    Guinea Pigs Needed To Test My First 8900 Theme (please report here)

    Advertisement



    This is in part a request. This will be my first 8900 theme for you guys. I hope it works out. I'm not quite sure how it will run on your device hence the title. Please test it out and get back to me so I can make the necessary changes. The icons are customizable.

    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

    Raton I'd do it but still afraid of 8900 themes. Have the issues with the CDK been ironed out. I don't have a pc handy to fix if not.

    You don't need a pc to download it. Just click on the link from your bb browser under "OTA" and it'll prompt you to the download page. The official 4.7 has been released over a week now so I sure hope those idiots at Plazmic have fixed the quirks if not curse them out but not me

    Ok, well that was scary as hell.
    First. Looks ok, the home screen fonts/text are difficult to read. I think maybe make them a solid color. Menus worked fine, but quickpull menu was all black, only able to see what was highlighted.

    The animation worked, but just killed my berry. Everything from selecting menu to calling was deleted. Actually started the call without going to that screen for a few seconds.
    The scary part. When I tried to go back to the default theme, app error 523. Batt pull fixed.
    Also, beeryweather didn't show up @ all.

    Hope that helps, and I hope you're not offended by critique. I'm removing it though, error frightened me too much.

    Change quickpull to quicklaunch. Tried to edit but no word wrap made it too darn difficult.

    God I hate spell check sometimes. The menu for quicklaunch was blacked out except for selected item.

    Thank you jfcooley. Very strange how the screen turned to black. What quickpull menu? My 8310 is so ancient . Everything worked then? how did the animation come out?

    Animation worked well, looked good. Quicklaunch, shortcut app, has a menu with apps you choose displayed when convenience key is selected. Prob would do same with opera, but didn't test.
    Icons and spacing were ok, no real issues there. Selections etc worked fine, I opened a few programs and closed them. The whole thing just brought my 8900 to a crawl though. Hour glass after hourglass.

    Oh, I think the animation might be too large. I'll trim it down then. Hopefully that'll help. I'll post re-post the OTA later on. Thanks for your help jfcooley

    Thanks for the bringing it to the 8900. Sorry I didnt wake up early enough to grab it before you took down the OTA link. I will do some testing on it as well when you post it back up.
