    Can some help me?

    Advertisement



    I am trying to download themes but when I download to my PC they come up in a weird format. It says the name of the theme but has an icon that looks like it cant find the actual program, like a piece is missing or something. Then in the blackberry tools it says there is nothing compaitible with my phone. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

    make sure the theme your trying to download is for your device, and the file should be ALX you should unzip the file first, and find the file using application loader on your desktop manager

    Well I did that and the one I am trying to use says Mario.alx but the icon next to it is a little piece of paper with a fold at the top right corner with a few little pictures on it and if I double click on it then it says

    Windows Cannot Open this file... blah blah blah and it wont upload and I am downloading them out of the correct section, I picked the 81xx section which I have the pearl 8130

    roos, my guess is that you have NOT downloaded the device software on to your PC. what you don't know is that it isn't on the CD that came with your berry. you can get this software from your carrier's website. (which i don't know bc you haven't filled out your profile completely )

    so, who is your provider? i'll link you to the latest OS. you will need to download AND install the software, then run application loader again.

    NOW, the mario.alx is all you need to install the theme on your bb. after you do the above ^^^ then it will work for you. there is a hidden .cod file in that zip. you can see it if you explore the folder. but once you go to load the theme with application loader, the .cod file will no longer be visible and the ONLY thing that app loader will allow you to use is .alx

    I think you downloaded an archive. This archive contains the both needed theme files, alx and cod. If you can't decompress the file (maybe it's a rar archive), download and install 7-Zip - a freeware program that allows to extract the content of many archive-files, among rar.

    Edit

    Ok, this doesn't help you install the alx/cod files.

    the next step would be application loader. its a wizard so just follow the prompts.

    ^ that is the link for you to download the device software. choose 8130 from drop down menu, then choose 8130 device software (second one)
