    Hey everyone, Last night after a painstaking 4 hours of Yahoo troubleshooting with someone from Pinstack, we figured it out and yes, there is an alx file in the new 8800 software and yes the instructions work like magic and I have more themes than I can ever use!!!

    I didn't have any problem unlocking the hidden vendor themes using the standard instructions here. I really like T-Mobile's Zen theme.

    Does anyone know where I can go on the web to see what these various themes look like?

    would also be interested to hear where you found the .alx file, I've searched the RIM folders on my PC and cannot locate it, did a search on my entire PC and still couldnt

    Since i did not see it mentioned above *a reminder*

    The the 8800 os software must first be installed on the pc before that directory containing the .alx file will be created. Just installing the Desktop manager files is not the same.

    Download it from your carries web site and when the download is complete install the software onto the computer. Re-boot the computer and when back up the directory should be there for you to see. Then head back to the blackberry.alx editing instructions.

    *remember to make a backup or copy of any original file you edit so you may have something to revert back to just in case.
