    Hi all! Is there a way to explore my 8100's contents like you can with an iPod or PocketPC. I want to see more than just the std images & ringtones I added.
    Thanks!

    What specifically are you looking for in your 8100? I don't have an iPod or a PocketPC, so I'm not sure what you would like to access that you currently can't at this time.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ anything that is a file and can be tweaked. for example, I would like to view the built in theme files, built in ringtones, system files, etc. Right now, all 3 can see are the files that I have uploaded thru the BB desktop app. This is very limiting...

    You can browse the email folders by clicking the menu key and selecting "view folder". The OS is "hidden" for our own good

    swoop, You can't view the "files" because the apps are not really files but Java Modules and Apps. It's like viewing an .exe or a .com file using a text editor.

    Hope this helps.

    Well I work with java and php on a reg basis so that's not a big deal unless they are compiled like a dll or exe.

    Swoop,

    It sounds like you're into developing the software further. Have you looked at the development tools available? RIM provides quite a few resources for software development, including plenty of documentation, software development tools, and device simulators. Most of these are free. Just check out the RIM web site.

    I am very interested in developing, I just like to tinker as well.

    I have the tools - just need to install it on my XP pro machine as it didn't like my XP 64 platform. Maybe themes can also be made with the JDE. Thanks for the info.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ by the way, is it just me or is the software selection for the BB very lacking? We have to chg that!

    According to the theme and theme tools developer Plazmic, for anything other than what can done with the Theme Builder, you will need APIs that are not available to the General Public.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ interesting!
    They may never support the 8100 with themes and noone else can either.
    My main interest is productivity apps like something to better handle tasks, appts, & the calendar. By the way, is there any version of Doom for the BB?

    I would expect the next version of the PTB to be 4.2 and I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't show up soon.
