So you downloaded them to your computer, or to your BlackBerry?

I'm not registered there, but I think the themes are meant to be downloaded directly to your BlackBerry though your browser. Someone correct me if that's not right.

Yes, they are OTA links and need to be downloaded/installed via the Blackberry Browser. Hope that helps.

fvck that doesn't help, that makes it worse because i can't do that. i just want a cool theme with the 4.2 and it's becoming difficult to do

Why can't you do it? Do you not have a BlackBerry data plan? If not, you are stuck.

yeah i didn't get the data plan. i'm a student and the extra ~360 it was going to be i found it to be not worth it.

then i wont get my themes from them, i've had a tough time finding 4.2's :cry:

anyone? i was going to do the 4.5 download but i read in the thread that some people were having problems with it, so i didn't feel like it.

Ulukia 01-21-2009 08:23 PM

I've used 4.5.0.81, 4.5.0.110, and now 4.5.0.124 without issue. The official AT&T OS is 4.5.0.110.

would you be able to walk me through it?

edit: and i dont see the 4.5.0.110

Ulukia 01-21-2009 08:30 PM

Go to this thread, 4.5.0.124, and here, BBFAQ, for instructions.
Go here, 4.5.0.110, for the AT&T released OS. Though the newer release, 4.5.0.124, has some improvements that make it more stable and more free space. Either way, the choice is ultimately yours.
Also, following John Clark's guide is recommended to maximize your free space.

Type_X, check in the Media Center forum here because there are themes uploaded there as zip files. In that case, you can download the zip file to your computer, unzip it and install the themes with Desktop Manager. Somewhere here there are instructions for that.

Edit.. here's some instructions.

You have to have the device OS installed on your PC as well as Desktop Manager.

Add again... this one is better:

You have remember where you unzipped the .alx file to so you can find it when you run the App Loader. Best place is to unzip it to My Documents or the desktop.

Type_X 01-21-2009 09:11 PM

i just checked those instructions and that message was there

Type_X 01-21-2009 10:59 PM

i'm going to try the OS update. i'm dl'ing the desktop manager and it's taking forever, so i'll keep going tomorrow and post questions as they come. john clarks guide is good but it's kinda intimidating at the same time from the regular ~7 step process.

ty for the support

PLEASE HELP!!!

alright i just did it and i'm still nervous, but my phone is on and working. one thing so far. when i go to about nothing happens, why do i not get anything when i hit the about but nothing appears?

Motorcycle Mama 02-03-2009 06:58 AM

Please don't shout.

Nothing appears because you deleted Voice Activated Dialing. Press Alt Right Shift H to get basically the same information.

yeah sorry for the attention grabber, but i had a few posts at the end which were useless, it was more of a skip to here than hey you please answer me i'm being impatient :(

and i thank you very much for solving my problems here and in my last thread, and again sorry about the "shout"

Type_X 02-03-2009 08:44 AM

okay this bring me to my next question, i just wanted to see if i could delete more stuff and i removed the 2 files for push to talk (straight from the clark walkthrough) and i put them in the removed modules folder. i hooked the phone up to the computer and when it loaded and i took the phone out, i still had the ptt icon hidden? i figured it would have been gone?

i'm brand new to this, sorry if this is elementary

Type_X 02-04-2009 04:53 PM

anyone know why i still have push to talk on my phone but i put the files in the removed modules folder from clarks guide?

Type_X 02-05-2009 02:04 PM

i dont want to sound impatient but does anyone have an answer to the PTT question?
(i've put out a daily bump for the past few days and got nothing :cry:)
