How do I store new theme
 
Hi

I want to download new themes from internet and store in my Bb8900.
I have downloaded several themes but I don't know how to transfer them to my Bb. I tried transferring through the desktop manager and it went to roxio and then I copied the theme in several folders. I could not locate the Theme folder so I copied in pictures folder.
But it is not seen in that folder on my Bb.
Can anyone help please.

You need to download them from your BB, they will then install to your phone, and be found to be used in Options - Theme.

but how do i download the theme from my laptop to my Bb, that is what i was not able to figure out. I am also trying to create few themes with my family pics but I don't know how i will install them.

You don't.
As said above, you need to download them from your BB.

Are you using Plazmic? You have the option to save as a jad file, which you transfer to your phone, and click on to install.

yes i am using plazmic. and thats what i want to know about ... i have the jad file. now how do i transfer them to the phone from my laptop? do i use the desktop manager? and if yes, where do i save the file, i mean which folder so that it shows in the Bb.
I tried to save it in the download folder but it was not showing in that folder in the phone.

It won't.
You are storing them on a SD card presumbly(?), you don't use desktop manager, just plug in as mass storage mode. drag and drop the .jad AND corresponding .cod files to the sd card.
Then search the sd card for those files, click the jad file and it will ask to install it.

Themes are not viewable until they are installed.

ok ... i am trying to understand this. so i do not use desktop manager. now how do i plug in as mass storage mode? is there an option on Bb to do that? and where do i go to search in the sd card?

when you plug in your BB with the USB cable, you should receive a prompt on your BB asking you whether you want to activate mass storage mode. Click yes, and then go to my computer. You should find your device, and your SD card there. Hope this helps.

no it doesn't ask ... it used to ask earlier but for some time now it has stopped asking. i charge my phone with the USB cable so i plug it every day but it doesn't ask for mass storage mode nowadays

rajeevsaraf 06-23-2010 01:50 AM

MidnightDraven 06-26-2010 06:56 AM

you install via desktop manager for those type of files.

plazmic is a theme creator.
