    It won't release by editing the .alx file, I've tried. As far as I can tell no one's been successfull in getting it to work. If you know someone that gets it working please let me know I'd love to check it out.

    Re: Verizon theme for 8800

    Just looking for an update on this, I have tried pulling the .cod file from the Verizon software and editing the .alx file it loads in DM but doesn't show as a theme at all this is the zen version with a _b at the end and is about 571 kb. The other which is around 440kb loads, shows up as a theme but won't activate. It's weird it will load on the 8300 and worked fine? On the other hand I loaded blackberry maps and the GPS works great with it, but thats for another thread.

    The unlocked Verizon theme works if you are running the latest OS from Rogers. However, if you use this OS on a cingular handset, you'll lose your PTT capability. If you're not using PTT, then no problem.

    Hmm, I guess that explains why I'm having problems with it.

    Got the VZ Zen theme on my Tmo 8800 using the Vodafone OS 4.2.1.101. Download the the 8830 software for VZ to your computer and then unistall the current version of your BB8800 OS from the computer. The reinstall it back to your computer using the Vodaphone 4.2.1.101 OS.
    Then go to the 8800 OS on your computer in C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research in Motion/Shared/Loader Files/8800-v4.2.1.101 P2 3.0.80 and modify your blackberry.alx to the followng being sure to copy exactly where you already have anything under <!-- Verizon US filesets -->

    <!-- Verizon US filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" Java="1.0" series="8800">
    <files>
    net_rim_theme_105_zen_320x240_b.cod
    </files>
    </fileset>

    Then go to the 8830 OS on your computer in /Program Files/Common Files/Research in Motion/Shared/Loader Files/8830-v4.2.2.138 P3 0.0.67/Java

    copy net_rim_theme_105_zen_320x240.b.cod and paste it into the same place within your 8800's Java folder: C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research in Motion/Shared/Loader Files/8800-v4.2.1.101 P2 3.0.80/Java

    Then open your Application Loader on the DM and when it asks to update your Core System Files click yes/ok

    Your Verzion ZEN theme will now list and load! The icons are definitely the best Ive found for any BB yet!
