    OTA themes not found

    Advertisement



    I just got my bold. All was well until I d/l a new theme from here for the Bold. After d/l and reboot it does recognise the new themes in the THEMES options.
    Any ideas why?

    OS 4.6.0.167

    Hi, bear with me (us) and we'll try to get your Bold running correctly. I see you're running the stock OS for the Bold. I need to know what theme you tried to DL.

    Themes are device specific and you downloaded a theme for another model phone. You must only install themes made for your phone (9000 aka Bold).

    Look over the Bold Theme(s) thread.

    Hope that helps?

    I think many BB users make that same mistake at some point. I did the same with my first bb, an 8130 pearl......tried putting a curve theme on it.

    Hey, been there done that-lol. Except I downloaded a 4.5 theme for my 8310 running a 4.2 OS. That was a BIG mistake, at least I got to see if my red LED and my hourglass were functioning properly. And, RoGro got a few more gray hairs trying to help me restore it-thanks again Roger-LOL!!!!!

    The easiest way is OTA(over the air) just be sure the theme is meant for the Bold 9000 device, navigate to the page with the theme using your blackberry browser and click the OTA link, or from your computer you can copy the link and paste it in an email and send it to your BB and click the link from the BB and you will see the install option. Sometimes on your first OTA install you need to do a battery pull to make it appear in your themes list in Options.

    If the theme is a zip file, save it to your computer, unzip it/extract the files, then use the Application Loader in the Desktop Manager to install it.

    Let us know if you need more help
