    Unlock ALLL Vendor Codes

    Advertisement



    I went through the steps and unlocked some extra themes. However, In addition to my usual BB Dim, BB today and cingular I was only able to add, O2Today, O2 Zen, Orange, Sprint which does not have any themes, Telefonica Zen, TIM Zen, Tmobile Zen, another T mobile Zen, Verizon, which does not have any themes and Vodafone Today, I was expecting more themes and for Sprint and Verizon I dont know what the deal is there.

    Question, when unlocking all vendor themes are the ones I mentioned above standard are am I missing something??????????????????????????

    Re: Unlock ALLL Vendor Codes

    Well I just unlocked the themes for my friends 8700 on the 4.2 and the only extra ones I got was bell, O2 and vodaphone today. That's it... Gotta figure out a way to get the other Vodaphone one he wants.

    Edit: Nevermind the today was the one he wanted... LOL

    Re: Unlock ALLL Vendor Codes

    What does it mean to 'unlock' a theme or a vendor code? I'm on VZW w/ an 8703e. What am I missing out on?

    josh the themes are in your phone. from other vendors, unlocking them is a way to use other vendor themes on your carriers phone that's all. as if you have a tmo phone you can run the vodaphone theme from the uk
    Been a long while since last login. Sorry all, adjusting to a new life is great and hell at the same time!!

    orange
    sprint
    telefonica zen
    tim zen
    t-mobile zen
    t-mobile zen
    verizon
    vodafone today


    you cannot activate the sprint or verizon on the 8800. they are for other models.

    The Sprint and Verizon themes won't be on a GSM device, they are CDMA. Curious to see if the others (Vodafone, etc.) will be on the 8830...

    even editing the alx to remove vendor IDs and removing vendor xml file wont free up the Verizon and Sprint themes. They will appear as a selection on your screen but will not load. Must be the CDMA vs GSM requirements.

    Re: Unlock ALLL Vendor Codes

    I did the ALX edit and got ATT, Bell, O2 icon, Orange, Sprint, Verizon and Vodafone..... I think you can turn on more vendor themes, but you also need the files to add to your loader folder. IS that correct?

    I dont have the files for TMO, telefonica, cingular.....etc.

    Can someone PM the files or email me at bigman200563@yahoo.com?

    Thx !!!!!

    Re: Unlock ALLL Vendor Codes

    all files are already built into the OS. removing all vendoir codes will give you all thats available with your existing OS. No other files to send for the TMO telefonica, cingular, etc. If its a new OS ATT now replaced the cingular.

    Re: Unlock ALLL Vendor Codes

    hmm... I thought the ALX file referenced a net_rim_theme file. Each vendor naturally has a numbered file. In the Chinese OS, I didn't have files for those other vendor files.... Does it depend on the OS install which files are pre-included??

    Re: Unlock ALLL Vendor Codes

    If anyone is attempting this with a Rogers BB, the vendor code is 107. I have unlocked all of them and as mentioned above the Bell, Verizon and Sprint will not load up. Which kinda sucks because Verizon has a nice theme.
