    Question No "Advanced Options" on my 7100g HELP!

    Advertisement



    In trying to update my themes I realized I no longer have the "Advanced Options" listed in my Options. I discovered this because downloaded themes do not show up under Options>Themes, but I can see them under Applications. Unfortunately, when I scroll down to one of the installed themes, I do NOT have the ability to "edit permissions" or a "Custom" or "Allow? function.

    What have I done?!?!?!

    Good question but YES. I am well versed in versions/models, etc. so I am sure that is not an issue. And the themes I downloaded were from here, in the 7100 section.

    Thanks for asking.

    I was gonna ask about the plazmic theme reader as well, all signs point to not having that installed.

    You sure you have 4.1 handheld code installed on the device? Then you need Plasmic. Advance options are only on the 4.1 OS update.

    ktkalb, Welcome to PinStack.

    From what I'm reading, loss of Options/Advanced Options and no themes, it sounds like you reverted to OS 4.0.x.xxx, Have you tried to upgrade your OS lately? Maybe clicked on the wrong exe file when doing it. Have you verified your OS is Options/About?

    Another thought to add, If you do have os 4.1 is there any chance you are on BES? That would also cause your issues.

    Thanks to all who have responded so far.

    To answer the Q's posed:
    I made sure plasmic theme reader was installed but when I checked my OS, it IS 4.0.

    Now I have downloaded the .exe file for the OS update (as well as desktop). Both installed fine on my PC but I'm unable to install the OS update onto my handheld. The instructions from RIM say to click "Update Now" but that option is not available on my PC.

    Again.. what am I missing?

    you did execute the OS exe File, Right? Try going to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and deleting the vendor.xml Then to install the OS again using Apps Loader feature of DM.
