Sounds like what happened when a theme buggered out on me once. I had to completely wipe the device and reinstall the OS. Try that route.

Which method of wiping did you use?

Did you use the recommended "javaloader -usb wipe" command at the CMD prompt?

Try taking a look in the FAQ as well. There's a howto in there for reloading the OS, step by step.

This happend to me too while fiddling around with themes. I used the apploader to reinstall the Rogers Blackberry theme. Right back to normal again.

There is a 7100 vodafone theme zipfile around this board that contains the files:

Themes.alx
net_rim_theme_blackberry.cod
net_rim_theme_vodafone_240x260.cod

Get that and use the application loader to apply the blackberry theme. Worked for me, your mileage may vary.

Good luck.

Great to hear!

Next time, use a more descriptive topic title -
"Help!, Theme caused my BlackBerry to go Black and White!"
