    Question I would love to be able to use a theme today!

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone:

    I have a Rogers Blackberry Pearl 8100.

    v4.2.1.94 Platform 2.3.0.77

    Whats driving me crazy is themes! I cannot activate any themes. 'None' is the only theme that will activate. I even downloaded some theme's, but none of them would even show up on my themes list... but I just installed Vista_Zen_8100 theme, and, by golly it did show up on the list of themes, but I can not activate it!

    None (Active)
    BB Dimension Icon
    BB Dimension Today
    Rogers
    Vista_Zen_8100

    I'm so tired of looking at these ugly 'stick figure' icons. Can anyone help!?

    thanks

    p.s.- in my applications/modules I do have:

    com_plazmic_themereader 4.2.1.94
    com_plazmic_theme_... 2007.05.07.1442


    really, all I want is to look at some nice themes!

    Hey

    Thanks for responding. I did a battery-pull as you suggested. Again, the 'none' theme is already activated, when I'm on the other themes, they do nothing.

    The vista theme that I'm trying to use, the download came with the ALX file and a COD file, I applied the ALX file to my phone using the desktop manager, do I have to do anything with the COD file I wonder?

    But even still, I find it strange that the other themes listed besides the 'none' theme do absolutely nothing, the little preview on the bottom does nothing, just says 'no preview available'.

    Did Rogers do something where you cant activate any themes?

    I don't believe rogers can do that.
    and the alx file is good.
    hang around and see what the pros think!

    I've seen this problem before. With the none theme active but I can't seem to find the post on it and don't remember how I got rid of it. I think N8DBB had the cure. Let's hope he's on today.

    Have you tried an ota down load of a theme? Have you gone into Options- Advanced- and tried to find the "none" theme listed and see if you can't delete it?

    Re: I would love to be able to use a theme today!

    All right, lets go back to basics. Do you have the the Rogers pearl software package installed on your PC? I assume you do since you have installed the theme. Connect your Pearl to the PC, Open Desktop Manager and select Backup/Restore, Make a current backup. Once complete open Application Loader and uncheck all the themes listed for installation. Complete the removal of the themes.

    Then let us know what happens. You haven't edited the Blackberry.alx file to unlock themes have you?

    I found the one I was looking for and one that possibly explains how you got to that screen. Here is the one I wanted, Cool Little Trick For Your Berry. The other is No theme at all!.

    The solution may require a wipe, but will at least require a reload of the OS.

    Time for a wipe and reinstall! WOOT!
    You have deleted the platform that your themes run on, so you will need to reinstall all of it...
