    use this thread as a guide. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...or_themes.html once you open the alx file in notepad all you are doing is changing all vendor codes to your specific carrier code. TMO is 100. To find yours on the main screen hold ALT + EACE. this will tell you the vendor code that you need to add to the different modules. so for instance in the first area in the attached thread that is in red change vendor = 102 to vendor = whatever your vendor id is.

    Re: 8100 Pearl Unlock Themes so whats the steps

    I'm currently in China and bought recently a BB pearl 8100. All BB in China come from Europe and US, mine is from T Mobile Germany.

    Now I want to unlock the themes, but as mentioned, I have to install first BB OS via my computer to be able to find the .alx. Problem is TMobile, or any operator, requires user authentication to download the latest OS, and I don't have any.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Yeah you do not need to get the carriers os only an os for the pearl and delete the vendor file that restricts use to a specific carrier. Get the os from here. To delete the vendor file follow C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader the delete vendor.xml file. back up the info to the pc and then run the application loader to load the os on. Once you have the os on follow the thread in post 2 and it should get you taken care of.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    You can dl the OS from updateservice.t-mobile.net/blackberry. There you find a free download area where you can dl without any registration.

    When you run app loader it should show the OS in there.. click the checkbox next to it and upload.
