    It can't be done. Plazmic has only officially released templates to build custom themes for pearls on the 4.2 platform. You can, however, manipulate the 4.1 version of plazmic to build custom icon themes for the 8800(using the 8700 template). Sizing the icons was a pain (I've made 3 8800 themes).

    Re: 8800 Customizable Theme

    Hi cherrichiodo.
    This is my first Blackberry (8830 to be exact) and I just downloaded all the necessary software to create themes. I want to create some themes of my own hopefully to share if they're good enough. I just started toying with Plazmic 4.1 to use the 8700 template and I wanted to know what kind of trouble am I getting into with icon sizing. I have some experience with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and wondered if that might help in the process of making themes and/or icons. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Re: 8800 Customizable Theme

    ^^ haha, great question

    the ones that i made for the 8800 are sized with a transparent background of 64x48 and the square icon is cut/pasted on top of the transparent and sized at 45x45. it took some messing around...that's the only reason why i haven't even tried making them for the 8300

    come on plazmic!! hurry up!

    Re: 8800 Customizable Theme

    Thanks very much for the tip! I hope Plazmic gets something going soon. I downloaded an device simulator for Verizon (since that's my carrier) for the 8830. Looks just like the plastics and simulation that are used in Plazmic. Wouldn't happen to know of a way to integrate the use of that template into Plazmic? BTW, is the 8300 screen size the same as the 8830?

    the screen size for all qwerty (i think ) is 320x240

    the res on those are default, i guess, at 100dpi...i've never changed it.

    i use gimp for imaging/resizing
