    THEMES: .cod / .alx file issues...

    Advertisement



    I have been trying to load themes on my 8100 via USB Blackberry desktop manager. When I go tot he application loader and select the files I want to load, it shows the files as .alx's. When the modules load though, it only shows the .cod's loading. When I go into options>themes, the themse aren't showing up.

    Am I doing something wrong or is it an issue with my phone itself?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    sounds like you are doing it right rellik

    the cod file is, without really being technical with words, hidden...yes, you need both of them, but when you go to download the theme in application loader, the alx file is all you need.

    with that being said, some pearls require a soft reset/battery pull to make the theme active...but you said that you don't even see them in your theme selection menu?

    Re: THEMES: .cod / .alx file issues...

    Quick explanation.
    • Cod file. - the compiled file that is loaded on the BB
    • Alx file. - the xml file that controls how application loader identifies and handles the Cod file(s) to be loaded.


    Hope this helps.

    This may ba a problem with the OS you have loaded. Normally, the theme Reader for 4.2 is part of the OS. Some pearls have had a problem with it being missing. Go to Options/advanced Options/applications. Open the menu and select modules. Do you see com_plazmic_themereader listed? If so, check that the permissions are set to allow.

    If it's not there, you will need to download a the current OS and install it on your PC. You can find it using the links in this thread, Blackberry OS Software links (by carrier).

    Hope this helps.
