Ugh! What am I doing wrong? This is the one I'm hoping to try...

Sorry about that... The ISP emailed us a while ago indicating that there is a server issue and they are working through it.... Should be back up soon.

Thanks to all who were involved in figuring this out (and hosting the solutions). I was moderately unhappy with the default T-Mobile theme (but I could live with it), but now I have the "classic" 7xxx theme. Great job.

How are you getting around the lack of an IM icon?

The IM icon is there.... it only displays the upper left quarter of it.

I have one. It's the last icon on the list.

Oh, okay. I interpreted "the 77xx theme whacks the IM icon" to mean that it deleted it, but that person meant that it was chopped off. Now I get it.

So now that you guys have checked the few themes out, which one are you sticking with?

IMO, the T-Mo theme is the best looking and has the most utility.

I agree with bollar; the T-Mobile theme works for me. I can hide the icons I don't need and move the rest around. And Compose is back where it was meant to be.

What do you mean compose is back where it was meant to be? Do you have it under apps or at the top level?

I am using the 7700 theme on the 7100t. With the 7700 theme, all of the icons are back on the home screen. No more levels.

Oh, okay. You mentioned you were using the T-Mobile theme, so I thought you were talking about the one that came with the 7100T.

Do you see any difference in response time with the different themes? Do they effect performance?

Seems to be the same responsiveness no matter what the theme.

Something I noticed... if you install new apps on the 7100 it will erase the apps installed by the loader.... so I suppose using the DM is the better choice long term.


[EDIT] I just added the file names to my blackberry.alx and copied the theme files to my java folder. all better now.

Is there anyway I could get step by step instructions to do this? I downloaded the JDE but am lost on how to load the files.

Download the files to your PC. Preferably to the dir that javaloader.exe is located it (C:\Program Files\Research in Motion\Blackberry JDE 3.7\bin I think, look for it around there)

Open a command line to the same dir you downloaded the files to and javaloader.exe

Type: javaloader -usb load [filename.cod]

You should then see it uploading to the device.

Done!

I used the desktop manager application to load my cod files. Just make yourself an alx XML file and you set!

datafirm - did you just use the single .cod file? When I downloaded the Vodafone file it had 12 individuall cod files in it (it was a zip file)....How did you alter the alx file to accomodate 12 files or did you make 12 alx files in order to load?

Same with the 7700 small icons file - there are 8 individual cod files after you unzip. Can you get them all loaded at once with 1 alx file and if so what syntax did you use?

It would be great if you posted the syntax for your alx file for both Vodafone and the 7700 Theme set if you loaded both.

THANKS!
Jeff

Do not unzip the files. Keep the file extension COD and load the file to your Blackberry either using a selfcreated or modified ALX file or javaloader.exe.
