    Question Color option for 88xx trackball?

    Advertisement



    I know the kids these days using the Pearls have these apps or some sort of abilities to change the colors on the trackball. Can we do it too? Anyone heard anything like this? I tried searching, but was unsuccessful.

    The only ways I've heard of it being done are:

    -Coloring the pearl with a sharpie
    -Coloring the white LED with a sharpie
    -Putting clear tape over the white LED and coloring it with a sharpie

    There are apps out there to change them but not for 8800 otherwise it may set yr device ito a reset loop. I tried it before. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    The pearl has a seperate led for the ball, 8800 and 8200 do not, same leds used to light the keyboard. Even then nimocon is correct as its a physical change to the LED, short of soldering a new LED in place.

    Hmmm... if it's possible to physically alter the white backlight LED, why not the AWFUL blue background color? But to what? Since it's not white it's not like I can really do much of a color change, purple? No thanks.

    Sorry folks, just thinking out loud. I saw someone post a disassembly instruction sheet for the 88xx series.... hmmmm... maybe some snooping is in order.

    Yes unfortunately those of us with 8800/8300's don't have the luxury of a colorful trackball
    I do have Berry Alerts though...that's a pretty cool app and it should work with your 8800.

    What are Berry alerts? What's cool about them? I'm intrigued...

    I havent found a working app to change the color the ball on the 8800 when I was able to force one on with some luck I was stuck in JVM error loop. Fun times NOT.

    there is a way that you can take the track ball apart... but you have to be very carful because of the clip that hold it together..
    but i'm not doing it... lol

    ...an app won't do much good since the LED is white...
