You probably haven't downloaded the Device Software package for your BlackBerry and installed it on your PC. You can find it by following the link for your carrier in this thread, BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites.

I am new to theme building, I really like being able to make themes the way I want them. I am struggling to build icons and so I have been using some that people have shared. I love the blue silk icons and want to know if there is a SIMPLE, (I stress simple because I am not a well versed computer person and I need something with detailed instructions) way to change the colors of the icons.

So I am totally new to this. I have created a theme, but when i try to test it with the simulator or put it on my phone i can not get it to work. The simulator guide says to change the directory in the command window, but the command window will not allow me to type anything in. When i try and export it to a .alx and use DM to add it to my Blackberry 8130, it says there is no available applications for this device. I could really use some help as i am getting lost is all these threads. Thanks

I have been trying to figure out how to make themes for my 8300. I have been reading through this and I went into my plazmic program and I went to view to change the plastic for the version of my phone, the only option I have there is for an 8100. I have version 2.0 of PTB do I need a different version, or am I just having a blonde moment???...lol
05-28-2008, 01:32 PM
Which Version of PTB do you have. 4.2.0, 4.2.1 or 4.2.2, For the CUrve you need 4.2.1 or 4.2.2. The will both have basic multiple thm files for the Curve. I would get 4.2.2

downloaded .thm files, can PlazmicCDK convert to ALX or JAD?
I downloaded a bunch of .thm files recently and I had tried installing the Plazmic Theme Reader on my BB 8300 but I'm still unable to open them on the device.
My Desktop device manager SW is up to date with 4.2.x(my carrier's latest revision) and I'm not able to install thru there either.
I understand that .thm is the 'original format' for themes, but had read that using the reader I would be able to open them. So far nothing.
Do I need to install the CDK and try opening .thm with it and 'exporting' from there?
What other ways do I have?

~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Ian -- the .thm files have to be loaded into the CDK and exported. They are the *raw* files before the theme is exported for download.

ok, i'm going blind reading posts. i want to make the same theme as the bberry (can't pay anyone to customize)... so i figured out how to make the bberry/iberry icons, but i can't figure out how to get a "white focus" instead of the default yellow. and i can't figure out how to make the transparent focus "title" bar. otherwise, i think i'm set. any help is GREAAAAAAAAAATly appreciated. xoxo t

How do i get the home screen icons onto the bottom of the screen as some themes have now?
06-11-2008, 01:33 PM
hey mark from what i understand and read from several place. the plazmic theme creator does NOT allow the user to set the icons at the bottom. but ive also read somewhere that there is a hack that lets the designer to place it on the bottom but cannot confirm this and its said that the hack is not"stable".
