    Theme Troubleshooting

    Advertisement



    I am having quite trouble trying to install a few particular themes. I don't know what seems to be the problem. First of all I have downloaded a few themes and they worked pretty good. After I got bored of them so I uninstalled them and downloaded a KanYe West theme. I added it from the desktop manager and it showed that it was installed to my phone and then when i went to my phone it wasn't there. Does anyone know what's wrong? I've got a new theme it works fine no problem but for some reason i cant seem to get some other themes =/


    Help please!

    Re: Theme Troubleshooting

    A few things to look at.

    do you have too many themes installed? try removing one to make room for the new theme.
    Be sure the new themes is made for your phone. Themes are device specific.

    remember to pull the battery and re-start the phone after each new theme install.

    Consider trying to install the theme OTA maybe there is an issue with the DM install files?

    Do try a reboot as suggested by srl7741. When you do let us know if you get an error message.

    after the reboot and if still having problems you could also make sure that you have plazmic theme reader still installed by going to options\advanced options\application

    On the 8100, and all 4.2 and greater Blackberry Devices, you will not see the the theme reader in the Options/Advanced Options/Applications list. You must go there and Open the menu and select Modules. Look for com_placmic_themereader. In Device Software 4.2 and above the Theme reader is included in the Core Applications.

    Re: Theme Troubleshooting

    I can't get OTA because i don't have internet on my BBPearl.
    I only had one theme installed, so i dont think that could be the problem srl7741. After i installed the themes i wanted it . i turned off the phone, did the battery pull and it still wasnt appearing.

    Btw my OS is 4.2.0.71 if that helps
    Someone said its because i needa change it to 4.2.1
    could that be the problem?

    Re: Theme Troubleshooting

    So you don't get any error when you reboot. Have you gone to Options/Advanced Options/Applications/Menu/Modules and verify that com_plazmic_themereader is the same version as your Core Apps version?

    That may be the case if the theme was exported for 4.2.1. I would check cherrichiodo's themes as all of hers are 4.2.0 so should work. There is a link to her site in her sig. Let us know.

    No I don't get an error when I reboot, nothing shows up. I checked the com_plazmic_themereader its version 4.2.0.71 and it say's Blackberry 4.2 Core Application = 4.2 so im guessing there the same version right?

    And for cherrichiodo I couldn't seem to locate where her themes were.

    Re: Theme Troubleshooting

    Go to Search/Members and search for cherrichiodo. Open her profile and you will see a link to "My Themes" Use it to find her Theme Site.

    Re: Theme Troubleshooting

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Tokyo drift was made with an older version of plazmix theme builder ... So it would have worked either way. I am not sure if you upgrading will fix the issue bc mistakenly plazmic also gives the choice in its newest release to export to 4.2.2 and someone who doesn't know any better might export it to the latter (also I believe it may default to that choice).

    Upgrading is a good idea even if you didn't have this issue as you have an OS that is over a year old
