Default 8700r Theme Compatability Issue?

Please Login to Remove!

Many 8700c owners who have downloaded some of the themes made by forum members have had success when loading them via application loader. I have the 8700r and when I have tried loading them I have had success with only 2.

I successfully loaded the NHL theme (that I found from another website) and I successfully loaded the Clear Shadow theme that I found here at BlackBerry Forums.

I know that there are two .alx files that need to be installed via application loader. The actual theme goes on fine but when I try to add the theme reader alx file I get the following message: "No additional applications for your device were found"

If I go into Options/Themes the themes I loaded are not there however if I go into Options/Advanced Options/Applications the themes I loaded via application loader are listed there.

I am curious as to why the NHL theme and the Clear Shadow theme worked but the others didn't. Is there a compatability issue with the 8700r that is causing this?

If any 8700r owners have had this issue or not I'd like your feedback. I am not sure if it's just my BlackBerry that's acting up or not. Thanks in advance.

Okay so here is an update on the situation...

I kept the 4 default themes:
BB Dimension- List
BB Dimension- Icon
BB Insight- List
BB Insight- Icon

Then deleted the 3 themes that I had downloaded from mobile.blackberry.com

Wave- Icon
Wave- List
Overlord

Then I erased the NHL Theme & Clear Shadow.

I then loaded:

FuzzyBlue
Orb2Dark
WTC1

and they all worked.

I then went to mobile.blackberry.com and re-downloaded the themes from there however only Overlord and Wave Icon work. No more themes will load as I get a too many apps message yet I have just about 30Mb available.

I am not sure what's going on with my 8700r lately. I am going to download the newest OS for it and see if that fixes all the issues it's been having.

Latest Update:

I downloaded handheld code 4.1.0.206 and loaded it onto the handheld. After that all bugs fixed. I was able to run all themes including the ones from this forum. Games and/or apps that I removed before due to messages saying too many apps running I was able to run again with no issues what so ever. No more glitches
