Default BlackBerry.alx - Edited Files for Packaged Theme Installation (4.1 & 4.2 ONLY)

Please Login to Remove!

I'm just going to create this thread as a repository for updated versions of the BlackBerry.alx files. This thread will contain the files for all 32MB and 64MB devices, including the 7100 series (GSM), the 7100i, the 7130e, the 7250, the 7520, the 7290, and the 8700 series (and any future handhelds). These files will simply add the ability to install all vendor-supplied theme files available with the applicable OS installation package. I will attempt to keep it updated with the latest installations from the various carriers.

* Note: I will be monitoring and keeping this thread clean of almost all questions. I don't want to have another 10 page thread concerning 'is this compatible with that' and 'i did this but now my phone doesn't work anymore - please help'. This thread is meant for people who know what they are doing, plain and simple.

* Note: On 4.2.1 and newer versions of the handheld code Cingular (and a few other foreign carriers) have decided to "hide" the icon for Blackberry Maps. Included in the attached Blackberry.zip files (where appropriate) an edited LBS.alx has been added. Simply replace the LBS.alx using the same procedure as for the Blackberry.alx. LBS.alx is located in the same folder as the Blackberry.alx. Doing so will add the icon for Blackberry Maps.

* Note: After you've added all the themes most people end up with one or two they really like and don't use the others. With all the memory issues with the newer 4.2 devices I recommend removing unused/unwanted themes after this procedure. The easiest way is to simply remove the .cod's from the java directory for the unwanted themes. I suggest moving them to another folder so that you can move them back should you decide you want a particular theme back. Once you remove or add one from the java folder simply run through Application Loader and it will update the device. For more info Click Here.


Currently, it will have the following:

* Note: These last two installations removes the Cingular theme, which appears to have been designed solely for the Cingular EDGE-based 7130g that will be released here shortly rather than the already released 7100g. For this reason, I have added back the detailed information for the previous version of CSL's 7100 series software.

* Note: I have also included a modified Platform.alx file. This is for Cingular users with PTT service enabled on their accounts ONLY. If you are not a Cingular customer and do not have PTT enabled on your account, do NOT use this modified Platform.alx. The instructions for installation are the same as the BlackBerry.alx file. This *should* allow the installation of the PTT software on the handheld. As to whether or not it would work, that's up in the air.

* Note: Due to changes in the way Vodafone handles themes within this new version of the OS available from Bharti, you will need to do the following: 1) remove net_rim_theme_120_icon_320x240_8700v.cod from the Java directory (beneath the Installation Path above); 2) download the standard Vodafone and Vodafone Today themes from this thread; 3) extract the net_rim_theme_120_320x240.cod theme file to the Java directory; and 4) repeat the last step for the Vodafone Today theme (do not extract the Dimension Today theme, as it's included with the Bharti installation).

* Note: I have also included modified Platform.alx and LBS.alx files. The modified Platform.alx file is for Cingular users with PTT service enabled on their accounts. If you are not a Cingular customer and do not have PTT enabled on your account, do NOT use this modified Platform.alx. The instructions for installation are the same as the BlackBerry.alx file. This *should* allow the installation of the PTT software on the handheld. As to whether or not it would work, that's up in the air. The modified LBS.alx is for Cingular (and a few other foreign carrier) users only. This will enable the use of BlackBerry Maps with your Cingular-branded device, rather than opting to purchase TeleNav from Cingular (*mutters* greedy bastids).

Intended Purpose: This will be a one-stop thread for those users who are a tad bit more advanced than most users on here (no offense to the technically-challenged BlackBerry lovers). I know that I spend a lot of time downloading, installing, and uninstalling various carrier installations of the 'latest and greatest' OS software. Each time, I lose the edited BlackBerry.alx file and have to do it all over again.

Serious Warning: This is not a thread for 'How do I...?' questions, so please don't use it as such. I will try and outline what to do, to an extent, but nothing after that point. If nothing else, this will be my own personal repository of these files, which I'm sure a few others will likely end up using as well. If you do not know what a BlackBerry.alx file is and you do not understand what to do with it, please do not ask in this thread (however, I would suggest that if you are curious, search the forum and find out what its used for in relation to themes ... you may find that you have a use for it).

Likely Side Effect: If I keep this list up-to-date (which I likely will so long as I don't get too busy), it can be used as a list of the latest OS upgrades available, as well as various other 'valuable' information.

Instructions: Again, this is only for those who know what they are doing, who are fairly active in the 'upgrade-hungry' scene, have upgraded their OS plenty of times from a carrier not their own, etc. If you are not applicable to ALL of those descriptions, or you simply have no intentions of aspiring to the geekdom that some of us reside in, then click on your browser's BACK button and exit this thread.

1 - Do your normal Backup, if you choose to not lose everything in the process (I will assume you are familiar with the process if you've chosen to move on forward with Step 1, so I won't elaborate any further).

2 - Download and Install the latest OS version for your handheld (if my list is NOT updated, then do NOT use the BlackBerry.alx file I have provided - a simple PM to me with a note concerning the updated version will be sufficient for me to update my listings above). The download URL is provided above under each device/series, listed as Installation Download.

3 - Delete the Vendor.xml file from C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader (this needs to be done AFTER Step 2, although that should not need to be stated).

4 - Rename the BlackBerry.alx file located in your Installation Path (see above for full path name; varies for each handheld software installation).

5 - Download and extract the BlackBerry.alx file from the associated ZIP file for your handheld. This is listed above as BlackBerry.alx Download.

6 - Open Desktop Software 4.2 and upgrade/update your handheld.
