    Based on this thread you cannot. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...cod_files.html

    Why can you not download OTA? No dataplan? BES restriction?

    Re: Today Plus Theme (NOT OTA)

    OK, sorry for the delay.. had to write it up and get my facts checked:

    A few words of caution first: Please backup your BlackBerry prior to making changes. Be sure to only attempt these if you are comfortable in editing files on your PC. Be sure to load the Plazmic Theme Reader if needed for the theme you are using (download here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...id=7&linkid=73). DO NOT ATTEMPT to add a theme that is NOT for your version of BB OS, doing so may result in a BrickBerry!

    OK, here goes. There are two ways to add the theme .cod to your OS without using OTA.

    The first one:
    1. Download and install JLGUI downloaded here: http://www.controlgenie.com/JLGUI.zip
    2. Download the theme you want to use anywhere onto your PC
    3. Run JLGUI and drag and drop the theme .cod to the GUI interface, this will load it onto your BB

    Pros: Easy way to add the theme.

    Cons: If you run the Application Loader after loading the theme it will remove it since the theme is not in the BlackBerry.alx file. You can add the code to your BlackBerry.alx file so it stays on the BB though.

    But if you are going to do that then you may as well do it this way:

    The second way:
    1. Browse to the following location on your PC; C;\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\YOUR OS VERSION
    2. Open the BlackBerry.alx file with notepad and do a search (Edit > Find) in the file for the word “theme”, click find next so you find the second instance. You will see several entries that look like the one below.
    3. Add the entry below into the BlackBerry.alx file in between the others (without the <!—Theme filesets -->. Be sure to substitute the THEME_NAME_HERE.cod with the actual theme name.

    <!—Theme filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" series="8100" Java="1.0">
    <files>
    THEME_NAME_HERE.cod
    </files>
    </fileset>

    4. Save the file
    5. Save the .cod theme file into the Java folder which is located in the same folder as the BlackBerry.alx file
    6. Run the Application Loader in Desktop Manager, work your way through and before you finish it should show you that the theme you added is going to be installed.

    Pros: Adds the theme and does not remove unless you delete the entry and .cod file

    Cons: Not as easy to add as the first one

    I hope this helps..

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~no, the theme reader helps the os use the theme. It is a .cod file. To have the shared folder you need to have the current OS on your pc. If you don't have that installed, you will need to do that first.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~look in the 8100 forum for my "8100 Singapore telecom" post and follow that thread. Let me know there if you have issues following it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~if you are talking about desktop manager yes. If are talking about the 8100 OS, no. Which is it?
