Awesome themes! I like the punk one. By any chance are you going to make these available OTA on here also?
She said she is hoping to make a mobile site soon with OTA themes. So just keep in contact with her and she might eventually have one up for us.
Thanks for the site,
To support COJO 24 and Deviantmissy,
Mobile sites are a little different than the normal web site which is visited from a pc or mac.
Mobile sites tend to have less graphics and when accessed from a mobile phone browser will load faster and offer content that is easily read from the same.
It's just enough different that it can take a little time to get just right.
When you throw in the content that needs to be downloaded it even makes it more difficult.
I'm patient and i understand.
Can't wait for the end result.
Thank you srl...now, would you be able to point me in the right direction to get some pointers as to make my themes avalible ota.
nice!! i dont know whats better your themes or your picture lol

the .jad file is the starting point that you post as the link for people to point to with the BB browser. You'll also need to place all the .cod files onto the server. The .jad file is a package listing of all the files the OTA action will need to download-- so after you make .jad file set, do not change any filenames because they are all encoded in the .jad file. The number of .cod files depends on how many graphic elements your particular theme has. Some of mine had 4 and some had 10 .cod files.
the server needs to have some things enabled. I know that Apache servers are the preferred ones. You also need a file to tell the server how to handle requests. This is a .htaccess file. Note there is nothing preceeding the initial "dot" in the filename. The file needs to have this contents (build with a text-only editor like Notepad):
AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
AddType application/vnd.rim.cod cod
AddType application/java-archive jar
AddType audio/adpcm adp
This file needs to be in every folder you create on the server with .jad and .cod files. Again, the file name is everything inside the quotes ".htaccess".
I have also found that you must use the OTA installation of the Theme Reader application for OTA themes to work. Seems like a bug but I repeated it in testing. So, upload them too and place a link for users to grab them.
the active link is to the themename.jad file

I like em, pretty bad ***.
Kiss Kiss B-A-N-G B-A-N-G
