    Question Trick ? - Will a NEW 8900 Curve Theme work on a 8320

    Advertisement



    I ask this cause the 8900 Curve has WAYYY more design options on Plazmic vs. the design options for the 8320 series... You think it'd be compatable if it has the same OS...

    I do notice the screen size is bigger, and the icons are different, but I've noticed that I've installed some 4.5+ pre-made themes on my 8320 Curve and they do work. Theirs been some nice changes as far as modifying background colors of more screens and such, so I figured these pre-made 4.5+ themes were done in a higher up BB Model and just able to load and work on the 8320.

    It's quite the project designing up a new one just to find out it won't work so I thought I'd ask first...

    Thanks! =)

    No. The templates you build using theme builder are specific to a particular model/screen resolution. Since the Curve 8900 has a much nicer and higher resolution screen, the themes won't work on the 8320. You'll have to make two separate themes for each device.

    Also, they don't have the same os. The 8900 runs 4.6; the 8300 series runs from 4.2 to 4.5.

    Thanks guys...

    I was wondering about that in particular... so if I did a 4.6 upgrade to the 8320, the 8900 theme creations would work probably?

    As far as design-wise, I can improvise the 8900 sizes to work with the 8320 so it's all porportioned right on my 8320... was just wondering about it installing properly.

    Any other inputs are appreciated...
    Thanks!

    The 8320 doesn't have a 4.6. Even if it did, the theme still wouldn't work due to different screen sizes.
    Proof of absence is not absence of proof.
