Question What themes will work with 4.5 os Orange UK

Please Login to Remove!

I installed and loved 4.5 os, but when I installed a 4.2 theme it nuked my phone. I worked it back to T-Mobiles 4.2. Just curious...

I would like a BB BOLD theme, but don't want to nuke the phone again.

BTW - 8320

Look for Curve themes specifically stating that they were exported for OS 4.5...

Several sites provide free themes compatible with 4.5. I've recently downloaded and have safely used themes from...

Free Blackberry Themes For 8100 8300 8800 New 4.5 Plazmic
BlueRoomSolution
Themes4BB.com| Free BlackBerry Themes| Multimedia For Your Berry
Free BlackBerry Themes - PinStack.com - BlackBerry forums

Some of these sites require registration (which is free).
Before you download just make sure it's compatible with your BB and your OS. I've also used themes on my 8310 (4.5.0.55) that were designed for 4.2.2. The ones that I've heard cause very serious problems for 4.5 users are RIM's Today Plus and RIM's Surreal, though I'm sure there are more.

Also, I found that some 4.5 themes didn't work until I reinstalled all the BB Dimension themes.

Don't always expect a question to be answered within hours. Sometimes I'm lucky and get very fast answers, even in minutes. Other times, it takes days.

Out of curiosity, what theme did you install that nuked you phone? Was it a Bottom Zen, L, or Today Plus theme? Or was it a standard Icon, Today, or Zen theme? I also have an 8320 with OS 4.5 installed and 4.2 themes seem to work fine for me, so I am just curious.
