    Installing OTA Themes

    Advertisement



    I hope someone has the answer to this,

    I've yet to download a theme.....but I want to download a theme (OTA), and I've read the instructions on how to do so, and they say you must reboot your phone via Battery Pull........

    So.....My question is. Can you reboot your phone without a Battery Pull?? Because I have the SoftReset app that I usually use to reboot my phone, Will this enable me to install the theme properly?? Or is a Battery Pull absolutely necessary??

    Thanks in advance.....

    try it and see if it works for you.. I have read a few people say that it doesn't seem to do a "full" reboot using that softreset ... I don't use it.

    it will not negatively affect it no.. just if after the reboot if you do not see the new theme(s) then you will know. It should work ok for you though

    Soft reset will work just fine. It will prevent you from needing to pull the battery on the 8100.

    Really??? Well.......I'll give it a try, and if not..then Battery pull it is.

    Only reason I ask is because I have a silicone case for my Pearl, and removing it (in order to get to the battery) causes is it get stretched, and it usually takes a few days to get back to its firm fit...but oh well, gotta do what you gotta do.
