Default my rockbox theme does not look the same as the one uploaded

i follow this instruction to install rockbox and boy is it cool. but i have a few problem

1.the screen that you see when a song is playing is very simple. it does not look anything like

http://www.rockbox-themes.org/ind...176x220x16

it does not show the backward/forward arrow, battery, date, etc.

by simple i mean it just show
song/album/track/track timeline

2.how can i load preset equalizer


Code:
 a. Boot into original firmware (hold left << while turning on)
b. B4 connecting to PC, set USB mode (in Settings) to MSC
c. Attach to PC
d. Download Rockbox Utility
e. extract the zip file to your desktop
f. Check the notification area of your computer (icons next to the time). Some of them may be hidden, click the arrow to view all. If there is an icon like a red letter S on a white background scrolling down from top to bottom, the sandisk utility is running. You must close out of this. Right click on the icon and select exit.
g. Run (double click) the rockbox utility .exe file you downloaded
h. Format the Sansa drive (My Computer --> (right click on Sansa) --> select format -- OK 
***IMPORTANT***  Formant must be done here, before Autodetect but after starting the Rockbox Utility
i. Click File --> Configure --> Autodetect wait a little, select OK
j. Main Utility screen should come up with the top line "Selected device: Sandisk Sansa E200 at X:\" where X is the location of your sansa
k. Click Complete Installation and follow the prompts choosing to install everything possible. This will ensure that an uninstallation will remove everything you installed the first time.
l. Disconnect the Sansa using the Safely Remove Hardware utility in the notification area of windows (next to the clock, looks like a green arrow with a box under it. Left click and select the line with your sansa drive letters)

Try other themes the theme you are using must not be supported by that build

It was r17759 and r17763 that caused the issues with the themes. You need to update them somehow. It took my a while to fix my favorite theme working again.

The themes might work if you go back before r17759 because that is before the change.

Edit: It might be easier to just fix the theme like I had to.

You need to build your own built that is before that revision or go to the daily build and download one before that revision.

I think it is just easier to just fix the theme. You just read the CustomWPS wiki.
