That sucks...I'm really starting to lean towards my 8800... thanks for the quick reply though...

i was under the impression that to change the color of the trackball you'd have to open the pearl and marker the LED that illuminates the trackball/keys.

so what colors are available with this app ?

Red, Green, Blue, Yellow... and soon, any color you want.

It used to be you had to open it up, but RIM recently released updated APIs that allows for the color change in software.

Those of you with the problem of ColorPearl not showing up in Options... are you on BIS or BES? Can you use AutoLock and get to the options for that?

AutoLock is another program I wrote that should show up in the options menu the same way ColorPearl does. See my signature for a link to it.

That's not good... I can't imagine my program has done this, but I guess anything's possible. Are you using an 8800?

The only time I had anything like this happen was when my battery was too low to actually start up the phone... try plugging it in. It might just be a weird timing coincidence.

Alright, I reinstalled it once more and was browsing through my options and found it under the options/advanced.. Listed with all the other options, screen keyboard/advanced/applications etc... Not where it shows icons under the menu.

Not sure what it was doing there, as I thought there would be a icon under the menu. I feel like a retard if it wasn't!

Great application, and I can't say enough about it being free!

Thumbs up metsfan!

yes, an 8800. it might be a coincidence, just bummed out this happened. Called cingular and the tier 2 support is closed. as usual level 1 is clueless. asked if I could use a paperclip.

anyone know how to restore the OS? I did a backup yesterday.

DO NOT attempt to install this on the 8800. It will cause the problem that jjones has.

@jjones,

Use the instructions in the following thread to reinstall your OS.

Edit: That being said, once again another great app from Metsfan!

Also, I like that it only shows up in the Options menu. Keeps it all clean and tidy. I'd like to see the SoftReset app just in the Options menu, as well.

I only know this because I suggested to someone with an 8800 that he try the app. He ended up having to wipe it and reload due to the same problem as jjones. He said it wouldn't get past the Cingular splash screen and then would reboot again. Hopefully he's still my friend!

I'd have to search but does the 8800 even have the different colored led's? I seem to remember something now about the 8800 not having the option for the ball to light different colors with mp3 ringtones. That's probably why it doesn't work.

From what I understand, these's no multi-color LED's for the keypad so no program can change it. I have heard of people opening up the BB and coloring them with a sharpie marker... I cant imagine the results being too great but I never saw results so really I can't say.
