Question 7290 & Themes

Please Login to Remove!

I've gone through Mark's theme guide and tried installing the Vodafone theme for my 7290. Once put on through Application Loader (using DM 4.0) the Blackberry restarted itself and then the entire theme was black, white, with old DOS looking icons. The 1980 computer look.

Does anyone else have themes working on their 7290? And if so, what could I be doing wrong?

You accidentally deleted the default theme. Without it, the 7290 drops back to a bare-bones environment. I'm running the Vodafone theme on my T-Mobile 7290, so it can be done. Search the forums for details.

To fix your 7290, you'll need to reinstall the handheld system software. Be sure to include whatever theme is associated with the installation, assuming you have the option to install it or not.

It's an easy mistake to make. I made the same mistake myself when we first learned how to change themes.

I got the regular theme back working. When installing I checked off all the themes to stay on, so I don't think I erased the default but I'll try again right now.
