Default Metsfan's Trackball Color App (8100 Only)

Please Login to Remove!

THIS APP ONLY WORKS ON THE 8100 PEARL WITH OS 4.2. IT WILL NOT WORK ON ANY OTHER BB MODEL INCLUDING THE 8110, 8120, or 8130 (they don't contain the colored LED's the are in the 8100)

If your 8100 device is running OS 4.5 use the new BlingBall app here.

I know there's already a program to change the trackball color, but it had no OTA install, so I never got around to installing it, and also wanted something I had more control over.

It's pretty simple right now, all it has is enable/disable and color selection. You can set these in Options->ColorPearl.

You can download it here.

I plan to have more options at some point, but need suggestions on what they should be.

Edit: Version 0.2 is out, same download location!

Colors: White, Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Yellow, Pink, Custom (Hex RRGGBB), Random!

That's really strange. If it made the trackball turn red, it definitely should show up in the options menu. Do you see it in Options->Advanced->Applications so you can delete it?

Well, that program still has features this doesn't. I just wanted something to leave the trackball on a solid color all the time.

+1 , Same problem. I had to reboot to even get the trackball to change color. And yes its listed under Applications to delete. But there isn't any option to change the color.

You should put an option to have all the lights on at the same time.

Wow, another program, well I tried it and it works well, not as many colors but it is free and all. If you're cheap then I guess this program is for you.

The next version will have a "custom" option that lets you put in your own hex RRGGBB number.

I don't have an 8800, so I can't do any testing on it. From what I've read the other program that does this doesn't work on the 8800, so this one probably doesn't either.

Nice the yellow looks really nice, if you look at it from different angles it changes colors.
