    Personal Theme Creation

    Advertisement



    Hey All!

    new to BBF and loving every minute of this site... however.

    Loaded Plasmic and Made some good LOOKING themes... High emphasis on LOOKING, becaues they are not functioning...

    I have read and re-read a lot of "cherri"'s posts on how to fix this. So let's start with the beginning..

    BB Pearl 8100--
    V. 4.2.1.96

    PL. 2.3.0.78

    --- --- --- --- --- ---
    Created a theme using *.alx and under 4.2 encoding.

    Transfered, to BB and now can see the theme under Apps but not under themes. Changed rules to ALLOW all ( as cherri said ) and still no avail.

    Help anyone?

    Which 4.2 encoding? 4.2.0, 4.2.1 or 4.2.2? it makes a big difference. There was an problem with the Initial issue of Pearls where the Plazmic Theme Reader didn't install correctly with the Device Software. You may need to go back now and download and install to the PC the Device software package.

    Re: Personal Theme Creation

    I have tried all 4.2 4.2 and 4.1...

    None seem to function. After further research I realized my pearl came equipped with a theme reader, so I uninstalled and cleard the plazmic from EVA (pearl's name) and tried again, same responses from machines, same output.

    Two themes in the apps directory, nothing I do will move them to the themes function.

    Still trying.

    Check in Options/Advanced Options/Applications. Open the Menu and select Modules. Look for one with the name com_plazmic_themereader with a version of 4.2.1.96. If it's not there you will need to download and reinstall your Device Software again. Then Connect your BB to your PC and it should give you a dialog box about update available when you open Desktop manager.

    have you, at anytime, upgraded the device software for your pearl? if so, then that should have taken care of the 'separate theme reader' issue.
    as richard said above, you will need to reload the OS on your pc and run application loader. it will reload the theme reader onto your bb.

    i have found the ONLY way for a theme to work --across the board-- is to export it as alx and choose the 4.2.0.

    Re: Personal Theme Creation

    Thank you both for your help --

    I checked the current version and it matches 4.2.1.96.

    In response to you Cherri -- I recently updated EVA 2 nights ago thanks to your thread. I've been working on this for a while... I will try *.alx and 4.2.0
