Default Announcing BlingBall 0.9 beta 2 (8100 ONLY)

Please Login to Remove!

updated version 0.9b2 now available:

Ok here it is. BlingBall 0.9b2.
Code:
BlingBall Changelog

DATE            REVISION    COMMENTS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
08 SEP 2008        0.9b2        added: Disco feature to rotate the trackball color through a pattern.
08 SEP 2008        0.9b2        added: Random feature to change trackball color at each backlight on event.
08 SEP 2008        0.9b2        changed: blingballclass now extends Application instead of UiApplication since no screen exists.  This fixes the problem of having it appear in the task switcher.
08 SEP 2008        0.9b2        changed: blingball_autostartup now runs at startup tier 6 to ensure optionsprovider is inserted before the main application runs.
03 SEP 2008        0.9b1        Initial Release
WARNING: This is for the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 with 4.5 OS only. This application is only supported on 4.5 OS. Some have reported that it does, in fact, work in OS 4.2, though. This application will do nothing for you if you have an 8110, 8120, or 8130 as those devices do not have the polychromatic trackball.

NOTICE: This application is beta and has only been tested on a very small number of devices.

The application performs similair functions to that of ColorPearl found here: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...8100-only.html

Please provide feedback here.

BTW: Some have expressed interest in compensating me for this. Anyone wanting to donate to the beer fund, have at it but don't feel obligated to do so. I created this for the community and my own personal use.




OTA Download Link:
OTA download is Currently Unavailable. Use one of the .zip files attached below. (current version)

Note: There are two zip files below. Both contain the same BlingBall app.

1. The "blingball-0_9b2.zip" simply contains alx/cod files for use with Desktop Manager.

2. The "BlingBall Auto Install.zip" file contains an auto loader application. Download the BlingBall Auto Install.zip file and the ReadMe file. The ReadMe file pertains to only the BlingBall Auto Install.zip file and gives instructions for a quick, simple install of BlingBall. This is the simplest way to install BlingBall if you are not familiar with how to load applications manually using Desktop Manager.

I've loaded it on my 3 pearls and so far, so good. I'll do the black tape over the white LED when I get more time but, for now it's doing all it's supposed to! Again, nice work RGeorge!

Change the color to "Custom". You can then edit the gauges to adjust the RED, GREEN and BLUE values. (hold down the ALT key and move the trackball up/down to edit them)

I could have sworn myself that this light did not go on back in the 4.2 version OS days. 4.5 forces it on with the backlight and I have not found anything to turn it off yet.

John Clark has suggested opening the trackball and putting a piece of black tape over it.

OMG You are my hero! My GF would not upgrade to OS 4.5 since she would lose her color pearl. You have saved us from a plain white Pearl!(or dirty white). Thanks again, I will post back if there are any problems.
