    From what I understand it's not possible to change the color of the track ball yet without the sharpie method. Sorry!

    I don't even think there are multi coloured LEDs behind the trackball. There's no option to make the trackball light up different colours when the ringer goes off (like the pearl).

    Has anyone check on the 8800 Hardware to see if it got multicolored leds on the Trackball???

    If it does not... the software is just a waste of time.

    Cheers

    There's no option to make the trackball lightup different colours when someone calls. This option is available on the Pearl. That's why I don't think there are multi coloured leds behind the trackball. Someone can rip open their 8800 and verify. :P

    Re: Colour your Trackball...

    i posted a similar thread not too long ago because on the pinstack shop there is a colour pearl software that says its compatible with 8800's i have an 8830 and from what somebody replied back i learned that 8800's do not have the led's to make the colors change so its not a mtter of software as much as hardware but i would love to find out for sure. heres the link check it out

    hey guys I used to have the colour trackball for my pearl and it was sweet but unfortunately you can't do that with the 8800 series. There aren't any color LEDs in the back of them. The other only thing you can do to make your phone have color is getting the "status LED" to change color. I have that program and its sweet... It doesn't beat the color trackball but it is still different.

    The trackball on the 8800 series is not a multi colored LED. The trackball program will only change the LED in the upper right hand corner. As stated above, the Sharpie methodis the only way to change the trackball color.

    Sorry

    Sorry but it is not possible on the 8800. the LED in the 8800 is mono color - meaning that white is the only color option the LED can produce. i suppose you could replace the LED in the phone with one that has options but unless you can write the software to control the new LED your out of luck.
