Default TOOL Theme request

Please Login to Remove!

ok im really new at this theme business for the blackberry. ive been a long time user of blackberry devices for work and all but have just recently discovered how much stuff is actually out there for them. i didnt even know you could custom make themes. my son actually pointed this out to me. well i went searching for some cool themes and came across a tool theme....you know the band tool. well i could not get the theme to load on any of my three blackberry's that i currently own. i really want it on my curve 8330. just wondering if anyone out there knew where i could find on that actually works. I would like one for the the pearl 8130 also if its possible. my son has that phone and he loves the band too.

any help or direction would greatly appreciated. thanks in advance, mike

I'm pretty sure the pearl is running 4.5. I know my curve 8330 is rinning 4.5. Should I upgrade to 4.6 or something? Would that give me a better chance at finding one that will workor something?

The only Tool theme I can find is for the 81xx series, so it wouldn't load onto an 83xx or 88xx series (different resolutions).

I'm whipping up something of my own - I never thought of doing a Tool theme. There's so much great artwork to be incorporated into icons and stuff...

If you have a link to the one you found, please share it, so I can get a sense of what others are doing with their themes.

I have the page bookmarked at work. And I can't seem to find the page again after searching. I'll get it first thing tomorrow. I did download the file to my home computer also. If it would help I can send it to you the file. But to your point of their artwork and such. YES!!! This is exactly why I think it would be so awesome to have this. Their artwork is freakin amazing.

Ok it was driving me crazy so I kept looking until I finally found it. But it is saying that I can not post a link here until I have 10 post. And right now I only will have 6 including this post I am about to submit.

Yup, that's the same one I found. Sorry to put you through so much hassle.

I'm working on one now - for the moment I'm just gathering images for icons, etc.

I'm something of a pixel perfectionist, so it might take a while for me to get this together, but I'll be working diligently for a while (when I get free time). As a lawyer with young kids, my free time comes sporadically.

Default In progress...

Here's a few glimpses of what I'm working on at the moment. It's going to be a while until it's ready, as I've got lots of GIMP work to do to get some decent icons.

You can ignore the default app icons - those will all change. You can also disregard the stock battery and signal meters. I've got a few ideas brewing for those...
