There's always a risk of updates overwriting patched files. Like everything else we just have to live with it. You'll need to go back and do whatever you did to install the theme in the first place all over again. Sorry!

Think your patched files have been overwritten by unpatched ones.
Patch them again and then apply the custom theme
