Default So I modified my blackberry.alx file to get carrier themes, and...

Please Login to Remove!

I saw something funny.

The preview pic for the Cingular theme shows "ROGERS" as the operator. :p

I assume they took the screenshot in ON with a Robbers card in the device.

d_fisher located it for me. I had missed it on T-Mobile's site.

I did note that some .cod files were missing for a few of the themes in the ALX, thus they didn't load. I have a feeling once another carrier gets the 8100 out the rest will be available.

I currently have Cingular, Orange, T-Mobile Europe Zen, and Vodafone Today working in addition to T-Mobile Zen and the standard ones. O2 and other Vodafone COD files were not present.

Yeah, that is funny.

I think my favorite theme so far is the T-Mobile Europe Zen (white 'n pink).

Sure.

DISCLAIMER: This code is only for the 8100/Pearl. It will NOT work any other series. If you do not know how to do this modification, do not attempt it, and don't ask me how. I won't respond to any PM's requesting assistance. There are other threads on the forum with instructions on modifying ALX files, please search for them if you wish to do this.

Thanks mate. Worked like a charm. The pink zen is cool, but I like the dimension zen with the icons on the left side.

There was one minor problem when I used your .alx file. My version of blackberry maps was DOWNgraded from 1.0.52 to 1.0.48.

Do you know of anyway that I can get version 1.0.52 of BBmaps back? Thanks!!

I'm gonna have to try that edited .alx file. Do I have to remove the vendor.xml file like I did when I loaded the Bharti OS onto my 8700? My 8100 is beta vsn so I have to load the up to date OS onto it still. I just downloaded the OS from the T Mobile website.

I did this and it messed up my fonts. Everything is bigger now, even with the 7 font. Trying to revert back now. Anyone had similar problems?

Hrm. Don't know. I removed BBMaps and went back to Google Maps, so this didn't affect me.

You shouldn't need to. If your beta is T-Mobile branded, the OS should recognise that.

Would you mind posting screen shots or pictures of these themes on the 8100? I'm curious to how they look on the new BlackBerry 8100 as unfortunately I don't have one yet :(
