    raton, have you tried fooling it (like we had to with the 4.2 OS)? im willing to try and help ya'll out

    djs, the default themes are stored in the blackberry.alx file that is loaded on the bb. (you can see it in all its glory by opening it up in notepad. its located in the loader files on your hard drive once you install the device OS.

    I have not been able to locate a copy of the 4.6 os for the 8350i yet. I have the 4.7 DM installed and I still have the device os for my old 7520. I have looked on the blackberry site and on the sprint site for the handheld 4.6 os but I don't think it has been posted for download yet.

    That's correct Cherri,

    I'm trying to do the same thing as we used to do for older OS's but this time one up (4.6) not working though. I guess we're gonna have to wait till the new CDK drops.

    supportedHandheldOs = 4.5,4.6
    theme.preferredHandheldOs = 4.5
    theme.importOs = 4.2,4.3,4.5,4.6

    I wonder if preferredHandheld has to also be set to 4.6

    ~we're trying to help ya'll 8350i users~ please bear with us

    normal for RIM. usually an OS will drop within the first month of the device release.
    keep checking the bb site and here

    sorry raton, what i mean is that its in the phone and I can see the app in the advanvced options=applications, I can set the permissions but cany access it to be set as the theme, my phone is company provided is it possible they have some control that will not allow new themes to keep employees from spending 5$ for pay themes?

    No need to apologize mrcleen88 . Your company has no control over themes being uploaded onto your phone. I've got all my coworkers using some of my themes and there are no issues. Now, your company may have control over the use of the internet usage you do. However, you can always download a zip file and then load it onto your phone. So, the problem at hand which we are trying to resolve is the exporting we do when we create a theme for the 83xx series. It seems that everything's the same in your phone with the other curves except for the only difference that you're running OS ver. 4.6.1... Therefore, I will try to export the previous test theme to 4.6.1 and see if it works.

    Hey Raton,

    Something very strange to report. I went to the Sprint Software Store (via the app on the BB) and downloaded a theme from there.

    The theme was through Handmark.com and after the install, I am unable to locate the theme.

    It shows up in the desktop manager, but does not show up under themes on the BB.

    Looks like the purchased themes don't work either?????

    Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that o5lariat. The theme you purchased was it meant for your device? I mean, did it say 4.6 compatible for your device? If the theme is only meant for the 83xx series and it's 4.5 chances are that it won't work. That's why I'm running these tests to see what exactly needs to be done in order to avoid these sorta things. Can you ask for a refund? I'm sure if you explain to them what happened they'll be able to reimburse you for that theme. I think you guys are running version 4.6.1... correct? Hit these buttons for me or go to help and let me know what the App version says. It should read 4.6.1 something. Perhaps I could make the test file 4.6.1 compatible and not just 4.6

    Raton,

    I'm not worried about the refund. I'm sure I can get one. The point I was making was the site I downloaded it from was the site that Sprint directs you to from the BB. It doesn't say which software the download is compatible with.

    Under options--> About on my BB, it says v4.6.1.83

    Raton,
    I have downloaded it OTA and I used the zip file. I followed your directions, and it does not show up in my themes list. My DM is 4.7.0.25, and my OS is 4.6.1.83, I have rebooted following your directions card/sim/battery twice, and still nothing. It is in OPS/ADV/APPS, just won't go to the themes list.
    Thanks for your work, will be waiting for your next test.

    I've had my 8350i for a week now. Came across your post. What can I do to help? I like others have not been able to get any themes to load. I'm new so I cannot PMuntil I have 10 posts.
