Default ColorPearl Question.

Please Login to Remove!

hi, i have ColorPearl installed and everything, and it changes my trackball color to multi-colored, but the problem is that when i go to options for the program, and select the color i want, it does nothing. Is this feature only available the full versions or what?

Is there somewhere where i can get this in full version and for free?

What operating system are you using on your Pearl? If you are running any of the 4.5 versions, you'll have to uninstall it - it doesn't work. 4.2 only.

To clarify, I tested this program when I had OS 4.5, out of curiosity, and it does nothing, like you explained. I downgraded back to 4.2 just for this program. :D

Personally, I wouldn't downgrade just for ColorPearl.

So we have just to wait for newer ColorPearl version, that supports OS 4.5, right?

to wait on upgrading to 4.5 because an ameteur (no offense intended, just Metsfan doesn't do this for a living I don't think) probablymeans you would never upgrade. In the next month or two all carriers will be supporting 4.5.

To be honest, 4.2 is no different than 4.5 for me. The media player looks cooler, and the camera is fixed (never even knew it was messed up), but 4.2 is faster for me. Also, I couldn't download OZ IM while using OS 4.5. I like waiting until all the bugs are sorted out.
