    Re: Straight line instructions to activate Vendor Themes (Except 8130)

    Is there any way to remove unlocked vendor themes from the device? I went through and unlocked them and got them to my 8310 now I want to get rid of some of them because of memory conservation. I unlocked all of them to see which ones I would like, now that I know I would like to free up some memory on my device.

    Easy, just repeat the process above, with one slight change. Where the above process says to add your VendorID followed by an "|" for the ones you want to add (Step 7), the new process should say delete your VendorID and the "|" that is in front of the list of VendorIDs

    Hope this helps

    Re: Straight line instructions to activate Vendor Themes (Except 8130)

    Hello everyone,

    I have a 8800 and my service provider is Airtel (vendor code 149)

    Platform - 2.3.0.54
    App Version - 4.2.1.68

    I edited the bb.alx file and changed the following.

    <!-- AT&T US filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" Java="1.0" series="8800|8300" _vendorID="149">
    <files>
    net_rim_theme_102a_icon_320x240_b.cod
    </files>
    </fileset>

    But when I use the app launcher, it says no additional applications found to install. I did an erase, selected the backup and restore option. Even then the Theme for AT&T is not showing up. Am I making a mistake by doing a restore? Should I just do a fresh installation?

    My BB desktop application version is 4.2.2.14. Please help!!!

    Thanks
    Allen

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Did you go through the whole App Loader process? What I mean is when the box comes up with the list of apps on uyour BB did you click next or just cancel because you didn't see any new apps? If you click next it should show you the list of new themes it will install.

    Hi Carmover,

    I went through the entire app loader process. Under installed applications, it shows the following 3 applications

    Google maps
    Google Talk
    TimezoneOtapatcher

    When I click next, it says "No Actions Required" and completes the app loader wizard. Here there is an advanced button where I have the Erase HH options.

    Thanks
    Allen

    Hey Carmover,

    I deleted the vendor.xml file and tried the process again and it worked. Not sure what mistake I made during the first try.

    Thanks for your help. The theme is now loaded on the HH.

    Regards,
    Allen

    The mistake you made the first try was not deleting the vendor.xml file. If your updating the blackberry.alx file for a previously installed OSl, deleting the vendor.xml file is required, thus the reason it didn't work the first time.

    Welcome to PinStack kofman13.

    What carrier are you using? What Blackberry? What is the vendor ID you found in step B?

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    WOW. I tried this. Was skeptical (I'm skeptical by nature) and WOW...it unlocked all kinds of cool new themes. New Backgrounds, New Home Page Layouts. Who knew that all this was available and just needed to be unlocked?

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I only tried a few new themes and now I want to go back and add them all.


    You people are cool!
