Red face O/S 5.0 Theme problems.

Please Login to Remove!

I have the iBerry Horizon theme from BPlay.com and when I reboot my 8520 Curve o/s 5.0 the menu screen has a white background instead of the theme wallpaper (icons all present and correct).

I had the theme on my 8520 Curve o/s 4.6 but the handset developed a problem that could not be fixed and my service provider (bless them) gave me a new handset with the 5.0 o/s installed. This is when the problem started.

I got in touch with BPlay.com and was told that it is a problem with the 5.0 o/s and that RIM was aware of the problem and that it would probably be fixed in the next release of the o/s.

I have not found a cure, but this workaround seems to work (it works for me).

You must have a good backup with the theme intact. After a reboot use Desktop Manager (vsn 6) to do a restore using the 'Select data to restore' option and restore only the 'Theme Settings' (tick box). This will reset the blank menu screen.

Yes it is a pain but it's the only solution I can find that works.

Any other suggestions? Also does RIM actually know about this problem? Are they working on it?

Unhappy Re: O/S 5.0 Theme problems.

Does anyone know about this or am I just going to get ignored?

Default Re: O/S 5.0 Theme problems.

This forum is in no way affiliated with RIM. No one here would know whether they are working on the problem.

My suggestion is try a different theme. Or possibly downgrade the OS back to 4.6.
