    Re: How to Unlock all Hidden and vendor themes.

    GeorgeCS, Welcome to PinStack.

    The most common cause of this if a failure to install the current version of the Blackberry Handheld Operating System (OS) on your PC. I suggest making sure you are using the latest OS version for your 8703. Check out the revelavant links on the BB FAQ & Guides page for where to get the latest OS for your carrier/device and how to update it. The specific ones you will want are Blackberry OS Software links (by carrier) and How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry.

    Once you have the OS installed on your BB, you will have the appropriate folder.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Re: How to Unlock all Hidden and vendor themes.

    Thanks Rcbjr, I upgrade the desktop software to v 4.2.0.10 and have 4.1 on the BB. Nothing changed, any other causes for not getting all the needed directories..?

    Thanks
    George

    Re: How to Unlock all Hidden and vendor themes.

    I didn't say update Desktop Manager, I said the OS for your 8703 needs to be installed on your PC in addition to the Desktop Manager. It is that installation that creates the shared folder, Not desktop manager.

    Does that help a little more?

    I followed the links checking for T-Mobile (US) and here's a screenshot of my options... as you can see, there is nothing available except for the handheld software, and the desktop manager software. So, what now?

    (Okay, apparently I'm unable to post the screenshot (or a URL) due to spam concerns... here's the url in the only way I'm allowed to post it: www(dot)mikewattsplayground(dot)net/test/t-mobile(dot)jpg

    (slightly frustrating, btw)

    Re: How to Unlock all Hidden and vendor themes.

    Erica, have you tried the editing the .alx file yet? Make a copy somewhere that you can move it back if you mess up or decide to revert, then go in using Notepad, Find the themes that indicate they are for the pearl/8100 and add your vendor code to the list there or replace the current one with yours.

    Let me know if you need more help.

    Re: How to Unlock all Hidden and vendor themes.

    I'm struggling trying to find the file myself; I'm using the Pearl, and I can't find the Blackberry.alx file anywhere on my PC. I see that someone recommended downloading the device software from Blackberry.com, but I don't know where it is.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Here are the filesets for the 8100 Vodafone and O2 theme themes:

    Erica, Add it, separated from the others to the <. . ._vendorID="111|125"> like this <. . ._vendorID="111|125|100"> or just replace anything in the quotes with 100.

    Connect your BB to your PC, Open Desktop Manager, Open Application Loader and install the updated OS.
