    key lock background?

    Advertisement



    Is it possible to change the background on the keyboard lock screen? I've built a custom theme, set the background image, icons, etc., exported, installed it. Then when I lock the keyboard the background defaults to that "road by a field under a cloudy sky" image. Does anyone know where that is being set? It doesn't look like you can access it through Plazmic.

    What BB are you building your theme for. Some versions allow the setting of the lock image and others don't. I believe that it's only 4.2 that allows it.

    I'm building for an 8700r. I'm using Plazmic cdk 4.1 with BB JDE 4.2.1. I took a look at Plazmic cdk 4.2 but it didn't look like it came with bases for 87xx so I didn't really look further into it. Did I miss something?

    Nope you're working the right way. It's just 4.1 won't let you change the lock screen image.

    Sorry

    The lockscreen will be the same as your homescreen on plazmic 4.1

    Cherri, I thought that for 4.1, it was only the Zen and themes that came after it that had the lock screen the same as the home screen. I don't think any of the theme builder base themes have that capability.

    But I may be wrong.

    Richard I'm really not sure. I DO know that when making the theme for the 8800 using 4.1 the lock and home are the same. But you don't have a *choice* like in 4.2 to change it. It just *defaults* to what you have on the home. Does that make sense? I've posted some 8800 themes in the downloads with pics that I made with 4.1

    Are you using the 8700 base theme for the 8800 or has plazmic released an 8800 base theme for PTB 4.1 or PTB 4.2?

    Just curious, trying to figure out what I'm going to have to do to create themes for the 8300 when it comes out on AT&T
    this month.

    I'm using the 8700 base theme. Plazmic hasn't released anything yet. If you wanna play around with it I can send you the icons I created. I had to play around with the sizing and srl helped me too. Stacker wendycharles sent me the 8800 to test the themes on. The reg sized icons for the 8700 come out pixeled on the 8800 and the icons created for the 8800 come out pixeled with the 8700 (thanks mikadad for testing on 8700).

    Thanks for the offer. But I've made 8700 themes before and since I still have the 8700, I have both PTB 4.1 and 4.2
    installed on my PC, so I'm ready to go with it. I may ask later though. What size did you end up using? But I really think that th 8300 may different than the 8800 and the 8700 both.

    Just waiting for AT&T to announce the 8300.

    I've tried it several times. It's defaulting to the "road by a field" image every time I lock the keys, regardless of what background I sent on the homescreen.

    Incidentally, has anyone had any issues with that Smoothie sample theme on an 8700r? I tried putting it on twice via DM and both times it killed my 8700r, to the point where I had to follow the "ReInstall OS When Computer Won't Recognize The Device Is Connected" how to
