    Extreme noob. Help! First BB ever!

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone,

    I just got a BB from a Canadian Carrier which is Rogers. First one ever, its a 7290 and I wanna add some style to this badboy. I do not know what I am doing what so ever, I have looked at the forums and I'm WAY to much of a noob to know jack %#&$. What I am wanting to do is get some themes on this guy. I don't know how to check if its 4.1 or anything. I do not have emails or internet access, I chose not to. So I am wanting to do it through the comp with the syncing.

    Any help would be great for my noob a$$.

    I think? options/about will get you the info on your os.
    if it's 4.1 or higher then you can install theme via desktop manager by downloading a theme in a zip file.

    Here is a location to get themes in a zip file format. Be sure to only download 72xx/75xx themes. http://www.mobile41.com/Themes.htm

    Installing with the desktop manager instructions here.

    hope this helps?

    4.1 is needed. Consider looking into an os upgrade?

    Alright, got v 4.1. Now what do I do? Choose a theme and go from there? or is that too easy?

    Re: Extreme noob. Help! First BB ever!

    First, Go to srl7741's theme site and download (THIS IS IMPORTANT) the Plazmic Theme Reader Zip file and a find a theme zip file that sounds/looks good from the 72xx pages. Then on your PC extract all 4 files to the same location. Connect your BB to your PC and open Desktop Manger and once connected, select Application Loader. Click on Add and browse to the location where you extracted the files and select both alx files. Now continue the install process. This should get the themes installed. Once installed go to Options/Themes and select the new theme and activate it.

    Hope this helps
