    Copy Themes from one BB to another?

    Advertisement



    I have a BB 8700c with the original macberry theme from Millenniastudio. I was wondering if it was possible to copy that theme off of my BB and copy it to another BB.

    I used the OTA install method to put the them on my BB


    thanks!

    Is the blackberry you're looking to switch it to, also an 8700? I think themes are model specific...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I think they will transfer with a backup, but don't quote me. Otherwise, you could just re-download them again...

    sgossard34, welcome to PinStack.

    I think you might have some luck with the back up as I7oobie said, but I'm not positive either. I don't think that the original is still available for download, but you can find some remarkably similar ones on Srl7741's Great Theme Site.

    i believe that you are able to use the backup and restore for all the things you want to put on the blackberry, i know that when my bb went bad, the full restore put everything back on it that was there before, but i don't remember about the themes, I do know that the new desktop software, 4.2 does have an option to let you switch blackberry devices and take the stuff you want to it. Hope that this helps

    Thanks to everyone for the responses.


    I have actually been working with srl7741 who built me a custom macberry theme. I feel it is even better than the original. "mobile41 dot com" for that. Mac4 is the one. Thanks again Steve for your hard work on this!!


    Also some info on the original macberry theme. "pocketmac dot com" has bought this and will be releasing on their site very soon.

    you can copy them, just do a "switch device wizard" and do a full backup and copy of all data and third party apps... that's what i did with my 8100, and works seamlessly...

    So I have a similar situation. I did OTA installs on all of my themes, which took hours to find the ones I wanted and have no clue where they came from, and I want to backup the themes on my computer for safe keeping. Also, one of them has a horrible incoming call background that I would like to edit, so I need a way to download it to my desktop..

    Any ideas?

    it doesn't work on an at&t 8310. i had to get a warranty exchange and the aero theme from bbextras that is not availible anymore did not move over with a full back up / restore.
