    You DON"T DOWNLOAD them to your pearl, but INSTAL through the Application loader.

    You probably don't have the Theme Reader installed yet. This has been a problem with the first installation on some Pearls. Check the procedure in Post #83 in the 8100 Theme Problems/Issues thread. If that doesn't work, let us know.

    is there anybody that can help me?

    i have the 8100
    i downloaded the themes to my computor
    Unzipped them
    downloaded to my bb with the desktop
    went into my phone... options, themes...
    and there's nothing on my themes list...
    *i did download the reader too.

    My question, why isn't it in my themes list?
    This is like my third post or more about this problem, and each time i come back to this site, my posts are missing... maybe someone can pm me.
    I'm about to give up.. i really want some themes on my phone.

    What you have to do is a cold re-boot (pull battery out for 30 sec or more then put back in and let phone load back up again). This should make the themes show up in the list next time you look.

    Hope this helps,

    c2k, You say you loaded the Theme Reader also. What version did you load? Check in Options/Advanced Options/Applications. The Theme Builder for the Pearl is included in the OS install package so you don't have to install one seperately. You will need to delete the Theme Reader from the location you used to install it, Reconnect your BB to the PC and Open Desktop manager. If you get a dialog box about Theme Reader update available click the Install Now. If not then Open Applications Loader, Uncheck the Theme Reader and continue the process to remove it from your BB. Then try the whole procedure again. You should get the Dialog Box this time.

    Let us know the progress you make.

    Re: Help with themes for 8100, zip files

    Did you actually follow the procedure in the referenced post? When you did, what version of the theme reader is listed? If you installed the version of the Theme Reader that is for the OS 4.1 Theme Builder you will not be able to see your Themes.

    That Theme Reader must be removed, both from your PC and From your BB. Only then will you be able to get the theme reader that is in your OS installation files to load.

    Multiple threads and posts on this specific problem have been combined in to one thread in order to keep track of the progress on solving it. It was getting just too hard to follow with all the separate posts and threads. Please keep it in this thread.

    Thank you

    Re: Help with themes for 8100, zip files

    sorry about the multiple threads. I'm thinking logically now that it may be the theme reader that is the problem. I'm gonna give it a shot again and see what happens.

    i have plazmic theme reader 1.1.0.14
    maybe that's the issue?

    just did the whole process again, no themes in the themes list... and no dialog pop up about a new update.
    could it be that i downloaded a bad plazmic theme reader? sorry if i sound like a idiot, but i followed all the instructions given to me, and i still can not see the themes in my themes list...

    Follow the advice I gave you in the PM, and report back here. Let us know if that got it corrected. You have installed the Theme reader for 4.1 devices and somehow confused the Apps loader. Now we need to figure out how to unconfuse it.

    please be patient with me. I really really appreciate your help.
    where would i find the download for the current version of my BB OS? I have the 8100. Maybe my app loader is confused?
    I deleted the theme reader.. now i just want to start fresh.

    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.
