It seems that the bookmarks get synced but my themes do not... I already have ensured that under the settings, the themes checkbox is checked. I referred to this: Syncing Google Chrome. What else need to be done?

Have you tried to disconnect from your Google account, restart Chrome, and try again? – amiregelz Jul 19 '12 at 16:19

Do the following on every device using chrome.

  1. Disconnect your accounts from chrome. This can be done in "settings" / Sign in options
  2. Clear all settings from the beginning of time. "tools" / "clear browser data" / check everything, and select from the beginning of time.
  3. re-sync your account. Choose whatever you want. I like to sync it all...
  4. Close chrome once sync is done.
  5. Sync in to another device. (again, make sure you follow steps 1-3 on all devices)
  6. Try theme changing.

Note that this will only work if theme was installed from the Chrome Web store

does this work for custom themes or for any theme in general? – lakesh Jul 19 '12 at 18:02
