Default Theme Builder

Please Login to Remove!

Okay. I installed the latest Theme Builder (4.1) so that it will work with my 7100T.

However, upon exporting the theme from the Theme Builder than using the desktop manager to install the .alx onto there, it is not working.

The Alx file is 418bytes and the .cod file is 204kb. What is wrong?

The themes built by theme builder can only be loaded onto BlackBerrys running OS v4.1. The 7100t runs v4.0 and there is no v4.1 out for it today. Perhaps in a few months.

Ah. that would explain it.
I had been scanning the net about this and turned up another forum that said I needed 4.1 running. I thought they meant the edition of the software on the PC, not the actual BB itself.

Well hopefully I will know when the upgrade comes out. I assume I should check BB's site for that in a few months.

Handheld updates are on the specific carrier's web site.
There is a sticky thread at the top of the General BlackBerry Discussion with the URLs for every carrier.

Hmm

My desktop manager software upgraded last night. I doubt that will allow me to get the themes onto my unit. At any case, how would i see the OS that my handheld uses?

Options / Status. You can not get the new themes to your BB until it is upgraded to v4.1, regardless of the Desktop Manager version. Again, that is not available for the 7100t.
