You can find a massive list of them over at XDA here and here. (And let us know if you find some cool ones). [courtesy of Droid Life]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Dear Quentyn,

    This video is mostly useless as it does not actually show “how to” do anything. Please give your post a more accurate title next time.

    Thank you.

  2. I agree…pointless video. Would be nice to it actually switch scenes.
