Alright, I've been tinkering around with icons and meters and such for far too long. Can't quite suss the use of transparencies in certain elements (very inconsistent in Plazmic v. on device).

Here's the theme I'm running on my device right now. I have several variations, but they're old and have several elements that need to be updated.

I am still messing with my ideas for different icons, but just haven't had the time to really put the GIMP to work. In true TOOL fashion, the icons I have in mind bear no real relationship to the apps they represent - but they look cool.

For now, this version uses the plain old precision icons and other elements. The only thing I've really tweaked is the transmission indicators (and that was my biggest headache with transparency - what you see here is not what I had originally planned). I also use a very readable font throughout, except in the messages list, where I prefer the use of BB Alpha Sans because it allows boldface for unread messages.

Sadly, this feels to me like a simple "wallpaper" theme, since I'd rather hack about all the icons, etc. The theme developers out there among you know what I mean by that comment.

Enjoy this for now. I plan on updating the other variations soon, and will work on OTA files over at pimpmyberry (like all my other themes).

As a warning, I don't plan on making versions for devices other than 4.5 OS 320x240 (that means 83xx, 87xx, and 88xx only). I simply don't have the time right now to expand the platforms covered. Thanks.

No worries.

I ran this on my 8820 for a few weeks, but now I've gone and put together a Bold look-alike that I'm using instead.

I did hack around with some other files, though, so now I've got the lateralus eye (from the homescreen on this theme) instead of the drab T-Mobile startup splash. I guess that's my limit for incorporating intense artwork into my BB experience.

Cheers - I hope you enjoy it.
