Default flash skin and themes compatible?

Just got my D2 yesterday(and loving every minute with her) and installed 3.54 with no problems. installed the vertical flash skin from fishfutter and looks great. my question is, can i put a theme(for 3.54) while having a flash skin installed? or doest have to be one or the other?

Both should work fine together. Flash is Flash, and skins are embedded in the firmware. The D2 doesn't even know about "skins" since it's just a hacked firmware file.

I thought I had understood these things, but looks like I have not - what is the difference between a Flash Skin and a theme? are they two different things?

(my NEW D2 8 GB is in the mail!)

theme is a design set for menus, buttons etc. flash skins are flash files that act as the music playback screen, i.e it doesnt affect the look of the menu etc only the music playback screen, and allwos for total configuration of music playback (it there are horizontal themes, themes with large album art etc)

Themes work on any firmware, as long as somebody made a fitting theme for a specific firmware version.

Flash skins are only available on the latest versions of the Korean firmware (and don't work all too well).
