For anyone else with this problem let me update what fixed it for me!!!
I wiped my handheld to start over and the main difference in this run was that I used the Blackberry.alx file and directions from the following link:
Also, make sure you are using the CSL (Hong Kong) - 220.127.116.110/18.104.22.1682 install and associated Blackberry.alx that jibi provided. This will make it work without a hitch. I found that I didn't even need to install the Plazmic Theme Reader seperately and all the themes worked perfectly.
Do not just download the HK CSL and install without the Blackberry.alx file to make everything work!!!
