Since that is the case, I have not updated all of the BlackBerry.alx files in my other thread - only that of the 7100 GSM .300 code. I have included an alternate means of installing this theme (below at the end) for those users with a 7130e or 7100i, as well as those 7100 GSM users who have the earlier OS 4.1 software installed (THIS MAY NOT WORK DUE TO THE AGE OF THE OS VERSION!)...

- Download BlackBerry.alx file for CSL 4.1 (version .300 only): Click Here
* Note: ALX file has just been updated to support this theme.
* Second Note: Please do NOT post questions in the thread linked above. Thanks.
- Extract BlackBerry.alx to installation path:
Installation Path: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\7100-v4.1.0.292_P1.8.0.143
- Download Zen theme file from: Click Here
- Extract net_rim_theme_bb_dimension_zen_240x260.cod from the ZIP file to the Java directory under the installation path:
Java Path: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\7100-v4.1.0.292_P1.8.0.143\Java
- Open Desktop Manager and it should now prompt you to update the Core Applications.

Alternate Instructions (Java Loader):
- Download Zen theme file to your Desktop: Click Here
- Extract net_rim_theme_bb_dimension_zen_240x260.cod to your Desktop.
- Download and unzip JavaLoader.exe to your Desktop from the attached
- Click on Start then Run and type CMD and click OK
- This should bring up a command-prompt at C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\
- Type the following:

cd Desktop <enter> (don't type <enter> - just push it)
JavaLoader.exe -u load net_rim_theme_bb_dimension_zen_240x260.cod <enter>

* Note: Here is an example of the DOS/command-prompt:

C:\Documents and Settings\username>cd desktop

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop>

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop>JavaLoader.exe -u load net_rim_theme_bb_dimension_zen_240x260.cod


Note: This link has not been tested by myself.
how do turn the zen theme to a axl file? it still reads as a cod file?
