    83xx 4.5 theme in the works

    Advertisement



    So I couldn't sleep (I'm an insomniac) so I figured I might as well get crackin'.

    Here's my first theme. I'm still tweaking it, making some adjustments and welcome any feedback. The first 3 are live screen shots and the last 2 are from the theme builder.

    Cherri - i figured out the icon thing =). I'll check the dev section tomorrow as there is probably a simpler way to do it. Though, it didn't take me long in Photoshop. And since I've never made a theme before, I'm wondering if I'll get in trouble for using these icons =P.

    UPDATE: 7.25.08

    Some of the icons have changed due to licensing issues =).

    But iBBuuf V1 is available for DM & OTA download HERE for the 83xx/87xx/88xx series. Pearl love coming soon.

    And I did manage to make a bouncy bottom dock (no text) variation. Not quite ready for prime time, but since they are hard coded on custom themes, what should be there instead of the address book and maybe the calendar? The other icons are staying. And a little love to Pinstack for expanding my BB addiction.

    I have a suggestion. Can you make sure that the menus on the applications are viewable. You can't read the words when you hit the menu key because the writing is too light. Also can you have the main font match a font that we already have in our blackberries. It makes it look more uniform. One more thing. Make the font small but not too small. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Thanks! Though I can't take credit for the icons. I'm checking with the creator of the icons to see if he wouldn't mind if I distributed these. He created them for the iPhone obviously so I don't think he'd mind if I did a BB theme =). But you just never know. Or am I just being too nice about all that? lol.

    ya, keep in mind the icons that are loaded here are already sized for your bb so that is the coolest thing. i ran into the same thing when first creating themes. there weren't as many theme developers out there when i first started, so i learned a lot on my own

    Looks like its gonna be a nice Theme, there is one suggestion though - in the "Inspector" > "List" your font is a big squiggly, if you click the "A" (Anti-Alias) button that will smooth it out...

    Looking forward to grabbing it when its done1

    Good lookin out. I will try that. I did run into a snag though. The person who created some of the icons (I did a little mix & match) doesn't want to distribute them so I won't be able to post as is (though I can give to a few friends =p). I'll get something good out though.

    This is kind of addicting.

    Whoa whoa whoa! I'm still a newbie. =). Yes, I fully plan on *trying* to make those at some point, but this is my first theme ever so I want to get a feel for the program. Baby steps. =)

    I'm going to start a new thread with the links in just a minute. I'm calling it iBBuuf...I'll explain the name also.
