    Help with 8100 themes

    Advertisement



    Okay well, I put the color pearl app. on my phone and it worked fine. Then I wanted the iPhone app., and when I went to put that on I got a message saying, "No additional applications designed for your device were found." I took the color pearl app. off and tried it and now I can't get the color pearl back on my phone, and I'm getting the same message. I don't know what to do because I'm doing the same thing, and I have the 8100 pearl, and I know it for a fact so idk whats wrong. Please PM me because I'm new to the forum and I'll probably forget where I posted this lol. Thanks.

    Did you use the desktop manager to add the color pearl app, or did you download it OTA?

    The message you are getting usually comes from only having the Desktop Manager installed on your PC but notthe device software which is also needed in order to use the Desktop Manager to add applications through the Application Loader.

    Let us know how you are loading them, OTA or Desktop Manager.

    Re: Help with 8100 themes

    Sorry to leave you hangin, I was doing a bunch of cooking. OK here's a few things to check out. I'm a little perplexed that you downloaded the color pearl app through the desktop manager's app loader but then got that message "no additional applications found..." when trying to install a theme. But start here:

    1. Connect your Bb to the PC and open the Desktop manager. Click on Help>About Blackberry Desktop Manager>Device Software....tell me what version OS is there (something like 4.3.0.81) or if this is blank

    2. Check your phone's OS click on Options>About.....this will list what version and platform your phone is running on...it's important so put that info in your profile here, this OS version should match the one found in step 1.

    3. Verify that the theme you downloaded is meant for the 8100 series of BBs, one for an 8310 for example won't work on your BB

    4. Make sure that you unzipped the theme file to your desktop or whatever folder you are keeping them in, you can't load a zipped file on your BB. Once unzipped, you should see a file with .alx at the end, that's the one you want to add through the Application Loader in Desktop Manager

    Verify that these have been tried and let us know if it is confirmed that the device OS is on your PC (step 1).

    If the device OS is on the PC, the theme is meant for the 8100, and it's been unzipped and you still get this same message, then let us know and we'll try more steps.

    Also, you can set up your profile here to email you everytime you get a response to a thread you start, or just go to your profile, view all posts and that will help you find this again if needed, or save it to your favorites.

    Re: Help with 8100 themes

    Alright, well I updated my profile again, and i tried everything but it still wont work. I have the evaluation version of winzip, and i opened the file with it and still have no luck. Dumb. Btw, thanks for your help so far.

    Re: Help with 8100 themes

    In post number 6 here, step # 1, what version of the device software is on your PC......following step #1 exactly? Please tell me the exact version on your PC.

    Also did you confirm that the theme is definitely meant for an 8100?

    Have you tried downloading anything else new to see if it's just that theme file that's bad? Or are you totally unable to download anything now?

    Re: Help with 8100 themes

    I have version 4.2.0.14 (August 27 2006). I went to the 8100 themes on this site and i've tried many, and they all give me the same message. Before i try to add the app. theres a message thing in the box where it shows what applications are there.

    guess you can't read it but incase you didnt already know what it said, "The Blackberry desktop software does not have blackberry device software for the device that you ahve connected to the computer." I didnt think that was normal...

    OK I belkieve that's the problem, the OS on your BB and the device OS loaded on your PC should be the same.

    edit: your profile says OS 4.2.1.107 but on the PC it's 4.2.0.14

    Re: Help with 8100 themes

    This should bring you to the latest version of T-mobile's BB software for your device, just download it to your pc......I'm not sure if you need to delete the old one first or if the new one will over-ride it. I'll try to find out. Anyway, the one on your phone is correct, just need to get the correct one on the PC

    you need device software, not the desktop manager software, look for the one for the 8100 "device" ....that needs to be downloaded to the pc
