How does one make an ALX file? I'd like to drop a few onto my 7280 to play with and see if they'll work. Sorry I'm still in blackberry 101 ;)

Make a copy of Blackberry.alx then edit the original to include the new themes.

lol ...and you have around 400 postings

To create an alx file use notepad (or any other text editor) and create an simple text file with the extension ".ALX". The alx file and the COD file you want to load must be in the same directory. For an example of an ALX file take look at the following code. Based on this example it should be very easy to create your own file. If you have more than one COD file to load to your Blackberry then just add another line with the file name of this file in <files></files>-section.

Code:
 
<loader version="1.0"> 
<application id="BB 7730 Theme"> 
<name> 
BB 7730 Theme 
</name> 
<description > 
</description> 
<version > 
0.1 
</version> 
<fileset Java="1.0"> 
<files > 
net_rim_theme_blackberry_large.cod  
</files> 
</fileset> 
</application> 
</loader>

Did you rename the .zip files to .cod, since you say not to unzip the files?

Just trying to be sure I understand what you are saying.

Thanks for the help.

I unziped the files into the same folder as the javaloader.exe file. Then from that folder I executed:

javaloader -usb load *.cod

Everything copyed onto the blackberry boom, new themes.

I loaded the new themes and they worked great. However, I just did my first reboot with the battery removed and now it won't come up. I wonder if it is related to the themes I loaded? I have not had this problem before. Anyone else that has loaded the themes tried to do a reboot? Anyone iwth any idea on what to do to get it to come up. I can't get it to connect to my PC either.
