    Do you have access to a PC computer? I am just curious if themes install properly with Desktop Manager.

    Something else when you browse to the themes from the Pearl's web browser are you downloading OTA themes? I am wondering if you are downloading zip files and saving them to your Pearl. This would not give you the theme on your phone.

    RyanOsh, Welcome to PinStack.

    I believe that the cause of your problem is that there is an application missing in your OS installation. Go to Options/Advanced Options/Applications and open the menu. Select Modules. Do you see one listed that says com_plazmic_theme_reader? If not you will need to find a way to update the theme reader that is provided in the OS 4.2 installation. I believe you may need to find a PC to do this, but I am not really sure. If you do see one by that name, what version is it?

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    I do not have the plazmic theme reader on the phone, but i was told that you did not that file on the pearl to download the themes and get it to work. I cant copy the links below due to me not being a stack level 2, but the links are from srl1447 at mobile41.com...it says ota in the link, but i am downloading them directly from email onto the phone.
    any suggestions?

    Re: 8100 Theme Installing Problem

    As I said, there apparently is a problem with the initial installation of the Theme Reader Module in the Pearl OS. I have found that if you install a custom Theme built with the THeme Builder and then connect up to a PC that is properly configured with DeskTop Manager and the Current BB OS installed, when you Open Desktop Manager it will recoginize that the Theme Reader module is missing and give you the Update. You can not install the 4.2 Version of the Theme Reader Module OTA.

    I really don't know how to help you since you are using an Apple Computer.

    Re: 8100 Theme Installing Problem

    if i am able to get to a PC is there a website to download the desktop manager? i got my phone from ebay and it did not come with the manual or CD with the desktop manager software on there?

    So if i get to a PC with desktop Manager and i sync the BB it will recognize i am missing the theme file, andit will prompt me to install it and that should take care of the problem?

    Thank you so much for helping me with this.

    Re: 8100 Theme Installing Problem

    Check out the revelavant links on the BB FAQ & Guides page for where to get the latest OS for your carrier/device and how to update it. The specific ones you will want are Blackberry OS Software links (by carrier) and How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry.

    You will need both the Desktop Manager 4.2 and the OS download file For your Pearl installed on the PC.
    Desktop manager can be found here.
    Hope this helps

    Are you on a BES? If so, Your BB Admin has instituted an IT Policy that prohibits downloading unsigned applications. This will be a problem for you to download any themes that haven't been signed.
