    4.2 Theme Builder for 8700 OS Update to 4.2

    Advertisement



    Does Plazmic have a patch or update out for their 4.2?!

    I've tried contacting them about it and no reply...
    doesn't seem like anyone else knows either.

    Basically the 4.2 Theme builder from Plazmic won't work
    on the 4.2 OS upgrade on the 8700 upgrade to 4.2 b/c
    when you open Plazmic 4.2, your only options for theme
    building are for the 8100, list & icon.

    Quite frustrating... you think Plazmic would've noticed
    that when releasing 4.2 for the Pearl and seeing previous
    models being upgraded to the 4.2 OS. Atleast an upgrade anyway...

    Any help would be appreciated... I need to get this "stock/factory"
    font OFF my 8700 ASAP... it's driving me nutts! LOL!

    Thanks! -Crystal.

    Hi,

    I don't believe there is a patch or update for that. If i remember correct the 8700 4.1 theme will NOT work on any 8700 running the 4.2 os.
    For now i think it's a hurry up and wait thing?

    News straight from Plazmic about my ?...


    "Thank you for contacting BlackBerry Development Support.

    As you stated the current version of Theme Builder with the Plazmic CDK 4.2 only supports the earlier 4.2 handheld(s), such as the 8100. However, upcoming releases will include support for additional 4.2 handhelds such as the 8700. Please check the Plazmic website regularly for further updates and releases:

    Blah... waiting game now...

    Themes created with Plazmic CDK 4.1 run on 4.2 devices. CDK 4.1 supports Icon themes for the 8700 and 7100. Not only that, themes created for the 8700 will run on 8800 and Curve devices as well.

    4.2 allows you to use the media manger on the desktop manager and will play mp3's. Only issue is you still don't get an increase in memory with it so it will only be a song or two before you fill up the memory. At least this is the case for the 8700g.
