    Will Theme builder work on 8100 Pearl.

    Advertisement



    I've figured out with help from this forum how to load themes made with theme builder onto my 8700v. My colleague has a 8100 Pearl but theme builder doesn't list 8100 Pearl. Would a 7100 theme made in theme builder load onto 8100 Pearl. The phones look similar .Many thanks for any help.

    Re: Will Theme builder work on 8100 Pearl.

    Hi lagers1,

    No it will not work for the Pearl. The good news is there is a newer version of the software (4.2) that will. Head back over to the Plazmic web site and download it.

    ALso see:http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._themes-6.html

    for examples for Pearl themes posted using the 4.2 software.


    hope that helps?

    Thanks for info but do you know specifically if 4.2 will allow me to design a WORDED theme or are they all icon themes like on the Pearl. Do you know if I'll need to download java 4.2 also since I only have Java 4.1 installed at the moment.

    Appreciate your help. Thanks.

    lagers1, you will be limited to the zen theme (5 icons on left side) or the icon them. that is what plazmic gives us as templates to work with. some say that maybe plazmic will release new templates at a later date in a service pack update.
    go to plazmic, as srl suggested, and download the theme builder for the pearl. since you already have java running, it will most likely 'alert' you during install if you are missing anything (complete with a url to the download site).

    The Zen themes are the only ones I like, the Icons just take away from whatever background photo i have, am I just an impatient retard or is there a way to clear away the icons to show the screen with a push of a button. (not just by hiding them)

    katy... theres sort of a way to do it.... You know when you go over icons they highlight? well on the family guy themes for 8100 ( http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...rl_themes.html ) they've basically changed the non-highlighted icons to transparent and the highlighted icons solid (not transparent).... so that when you highlight the icon by rolling over it, it "appears". of course the were already there but it looks liketheyre just appearing...kind of annoying if you dont know where your icons are located

    Use your USB data cable, and the Blackberry desktop Manager, use the application loader, browse to find the file, click next and wala, it is on your pearl. You may or may not have to pull the battery depending on your OS version. If you do then download the software mentioned in another thread and it will allow for no battery pull.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You need to export it to an .alx file. Open desktop manager launch app loader and go find where you saved the file and add the .alx file
