    Question 8700g Zen theme & OTA installation...

    Advertisement



    I've searched, and searched and now am really confused. Is there NOT an option / web site to do an OTA install of the Zen theme for the 8700g?

    No, I am not aware of a way to install Zen OTA. You have to make slight changes to the blackberry.alx file on the berry, unlike a plazmic them you can install like a program.

    Ah, I see, am too scared for that. So, I better leave well alone. I've read the threads about doing that though...

    Again, thanks...

    Re: 8700g Zen theme & OTA installation...

    Its not really too hard. You just have to open the file, find the zen theme in there (a quick find for zen does the trick) and delete the vendor = XXX part and save it.

    If you get brave enough to try, make sure you back up your BB 1st. Also save the old blackberry.alx file to something like blackberry.alx.old to make sure you keep the orginal in case you mess it up.
    And if you do mess it up, you can just download the OS again and fix the problem. A reload of the OS fixes almost anything. Takes some time though.

    However - Do not try it if you are not comfortable. Don't want you to think I am trying to strong arm you. It is perfectly ok not to But we are always here to help.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~another question. I have Zen installed now, but from the main screen I can't hide the icon for my internet mail account. I can hide other icons, but not this one particular internet icon. Am I missing something here?

    Not sure what icon you are refering, but you can move the icons around so that it is at the bottom of the list and not on the homescreen if you dont want to see it.
