Default Unlock Zen Theme on Multiple 8700s from Single Computer

Please Login to Remove!

I got an hour to do this..a friend of mine is leaving for Miami and I'm trying to put the zen theme on his blackberry 8700..I will know within 10 minutes if he has the 8700c or g. I'm wondering is it possible to do this from one computer or are their specific settings on my computer specifically for my phone that might interfere?

Am I going to have to uninstall desktop manager entirely?

Will a backup work if I place him on the t-mobile operating system and vice versa? (cingular). Theoretically If I did an overhaul with BHARTI it DOES have a cingular theme on there if he was worried about anything of that nature I guess. ..

hopefully someone can help soon please..reallly need to get this done before he leaves town. Thanks

First, cross posting is a big no-no here. Beware.

Technically, you could do the install, but you'd be replacing your PIN and info on your computer's desktop manager with his. You could then go BACK and do it to your's again, but it would be a bit of a pain...I probably wouldn't want to do it. Depends on how good of a friend they are.

If you delete the Vendor.xml file before the install, and replace the Blackberry.alx file (as instructed in a couple places on this site), the install will be find on his handheld, and all the themes available for that release will be there.

I found that the easiest way to do this is to use javaloader to load the theme files..

This is, of course, considering that you are already running one of the newer OS versions.. Mine is and it worked perfectly. Took me all of 5 mins to do once I had the theme files. Someone has a pretty good post that contains download links to the themes. If you do a search, you will probably find it.
