This isn't the source of the problem. This is just a warning which 
says (basically) that you didn't change the \ProvidesPackageRCS lines 
in the files you changed.  It is not an error, and can be ignored. 
(It's also easy to fix.) But my modified beamer themes all work, and 
throw up the same warning (since I forgot to change those lines.)

Since you are getting the default theme (although I'm not sure I know 
what that means for  you), there there's something else wrong with 
your document. Can you reduce your problem to a small single frame 
document and post it and the error log here? (Also put \listfiles as 
the first line of your document.)
