    Help! Themes (how to install/load)

    Advertisement



    Hello, I have just purchased a Blackberry pearl 8120 through ATT a week ago with desktop manager v4.3.0.91 and I was wondering how do I go from downloading a theme in an .cod or .alx and load to the BB desktop manager and then place on the phone? Also is this software the latest and do I need an additional program to load and view themes?
    Thanks- Matt

    On your computer, go to Control Panel and then to Add/remove Programs.....how many are olisted for Blackberry? There should be 2, one says Desktop Software and the other should say Handheld or Device software........do you have both installed on your PC?

    Here's a link for you:

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

    Select the one that says 8120, download it and run it then try to add your theme again. If you still have trouble...post back and we'll help you out.

    Also, I don't know if you've been through this yet or not, but the first time I did I almost freaked out so I'll tell you ahead of time. After you load the new theme....your BB will restart itself. The red LED will come on, your screen will be black, then the light will shut off and your screen will be white with an hourglass for a few minutes. Don't push any buttons or disconnect it from the USB cable untill it comes back on.

    Select the one that says 8120, not sure why it says (TM) ...but as you keep going through the screens, it keeps saying AT&T at the top

    Confirm that the OS versions match......on your BB, go to Options/About look for the software version numbers..........it should match the download version, Software applications version 4.3.0.91, Platform 2.6.0.52

    Did you run it after the download? Go back in to the Control Panel/Add or Remove programs/ and make sure there are 2 listed there for BB now.......if there are...

    Hook up your BB to the computer, open the Desktop Manager Application Loader, and scroll through the list of applications.....see if the theme you want to add is on the list, but just needs you to put a checkmark in the box so it can be installed.

    If it's not there...then the next question would be....did you unzip/extract all the files from the theme you downloaded?
