    Question Custom theme question.

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    I was just curious. I'm currently working on a custom theme using CDK4.5 and for some unknown reason I cannot export it to 4.2. It will only allow me to export it to 4.5. This is what i'm working on http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ad.php?t=88331

    If you have any suggestions please let me know. I could have added this to the same thread but I just needed some extra help. Please let me know if you know of a way of doing this. Thank you so much in advance.

    No Offense taken, thats the reason I answered in Private Message, it was for his eyes only. He asked the question and I provided him assistance. If you have a question about Theme Building, perhaps you could ask a question as well, and perhaps someone will provide you with an answer via PM or Posting the answer on the boards.

    Here's the directions I used and it worked perfectly.

    1. make sure Themebuilder is CLOSED
    2. locate the Plazmic CDK 4.5 directory in Program files.
    3. go to the directory RESOURCES
    4. select the file THEMES
    5. look for 2 folders. 1 is dimension240×260, the other dimension 320×240.
    6. within the dimension 240×260 there is a file called 8100Custom.
    7. Edit the following lines to look like this:
      The files are located in the Resource/Theme directories, then the 240×260 directory (will have the 8100 files) the 320×240 (will have the 8300, 8800 files) I’d suggest not changing the 7100 or 8700 (is there an os 4.5 for 8700?) files/
      these are the lines you edit:
      theme.supportedHandheldOs = 4.2.1,4.2.2,4.5
      theme.preferredHandheldOs = 4.5
      theme.importOs = 4.2.2,4.3.1
    8. Go to the dimension320×240 file and do the same for the 8300Custom, 8800Custom.

    its not a secret hack as it was found here on the forums so not sure why it all has to be done via PM...

    Sorry Folks, was unsure if by posting it if I would have broken any unknown forum rules, I had the "Beta Rules Thing in Mind" thanks Cherri!
