Talking Pocketmac theme and apps not working? This sux, but worked for me

Please Login to Remove!

I have found that about 1/4 of apps and themes i try to install via pocket mac do not work. They will seemingly install correctly, and even after a batt pull the app does no show, but will be loaded on the phone in options--advanced--apps.

When I fist got my 8100 I did a mac sync fist off, but then was having troubles installing OTA themes. They would download ok, and say installed ok, but would not show in my themes list. They were however, showing up when you look at your apps in settings. (I did about 8 battery pulls)

Now here is where it gets wierder. I did an OS upgrade on a PC, (i was on tmo .64, now .77) and after a restrore, the apps and themes that did not show up normally but were obviously loaded on the phone magically appears. I was able to do a few of the OTA installs that I could not do before succesfully too.

I then went home and re-synced my address book on mac, and NOW OTA themes wont install anymore. Its almost like the pocketmac sync effects the way apps and themes are installed and can fucntion (aka file placement, something missing).

So to wrap it up, Pocketmac syncing makes me unable to download OTA themes after a sync. If I do a complete phone OS upgrade on a PC, and then install All the themes you will want BEFORE you go home and sync to mac again.

(i tried a simple backup and restore on DM, also did 'wipe device' on BB, that did not solve either)

Hope this Helps some of you, kinda
