Since Theme Manager is an app, it is OTA (over-the-air) update safe. When there is an OTA update to a newer version of webOS from your carrier/HP, you do not need to remove the app before updating. Themes applied with Theme Manager are also OTA safe. After an OTA update, you must re-apply the theme. Before updating to a new OTA, you might want to make sure that the themes you use are supported on the new webOS version.

Updated versions of Theme Manager can be applied via Preware.
