    Re: How can I upload/share a theme I just created w/ Plazmic ThemeBuilder?!

    Export alx/cod. Put these 2 files in a ZIP-archiv. If you don't have WinZIP, or WinRAR, get UltimateZip 2007, or 7-zip, both are Freeware. Start a new thread and attach this Zip File to it. Simply click on "Manage Attachments" and upload your File, it will be automatically attached to your posting :)

    If you want to show Screenshots, too, you have to use the "Devive Simulator" to create them. Copy your exported cod file to the simulator directory, should be: \Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Device Simulators ***\***\. Start the simulator and activate your theme as you would do with your real BB. Click Edit > Save LCD Snapshot. Attach these PNGs to your thread, as you did with the Zip File.

    for EVERYTHING I use the Print-Key (Alt+Print captures the actual window only) - paste in gfx-app and save the image

    i am extremely confused...i downloaded plazmic yesterday (3 attempts later it just mysteriously worked) and have created a theme...saved it as a theme file, and have exported it as a jad and axl file...(why it saved multiple copies i dont know)j

    and now i want to get the theme on my BB 83xx ..as you can see i posted it in a zip file here but when i go to this url on my BB it doesnt show up...can someone please help me.

    im pretty good on computers but some of this terminology escapes me so i thank you for your patience in advance..

    Hi, here's what you want to do. Export the theme as jad in a folder containing all of them and send them to cherrichiodo if you want them posted for ota availability. If you want to share the theme as a alx/cod for desktop manager installation then export it as alx and then also save it on a folder then zip it and post the theme in the designated themes sections for instance, Free Blackberry themes>83xx theme>music/movies themes>sports>etc...just pick one that your theme falls under and post it. Good luck. Also, please update your profile so we know what you're using, just a little advise . Oh, when posting a theme be sure to include in the thread what device the theme's made for and its OS as well as its name if you have any abd add pictures of it using captureit or using mwsnap and post them using flickr or photobucket. Now, good luck
